Informed Touch: A Clinician's Guide to Evaluation and Treatment of Myofascial Disorders by Finando
The authors examine a wide range of myofascial pain patterns and their treatments, presenting evaluation and palpation techniques for trigger points in the most clinically significant musculature of the body.
Introductory chapters discuss the concept of qi and its relationship to myofascial pain, information on trigger point location and activation, and palpatory skill-building techniques.
Detailed information on each muscle, including pain-pattern and trigger point illustrations and specific palpation instructions, allows clinicians to locate individual points of pain and compensation quickly and accurately.
A visual index makes it easy to identify the muscles that may be involved in the patient's complaint.
Therapist Recommends: A deceptively simple blending of anatomy, myofascial trigger point theory, and TCM, gives you the tools to work smarter, not harder.
