What is a knot?

What is a knot?

Muscle fibres run in all different directions within the muscles of our body. Muscles are layered on top of each other, and all being good, when these fibres are in good shape and working together this means we are flexible.

However, sitting at a desk too long or being dehydrated can mean we lose that flexibility as the fibres become compromised. Knots occur when muscle fibres become stuck together due to injury or damage.

Poor posture can lead to damaged fibres as the fibres become overloaded or conversely they can switch off.

What can I do about muscle knots?

Muscle ‘knots’ are incredibly common but common doesn’t mean they're a good thing. The good news... there are plenty of things you can do:


1. Massage - the friction will help separate the fibres, re align the fibres and restore balance
2. Hydrate and eat well - good nutrition will keep the muscle fibres healthy
3. Exercise - brings oxygen and nutrients to the muscles
4. Stretch regularly - restore mobilty to tight muscle fibres
5. Take breaks and move - if you are sat at a desk for long periods of time or any static posture for a long time try to move as much as you can.

Finally, also importantly, take time to RELAX.

The connect between the mind body is very strong, one affects the other so taking time to relax is very important. Listen to your body and time so time out when it’s needed.
