Dry needling is the ideal tool for a wide range of therapists involved in treating myofascial trigger points in adults. This book is written in a concise manner as a "quick to hand" reference guide regarding key issues around safe, effective and appropriate dry needling. It represents the ideal accompaniment to course notes and the perfect in-office tableside reference guide. The Concise Book of Dry Needling provides accurate and essential information for the identification and subsequent treatment of myofascial trigger points through the exclusive use of a fine, filiform needle. Skilled palpation skills supported by the ability to visualize and observe anatomical landmarks are essential to avoid neurovascular and other vital structures that could result in insult, injury, or additional pain. The book includes a description of the origin, etiology and pathophysiology of the myofascial trigger point, plus indications and contraindications for myofascial trigger point dry needling, supplemented by color anatomical images, referred pain patterns, and photographs to show correct needle application/insertion.
