Overview


If you have pain, it's important to understand where it's coming from-but finding the source of your pain is more complex than it seems. Trigger points, contracted portions of muscle cells, can refer pain to other areas of your body, so the trigger points that cause your pain may not be located in the area where you feel the symptoms. Unless your health care provider has been trained in trigger point diagnosis and treatment, you may not get more than temporary relief. That's why it's essential to take charge of your own treatment for effective and lasting pain relief.

Trigger Point Therapy for Foot, Ankle, Knee, and Leg Pain helps you understand how trigger points form and where to search for them. You'll learn to apply pressure on trigger points and stretch these critical areas for effective and often instant relief. You'll also find out how to prevent trigger points from forming by making simple lifestyle changes, practicing proper body mechanics, and addressing nutritional deficiencies. Once you get started, you'll be on your way to eliminating your pain so that you can focus on enjoying life.
