This really is the best book on the subject of trigger point therapy. Clear, concise diagrams of pain referral patterns makes locating the culprit muscle and dealing with the problem so much easier. The authour also details other possible causes of pain and suggests consideration of alternative therapy avenues to try. This is simply a 'must have' book for any serious remedial or sports massage therapist.

Having received Trigger point therapy and found it extremely useful. As a massage Therapist myself I wanted to learn more. I was not disappointed. What a great visual and informative book. It did not baffle me with too much anatomical information but told me just enough. Anyone without my training could pick up this book and learn a lot from it.

The Concise Book of Trigger Points has been superbly updated by the author. The first 3 chapters have been reworked to create a much more coherent introduction to trigger points, and there is a new chapter on research and theories. A great self-help section concludes the book - really pleased with this purchase, and I can fully recommend it as an excellent reference book on this fascinating subject.

Format: Paperback
Just by way of warning to those who are looking to 'help themselves' with muscle problems rather than a critique of the book. This book is not written for lay people so unless you have a lot of time to learn more about anatomy and the latin names of all the muscles, don't buy this book. The use of 'concise' in the title is relative and must refer more to its technical content; it is about A4 size ;-).
Good clear pictures however and helpful suggestions for stretches/exercises that may help - though as a lay person trying to help myself, I would have liked more detail on these (!).

Lovely book, beautifully illustrated but more for those with some previous anatomic or chiropratic style training unless as a beginner you are very keen and have pleanty of time on your hands.

By K. Platt TOP 100 REVIEWER on 2 Dec. 2014
Format: Paperback
When a book reaches its 3rd edition and has many good reviews as this one does, you know it is good. First published ten years ago, it has been translated into over 20 languages and is useful to the professional and as a self-help manual. It is an excellent book for therapists as well as people who cannot afford therapy or whose NHS doctor ignores their symptoms. So many in the UK suffer in pain with no or little medical help. It is great for sufferers of fibromyalgia.

This book contains excellent full-colour illustrations to treat chronic pain through trigger points. The first six chapters look at the physiology of trigger points and methods of treatment, the remaining chapters look at muscle groups. You'll find detailed anatomical information, pain patterns and key trigger points, self-help and more.

For example if you are having problems with calf muscles or cramps, you can see the indications, causes, differential diagnosis, connections and techniques as well as a self-help programme. All muscle groups in the body are dealt with in the same way. Highly recommended.

As a massage therapist myself who has had problems with my back and neck due to surgery I decided to buy this book to enhance my own knowledge of trigger point therapy. I am glad I did as not only has it helped me it will also help others who come to me suffering from the pain caused by trigger points. I am absolutely delighted with this most helpful book and the illustrations are superb. I think this is a great book for all massage and bodywork therapists who want to enhance their treatments and really help their clients. 10 out of 10 to the author
