Featured reviews
Rina's presentation and summary of the current evidence for evaluating and treating myofascial pain have both enlightened and deepened my understanding to now consider the use of IASTM, kinesiotaping and dry needling as an adjunct to trigger point therapy, foam rolling and exercise in my practice.
