A lot of different trigger points (TrP) will cause those referral patterns. Vastus laterals goes from the TFL area, down your ITB and ends at the lateral knee. Vastus meialis can cause inside knee pain... The best book to get a hold of is the Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manuel by Dr. Janet Travell and Dr. David Simmons. These show thousands of trigger points and give very detailed referal patterns. They have vol. 1 upper body, and vol. 2 is lower. I haven't found them in public libraries, but have heard them found in medical libraries. You can also call local massage schools or chiropractic schools (both do TrP) and asks who teaches TrP, and what their back ground is. Then see if they take clients.
