Muscle knots are hard, sensitive areas of the muscles that contract and tighten even when your muscles are resting. When touched, the tension in these muscle fibers can trigger pain in other areas of your body.

Another name for muscle knots is trigger points. Muscle knots can be caused by the following:

  • Poor posture
  • Injuring or overusing your muscles
