Muscle knots, also known as myofascial trigger points, are tight, sore areas of muscle tissue that can cause pain and discomfort. These knots form when muscle fibers become stuck together, either due to overuse, injury, or poor posture.
Trigger point massage helps to break up these knots and release the tension in the affected muscle fibers.
Muscle contraction is another common issue that trigger point massage can help to address. When a muscle is overused or stressed, it can contract and remain in a tense state, which can cause pain and limited range of motion. Trigger point massage applies direct pressure to these contracted areas of muscle, encouraging the muscle fibers to release their tension and relax.
