Product Description

Review

Valerie DeLaune clearly explains, in simple, non-clinical terms, what every person should know about conservative self-treatment and the prevention of lower extremity pain. Although the author points out that trigger point therapy is often classified as alternative medicine, these proven techniques are supported by current research and based on many years of effective clinical experience. The beauty of trigger point therapy is that the average person can quickly learn the self-care techniquesand incorporate them into a daily routine, measuring their own success by their steady and sometimes drastic reduction of pain and their ability to return to normal activities. If myofascial trigger points are the source of your lower extremity pain, then you will find this basic book to be a critical tool in your journey to self-healing.
-Renee Gladieux Principe, NCTMB, massage therapist and vice president of sales for the Pressure Positive Company

There are few self-help books I can routinely recommend because most of them either dumb it down, or demand too much prior knowledge. This book is a sterling exception. I have been using trigger point therapy routinely for well over thirty years, and there was new material that rocked my boat. At the same time, the uninitiated can benefit from this book. DeLaune has synthesized a wonderful book that works as a standalone breakdown of trigger point therapy of the lower extremities or as part of her series. Any time people increase their knowledge of how to care for their bodies and start taking more responsibility, they achieve a greater level of control. This translates into a higher quality of life. Read, enjoy, and, most of all, apply!
-Steven Lavitan, DC, chiropractor, licensed acupuncturist, and nutritionist

HASH(0xa563f948) 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.

HASH(0xa563fb94) 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.

HASH(0xa563ff78) 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.

HASH(0xa563fe4c) out of 5 stars Great information about myofacial pain April 17 2013
By Jim Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My wife's doctor gave me some hand outs on myofacial pain and trigger points with massage to help relieve it. It was quite interesting and noticed this author quoted and referred to the author of the doctor's handouts. This book gives insight into pain and drug free management of pain. It states self treatment but it was more beneficial when I used the trigger points on her and massaged following. When visiting the doctor and the physical therapist I demonstrated the trigger points we were doing at home so we got professional feed back. I consistently sought more information and techniques available in this book to understand and help mitigate the pain my wife was experiencing following surgery. This book is an excellent source of information and understanding pain BUT do consult with the doctor and physical/occupational therapists. They are the professionals and will advise you if the techniqus are safe for you to use. I can't stress that enough.
