Trigger Point Maps
  • This page contains information about muscle (myofascial) pain in the Chest and Abdomen region. It would be impossible to describe each and every muscle in detail, so I have therefore concentrated on the common ones.
  • Please look at About Muscle Pain, Trigger Point Treatments, and About Botox, and Exercises for more information.
  • Please note - in the diagrams below:-
    • X = the position of the trigger point (TP).
    • = the position where the referred pain is felt.
