Symptom Checker

Please review this page and then click at bottom to go to the Symptom Checker.

  • A person does not need to have all of the pain that is diagrammed in the drawings. Compare the pain that is felt with the symptoms listed for each muscle.
  • In most cases there is more than one muscle that is responsible for pain complaints.
  • There are specific stretches for each muscle which are integral to successful therapy. The stretches are not provided here because there may be a contraindication to stretching in your case. Please seek help from a Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist for proper stretching instructions.
