Clinical Handbook of Myofascial Pain (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Clinical Handbook of Myofascial Pain aims to fill a void in the current myofascial pain literature. It will provide clinicians with a comprehensive problem-solving handbook that can be used for patients with a variety of pain problems. It provides a new introduction to integrating pain sciences into manual therapy practice. The book is divided in different sections based on region (head/neck/face) and associated pathology and dysfunction (i.e. headaches, low back pain, etc.). This will assist clinicians to quickly consult the publication especially for more complex patient presentations. The publication will give very practical options to better manage patients using a combination of manual therapy approaches, dry needling, and education. For the first time, dry needling and injection approaches will be verified and better supported with high quality sonography images.

The book will provide a practical clinical reference for all those practitioners working with patients with myofascial pain. These include physical therapists, massage therapists, body workers, chiropractors, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, neuromuscular therapists, Rolfers, perhaps some physicians. It is suitable for use by those studying on myofascial pain courses, for general technique reference, at schools, and in clinical practice.
