As a massage therapist and a sufferer of Chronic Fibromyalgia pain this book has done for me what thousands of dollars and dozens of doctors could not seem to do. The day I met Claire and April was the day I began to learn to use maintenance to control my pain. Most people don't know that a trigger point can cause a sore throat or irregular menses. I have treated people who have had the same issues for over a decade many told they have pinched nerves and other misdiagnosis. I teach my clients to treat themselves and this book has changed their lives as well as mine. It is always my first line of treatment in my practice. John Kennedy said only Janet Travell could stop his pain, she was the foremost expert on trigger point and wrote the physician's guide to trigger point. She was also the only woman Whitehouse Phys. Sadley most doctors don't have a clue how to use it or what it even entails.

Good self-help tool

I consider this book to be a useful self-help tool for treating trigger points, or irritable spots in the muscle. It has many, many pictures which help guide the reader to common places in the muscles where these things are at. From there, you can use a ball, massage them with your fingers, or even use this tool called a Thera-Cane to get to those hard to reach places.

All in all a handy book for treating trigger points, another good lesson here is that sometimes muscle trigger points can mimick more serious ailments, when the problem is really just in the muscle. Also recommend "The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution" if you suffer from plantar fasciitis pain.

Trigger point Therapy Workbook authored by Clair Davis, is an excellent companion to any Professional or any lay person who is interested in trigger point therapy. Readabity of this book is heavily supported by number of clear illustrations. Trigger Point Guides provided at the begining of each section are very useful in planing of therapy sessions. This work will surely mark a new area of drug free treatment for common pain patterns encountered in daily practice.
