“A comprehensive yet concise reference book, ideal for students embarking on clinical practice, physical therapists wanting to understand more about pain management, or any individual wishing to treat their own pain“
It’s been a great couple of weeks here at Lotus Publishing, as we are celebrating the milestone of having sold half a million books in the UK. From a small acorn of an idea that was forged many years ago with our first book, Mary Sanderson’s ‘Soft Tissue Release’, to the 65 books – and counting! – that we have today. Thank you to all those who have supported and enjoyed our books.
Our gift to you: a FREE sample chapter from ‘The Concise Book of Trigger Points’
Do you understand how trigger points in the SCM can contribute to specific headache patterns? How the scalenes can refer pain down the arm, the tibialis anterior muscle can cause radiating pain patterns in to the big toe, or how releasing trigger points in the QL muscle can quickly and directly help to relieve hip pain?
Trigger point therapy is a powerful tool in the treatment of acute and chronic pain and this lively book neatly arranges all the information you need: key anatomical information, illustrated trigger point referral patterns for 65 individual muscles, recommended treatment protocols and insights into the physiological mechanism and evidence for trigger point therapy. One book – it’s all in there! The good news is it’s currently reduced from £18.99 down to £14.93 on Amazon – that’s a lot cheaper than Travell and Simons! However, we would like to give you a full colour chapter from the book for FREE.
Chapter 11: Muscles of the Hip and Thigh
This chapter describes regional trigger points commonly involved in hip, thigh and knee pain. 22 pages and an overview of 24 muscles – comprehensive, quick-reference, and designed to help you illustrate the mechanism of trigger points to your patients. We hope you find it useful!
