How to treat a muscle knot

Now that we have looked at what a muscle knot is and what causes it, we will take a look at the different ways to treat muscle knots.

First of all, start treating it early, either by seeing a massage therapist or by treating it at home.

Heat: 

Tight muscles usually have compromised circulation, which means that a little less blood, with it's nutrients and oxygen, reaches the area. It also means that the lymphatic system does not remove waste products from the area as well as it should do. By applying heat to the area, the circulation is improved, speeding up healing time.
