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.

    This app really provides a great on the spot reference guide and a wonderful way to offer clients a visual for greater understanding pre or post therapy. The video content is very straightforward and well produced. All in all a most useful therapy adjunct. Bravo!

    Only feature I would like to see would be being able touch where your pain/problem is and it would show potential points that might help.

    This app is well worth the cost. It is intuitive and very helpful. It has helped me out several times without having to get seen by my physical therapist
  • Has really helped using my Body Back Buddy

    By Mstori880
    I bought this app when I bought my Body Back Buddy to help my sore back. That product came with a booklet but this makes it easier to find the spots I massage/apply pressure so thank you! Definitely worth the $2.99.

    Giving an image to sensations and pain for clients is an dispensable tool more therapists should utilize. This app is wonderful for doing just that!
