Repetitive strain injuries to the shoulder, back, and arm can cause debilitating pain that keeps you from being able to perform even the most basic everyday tasks. Compounding the frustration, it can seem that there's nothing you can do to ease the discomfort caused by your injury and speed your recovery.

Identify the specific trigger points in muscles that are causing your pain

"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."
