The Concise Book of Trigger Points

by Simeon Niel-Asher (Author)

Product Description

This practical manual explains how to treat chronic pain through trigger
points—those tender, painful nodules that form in muscle fibers and connective
tissues. Organized by muscle groups, the book emphasizes hands-on techniques for
bringing immediate relief by stimulating the flow of oxygen to the trigger
point. Each two-page spread features detailed color illustrations on one side
and straightforward text on the other identifying each muscle's origin,
insertion, action, and function. In addition, the author discusses the
physiological implications of the trigger points in each muscle, and techniques
for treatment.
