Diagnostic atlas of myofascial pain syndromes
Diagnostic Atlas of Myofascial Pain Syndromes presents a diagnostic system in which myofascial trigger points, capable of referring pain to the same region of the body, are illustrated systematically. The book is divided into two parts: Section A provides an overview of trigger points, Section B shows the various reference patterns for these trigger points.
In recent years interest in myofascial pain syndromes has been increasing steadily. As it has been firmly established that musculoskeletal pain can be referred from one region to another, localizing trigger points and reference zones is now part of the diagnostic regime of a large number of clinicians.
Diagnostic Atlas of Myofascial Pain Syndromes has been compiled for physicians, physiotherapists, chiropractors and others who diagnose and treat pain disorders. The authors hope that this book will contribute to a greater understanding, and therefore better treatment, of myofascial pain syndromes.
