Say Goodbye to Muscle Knots!

By Donna Stark

If you have ever been stressed or have worked a long, difficult week, chances are you have noticed something weird going on in one of your muscles. Actually, weird is not the best word to describe what you were feeling. A better word for it would be pain, right? Because that's what muscle knots do. They cause pain and discomfort. Fortunately, if you are still experiencing these unwanted guests in your life, there are some things you can do that will bring relief to your body.

What Is a Muscle Knot?

A muscle knot can be either an achy, tender spot on the body or a hard, painful intrusion in your life. People who are prone to them usually notice them popping up in their back, neck, or shoulders, but they don't always stop there. Muscle knots can also cause pain to travel to many other parts of the body as well. Where do they come from? Good question! Take a look at the most common causes below.

  • Sedentary lifestyles
  • Overuse of muscles
  • Injuries
  • Poor posture

  • Chronic illness and disease
