Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“If you want to handle your repetitive strain injury, today is your lucky day. It is simple to apply Valerie DeLaune’s suggestions to your aching body. At the same time, this book is profound enough to teach an old dog like me a bunch of new tricks. If more people read and applied what is in this book, there would be fewer doctor visits and the world would be a happier place. Congratulations on your choice in reading this book and enjoy being pain-free.”
—Steven Lavitan, chiropractor, acupuncturist, nutritionist, and writer in Teaneck, NJ

“DeLaune has written a wonderful and comprehensive self-care book for upper limb and repetitive strain injuries. With easy-to-use self-diagnostic tools, treatment options, and helpful information on the prevention of musculoskeletal pain, this valuable resource is a must for everyone’s medicine cabinet.”
—Wendy Larson, MSPT, physical therapist and owner of Centre Point Physical Therapy in Portland, OR

“DeLaune adds another important pillar to the understanding of how ‘just a muscle problem’ can cause the pain and dysfunction we are taught to deal with or medicate. In this book, a reader/pain patient will experience a comprehensive approach to the self-treatment of myofascial pain caused by trigger points. This means that it addresses all the other considerations, including the ones surrounding the lives of chronic pain patients, which are most commonly overlooked, and offers simple-to-perform self-treatment approaches and techniques.”
—Jeffrey A. Lutz LMT, CMTPT, president of the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists (NAMTPT)
