A major development in the safe and effective treatment of myofascial trigger points and myofascial pain, this book is a concise, comprehensive, and well-illustrated reference on dry needling. John Sharkey—an international authority on myofascial trigger points, myofascial pain, myofascial trigger point dry needling, and neuromuscular therapy as well as an accredited clinical anatomist—draws on his thirty years of experience in bodywork and movement therapy to provide accurate and essential criteria for the identification and subsequent treatment of myofascial trigger points through the exclusive use of a fine, filiform needle. The ideal accompaniment to course notes and the perfect tableside reference guide, this book describes the origin, etiology, and pathophysiology of the myofascial trigger point as well as indications and contraindications for myofascial trigger point dry needling. Instructive illustrations support the text, along with standards and guidelines that ensure safe, effective, and appropriate application. Physical therapists including osteopaths, chiropractors, neuromuscular therapists, soft tissue therapists, physiotherapists, and sports massage therapists will find this guide indispensible. Because Sharkey explains why so many people have unresolved chronic pain and provides clear explanations of how pain is propagated, the book is also an invaluable source of information for patients with chronic pain and their care providers.

Myofascial pain is a term that has been bantered around for many years. It is often unclear to people exactly what this means or how to fix it. Medical doctors, Physical therapists, Occupational therapists, Chiropractors and other practitioners are starting to acknowledge the importance of myofascial pain syndromes and collaborate to figure out how to treat it. Health care is becoming more and more competitive, with many fads cropping up on a monthly basis. Many of these have no scientific base, and yet in the technological age that we are living in, a good marketing strategy can convince you to try anything. I have heard hundreds of patients say that they have tried this and that, with little or no result other than emptying their wallet. This manual is an essential resource for anyone who is interesting in treating pain in their respective practices. For the dentist, who is struggling to help patients with TMJ issues, or the physical therapist who feels like massage isn't quite cutting it, or for the Chiropractor who cant understand why their adjustment isn't holding and the patient is still suffering. No one has time in their busy offices to lug out an enormous textbook and start paging through it for 15 minutes while their patient sits there waiting. This has been designed as a quick reference text for those practitioners that have a patient presenting with a myofascial pain syndrome and need to quickly recap what muscles can be causing it, where those trigger points are, how to treat it and what to do post treatment. The authors have more than 40 years of combined knowledge and have worked on thousands of patients to bring you the most valuable and concise information that you will need to be successful in dry needling in your practice.They have assumed that you have a strong and solid grasp of anatomy and physiology, so they have not done a full recap on the basics of these subjects. We begin with an overview on the relationship of muscle and trigger points. This is a useful review about the functionality, integrity and uses of muscles and the trigger points that form and reside in them. Next we cover the differences between Acupuncture and Dry Needling. A brief discussion that will help you answer the question you will encounter many times a day as to what the differences between these two treatment protocols are. The Palpation chapter is one of the most important chapters in this book, as most practitioners are deficient in this skill. There are fundamental tools in this chapter that will help you, quickly and effectively, master palpation. The Diagnosis and Treatment chapter outlines the fundamentals in evaluating and treating patients. Needling use and technique gives you the foundations on what and where to needle as well as the how. This chapter incorporates different needling techniques as well as post treatment protocols. It teaches you how to be safe and what contraindications are important to keep in mind when evaluating a patient for dry needling. In conclusion, this manual is for the practitioner who wishes to deepen their understanding of myofascial pain syndromes and wants to help their patients in a quick and incredibly effective manner. This book focuses on the how, not the why. It is a quick way of referencing pain patterns and finding out how to treat it immediately.

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.
