How to get rid of muscle knots would be really great information at 3:30 AM when your calf muscle seizes up with a “life-threatening” charlie horse! Ever had that happen to you? It’s a stand up in the middle of the night watching your toes curl up and not being able to stand.
Or you wake up in the morning with a neck that will only turn in one direction. That “medical emergency” is named a “crick in the neck”. Another great time to have more information on getting rid of muscle knots.
Or when you have what is termed a huge knot between your shoulder blades. When you take in a breath and it feels like a knife is stabbing you in the back.
Which brings us to one of life’s big questions: “Can you really get a muscle all tied up in a knot?” The professional massage therapists at Bella Reina tell me no, but this is what was explained to me.[clickToTweet tweet=”‘Can you really be all tied up in knots?’ Physically or mentally or BOTH?” quote=”‘Can you really be all tied up in knots’ Discover the knot slayer!” theme=”style1″]
Katie first explained to me that muscles are all throughout our bodies. The muscles themselves are elastic by nature and very strong, like the big rubber bands used by the US Post Office. Either through over use or injury or something else (lack of water), we can lose flexibility. Then the muscles start sticking like glue to each other. Once that starts, it’s time for the bumps, knots and lumps to appear.
She also explained that you can also have scar tissue from muscle tears that can be lumpy too. These, she said tend to be smaller ‘lumps’.
Supposedly everyone gets muscle knots which means they are fairly common. And you know just because something is common, it doesn’t mean everyone should have it! Some things are just meant not to be so common.
And muscle knots are one of those things that you want to get rid of. For many reasons, but as it is explained to me, if you don’t fix them, the knots will turn into scar tissue. Also, your posture can be affected. And neither of those are fixable.
So the real answer to the question, Will a massage get rid of muscle knots? The answer is yes. For more information on muscle knots or a massage, call the spa at 561-404-7670.
