Knots or muscle spasms in your upper back can benefit from this simple tool: a tennis ball.
Tennis balls can be a very easy, cost effective way to get rid of muscle spasms or knots near your shoulder blades. The only thing is, sometimes they are a great way to get rid of knots but sometimes they don’t work as well.
When tennis ball therapy doesn‘t get rid of your muscle knots, it’s because muscles somewhere else in your body are pulling on your upper back and causing your knots in your shoulders.
In that case, you have to figure out what the cause is and attack the cause. You might be able to do that with a tennis ball–your very own personal “massage therapist”–or you might have to hire a very skilled massage therapist to help.
But you don‘t want to go to someone who just blasts away on your knots. If the tennis ball doesn’t help, that won’t help, either.
You want to go to someone who can figure out why you have them and how to get rid of them. In the meantime,
Here’s How to Use Tennis Ball Therapy
1. Get a tennis ball or a similar ball.
2. Lay on the ball on the floor. Position the ball under your most tender knot.
If you have to lay on the bed, you won’t get as much pressure from the ball.
3. Now just lay there and let gravity help you.
In about 5 minutes, you may notice that you really don’t feel the tennis ball much anymore. That is because your muscles are relaxing. That is the job of the tennis ball.
4. Then move the ball to another tender place and just lay there for about 5 minutes until you notice it relax.
The nice thing about using a tennis ball for therapy is that it’s simple and often very effective.

When you understand what is causing the muscle spasms in your upper back, you can get rid of them. Remember, not all massage therapists understand the causes of upper back pain so it’s up to you to educate yourself and maybe your therapist, too.
You deserve to get rid of those miserable knots near your shoulder blades.
