iPhone application detects muscle pain

London, Oct 26: With technology advancement, now a mobile phone health application could pint-point the causes of muscle pain by highlighting its 'trigger points'.

According to the Daily Mail, this muscle trigger points iPhone app shows where the 70 different muscles in the body are, explaining how they work, along with detailed graphics.

One can even view each muscle individually, or use the 'zones' view to see all the muscles of a specific area, the abdomen or the upper thigh.

"Trigger and pressure points have been used in medicine for thousands of years, and the practice of acupuncture is based on this," says Arun Ghosh, general practitioner at the Spire Hospital, Liverpool.

"However, I would be very careful about using an app like this for a diagnosis. Some conditions are not obvious."

"You always need proper scans and examinations to find where a problem begins," he adds.
