It seems like just this morning that I woke up with a “knot” between my spine and shoulder blade. In fact, it was just this morning. Sometimes when I sleep on my side that happens.
Side sleeping can cause muscle spasms or knots in your upper back like this: The shoulder you are sleeping on is rolled forward. The muscles between your shoulder blade and spine get pulled or stretched. They don’t like it so they go into a type of spasm or contraction. That is your muscle knot.
Here’s some quick self-help.
Tennis Ball Therapy to the rescue! Lay on your back and place a tennis ball or similar ball under your knot. Just lay on it for about 5 minutes. In about 5 minutes you will notice you don’t feel the painful knot or the tennis ball as much. That’s because your muscle knot is relaxing.
You may have to do this in more than one location.
You can use a tennis ball anywhere on your back. Just use it on the muscular parts, not on the bones.
If you have a ongoing muscle knot, the tennis ball technique may not help much. In that case, you need to relax or release ALL of the muscles that are pulling on and around your shoulder blade and spine.
That’s why I created the program Knots In Your Back. (<– click here.) When you understand the cause(s) of your knots you really can get rid of them and keep them from coming back. Claim your free report about getting rid of those miserable knots in your shoulder naturally.
