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
