Description

Since the publication of the first edition in 2013, the utilization of dry needling in clinical practice has expanded dramatically throughout the world. Indeed, more and more professionals have been using dry needling to effectively reducing acute and chronic pain, as well as improving motor performance, range of motion, and strength.

Following the success of the previous edition, the updated Trigger Point Dry Needling: An Evidence and Clinical-Based Approach remains the first authoritative guide on the market.

With a completely revised text and now full colour illustrations, it provides excellent clarity within content and images for even more uniform and consistent instructions on the needling techniques.

Written and edited by a group of international experts, this is the most-up-to-date resource for physiotherapists, chiropractors, myotherapists, and other professionals as physicians, acupuncturists, osteopaths and athletic trainers.

Review quote

-The book's narrative style incorporates clinical and empirical evidence to underpin arguments for and against dry needling. It takes the reader on a clear journey from the effects of using needles on connective tissue and fascia to the evidence and application of trigger point dry needling...This is an excellent book for any physiotherapist who wants a clinically relevant overview of dry needling.-
