Format: Hardcover
Literally millions of patients in pain could be helped if they and their health care professionals understood myofascial trigger points and referred pain, the concepts so thoroughly documented in the "Trigger Point Manual" by Travell and Simons. For example, over 80 percent of patients with TMJ disorder (TMD) experience myofascial pain. With a knowledgeable provider diagnosing, plus utilizing the patient's own self-help abilities for a home- care program, billions of dollars could be saved in unnecessary medications and procedures. Travell and Simons have given health care professionals a path to walk. This book should be required reading in all institutions of learning. -- This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I think this is by far the best book I have read on the matter of myofascial pain. This book is well written and can be understood easily. The book contain numerous pictures which aids the understanding. What I like the most about this book is that apart that it teaches how to eliminate the trigger points, its also teaches the reader how to prevent it by specific exercises and habitual changes. Overall, I would like to recommend this book to the readers who seek to understand myofascial pain better.

Format: Hardcover
The Travell texts carry an unfathomable amount of information and not just for the fascinating pain patterns. (Many people just look the diagram for the pain pattern) It describes the irritating activities which the patient should review with you to see if they are doing any of these things or similar actions. It is rare to see a muscle book talk about nerve entrapments from a muscle or fascial band, and rare to have a book tell you where ELSE to look for an irritant, such as another muscle to treat FIRST. The quick reference guide is so clever, and the most common problematic muscles are bolded. Nutrition is discussed, allergies and the effect of histamines on muscles, etc etc. This has got to be one of the most thorough books of all time. When I opened a second office, this was one set of books I absolutely needed to duplicate.

In depth, the best illustrations of muscles I have ever seen. Includes tests to determine trigger point presence. Comprehensive diagnostic differentials. So expensive but I consider them an investment. Simply the best. Too bad Dr. Travell was so stuck on spray and inject- not necessary.

This is a must have for anyone doing more than just Swedish massage. It is full of pertinent information for deep tissue, cupping, myofascial work, etc.

I have been very excited to have discovered an in depth textbook like this one, that teaches those professionals interested in an alternative treatment strategy for helping clients to find relief for their pain. Often this is chronic, daily pain that many individuals suffer from. I have already used some of Dr. Janet Travell's manual trigger point therapy with success.
