You can actually feel them if you touch the area, as it can feel like a tense, bumpy or swollen part of your body.
Whilst they can occur anywhere in your body, there tends to be particular parts of your body that feel tenser than others, particularly if you work in an office job.
You end to find muscle knots in your neck, your back and your shoulders, particularly if you have poor posture.
Getting rid of knots can take some time and involves breaking up the knotted tissue and calming down the nerves inflamed by them.
Resting can help, particularly if you support any areas of discomfort, as can aerobic exercises, but the best way to break knots quickly and provide incredible levels of relief is through massage therapy and hot and cold therapy.
The latter treatment involves constructing the blood vessels using a cold compress and then warming it up with either a warm bath or a heating pad.
Massages are about increasing the circulation around your body, improving blood flow and apply pressure to the knot points in question until they finally soften.
