Synopsis:

Treating pain where it originates!

Manual trigger point therapy combines mechanical, reflex, biochemical, energetic, functional, cognitive-emotional, and behaviorally effective phenomena. As such, it influences not only peripheral nociceptive pain, but also intervenes in the body's pain-processing and transmission mechanisms.

Here you will learn: a systematic, manual-therapeutic approach to recognize and deactivate the potential of trigger points to cause pain and dysfunction; how to treat the accompanying fascial disorders; and how to prevent recurrences.

Key Features:

  • Clinical background of myofascial pain and dysfunction
  • Muscles, trigger points, and pain patterns at a glance
  • Neuromuscular entrapments shown in detail
  • Screening tests und pain guides for all common clinical patterns
  • Manual treatment of trigger points and fasciae

Manual Trigger Point Therapy is your one-stop, comprehensive introduction to this fascinating, proven technique.
