Book Description

1 Jan 1992 0683083678 978-0683083675
Volume 1 provided a thorough understanding of what myofascial pain actually is, and discussed the approach to effective diagnosis and treatment of the syndrome from the waist up. This second volume offers the same effective approach for the lower body muscles. It includes features and reviews of special topics not discussed in other literature. These include an extensive review of the causes of functional scoliosis, and how to identify them clinically; a review of the lower limb length inequality that details radiographic techniques for for accurate measurement; how to examine intrapelvic muscles for trigger points; a topographical guide that simplifies distinguishing the three gluteal muscles and the piriformis muscle when palpating trigger points; the muscular origin of pain in sciatic, gluteal and perineal distributions; and an examination of the complexity of adductor longus muscle which helps explain why its importance is easily overlooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wealth of information 23 Jan 2007
By Annie MacKenzie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I bought these books (upper and lower extremeties)to help me with trigger point work in the neck and shoulders, especially the scalenes and rotator cuff and to gain more knowledge with other major muscle groups. What I ended up with was a wealth of information, more than I could ever have dreamed of, these books are beautiful, wonderful color illustrations. Clear and easy to follow. There is also information on different stretches and how to educate and help the client. I will have these books for the rest of my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper than the ER! 10 May 2007
By xencindy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I bought the two volume set several years ago. It paid for itself the first time I used it and was able to get a severe headache under control at home, instead of going to the emergency room. Yes, even with a killer headache or back spasm, the book is easy to use, although it's got enough technical detail to make it an essential reference in any physician's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars best resource you could have 26 Aug 2009
By Heather - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I have had both texts for years and use them daily. The amount of observation that went into this research is phenomenal. The soleus msucle can refer to the JAW and I actually saw this once, which shows how observant these authors are. So well laid out, so thorough, much true-to-life practicality. I am buying a second set for my other office as I cannot bear to be without these fabulous books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 26 Jun 2009
By M. Pellegrini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Picks up where Volume 1 leaves off. A must for any health care practitioner who deals in pain syndromes, muscles, joints, etc. I can't recommend these volumes strongly enough.
