Have you experienced shoulder pain? If yes, you might be suffering from a common problem known as back or shoulder ‘knots’. Many people suffer from back and shoulder knots pain. The pain felt is caused primarily by muscle spasms resulting in small build ups of tissue, referred to as knots because they feel tight and lumpy under the skin. It occurs because the muscles are over stretched and become firm.

Old fashioned home remedies include placing a tennis ball on the floor and lying down, as the ball rolls, the pressure breaks up the knots. Hot or cold compress and eating foods rich in potassium is said to help in reducing the pain.

To reduce the pain? Pain killers are often prescribed but won’t get to the root of the problem. Massage by a professional physiotherapist is advised.
