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.

  • Great review.

    By curlynux
    Great review of the referred pain patterns. I wish they were more videos. Overall, a great app.
  • Useful for an LMT

    By Dragonkanya
    I just shared this app with a coworker and a client. It’s very useful to keep up with my trigger points, having taken the class 15 years ago. User friendly and thorough.
  • A great, convenient reference!

    This app is a great reference, both for checking where a trigger point may refer, and for checking what trigger points may be contributing to a particular pain area. It also gives some video tutorials/ideas on how to treat trigger points! It’s well worth the price!
  • Love it!

    By Patti Levin
    It is easy to use. And can learn the techniques. Easy to understand.
  • Extremely useful as an LMT and for life

    By hfoolio
    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.
