The Causes of Shoulder Knots and What Makes Them Worse

Shoulder knots are a common problem that can be caused by many different factors. Many people experience these knots between their shoulder blade and spine. The most common causes of shoulder knots are poor posture, overuse of the shoulder muscles, and stress.

There are many different things that may make shoulder knots worse. For example, if you have a desk job, sitting in one position for long periods of time can make your shoulders tight.

Ways to Manage and Treat Shoulder Knots

For a chiropractic adjustment, the doctor will use their hands and/or an instrument to make sure that the rib joints are in alignment. They will also be able to feel if there is any tension or misalignment in your muscles.

Massage therapy is also a great way to relieve sore muscles and knots in your shoulders. You can find someone who specialises in deep tissue massage for help with this type of relief.

Without proper management of the shoulder pain, this could lead to further complications in the area and deteriorated range of motion.
