Learn common trigger points for more than 70 muscles
Discover more than 100 trigger points with referral patterns
View each muscle individually or use the zones view
An anatomy 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.
This is a clean app to know about human anatomy. Granted I had grabbed this on the day it was free but still I feel it is well worth the $3 price tag. The user interface is clean and easy to use. While this app may not be for everyone it is valuable app to have if you frequently have muscle pain and need to discuss this with your doctor. Or this app will provide insights when your doctor blabbers something about 'Gluteus maximus' and you want to know what the heck is that :) (Just an example)
There are no permission issues nor there is any add-on modules that you need to be worried about. It is well done app and I give it five stars for the content presented.
This app has a lot of valuable information and is great for troubleshooting the root cause of specific aches and pains. From this app, I actually determined a potential misdiagnosis of the cause of my lower back and glute pain, so I have an appointment with a specialist to investigate that further.
The app uses proper anatomical terminology which helps the reader understand correct naming conventions and thereby sound intelligent or at least informed when speaking to others about it, particularly when discussing it with healthcare professionals in an effort to establish diagnosis. However, the downside to that is that if you are not well informed in anatomy, haven't studied the subject, and/or do not work in a related profession, you really need a dictionary or other reference material nearby when reading some of this becuase you would otherwise not understand what is being discussed.
Overall, it serves its purpose well and is nice to have available for reference. The images are also very helpful in defining precise locations of pains, especially if you do not know the proper terms for those body parts.
Excellent graphics and design showing the major and minor muscle groups to apply pressure and massage ---now all I got to do is to get wife to do it- easier expressed than done! Good information within this basic program without having to wade through "GRAYS ANATOMY"' (lol) This ancient knowledge has been around along time and works to relive pain and tensions.
Muscle Trigger Point Anatomy by Real Bodywork is a must-have for body workers, physical therapists, and, well, anyone with a human body. It is easy to understand quickly as a reference for immediate relief yet goes into more detail to increase knowledge. This is a great book
I love this app! Have had it for aboit 4 years. I'm a massage therapist & this has helped me many times on uncommonly sore areas on clients. Found the trigger point and voila..happy.client. Very clear, understandable app. Love you can also search by muscle name Have also used this app for my own sore muscle areas. Thank you so much!
As a massage therapist, I use this app frequently before (and sometimes even during) a session with a patient. It has saved so much time taking me directly to an area instead of trial and error. And the patients are happy for more bodywork time, too!
