Author Clair Davies' own case of frozen shoulder led him to undertake an extensive study of trigger points and referred pain that eventually resulted in his best-seller, The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook. Now he 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 is experienced as a loss of motion and pain in the shoulder and upper arm. 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.Davies, Clair is the author of 'Frozen Shoulder Workbook Trigger Point Therapy for Overcoming Pain & Regaining Range of Motion', published 2006 under ISBN 9781572244474 and ISBN 157224447X.
