In this text, musculoskeletal or myofascial pain, often a neglected area of concern, is covered in relation to its successful treatment by trigger point acupuncture. The first part of the book presents the author's view of the history of Chinese acupuncture and its migration to Western countries. The second part deals with the principles of trigger-point acupuncture (a dry-needle technique distantly related to Chinese traditional acupuncture) giving a critical account of the evidence for, and the nature of, trigger points and their use to deactivate pain. The third part gives a detailed and practical account of various musculoskeletal pain conditions and the acupuncture treatment suggested for each, presented by anatomical locus.
