The vast majority of physical restrictions incurred by active people begin with muscular injuries that are not addressed by the conventional medical approach to orthopedic care. This book changes that way of thinking and treatment.

A guide to the treatment of pain from common sports injuries and other physical activities. The vast majority of physical injuries incurred by active people begin with muscular injuries that are not addressed by the conventional medical approach to orthopaedic 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, 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 musculature 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, organised 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.
