This book is about empowerment for chronic pain patients and care providers alike. Every chronic pain condition has a treatable myofascial trigger point component, including fibromyalgia. Many of the localized symptoms now considered as fibromyalgia are actually due to trigger points. The central sensitization of fibromyalgia amplifies symptoms that trigger points cause, and this book teaches care providers and patients how to identify and treat those causes. Chronic myofascial pain due to trigger points can be body-wide, and can cause or maintain fibromyalgia central sensitization. Trigger points can cause and/or maintain or contribute to many types of pain and dysfunction, including numbness and tingling, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, osteoarthritis, cognitive dysfunctions and disorientation, impotence, incontinence, loss of voice, pelvic pain, muscle weakness, menstrual pain, TMJ dysfunction, shortness of breath, and many symptoms attributed to old age or "atypical" or psychological sources. Trigger point therapy has been around for decades, but only recently have trigger points been imaged at the Mayo Clinic and National Institutes of Health. Their ubiquity and importance is only now being recognized. Devin Starlanyl is a medically trained chronic myofascial pain and fibromyalgia researcher and educator, as well as a patient with both of these conditions. She has provided chronic pain education and support to thousands of patients and care providers around the world for decades. John Sharkey is a physiologist with more than twenty-seven years of anatomy experience, and the director of a myofascial pain facility. Together they have written a comprehensive reference to trigger point treatment to help patients with fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, and many other conditions. This guide will be useful for all types of doctors, nurses, therapists, bodyworkers, and lay people, facilitating communication between care providers and patients and empowering patients who now struggle with all kinds of misunderstood and unexplained symptoms. Part 1 explains what trigger points are and how they generate symptoms, refer pain and other symptoms to other parts of the body, and create a downward spiral of dysfunction. The authors look at the interconnection between fibromyalgia and myofascial trigger points and their possible causes and symptoms; identify stressors that perpetuate trigger points such as poor posture, poor breathing habits, nutritional inadequacies, lack of sleep, and environmental and psychological factors; and provide a list of over one hundred pain symptoms and their most common corresponding trigger point sources. Part 2 describes the sites of trigger points and their referral patterns within each region of the body, and provides pain relief solutions for fibromyalgia and trigger point patients and others with debilitating symptoms. Pain treatment plans include both self-help remedies for the patient—stretching or postural exercises, self-massage techniques and prevention strategies—as well as diagnostic and treatment hints for care providers. Part 3 offers guidance for both patients and care providers in history taking, examination, and palpation skills, as well as treatment options. It offers a vision for the future that includes early assessment, adequate medical training, prevention of fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis, changes to chronic pain management and possible solutions to the health care crisis, and a healthier version of our middle age and golden years, asserting that patients have a vital role to play in the management of their own health.

Demystifying time-tested touch therapy techniques such as Acupressure, Reflexology, Cranial Sacral Therapy, among others, Ebbin shares her invaluable insight and provides clear, step-by-step remedies, accompanied by beautiful full-color photos, to relieve a range of physical and emotional stressors, from back pain and headache to anxiety. Her solutions are quick, taking only two-to-three minutes each, and easy, requiring only three steps, and most of the remedies can be done anytime, anywhere, even on the go. In addition, Ebbin shows how touch therapy offers powerful strategies to improve intimacy in relationships, bond with your children, and improve communication through touch.

Andrea has created a line of high quality salicylate free products that not only take the guesswork out of shopping but also make it enjoyable! Kudos to Andrea for not only working her own program and regaining good health with guaifenesin but paying it forward and helping thousands get started on the protocol.

Most muscular aches and pains are caused or affected by untreated “trigger points,” localized tender spots in muscles. Understanding and treating these points can lead to rapid and lasting pain relief. Trigger point therapy is a powerful tool in the management of both acute and chronic pain, including such common problems as headaches, TMJ syndrome, and back pain. The Concise Book of Trigger Points has set the gold standard for providing a clear understanding of the treatment of trigger points. Designed for the student and practitioner of massage/bodywork, physical therapy, physiotherapy, osteopathy, sports therapy, and any other health-related field, it functions both as an entry-level textbook and an authoritative reference for even the most experienced therapist. This updated third edition includes new self-help and practitioner treatment guidelines for each muscle discussed, covering cutting-edge trigger point theory and practice. The opening chapters describe the basics of trigger points and include detailed therapeutic protocols. Chapters seven through twelve are organized by muscle groups, with detailed color illustrations of each major skeletal muscle. In addition, respected osteopath Simeon Niel-Asher discusses the physiological implications of the trigger points in each muscle—and techniques for treatment—and addresses the most common pain complaints, including headache, neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, and TMJ syndrome. This is a must-have manual for students, professional hands-on therapists, and those who wish to gain a greater knowledge of trigger point therapy. “This book wonderfully describes the syndromes of myofascial pain that affect the skeletal muscles. The text is clear, with detailed information about the presentation of syndromes in each body region, and the illustrations show the referred pain patterns clearly. Individuals suffering from myofascial pain will find it useful in understanding and managing their symptoms.” --Dr. Bob Gerwin, MD, FAAN Medical Director and President, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland “Simeon Niel-Asher has improved on an already wonderfully descriptive book on myofacial pain, trigger points, and syndromes. The text is clear, the diagrams excellent and the overall result is an excellent resource.” --Dr. Simon Vulfsons, MD, Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Pain Management Director, the Institute for Pain Medicine, Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel “This book is a must-have for manual therapists serious about their craft, as well as for serious self-treaters who want to take their level of understanding and treatment independence to a higher level. The book is extremely well organized, well written, and concise. The illustrations are beautiful and accurate.” --Jonathan Reynolds, Director, TOLA systems.

Stop Muscle & Joint Pain Naturally with Easy to use Trigger Point Therapy (Myofascial Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Foam Rolling, Tennis Ball Massage) Do you suffer with aches and pains? Do you have reoccurring injuries? Do you suffer with chronic pain? Have you tried every possible cure only to find that the ache is still there? Are you sick and tired of aches which move from one body part to another? Do you feel battered and beaten after your night's sleep? Well you don't have to feel like this anymore thanks to the wonders of myofascial message, whereby you can treat yourself naturally either with your hands, a massage ball or tennis ball or via a foam roller! There are a great many trigger points, which can be used quite successfully to treat a variety of conditions. In this short practical guide, we are going to focus upon the top ten essential trigger points, trigger points which can be used in everyday life by the majority of people. Some of the deeper trigger points, seen deep inside the thigh and pelvis, can be a little hard to reach but for most people, with some effort, they should be either able to treat themselves or if necessary a friend or family member should be able to treat them effectively, through manipulation of the relevant trigger points. Can we Really Treat Ourselves? Trigger points are atypically deployed by physical therapists, osteopaths, naturopaths and masseurs. So considering all of these people are highly qualified, and of course they are standing over the patient, where they can apply considerable force, is there any point in trying to treat ourselves? Well, obviously we cannot expect the same result, while working on ourselves, than that which we might receive if we go to a professional therapist. However, just because the result will be less effective, does not mean that we cannot give it a go. Also, treating oneself, in no way diminishes the role of the therapist. Rather, it makes the role of the therapist more meaningful, because a patient, who takes an active interest in their treatment and makes an effort to assist the healing process, while in the comfort of their own home, is actually making the healing effort more effective and is more likely to return to a therapist for further assistance. So if you are sick of having persistent aches and pains and want to do something proactive about ti, then read this book today!

My undergraduate training has been in the field of Physical Therapy, but like many of you I have been participating in the ‘school of life’ much longer! As you incorporate the basic techniques included in this book into whatever your current healing practice is, hopefully you too will experience the reward and joy of watching people change and heal themselves as I have. Following are the basic principles that have emerged for me through the years: Our bodies are all one piece, and what affects any part of it affects the whole. All layers of the body must be released to allow for full release of the whole body. As parts of the body release and physical mobility changes, mental and emotional agility increases To maintain these changes, the central nervous system has to realize the new possibilities for movement and incorporate them into natural motor patterns. To maintain the physical changes and new natural motor patterns, the energetic body must change to reflect the physical changes. As parts of the body release, energy releases and flows more freely throughout the entire body. As energy releases, memories emerge for integration into consciousness and subsequent healing of past traumas. As physical and energetic changes occur, belief systems shift. As individual’s belief systems shift, societal paradigms shift. This is a wholistic model that I am calling MultiDimensional Healing...Come join me on this exciting journey of discovering your unlimited potential for facilitating healing for yourself, your clients, your community, the world!
