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 am a chiropractor & I do a LOT of muscle work on my patients. I use this app to show referred pain patterns to my patients & also, take a lot of screenshots to send to them for home care. It's pretty comprehensive & quite usable.

  • Best App I’ve bought

    Simple and straight forward. If you’re a massage therapist like myself and you treat trigger points, couldn’t recommend this app enough, not only does it benefit you from the info they give it can also help you visually show your clients/patients exactly what is going and why. If I could give it a 6 out of 5 I would, price point for the info worth every penny.

    This app is much quicker and simpler to use than websites I would search for trigger points before. I can usually find my main trigger and release it within a few minutes after opening the app. A couple of angles are hard to determine where the point is, such as the top of the trapezius gives a 3/4 side view. The maps the app has have always been very accurate for me for referral pain.
  • Great massage therapy app
