Item Description...

A guide to the treatment of pain from common sports injuries and other physical activities

? Contains at-home techniques to promote healing and self-awareness of the body's musculature

? Explains how to relieve pain using manual massage in conjunction with small physio balls

? Includes an illustrated treatment reference section organized by region of the body

The vast majority of physical injuries incurred by active people begin with muscular injuries that are not addressed by the conventional medical approach to orthopedic care. Injuries of this type are generally too minor to warrant splinting, casting, or medication and often do not prevent participation in physical activities. They do, however, produce noticeable discomfort and, over time, frequently lead to more severe injuries.

In Trigger Point Self-Care Manual Donna Finando presents methods for the healing and prevention of musculature injuries. She identifies the causes of and remedies for areas of muscular tightness and restriction and details many self-care techniques, including precise self-massage, stretching, and the use of wet heat and/or ice. In the fully illustrated reference section, organized by body part, she identifies the pain associated with trigger points in each muscle of the body and provides instructions for palpating, treating, and stretching the muscle in order to release it.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Incomplete  Apr 6, 2008
While the Trigger Point Self Care Manual has a lot of good information for the lay person, with good reference charts on pain patterns. It doesnt, for some reason, cover TrP's of the hands and feet. This to me seems very strange as there are some major TrP's missed. The book is also a little hard to follow as the referal pattern pics for each TrP can only be found at the start of each chapter. It would of been much more user friendly to place the pain referral pics along side the TrP pics.
For my money I would buy the Trigger Point Therapy WorkBook by Clair Davies.
ldeal general reference book  Jun 18, 2007
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!  Feb 28, 2007
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  Apr 22, 2006
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.
Very Helpful  Feb 25, 2006
My son is a musician and has lots of stress and aches from practicing long hours and this book helped him find some of the worst trigger points and allow him to practice longer and more comfortably.
