Do you have knots between your shoulder blades? Check out this video! It will dive into why people develop knots and how to get rid of them. NO, YOUR MUSCLE IS NOT ACTUALLY TWISTED INTO A KNOT. Bad posture and a lack of stability are among the two most common reasons knots start to develop. Both can create stiffness in the upper back which restricts blood flow to the area. Blood is responsible for bringing nutrients and keeping tissues lubricated so they can glide on top of each other. When there is a restriction of blood flow the tissues become “sticky” and are not able to glide creating a group of muscles that are “stuck” together. These tips will increase the blood flow and create more stability which will get rid of those knots and make life more enjoyable.
