Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Updates the 1983 edition to mark the transition of the trigger point concept from a syndrome of unknown etiology to an experimentally established neuromuscular disease entity. Also addresses the close interaction between myofascial trigger points and articular dysfunctions at nearly every point examined. Covers pain in the head and neck; upper back, shoulder, and arms; forearms and hands; and torso. Assumes readers to be health care professionals or students who are well trained, or intend to be, in muscle anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, necessary palpitation skills, and recognizing and resolving perpetuating factors.

    Excellent book on Myofacial pain

    The relationship of Myfacial pain and Fibromisyalgia are confusing to many medical providers. This book explains the relationship in great detail. Though there are some errors in the book, the pages listing Quadratus Lamborum could not be found in the upper extremity book. The Technique to avoid pneumothorax is excellent. That alone will avoid a lot of headaces. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ALL PRACTIONERS.
