Comment: Spiral-bound. Underlining on page 7, but clean elsewhere. Upper right corner of title page is torn off in about a 1" by 2" area, as if someone removed their name. Author page has faint shadow of old penciled price in upper corner. Cover is clean with some general edgewear and shelf rubs. Spiral is intact and pages are tight in the spiral.

Format: Spiral-bound
The author brags that Ward, who termed the phrase "myofascial release" and helped popularized it among mainstream American Osteopaths, was one of the co-authors but he only contributes two paragraphs regarding myofascial release. The book describes different techniques for different problems but the reader should be warned: Myofascial release is both clinician and patient dependent, so the book should only be a guide of what you could possibly do. Furthermore, myofascial release involves three parts: compression, traction and twist. The author just describes stretching in her techniques. Because myofascial release is so patient and clinician dependent writing a book on this particular technique is very difficult. The author has not been able to meet the challenge.

This book is useful to help you apply the manual techniques of trigger point release. However,you will have to buy other books to have a complete guide about the practice of myofascial release. This book can help you.

This is one of a few books I purchased via Amazon on Myofascia Release therapy. This one is well written. It has many photos but I wish there were more - which would earn it all 5 stars. Highly recommended.
