New science confirms that trigger-point massage is one of the most effective ways to relieve pain. Trigger Points gives you 40 simple, step-by-step exercises you can safely use at home to target pain - from long-term, debilitating backache or repetitive strain injury to migraines or acute, post-injury pain. Author and leading therapist Amanda Oswald specialises in working with chronic pain conditions. In this book, she explains how trigger points -- small, tender knots of connective tissue -- can cause symptoms, either around the trigger point itself or referred to elsewhere in the body. Pressure and massage can release these knots and bring immediate, long-lasting relief. Identify your pain patterns, locate the trigger points responsible using detailed body maps, then treat the trigger points accurately and safely. Each exercise shows you how to position your body, different ways to apply pressure, how long to sustain it, and how often to repeat the process.
