Muscle knot is small area of muscle that may cause significant pain in response to touch.

It can be around your neck, shoulders, back, hips, knees, ankles and all these kinds of joints included.

Do you why does it happen?

It can happen by our bad daily habits such as sitting in a poor posture, prolonged bed rest with awkward posture, repetitive motion and lifting movement, ongoing stress and tension.
