This concise, but thorough text covers both the theory and current practice of fibromyalgia and myofascial pain management. It provides practical, step-by-step descriptions of both traditional and state-of-the-art approaches to trigger point injections and nerve blocks, accompanied by clear diagrams that illustrate pain patterns, muscle anatomy, patient positioning, and more. An interdisciplinary approach draws on the knowledge and expertise of authorities in the fields of rheumatology, physiatry, orthopedic surgery, psychology, endocrinology, physical therapy, dentistry, ergonomic engineering, and anesthesiology.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This resource explores new concepts in the etiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentations, laboratory evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of myofascial pain syndromes, fibromyalgia, and trigger points, for physicians and other health care providers. An interdisciplinary approach to the subject is presented, drawing on contributions on orthopedic surgery, anesthesiology, psychology, physical therapy, rheumatology, endocrinology, and industrial engineering. This second edition includes new material on the metabolic causes of muscle pain, new methods of diagnosis, and nerve block therapy. There is a new chapter on manual trigger point examination and expanded material on alternative and integrative medicine. Edward Rachlin teaches orthopedic surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and at New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases. Isabel Rachlin is a physical therapist.
