What’s holding you back?
Being held back from doing what you want by your own body is frustrating. Aches and pains can keep you from doing the things you love, or even just walking.
Your body strives to protect you from harm, and sometimes it’s a little too good at its job. One mechanism it uses to keep you safe is by forming muscle knots. Muscle tension is the body’s defense response to muscle overwork or injury. To protect the damaged area from further harm, the muscles around it tighten up into a knot. The fibers in muscle knots can become tangled, resulting in a limited range of movement, or chronic pain.
