Summary : A clinical reference manual for the evaluation and treatment of muscle pain • Contains detailed illustrations of pain patterns and trigger-point locations • 15,000 copies sold in first hardcover edition 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.

Summary : This edition of the companion volumes Muscle Pain: Understanding the Mech- isms and Muscle Pain: Diagnosis and Treatment is essential reading for those interested in clinical approaches to acute and chronic pain conditions involving muscle tissues and in the mechanisms underlying these conditions. The volumes cover a very important topic in pain medicine, since muscle pain is very common and can often be dif?cult to diagnose and treat effectively. Furthermore, chronic pain involving muscle and other components of the musculoskeletal system increases with age, such that it is a common complaint of those of us who are middle-aged or older. Indeed, as changing population demographics in “west- nized” countries result in higher proportions of the population living longer and being middle-aged and elderly, chronic muscle pain will likely become even more of a health problem. In the case of acute muscle pain, this can often be very intense, and in the short term can limit or modify the use of components of the musculoskeletal system associated with the sensitive muscle. Chronic muscle pain can also be intense, as well as unpleasant and disabling, and it is in many cases the over-riding symptom of most musculoskeletal disorders that are associated with long-term deleterious changes in musculoskeletal function.

Summary : This book is the updated English version (not a mere translation) of a textbook which appeared successively in Czech,in German, in Bulgarian, in Dutch and in Polish. This English version is shorter, more concise and includes the latest techniques. The role of manipulation is limited to passive mobility and an important part of this book deals with active mobility. The author emphasizes that this is a textbook and not a manual of techniques: the latter deals with individual techniques, while his purpose is to show that it can be disastrous to confine one's interest in this manner and to remain unaware of both the broader context of treatment and of the possible alternatives. There are chapters on functional anatomy, the diagnosis and treatment of disturbed locomotor system function, including indications of appropriate treatment and the place of manipulation, and finally a long chapter on the clinical aspects of impaired function of the locomotor system. The book begins by discussing the major role played by impaired function in the vast majority of patients suffering from pain arising in the locomotor system. This type of pain is altogether the most frequent from which patients suffer, and the first two chapters of this book are mainly concerned with the origin of this pain. It is traditionally associated with rheumatism, but unfortunately rheumatologists are insufficiently aware of locomotor function and leave this field largely to neurologists and orthopaedic surgeons. The author believes that the speciality which is principally concerned with impaired function and its restoration to normal is rehabiliation medicine, a term which includes physical therapy, and it is in this framework that the future of manipulation lies. This will continue to be the case until, one day, a new speciality is established, one which deals with the whole of the locomotor system and in particular with its function. Ideally, it should be called "Musculo-skeletal Medicine".

Summary : Muscle Pain Syndromes and Fibromyalgia: Pressure Algometry for Quantification of Diagnosis and Treatment Outcome represents a new approach by quantifying the diagnosis and outcome assessment of musculoskeletal pain by pressure algometry. Such quantitative studies are useful in daily practice of pain management as well as in research and medicolegal documentation. The basic question of whether or not pressure sensitivity has reached an abnormal level can be answered quantitatively. Findings of different clinicians can be compared in numbers. The efficacy of different therapeutic procedures can be assessed numerically immediately after injections or physical therapy. Long-term effects of pain medications or physical modalities can be documented. The measurements take a few minutes and are simple and reliable. Muscle Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia is clinically oriented and presents the experience of internationally recognized authorities. This means you'll learn: the employment of pressure algometry in quantitative evaluation of pain alleviation by medications and physical modalities documentation of long-term follow up results in plantar fasciitis, failed back surgery and degenerative hip disorders treated by a new injection technique the quantified diagnosis of tender spots, active and latent trigger points and fibromyalgia the specific measurement sites, methods and goals for the evaluation of different treatments you will see how renowned clinicians in Brazil, Italy, Finland, The United States, and Taiwan employ algometry for quantitative diagnosis and evaluation of treatment results. Immediate effects of treatment as well as long-term results were successfully monitored by algometry the importance of distinguishing sensitization in the skin, subcutaneous, and deep tissues for differential diagnosis of muscle pain syndromes sensitivity over active and latent trigger points and referred pain zones Muscle Pain Syndromes and Fibromyalgia is a multidisciplinary comprehensive treatise reviewing the present status of clinical and research application of pressure algometry. This inexpensive method by its simplicity is suitable for employment in the daily practice of pain management. PA represents significant progress in approaching the important but difficult problem of how to quantify a diagnosis that is based upon such a subjective category as pain. Myofascial pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, muscle spasm and inflammation in general can be assessed quantitatively.
