Muscle Trigger Points
By Real Bodywork
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
A Reference for the most common trigger points and referral patterns for over 70 muscles. Features 100+ trigger points with their corresponding referral patterns. Each muscle includes the visual referral pattern and point location, plus a written muscle action, referral and comments 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, a great help in discovering the source of pain.
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.

What's New in Version 3.0.1
This app has come in handy a few times. I use from time to time to see if there's another idea or I'm missing something when working w/my clients. But I do wish it was much more detailed, these are all very superficial.
To those upset by lack of instructions to release the TrP:
Listen folks, there's a reason Massage Therapists have to go to school and pass national exams to be licensed. You CAN hurt yourself, or perpetuate and worsen the problem, going at it on your own. Go see a LMT. To get your monies worth, get a referral from someone you trust or call a high end spa (one w/no hair salon), tell them you need someone good w/pain management and ask for someone who's been doing it 3yrs+.
Great app for locating trigger points!
For anyone interested in trigger point therapy, this is a very helpful app for locating the most common possible trigger points to work on for relieving pain.
Trigger point locations are shown along with the regions they can affect. Work backwards from the paint region to locate trigger points to treat. Very helpful, especially since the trigger point can be located away from the pain.
Use this in conjunction with a good book on trigger point therapy to understand how to treat pain.
Excellent Adjunct Tool
Have been using this app as a guide to help confirm the patient's reaction to compression-initiation of trigger points in the right side of the head, especially where the seventh nerve emanates. The app has allowed the treatment applied to the trigger points discovered to be confirmed the result being reduction of chronic pain for longer periods of time than without using the app. Many thanks to the app providers.
