Trigger Point Therapy for Headaches & Migraines: Your Self-Treatment Workbook for Pain Relief Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

I have such a bad headache For many of us, this is an oft repeated cry of anguish. Statistics about headaches and migraines are downright astonishing: One in six people have frequent headaches, and of those, one in ten suffers from migraines. You are not alone. Headaches and migraines result in more than 10 million doctor visits each year. If you struggle frequently with headache pain, this book offers a welcome solution. Trigger point therapy is an effective self-care approach you can use to get relief from headache pain.

Trigger points form in a portion of the muscle cell where blood flow is reduced and metabolic wastes are not being exchanged for oxygen and nutrients. When enough trigger points are located together, they can form palpable knots in the tissue. Trigger points can cause pain, either in the area of the trigger point, or by referral to other areas of the body. Trigger points can be treated by applying pressure to affected areas, often providing instant relief. This book explains trigger point physiology and then offers a complete program for self-care that includes detailed illustrations of all pressure and stretching techniques. In addition, it provides an in-depth look at the factors that cause and perpetuate trigger points, such as body mechanics, injuries, diet and nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and emotional factors, and provides solutions to address each perpetuating factor.

Headaches are among the most common ailments, and any resource to help sufferers is a welcome addition. With this book, Ms. Delaune gives you a tool you can use to help yourself. The photos are excellent, and the text is very easy for anyone to understand.

-Honora Lee Wolfe, certified acupuncturist and author of Managing Menopause Naturally with Chinese Medicine and Points for Profit

Valerie DeLaune's Trigger Point Therapy for Headaches and Migraines delivers highly effective, safe, and easy-to-learn self-care techniques that will help to engage the patient as an active partner in easing pain and improving body function. I can therefore confidently recommend this book to anyone who suffers from stubborn head, neck, shoulder, or back pain and dysfunction.

-Bernard L. Gladieux, Jr., president of The Pressure Positive Company

Book News Annotation:

Trigger points form a portion of the muscle cell where blood flow is reduced. DeLaune, a licensed acupuncturist and certified neuromuscular therapist, explains how trigger points contribute to headache pain, and shows how to treat trigger points by applying pressure. Part I offers background on trigger points, describes various types of headaches and their causes, and links groups of symptoms to specific trigger points. Part II looks at factors that cause and activate trigger points, such as chronic and acute illness, poor posture, diet, hormonal imbalance, and emotional factors. Part III provides step-by-step instructions, illustrated with b&w photos, for locating the muscles that potentially contain trigger points, applying pressure to them, and stretching the muscles. An appendix offers special notes on fibromyalgia. The book is geared toward general readers, but also offers an appendix of advice for therapists teaching self-help techniques.

Synopsis:

I have such a headache For many of us, this cry is something of a mantra. Statistics about headaches and migraines are so far-reaching, the experiences of these problems so ubiquitous, that listing specifics about them can seem incredible: 26 million Americans suffer regular migraines, and another 45 million experience chronic headache pain. In 2001 alone, more than 10 million doctor visits were occasioned by headaches. This book is welcome relief to the millions who struggle daily with headache pain. It develops trigger point therapy into an effective self-care approach to headache pain relief. Trigger points are areas of cells in a muscle that are locked in a dysfunctional cycle. Blood flow to these areas is reduced, and metabolic wastes are not being exchanged for oxygen and nutrients. When enough trigger points are located together, they form palpable knots in the tissue. Trigger points can cause pain, either directly or by referral to other areas of the body. Clearing trigger points can be easily done with gentle, sweeping massage and pressure applied to affected areas. Relief can be instant. This book explains trigger point theory and then offers a complete program for self care that includes clear illustrations of all techniques.
