Re: Knots in back
here's one for ya-I have them horribly-they are bad and we (dr and myself) think mine are from my neck arthritis and disc bulge. My husband can't rub them long enough and they NEVER go away. But, when he finds one, I make him push as hard as he can that I can handle, and the pain shoots straight through my back to my lungs then up to my temples. It hurts so but feels good too. The only time they went away was after my transforaminal injection and that helped relax those muscles. But, they are back. I don't know if poor posture (I stand awesome, but sit poorly), work related, or structural from my neck issues. I also carry all my tension in my shoulders and neck. But, we had hoped that was from my low back problems, but since my surgery-the neck stuff has just gotten progressively worse.
