"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)
"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
"If you want to handle your repetitive strain injury, today is
your lucky day. It is simple to apply Valerie DeLaune's suggestions
to your aching body. At the same time, this book is profound enough
to teach an old dog like me a bunch of new tricks. If more people
read and applied what is in this book, there would be fewer doctor
visits and the world would be a happier place. Congratulations on
your choice in reading this book and enjoy being pain-free."
