A reference for trigger points and referral patterns for 108 muscles. Features 160 trigger points with their corresponding referral patterns, 80 conditions that can be caused by trigger points, and 25 videos that show how to release specific muscles. Each muscle includes the visual referral pattern and point location, plus a written muscle action, referral, origin, insertion, nerve, comments, and audio pronunciation for each muscle. You can choose to view each muscle individually, or use the zones view to see all the muscles that refer into a specific area (or for a specific condition). This is a great help in discovering the source of pain. This app features all the scientifically proven trigger points and referral patterns as shown in the research. Trigger points are tight places in a muscle that cause pain to be felt elsewhere in the body. This is great for massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, or anyone wanting to discover the source of muscular pain, and learn about muscle function.

    I bought this app years and years ago when apps were just starting to be a thing. I had no idea how frequently I would use this. I refer to this for migraine causes, send screenshots to friends when they are complaining about muscle pain and I use this to quickly identify trigger points for referred pain in my massages. The cost of this app is nothing in comparison to the information it is actually providing.

  • Muscle pain and dysfunction

    By Joey683
    Love this app! My only complaint, is not being able to place notes on the various muscles. I use the app to educate my patients on why they are having pain. I also use the app to explain why I’m not working on their area of pain. The app also helps to explain why they feel a sensation in their back when I’m working on their stomach. I have been doing manual for 22 years and this app is a great tool have in a clinic. Joe
