    An excellent reference for chronic pain conditions

    Myofascial pain syndromes plague both patients and those who try to provide relief. Criteria for diagnosis and treatment have not been widely accepted; outcome studies are few. Most of our successes have come from the dedicated efforts of a small number of physicians who have made myofascial pain the subject of their live's work. My friend and colleage, Chan Gunn, has been one of the most creative and successful practitioners in this vexatious field. He has not only developed a useful conceptual framework that explains the physical findings, but has also perfected a simple and effective treatment technique. Dr. Gunn has greatly enriched the treatment of patients at the University of Washington Multidisciplinary Pain Center; those who read and master this book will be able to bring effective pain relief to their patients.
