Book Description

Oct. 15 2010 New Harbinger Self-Help Workbook
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource Dec 6 2010
By S. Villarreal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am very impressed with this book. It is well written and clearly describes what the layperson needs to know about lower body self therapy. Through the excellent explanations, pictures and drawings, one is able to completely understand the cause of pain in the lower body and, more importantly, be guided by a practioner in how to releive the pain. It works.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Davies book has all this and more June 3 2013
By Always Cogitating - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for some specialized help on pain in my knees and lower legs, but this doesn't even have all the information that is in The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Clair Davies (that covers the whole body).

It is also organized in an extremely irritating way: when looking at one muscle, it will refer to another trigger point in another muscle by chapter number, but the headers on the pages have only chapter titles, not chapter numbers. So it takes extra steps to go back to find out where the chapter is. (I don't pay any attention to the chapter number of the section I'm reading. Do other people?)

Additional information is not as useful as I was hoping. There are stretches (which Davies book doesn't have) but no other exercises. More than 1/3 of the book is very general introductory material that isn't very helpful if you already know something about trigger points.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Dec 5 2011
By R. Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I discovered this book when trying to get over some running injuries.

It is fabulous in how it will help you figure out what your problem is and how to resolve your problem.

While you need to take some time off from over-use running injuries, this book helps keep that time to a minimum.

This is actually the second copy I purchased as I gave one away to my son who runs marathons.

A must own for the serious runner.
