APP review: Muscle trigger point anatomy
“Discover the source of your pain” – Muscle trigger point anatomy by Real Bodywork (LINK)
Muscle trigger point anatomy:
The Muscle trigger point anatomy App is an anatomy reference for the most common trigger points and referral patterns for over 70 muscles. Muscle trigger point anatomy is a great App for Biokineticists, Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Therapeutic massage therapists, Physical therapists, students, or patients wanting to discover trigger points, locate the source of muscular pain, and learn about muscle function.
The App 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.
As a stand alone tool this App is limited. But if it is used as a guide in conjunction with the advice from your Biokineticist / Physiotherapist / Osteopath, it can be very useful. Please ask your therapist for their recommendations. Your Biokineticist / Physiotherapist / Osteopath can illustrate which trigger points are most relevant to your condition and prescribe the correct self directed soft tissue release (SDSTR).
