Is it really carpal tunnel problems? -- or strained neck muscles. Is it really arthritic knees? -- or tight quads?
Find out with Range-of-Motion (ROM) testing -- a powerful tool for finding the source of pain and dysfunction of muscular origin. ROM tests are often ignored by therapists, but are an important part of Travell & Simons' protocol for treatment of muscular pain as described in their landmark work Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual.
Some of these tests will be familiar class exercises to students of yoga and martial arts, but here are the actual muscle names behind tightness and pain.
Set of 2 charts (22" x 34" on heavy paper stock with aqueous coating). The muscles most likely to inhibit a given motion are listed in order of likely involvement. All muscles are linked to fascial lines proposed by Tom Myers. Designed to be used in combination with pain charts such as Travell & Simons Trigger Point Pain Charts. For muscle lists, see Tom Myers' Anatomy Trains.
