Author Claire Davies' own case of frozen should led him to undertake an extensive study of trigger points and referred pain that eventually resulted in his runaway best-seller, The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook. Now this renowned bodywork expert and educator revisits the subject of frozen shoulder, offering the most detailed and comprehensive manual yet available about this painful and debilitating condition, a useful resource for self-care and for bodywork practitioners looking to expand their treatment repertoire.

Frozen shoulder, the syndrome name for several joint and tendon-related symptoms, is experienced as a loss of motion and pain in the shoulder and upper arm. It is most often observed in women between the ages of forty and sixty and individuals with type-two diabetes. Traditional medical treatments for the condition, which rely on painkillers, steroid injections, and physical therapy, often do little to moderate symptoms or speed recovery. Trigger point therapy, a gentle massage technique that targets localized areas of tenderness in soft tissue, has been used very successfully to relieve pain, restore range of motion, and shorten recovery times.

About The Author

Clair Davies, NCTMB, is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and a graduate of the Utah College of Massage Therapy. He specialises in trigger point massage for the treatment of pain. His interest in massage began when he successfully self-treated a frozen shoulder with trigger point massage. Inspired by the experience, he began an intensive private study of trigger points and referred pain. The end product of this study was a simplified method for treating myofascial pain throughout the body. Massage therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors and physical therapists all over the world are now using this new system for the relief of joint and muscle pain. Countless thousands of pain sufferers have benefited from the self-treatment techniques.
