Description:

Drawing on the author's 25 years of instructional experience, this book offers a proven, visual, and streamlined approach to mastering trigger point therapy for soft tissue pain relief. The use of direct compression to treat pain and discomfort from myofascial trigger point activity is examined in over 70 skeletal muscles. Trigger Point Therapy is designed for maximum simplicity. Overview chapters present important background information on relevant soft tissue anatomy, trigger point fundamentals (terminology, formation theory, and consequences), and trigger point deactivation. Each muscle – or muscle group – is then presented with focus on bodily location, osseous attachments, structural form, and principal functions. Relevant trigger point activity is detailed, including specific overloading factors, deactivation tactics, therapeutically-related muscles, and suggested stretches.
