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
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.
More value then more expensive medical apps
As a massage therapist I can do more than simply recommend this to other professionals. It offers a tool for explaining and self-help with my clients. Triggerpoints is well organized , easy to understand. I have paid hundreds for classes and books without learning as much as I have from this app.
