Has anyone told you about “the knots” when they go for a massage?
What is muscle knots?
Muscle knot is the muscle that tighten and contract, it is hard, sensitive areas of the muscle that can be painful to the touch. Which is also called myofascial trigger point in medical term.
Trigger points typically fall into one of two categories:
- Active. These active trigger points produce intense pain in the body.
- Latent/hidden. You don’t feel pain from these latent/dormant trigger points unless you press on them, resulting in tenderness or a dull aching sensation.
What cause muscle knots?
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Overusing or injuring your muscles
- Poor posture
- Unhealthy diet
- Tension from stress, depression or anxiety
- Prolonged sitting or bed rest
What is the symptoms of muscle knots?
The muscle knots can occur anywhere in the body where muscle and fascia is present. They are normally found in back, neck and shoulders.
In the myofascial trigger point, people may experience “referred pain”. When it are bring pressed, the pain spreads from the trigger point to nearby muscle.
When you touch the muscle knots, it may feel swollen, tense and bumpy, also tight and contracted
That can cause some symptoms such as:
- Jaw pain
- Lower back pain
- Tension in muscle
How massage can get rid of muscle knots?
A well-trained massage therapist will be able to feel your knots, touch them deeply (that you can even feel them), and “untie” them for you. In fact, the knots feel like lumps deep under your tissue that were created by tensed muscles. An office person usually has knots on their shoulders and back. We have seen them all.
The experienced massage therapist should be able to point them out, relax them out, and may help to release knots at the end of your treatment.
Your muscles feel tired. Your body is sore.
