If you sit at your computer all day, or sit in your cab (if you are cab driver) or do strenuous physical workouts, or even getting mentally stressed with the things going on in your life, you may feel your upper back muscles getting all tightened up and twisted in knots.
These knots, also known as “trigger points” can occur when your muscle fibers are not able to relax adequately. They’re commonly found in the trapezius muscle, a large muscle that extends from the base of your skull down your back and out to your shoulders.
Muscles knots are hard, sensitive areas of muscles that tighten and stay contracted even when the muscle is at rest. These tense muscle fibers can cause pain in other parts of the body when touched. They’re also known as trigger points.
Our muscles are meant to be pliable, strong, and challenged. However, when we sit at a computer all day in the same position and if we injure ourselves, or if we are chronically dehydrated, we can lose our mobility and flexibility. The various muscle fibers start to stick to each other and become adhered. This new hard and lumpy feeling is a muscle ‘knot’.
Muscle knots can occur anywhere in the body, but they’re usually found in your back, shoulders, and neck. They often show up in your buttocks muscles, too.
Muscles knots can cause aching sensations and pain in your muscles and joints. When you touch a muscle knot, it may feel swollen, tense, or bumpy. It could also feel tight and contracted, even when you’re trying to relax, and they’re often sensitive to the touch. The affected area may even become inflamed or swollen.
Muscle knots can cause symptoms in areas outside of the muscles, including headaches, toothaches and earaches. You may also experience stress, anxiety, and depression, and have difficulty sleeping.
The knots in your upper back also have an emotional meaning. It may indicate that you are taking on more tasks or responsibilities that you can handle. You may want to think through various aspects of your life to see if you are overburdened with responsibilities and which ones you can let go of at this time.
If you go to the doctors, they may suggest you to take an injection or steroid medication. We feel it’s better for you to seek out a less invasive and natural remedy before going for that.
