    • $2.99



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.

So handy!

I LOVE my trigger point manual, but of course I don't want to carry it around with me, so this app is just the thing! I use it at least once a week for myself, and have used it many times to help friends, as trPs can mimic several things that require surgery, but are MUCH more easy to correct. Visuals, like those provided in this app are crucial when explaining to a person WHY they hurt in THIS area, but need to work in a DIFFERENT area. The reason for only 4 stars, is that it would be nice to be able to flip the process-show me where it hurts, then the possible points that could be causing it. But still, so happy to have this app! Great job! Update: Five stars! The videos are sooo helpful! Thanks so much for creating such a user friendly and educational app! Bravo!!!

So convenient!

I’ve been using this app for over 5yrs now and it’s a really good resource. I am a yoga instructor and after taking many anatomy classes and learning so much over the years, this app on my phone is an extremely convenient way to look up information to help myself or someone else find a way to deal with pain or discomfort.
I used it last week to help my daughter with back pain and how she could alleviate it. Today, I used it with a friend to explain what could be causing headaches because of neck pain and also to explain the nerves and muscles involved.
I have also been able to reach out thru the app to get more clarification.
Great work!

Changing my life!

I have a lot of chronic pain that often interferes with my daily life. I have used a foam roller for ages to relieve painful locked-up muscles. With this app I can target the source of the pain. I have found incredible relief with this app! I was blown away when the first day I spent three hours working through the trigger points and noticed a drastic improvement in many problem areas. I can now easily spend a couple hours slowly going through my problem areas point by point. It is seriously a life saver! Thank you to the creators of this app, I am so grateful to have found this and recommend it to everyone!
