The Wellness Digest Helps You Find The Source Of Your Muscle Pain
Muscle pain is complex. Where you experience the pain may not be the source of your pain. Using the diagrams below, click on the diagram where you are experiencing the pain. On the next page, find the muscle that most resembles your pain pattern. You do not have to experience all the pain and symptoms for that muscle to be the culprit. Toward the bottom of the page are a list of muscles that you should also consider. Keep in mind, there may be more than one muscle contributing to your pain. It may take some patience and time to figure out which muscles are the source of your pain, but stay with it, the relief will be worth it!
This section was set up for therapists, trainers, students, and others interested in muscle anatomy. The information includes where the muscle originates and where it inserts, in other words where the muscles connect to bone, tendons, and ligaments. The agonist and antagonist muscles are listed for each muscle movement. Muscle innervation and blood supply are also listed.
