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 have been using this app for a while now and it’s a great tool to show clients and strategize a plan to release trigger points. Love it. Thank you, Neuromuscular therapist, Tracie

  • Great for Thai yoga massage

    By Barefoot Andy
    I used this alongside our in person anatomy lectures for Thai yoga massage. They were super helpful in tracking muscles and trigger points. I plan to use this while working with clients
  • Are the other reviews fake??

    This app is like 20 slides of some MS paint quality graphics that can be found on Google in less than the time it takes the app to load. Not worth the space it takes on my phone let alone $3.

    I am so happy with this app. Working in outpatient again, I find myself referencing it daily, not only for my education but is easily displayed to educate patients also. Details are concise and easy to read. Thank you so much!
