A guide to the treatment of pain from common sports injuries and other physical activities

· Contains at-home techniques to promote healing and self-awareness of the body’s musculature

· Explains how to relieve pain using manual massage in conjunction with small physio balls

· Includes an illustrated treatment reference section organized by region of the body

The vast majority of physical injuries incurred by active people begin with muscular injuries that are not addressed by the conventional medical approach to orthopedic care. Injuries of this type are generally too minor to warrant splinting, casting, or medication and often do not prevent participation in physical activities. They do, however, produce noticeable discomfort and, over time, frequently lead to more severe injuries.

In Trigger Point Self-Care Manual Donna Finando presents methods for the healing and prevention of musculature injuries. She identifies the causes of and remedies for areas of muscular tightness and restriction and details many self-care techniques, including precise self-massage, stretching, and the use of wet heat and/or ice. In the fully illustrated reference section, organized by body part, she identifies the pain associated with trigger points in each muscle of the body and provides instructions for palpating, treating, and stretching the muscle in order to release it.

HEALTH / BODYWORK

The vast majority of physical injuries incurred by active people begin with muscular injuries that are not addressed by the conventional medical approach to orthopedic care. Injuries of this type, while often painful, are generally too minor to warrant splinting, casting, or medication and often do not prevent participation in physical activities. They do, however, produce noticeable discomfort and, over time, frequently lead to more severe injuries.

In Trigger Point Self-Care Manual Donna Finando presents methods for the healing and prevention of muscular injuries. She identifies the causes of and remedies for areas of muscular tightness and restriction and details many self-care techniques, including precise self-massage, stretching, and the use of wet heat and/or ice. In the fully illustrated reference section, organized by region of the body, she describes the pain associated with trigger points in each muscle of that region, identifies the actions and positions that cause those trigger points to develop, and provides instructions for massaging, treating, and stretching the muscle in order to release it.

DONNA FINANDO, L.Ac., L.M.T., is a practitioner of acupuncture and massage, specializing in myofascial meridian therapy and myofascial release techniques. She studied with Janet Travell, M.D., a pioneer in the field of pain management, and has taught throughout the United States for more than twenty years. She lives on Long Island, New York, where she has been in continual practice since 1976. She is also the coauthor of Trigger Point Therapy for Myofascial Pain.
