Das Buch gibt einen Überblick über die möglichen Ursachen von Kopfschmerzen und Migräne und bietet zahlreiche Tipps zur Selbsthilfe. Es wird erläutert, was Triggerpunkte sind: in der Regel oft nur erbsengroße verkrampfte Zonen der Muskulatur, vergleichbar einem kleinen Dauerkrampf. Der Leser erfährt, wie man Triggerpunkte behandeln kann und welche Rolle sie bei Kopfschmerzen und Migräne spielen. Auch auf die Gründe, warum und wie Triggerpunkte entstehen, wird eingegangen. Das können z.B. ungünstige Körperhaltungen sein, aber auch unvorteilhaft konstruierte Möbel, ernährungsbedingte Faktoren, Stress, Schlafstörungen sowie akute oder chronische Krankheiten.

Release Date: 2008
Genre: Health & Fitness

I have such a bad headache! For many of us, this is an oft repeated cry of anguish. Statistics about headaches and migraines are downright astonishing: One in six people have frequent headaches, and of those, one in ten suffers from migraines. You are not alone. Headaches and migraines result in more than 10 million doctor visits each year. If you struggle frequently with headache pain, this book offers a welcome solution. Trigger point therapy is an effective self-care approach you can use to get relief from headache pain. Trigger points form in a portion of the muscle cell where blood flow is reduced and metabolic wastes are not being exchanged for oxygen and nutrients. When enough trigger points are located together, they can form palpable knots in the tissue. Trigger points can cause pain, either in the area of the trigger point, or by referral to other areas of the body. Trigger points can be treated by applying pressure to affected areas, often providing instant relief. This book explains trigger point physiology and then offers a complete program for self-care that includes detailed illustrations of all pressure and stretching techniques. In addition, it provides an in-depth look at the factors that cause and perpetuate trigger points, such as body mechanics, injuries, diet and nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and emotional factors, and provides solutions to address each perpetuating factor.

Frozen Shoulder Workbook

Author: Clair Davies
Publisher: New Harbinger Publications
ISBN: 9781572244474
Release Date: 2006-01-01
Genre: Health & Fitness

Author Clair Davies' own case of frozen shoulder led him to undertake an extensive study of trigger points and referred pain that eventually resulted in his runaway best-seller, "The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook". Now, this renowned bodywork expert and educator revisits the subject of frozen shoulder, offering the most detailed and comprehensive manual yet available about this painful and debilitating condition, a useful resource for self-care and for bodywork practitioners looking to expand their treatment repertoire. Frozen shoulder, the syndrome name for several joint and tendon-related symptoms, is experienced as a loss of motion and pain in the shoulder and upper arm. It is most often observed in women between the ages of forty and sixty and individuals with type-two diabetes. Traditional medical treatments for the condition, which rely on painkillers, steroid injections and physical therapy, often do little to moderate symptoms or speed recovery. Trigger point therapy, a gentle massage technique that targets localised areas of tenderness in soft tissue, has been used very successfully to relieve pain, restore range of motion and shorten recovery times.
