A Clinicians Guide to Myofascial Pain in the Canine Patient
by Dr. Michele Broadhurst, Antony Angus, Year 2020, File Type: PDF
This manual is an essential resource for anyone who is interested in treating pain in their respective practices. For the veterinarian who spent only a few weeks in college learning about the musculoskeletal system and wants to understand it better and treat their patients more effectively, for the veterinary dentist, who is struggling to help patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or the physical therapist who feels like massage isn’t quite cutting it, or for the chiropractor who can’t understand why their adjustment isn’t holding and the patient is still suffering. No one has time in their busy offices to lug out an enormous textbook and start paging through it for 15 minutes while their patient and client sit waiting. Small Animal Surgical Nursing 3rd Edition
This has been designed as a quick reference text for those practitioners that have a patient presenting with a myofascial pain syndrome and need to quickly recap what muscles can be causing it, where those trigger points are, how to treat it and what to do post treatment.
The author has more than 16 years of practical hands on experience and has worked on thousands of patients ( human and animal) to bring you the most valuable and concise information that you will need to be successful in dry needling in your practice.
This book has been well thought out, written for the practitioner, by the practitioner. Easy to navigate- with clear charts, this book is definitely user friendly for quick reference. Excellent inclusion of integration within a healthcare team as well as incorporation of modalities such as laser, ultrasound and ESWT for those whom needling is not within their scope (or those who may have these modalities, or be interested in them). This text is a must for anyone working with dogs- whether you’re the vet, the chiro, the vet physio- all can benefit. I’ll go as far as to say Dr Michele has thought of everything and I don’t get to the end of the book feeling let down it didn’t meet my expectations. It exceeded my expectations and has equipped me, as a rehab practitioner, to not only enhance my skills for my patient but also to further educate my clients for clearer expectations and happier outcomes.
