Tenderness in response to palpation can occur within the pain pattern of a trigger point even if pain is not experienced in the point’s referral zone. This tenderness will dissipate after the trigger point is reduced. Pain or tenderness will generally increase with use of the muscle, stretching of the muscle, direct pressure to the trigger point, shortening of the muscle for an extended period of time, sustained repetitive contraction of the muscle, cold or damp weather, viral infections, and stress.

A clinical reference manual for the evaluation and treatment of muscle pain • Contains detailed illustrations of pain patterns and trigger-point locations Myofascial pain syndromes are among the fastest growing problems that physicians, osteopaths, acupuncturists, and physical, occupational, and massage therapists encounter in their patients. In Trigger Point Therapy for Myofascial Pain Donna and Steven Finando have organized vast amounts of information on treating myofascial pain into an accessible "user's manual" for healthcare practitioners. They examine a wide range of pain patterns and present evaluation and palpation techniques for reducing trigger points--and thereby alleviating pain--in the most clinically significant musculature of the body. This comprehensive yet easy-to-use reference guide to treatment of muscle pain begins with chapters on the concept of Qi and its relationship to myology, specific trigger point location and activation, and palpatory skill-building techniques. Subsequent sections provide detailed information on each muscle to teach clinicians to locate quickly and accurately individual points of pain and compensation. A visual index allows easy identification of the muscles that may be involved. Trigger Point Therapy for Myofascial Pain provides necessary and invaluable information for sufferers and any professional involved with myofascial disorders.

I actually love this book. I needed it for a massage therapy class and found it extremely helpful. BUT - I can only give it two stars because there is a HUGE error in the making of my book. There is a large section of print that is missing (the entire shoulder girdle chapter, as well as most of the upper limbs chapter...) which is kind of a big deal. The printer instead put in a section twice. My book jumps from page 54-87, continues to page 118, and then goes back to page 87, and continues in order from there. Im very disappointed that I can not return this book to amazon, because since I needed for a class, I missed my 30 day return deadline. :( I am going to try contacting the printer because I would love to keep this book in my collection without having to purchase it again...

I bought this a long time ago. It didn't mean much to me. Now that I've been doing reflexology for over 20 years as an accompaniment to family health practices, this makes a whole lot of sense. A good book to keep in your health library if you have a need to know where the muscles are located and how to find referral areas to aches and pains.

This book is super full of information and its broken the body into seperate sections that makes it easy to look up and read.

I like the book but there are also bits in the introduction that I feel could have been left out.

As a massage therapy student, I really like this book. It has been very helpful in learning the muscles ,trigger points and their pain patterns. There really isn't much "practical" knowledge (as in HOW to release trigger points) but it is very informative otherwise. I don't know much about the Chinese Traditional Medicine that they discuss through the book and that part wasn't overly helpful for me. I think it's a great in depth help for learning muscles.

Have a patient with a troublesome pain issue? One that you just can't put your finger on? Well the education in Trigger Point Therapy is the book for you! I purchased the paperback version with the certification test and it is the clearest presentation of the trigger point pain issue I have ever used. I purchased the kindle version so I would have it with me, in case I needed the info at my fingertips during a session or wanted to show patients the pain area diagrams[home health or traveling situations]. The book not only increased my skills, but increased my credibility with patients and clients as I can show them what the issues are, work on them and assign their case specific homework [stretches & exercises]. I recommend it to massage therapists, physical therapists [and their assistants], occupational therapists [and their assistants]. There is an easy to follow self help version that the layman can get and use for themselves.

Got this as a gift for a massage therapist friend. She absolutely loves it and references to it all the time. Invaluable addition to her practice.
This is good, basic information. Informative and relatively comprehensive- nothing astounding, but nothing bad to report either.
