Trigger point therapy is one of the fastest-growing and most effective pain therapies in the world. Medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists are all beginning to use this technique to relieve patients’ formerly undiagnosable muscle and joint pain, both conditions that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits. This book addresses the problem of myofascial trigger points—tiny contraction knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. Restricted circulation and lack of oxygen in these points cause referred pain. Massage of the trigger is the safest, most natural, and most effective form of pain therapy. Trigger points create pain throughout the body in predictable patterns characteristic to each muscle, producing discomfort ranging from mild to severe. Trigger point massage increases circulation and oxygenation in the area and often produces instant relief. The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, Third Edition, has made a huge impact among health professionals and the public alike, becoming an overnight classic in the field of pain relief. This edition includes a new chapter by the now deceased author, Clair Davies’ daughter, Amber Davies, who is passionate about continuing her father’s legacy. The new edition also includes postural assessments and muscle tests, an illustrated index of symptoms, and clinical technique drawings and descriptions to assist both practitioners and regular readers in assessing and treating trigger points. If you have ever suffered from, or have treated someone who suffers from myofascial trigger point pain, this is a must-have book.

Schätzungen zufolge leiden in Deutschland etwa 54 Millionen Menschen unter Kopfschmerzen und Migräne. Ein Patentrezept zur Linderung der Beschwerden gibt es nicht, und viele Betroffene sind sogar davon überzeugt, mit den Schmerzen leben zu müssen. In der Therapie werden jedoch noch immer viel zu häufig nur die Symptome behandelt anstatt die tiefer liegenden Gründe für die Schmerzen aufzuspüren. Valerie DeLaune gibt in ihrem Buch einen Überblick über die möglichen Ursachen von Kopfschmerz und Migräne und zeigt auf, welche Rolle verkrampfte Zonen in der Muskulatur, sogenannte Triggerpunkte, bei der Entstehung und Aufrechterhaltung spielen. Es wird erläutert, was Triggerpunkte genau sind, wie sie hervorgerufen werden und worauf Sie im Alltag achten sollten, um eine langfristige Besserung zu erzielen. Anleitungen für konkrete Übungen, bezogen auf die jeweiligen Muskelgruppen, erleichtern Ihnen zudem die erfolgreiche Selbstbehandlung und machen Sie zum Fachmann bzw. zur Fachfrau für Ihre Gesundheit. "Die Behandlung von Schmerzen ist wie Detektivarbeit - sowohl die Ursachen Ihrer Schmerzen als auch die therapeutischen Maßnahmen, durch die sie beseitigt werden können, unterliegen einer für Sie typischen, einzigartigen Kombination von Faktoren. Dieses Buch gibt Ihnen zahlreiche Hilfsmittel an die Hand, die Ihren Selbsterfahrungsprozess auf dem Weg zur Heilung Ihrer Schmerzen erleichtern können." - Valerie DeLaune

I have such a bad headache! For many of us, this is an oft repeated cry of anguish. Statistics about headaches and migraines are downright astonishing: One in six people have frequent headaches, and of those, one in ten suffers from migraines. You are not alone. Headaches and migraines result in more than 10 million doctor visits each year. If you struggle frequently with headache pain, this book offers a welcome solution. Trigger point therapy is an effective self-care approach you can use to get relief from headache pain. Trigger points form in a portion of the muscle cell where blood flow is reduced and metabolic wastes are not being exchanged for oxygen and nutrients. When enough trigger points are located together, they can form palpable knots in the tissue. Trigger points can cause pain, either in the area of the trigger point, or by referral to other areas of the body. Trigger points can be treated by applying pressure to affected areas, often providing instant relief. This book explains trigger point physiology and then offers a complete program for self-care that includes detailed illustrations of all pressure and stretching techniques. In addition, it provides an in-depth look at the factors that cause and perpetuate trigger points, such as body mechanics, injuries, diet and nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and emotional factors, and provides solutions to address each perpetuating factor.

Author Clair Davies' own case of frozen shoulder led him to undertake an extensive study of trigger points and referred pain that eventually resulted in his runaway best-seller, "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook". Now, this renowned bodywork expert and educator revisits the subject of frozen shoulder, offering the most detailed and comprehensive manual yet available about this painful and debilitating condition, a useful resource for self-care and for bodywork practitioners looking to expand their treatment repertoire. Frozen shoulder, the syndrome name for several joint and tendon-related symptoms, is experienced as a loss of motion and pain in the shoulder and upper arm. It is most often observed in women between the ages of forty and sixty and individuals with type-two diabetes. Traditional medical treatments for the condition, which rely on painkillers, steroid injections and physical therapy, often do little to moderate symptoms or speed recovery. Trigger point therapy, a gentle massage technique that targets localised areas of tenderness in soft tissue, has been used very successfully to relieve pain, restore range of motion and shorten recovery times.

Trigger point therapy is one of the most intriguing and fastest-growing bodywork styles in the world. Medical doctors, chiropractors, and alternative health practitioners are all beginning to use this technique to relieve the pain of individuals suffering from undiagnosable soft tissue pain-a condition that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits. The technique involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to trigger points- places in muscle or connective tissue where a lack of oxygen causes swelling. These points are easily located by general readers and create pain throughout the body in predictable patterns characteristic to each muscle, producing discomfort ranging from mild to severe. The stimulation of the point causes an increase in the oxygen level in the area and produces often instant relief. The first edition of The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook has made a huge impact in the use of this dynamic technique. This is the first major revision of the overnight classic-a complete update that includes new information specifically for massage professionals as well as a detailed discussion of progressive muscle relaxation techniques that can reinforce the therapeutic power of trigger point work.

If you have pain, it's important to understand where it's coming from-but finding the source of your pain is more complex than it seems. Trigger points, contracted portions of muscle cells, can refer pain to other areas of your body, so the trigger points that cause your pain may not be located in the area where you feel the symptoms. Unless your health care provider has been trained in trigger point diagnosis and treatment, you may not get more than temporary relief. That's why it's essential to take charge of your own treatment for effective and lasting pain relief. Trigger Point Therapy for Foot, Ankle, Knee, and Leg Pain helps you understand how trigger points form and where to search for them. You'll learn to apply pressure on trigger points and stretch these critical areas for effective and often instant relief. You'll also find out how to prevent trigger points from forming by making simple lifestyle changes, practicing proper body mechanics, and addressing nutritional deficiencies. Once you get started, you'll be on your way to eliminating your pain so that you can focus on enjoying life.

75% of pain is caused by trigger points, but are drastically under-diagnosed as the source of pain. Trigger points may refer pain both in the local area and/or to other areas of the body, but since over 74% of trigger points are not located in the area where you feel pain, treating the local area does not resolve the problem most of the time.
