Trigger Point Self-Care Manual

If you are having some pain or stiffness, take a look at this book. Getting older doesn't have to be a painful thing, this book is good at helping you figure what to do depending on what part of you hurts. Trigger Point has helped me with back and leg pain, it has also saved me a lot of money by not needing to go to the doctor for pain relief, let alone the scary medications for pain.

ldeal general reference book

I highly recommend this book. The diagrams are clear and well organized, the accompanying directions easy to follow. A word of warning, however: pressure on trigger points can be *very* painful, particularly if the pain being treated is severe. Be prepared. (It's worth it.)

Excellent source!

I bought this book to help my husband with his whiplash problem, and it has been a wonderful cure-all book! I really recommend it! I was able to help him getr rid off his never-ending headache, that was coming from his supraespinatus muscle trigger points. I also recommend this book because is easy to understand and the drawings can help to understand the location of muscles even to a person with no previous knowledge.

Specific, useful methods based on acupuncture and massage

The TRIGGER POINT SELF-CARE MANUAL FOR PAIN-FREE MOVEMENT discusses methods of healing and preventing injury to muscles through identification of areas of tightness and restriction and self-care massage and stretching techniques. Any who suffer from muscle pain will find her methods specific and useful, based on her acupuncture and massage background and studies with Janet Travell, MD, a pioneer in pain management.

A guide to self-care practices for promoting a healthier and happier life

Acupuncture and massage practitioner Donna Finando, who specializes in myofascial techniques and has studied pain management with field pioneer Janet Travell, M.D., presents Trigger Point Self-Care Manual For Pain-Free Movement, a guide to self-care practices for promoting a healthier and happier life. Chapters examine the human body muscle by muscle, describing the different aches and pains that can result from stress or injury in each muscle, and teach readers about the "trigger points" in muscles that are particularly susceptible to damage and use pain as a warning sign to prevent even more serious injury. Exercises, stretches, and solid medical advice for taking good care of one's muscles fill this handy guide, written especially for lay readers and illustrated with black-and-white diagrams and red highlights. While the Trigger Point Self-Care Manual cannot replace a doctor's supervision, it is a valuable tool for personal health and maintenance and highly recommended, especially for people leading active lifestyles or those susceptible to muscular stiffness and soreness.
