    One thought on “The Concise Book of Trigger Points”

    1. This book is written more for health care practitioners than for laypeople (when I showed it to my physical therapist, she was so impressed that she asked to borrow it till she could find her own copy!), but I like having it on hand to complement a more layperson-targeted book (my personal choice for the layperson category being The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook).
