This is a practical text on the use of acupuncture for the relief of musculoskeletal pain, looking exclusively at the treatment of trigger points by acupuncture. Dr Baldry is an experienced medical physician who has used acupuncture as part of his therapeutic repertoire for many years. He discusses the scientific aspects of acupuncture and demonstrates its use in Western medicine. He writes at a suitable level for students and/or practitioners, combining academic knowledge with practical advice. This well illustrated new edition contains several expanded chapters and introduces one on the use of trigger point acupuncture for relief of muscular pain.


This book provides an excellent, lucid, and westernized approach to one school of acupuncture. I commend it to Physiotherapists, rheumatologists, and general practitioners who are interested in all aspects of musculoskeletal disease."Tha Lancet
a well written, scholarly book which I find of considerable benefit in its description of the anatomy and mechanism of trigger point activity. He diagrams of muscle structure and trigger point location are excellent. ... should be regarded as a "must" for those involved or interested in trigger points and musculoskeletal pain."The European Journal of Oriental Medicine
a welcome addition to the pain literature.... Dr Baldry's intention is to place acupuncture within the framework of known mechanisms of pain physiology, provide a scientific foundation for its use, and promote its inclusion in the management of certain pain syndromes... The book is recommended for those familiar with either acupuncture or with myofascial pain syndromes, and who wish to broaden their perspective of the treatment of these conditions"Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain
continue to be impressed by the scope of this book with its extensive range of references from many different sources. The second edition brilliantly joins together the ancient craft of acupuncture with current scientific understanding of the needle effect. It is copiously illustrated throughout with clear line drawings which, together with the text, provide a practical guide for clinical use. It also contains sufficient theory and historical background to allow a broad overview of the subject. This book remains required reading for all who are concerned with needling techniques and the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders
