- We can order this
Repetitive strain injuries to the arm, wrist, and hand areas affect approximately 27 million people each year. Carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, Dupeytren's contracture, and other conditions can be caused by reduced blood flow to certain portions of arm muscles that results in knots in the tissue. These trigger points can cause pain at the site of the reduced blood flow or refer pain to other areas of the body.
Trigger Point Therapy for Repetitive Strain Injury is a complete manual to finding and treating these trigger points at home for reduced pain and increased wrist, arm, and hand mobility. By simply applying pressure and regularly practicing simple stretches and exercises, readers can eliminate trigger points and greatly reduce their repetitive strain injury symptoms.

"DeLaune has written a wonderful and comprehensive self-care book for upper limb and repetitive strain injuries. With easy-to-use self-diagnostic tools, treatment options, and helpful information on the prevention of musculoskeletal pain, this valuable resource is a must for everyone's medicine cabinet."
--Wendy Larson, MSPT, physical therapist and owner of Centre Point Physical Therapy in Portland, OR
"DeLaune adds another important pillar to the understanding of how 'just a muscle problem' can cause the pain and dysfunction we are taught to deal with or medicate. In this book, a reader/pain patient will experience a comprehensive approach to the self-treatment of myofascial pain caused by trigger points. This means that it addresses all the other considerations, including the ones surrounding the lives of chronic pain patients, which are most commonly overlooked, and offers simple-to-perform self-treatment approaches and techniques."
--Jeffrey A. Lutz LMT, CMTPT, president of the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists (NAMTPT)
