Synopsis

Pain and limited function of the locomotor system are the most common reasons for visiting a doctor or therapist. Muscles play a key part in these presentations as a result of their function and anatomy with current research suggesting that muscle imbalance, muscle tension and painful functional disorders are at the forefront when it comes to acute or chronic symptoms. The clinical correlate with all such symptoms is the myofascial trigger point.



Myofascial Trigger Points: Comprehensive Diagnosis and Treatment examines all aspects of muscle physiology and the pathogenesis of myofascial pain. The book provides valuable advice on diagnosis and differential diagnosis and contains detailed, practice-oriented information and numerous illustrations of the various therapeutic procedures for the treatment of myofascial trigger points



Prepared by experts from throughout the world, Myofascial Trigger Points: Comprehensive Diagnosis and Treatment will be ideal for all manual therapists, physiotherapists, osteopathic physicians, osteopaths, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and naturopaths.
