Industry Reviews

"Myofascia has been quite a buzz word in recent times and there has been much written about the understandings and treatment methods for these 'newly (re) discovered' structures. My main concern was that some of these text lacked an in depth understanding of the subject and did little to explain how fascia fitted into the clinical puzzle. I'm happy to say that this book is excellent and addresses all my concerns! The first few chapters explain the terminology, physiology and anatomy as well as aetiology and pathophysiology of myofascial trigger points." By InTouch (Physio First's journal), Jan 2015
