But beware that the author is somewhat overenthused about trigger points and their efficacy. Like many people who specialise in one area, he has come to believe that virtually any disease relates to trigger points and can be cured by treating them. He even starts talking about curing Dyslexia....
Not even all muscle pain is trigger point related. There are many interacting parameters like joint instability, arthritis, other soft-tissue injury, posture, learned responses etc etc. The book may help some but not others.
However, if you are interested in TPs then this IS the book to buy,.
All in all a handy book for treating trigger points, another good lesson here is that sometimes muscle trigger points can mimick more serious ailments, when the problem is really just in the muscle. Also recommend The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution if you suffer from plantar fasciitis pain.
