These are other books that you need to look at: The Triggerpoint Therapy Workbook by Clair Davies, It's Not Carpal Tunnel Syndrome! by Jack Bellis and Suparna Demany, and possibly John Sarno's The Pain Prescription. All of these books contain solutions that are not well known in the medical field. Some of them might apply to your situation and some of them might not.
You can read about those books online. The most important thing I got from Dr. Pascarelli's book is that a brace can be dangerous, and can cause Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. His book is significant in the literature and I recommend it highly, but if I had read it first I would have felt doomed. Fortunately I read the other ones first...
The reason that I am giving it four stars, is that it does not cover enough treatment options for this condition. Fortunately, many physical therapists are familiar with massage therapy, stretching programs that could help relieve the symptoms. Overall, I think it is a good and informative read, but more research is necessary if someone wants to overcome this condition.
