WHAT IS A KNOT IN THE MUSCLE?
Well the medical term for a knot is a “myofascial trigger point” ,but even though the medical profession has give it a fancy name, surprising little is know about them.
Biopsied (cut out) pices of muscle knots have shown some abnormal protein deposits. It is also widely believed that there may be excessive connective tissue in a knot, however, there has been very little in the way of studies done to confirm this.
The one thing we do know is they cause a great deal of pain and discomfort!
WHY DO THEY FORM?
In normal movement and activity our different muscles swith on and off as necessary. However, in some activities, for example, heavy lifting, the same muscle remains “on”, something it is not designed to do. The same, continuous movement performed over a prolonged period overloads the muscle and a knot forms.
HOW CAN WE EFFECTIVELY TREAT KNOTS AND RELIEVE PAIN?
There are several recommended treatments including hot and cold packs, electrical stimulation, ie, ultrasound, accupuncture etc. All of which should be under the supervision of a professional healthcare practitioner.
One of the most effective treatments is massage. Massage calms the knot and although some pain can be experienced at the time, most people report a relief from pain afterwards. A massage can also be relaxing and very beneficial to your sense of wellbeing as well as effective pain relief.
It also does not have to be expensive. Here at Ananda Healing we are offering a full body Swedish masage for just £35 between the 01st and 23rd of December 2011!.
