working. Especially with computers. I personally changed to a
different computer mouse years ago because of the way
traditional mouses caused me to hold my hand. It wasn’t painful
for me physically but it was affecting my hobby – sleight-of-
hand. So I changed and never looked back.
This week both my wife and a couple of my children were having
some pain. It was referred pain, meaning the pain originated
somewhere other than where you feel it. How do you know if it is
referred pain? Simply push on the pain and see if you can touch
it. If you can’t it is referred pain.
In all three cases here the pain was referred. My wife had pain
on her upper arm, my son near his hip, and daughter on the front
her leg. So we pulled out our copy of “The Trigger Point Therapy
Workbook” by Clair Davies. All three were helped by the
information in this book.
I found this interesting book while researching Fibromyalgia and
TMJ a few years ago. Nobody in my family has Firbromyalgia but a
friend of mine does and I wanted to know more about it. I have
TMJ that acts up on occasion. Somebody suggested this book and
I picked up a copy. It took a bit to understand the concept and
how to apply it but the result has been worth it.
The author began researching trigger points to help with a
frozen shoulder. The technique involves applying short, repeated
massage strokes to trigger points, tiny contraction knots in
muscle tissue where restricted circulation and lack of oxygen
cause referred pain. My family has found this book useful and I
have shared it with everyone I meet who is having pain. Read the
