View Full Version : Have you ever...?

Had this problem? I have a couple knots in my upper right shoulder area. I've had two massages for it. The first one, in mid July, only made things worse. The one I had a few days ago, the masseuse was really good at her job, and she said that when I came in the knots were hard as a rock. The thing is, the knot isn't fully gone. It still hurts...and I JUST had a massage. It keeps me tossing and turning all night long! I'm so sick of it. I know one thing I can do, lay under a tennis ball, and roll it back and forth on the knot, but that doesn't really work for me, it just irritates it more..

What exactly is a knot?
Do you have rope on your back or something?

It's part of a muscle, typically in the back or neck, that's completely bunched up and tensed. http://www.wisegeek.com/what-exactly-are-muscle-knots.htm

Maybe you should try visiting the same masseuse for a few sessions and see if it helps over time.

Do you lift weights? I've gotten knots in my back/shoulder's from lifting weights.
On a side note: One of my weight lifting songs has the same name as this thread:eek: Clicky (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIws6nr_fc4)
