Trigger Point/s Application Zones Per Pain Type
Muscles work in functional groups to move or stabilize the body. When a muscle fails, the functional muscle group compensates for the dysfunction which often leads to muscle pain. Muscle pain can be puzzling as it can be perceived at a location different from the source (Referred Pain)
For effective relief of muscle pain, it’s critical to treat the trigger point/s as well as the functional muscle group/s to which it belongs.
The diagrams (below) illustrate the application zones for the most common types of muscle pain.
