Présentation de l'éditeur

A guide to the treatment of pain from common sports injuries and other physical activities

• Contains at-home techniques to promote healing and self-awareness of the body’s musculature

• Explains how to relieve pain using manual massage in conjunction with small physio balls

• Includes an illustrated treatment reference section organized by region of the body

The vast majority of physical injuries incurred by active people begin with muscular injuries that are not addressed by the conventional medical approach to orthopedic care. Injuries of this type are generally too minor to warrant splinting, casting, or medication and often do not prevent participation in physical activities. They do, however, produce noticeable discomfort and, over time, frequently lead to more severe injuries.

In Trigger Point Self-Care Manual Donna Finando presents methods for the healing and prevention of musculature injuries. She identifies the causes of and remedies for areas of muscular tightness and restriction and details many self-care techniques, including precise self-massage, stretching, and the use of wet heat and/or ice. In the fully illustrated reference section, organized by body part, she identifies the pain associated with trigger points in each muscle of the body and provides instructions for palpating, treating, and stretching the muscle in order to release it.

While the Trigger Point Self Care Manual has a lot of good information for the lay person, with good reference charts on pain patterns. It doesnt, for some reason, cover TrP's of the hands and feet. This to me seems very strange as there are some major TrP's missed. The book is also a little hard to follow as the referal pattern pics for each TrP can only be found at the start of each chapter. It would of been much more user friendly to place the pain referral pics along side the TrP pics.
For my money I would buy the Trigger Point Therapy WorkBook by Clair Davies.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent source! 28 février 2007

I bought this book to help my husband with his whiplash problem, and it has been a wonderful cure-all book! I really recommend it! I was able to help him getr rid off his never-ending headache, that was coming from his supraespinatus muscle trigger points. I also recommend this book because is easy to understand and the drawings can help to understand the location of muscles even to a person with no previous knowledge.

I highly recommend this book. The diagrams are clear and well organized, the accompanying directions easy to follow. A word of warning, however: pressure on trigger points can be *very* painful, particularly if the pain being treated is severe. Be prepared. (It's worth it.)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Trigger Point Therapy (blue book) is better! 22 février 2010

I purchased this book first and still couldn't seem to get rid of soreness in my legs. I went online and found the blue Trigger Point Therapy book and was able to resolve the problems immediately. This book is hard to follow and the diagrams are not that good. The blue Trigger Point book is much better.

Clair Davies is the author of the other book.

Update: The best Trigger Point book is The Trigger oint Therapy Workbook by Clair Davies.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Kindle Edition reportedly improved; no longer impossible to use! 7 juillet 2012
Par Sarah1989 - Publié sur

(Update: I originally gave this a very low review so that people would read my review and be warned that it was impossible to read the Kindle edition. I was notified today, 6/26/2013, by another reader that the Kindle illustrations are very good. I have, accordingly improved my star rating. I have not seen the Kindle edition myself--I returned the Kindle and am just using the paper copy.)

I have this in paper and I purchased it on Kindle, because it is a very useful book. I thought it would be good to always have a copy with me, rather than lug around another book to my various work sites. However, the one complaint I had with the paper edition made the Kindle edition unusable.

Unlike some authors, Ms. Finando puts the different illustration of pain distribution, trigger point location and necessary, after trigger point treatment stretching in different locations in the book.

I like that they have all the diagrams of pain patterns in one area together. That way, one can look at, say, all the different patterns of pain in the shoulder in one place and pick the pattern that most closely resembles the pain one is experiencing.

However, one then has to go to a separate page to see the trigger points, read the description of working those trigger points and to see how to stretch that muscle after the trigger point is treated.

With the printed book, I purchased a large quantity of stick on tabs and labeled it, so that, for a particular muscle, I could quickly find 1) the pain distribution pattern, 2) the trigger point location and 3) the illustration showing the stretch to use after each particular trigger point treatment.

In the Kindle edition, it is impossible to easily locate all 3 pictures that are needed for the successful treatment of any given muscle with trigger points.

ALSO, the illustration in the printed book are not the best, but they are usuable. The illustrations on the Kindle was almost impossible to read. They are too small and indistinct. It is hard to see where the pain patterns are, as they are not detailed in red as they are in the printed book, but, rather are grey on top of a sketchy black and white illustration.

Don't waste your money on the Kindle edition; order the printed book. As a physician, I have been studying trigger points and researching materials to recommend to my patients for about 15 years. Ms. Finando's book, despite its limitations is the best I've found.

However, I cannot recommend the Kindle book to anyone. One would have to be able to memorize the entire book, which means memorizing most of the content of the gross anatomy course I took in medical school. I am not saying a person cannot do it. I am saying that it takes so much time, that most people simply do not have enough time to memorize the contents. I spent 20 hours a week for 4-1/2 months on my gross anatomy course, about half of this time memorizing muscles and nerves. I have a well-above average ability to memorize, and learning all the muscles was hard work and took a lot of time. (You have to think about the muscles you are using all day long. For example, when you eat or brush your teeth, you have to think about each muscle and nerve as well as the various physiologic processes involved. This method was recommended by comparative vertebrate anatomy teacher and is the only way to memorize such a vast quantity of information effectively.)
