Acupuncture Trigger Points and Musculoskeletal Pain

Acupuncture Trigger Points and Musculoskeletal Pain

ISBN 9780443066443
Edition 2005
Publication Date
Publisher Churchill Livingstone
The third edition of this highly successful book describes how musculoskeletal pain can be simply and effectively treated by acupuncture. It gives a comprehensive account of current knowledge concerning two very commonly occurring musculoskeletal pain disorders - the myofascial trigger point pain syndrome and the fibromyalgia syndrome. Myofascial trigger point pain syndrome is an all too common complaint. It often goes unrecognised or alternatively is passed off as trivial and ineffectively treated. This third edition gives a wide ranging review of current knowledge concerning it. The author, after having given a detailed account of the neurophysiology of pain in general, discusses at length the pathophysiology of myofascial trigger point nociceptive pain and the rationale for alleviating it, by means of the acupuncture technique of superficially applied dry needle - evoked nerve stimulation at trigger point sites.
