New Harbinger Trigger Point Therapy for Low Back Pain: A Self-Treatment Workbook by Sharon Sauer and Mary Biancalana
Learn the secrets to lasting pain relief: finding and deactivating trigger points, the underlying cause of most low back pain. Trigger points are sensitive tight spots in taut bands of muscle tissue. Treating trigger points that refer pain to the low back
However, this book opens up new horizons both for the public and for bodywork practitioners. "Trigger Point Therapy for Low Back Pain" clearly demonstrates Sharon's mastery in this complex healing art and in the art of teaching it. It sets forth the trigger point protocols in such a clear fashion that I have been inspired to renew and deepen my studies in this field.
Thanks, Sharon and Mary for giving us the gift of your amazing work. Myofascial trigger point therapy brings us holistic awareness and powerful tools to take care of our amazingly complex and resilient bodies. In an age when medicine is all but dehumanized (and touch-free), physical therapy is often routinized and restricted to defined muscle groups and consumers prefer symptomatic treatment with pills rather than addressing our real health and wellness issues, this book brings continuity and hope that the breakthroughs of Travell and Simons will not be lost on our high-tech, low-touch and short-sighted culture.
