Full-colour illustrations and charts help practitioners, students, and patients identify trigger points and address referred pain patterns with ease.

The first chapter introduces relevant information on fascia and myofascial meridians and provides an overview of trigger point symptoms, classification, and formation.

  • Forearm and hand
  • Hip and thigh
  • Leg and foot

Written in clear, accessible language, this essential guide offers a wealth of knowledge to the lay reader, the student, or the practitioner.
