Goddamn, I've been struggling with chronic pain that isn't at all relieved by massages and physical therapy and this video only further confirmed that my doctors arent even sure what theyre doing LOL... what helped for my mom is a TENS apparatus tho!

I really hope they figure it out soon. I've had massive knots in my neck/shoulder muscles for 17 years.

Massage does not work my ass! It’s the only freaking thing that actually works.... keep on studying man, what in hell do you know if you don’t know how they form and how to get rid off them. SciShow do a little research the next time so that uploading a video makes al least a little bit of sense...

Hank, are you holding back some information? Don't get me wrong. All I'm saying is... that's knot all there is to it. ... Ok I'll show myself out.

Massages don’t help with knots? I call B.S. Unless you were treated by someone who did not know what they were doing.

I've had myofascial pain sydrome for the last 6 years and I wish to hell they would hurry up and figure it out. MAssaging the trigger point does work but only briefly, and then it comes back. It causes migraine and nausea when in the neck and shoulders, and muscle weakness and shooting pain when in other parts of the body. Yet doctors almost seem to look at you like they dont have a clue as the science on it is so poorly understood and disseminated. In short, its a miserable situation.

Just take painkillers, mask the pain, and continue with your normal life. What can go wrong years down the line?

You don't know how to fix them? I have a video on my channel on how to fix it forever in the shoulders. I treat people all the time.

Do one on Texidor’s twinge aka Precordial Catch Syndrome. Apparently no one knows what that scary as heck but not dangerous at all thing is all about.

It's very important to start from the spine when massaging or exercising. If there's a kink (subluxation) in the spine, it throws the *entire body* out of balance, and your local administrations will be to no avail. Pain in the extremities is usually referred *from* a snurgle further upstream. If you massage/exercise only locally, the deeper snurgle will pull everything askew again in a matter of hours. This is a *really simple principle* that you can demonstrate for yourself or a friend instantly. No need to be mystified by musculoskeletal owees anymore.

these are understood and treatable, the point of this video is they don't have a pharmaceutical treatment worth much; long term pain pills, muscle relaxers. Outside of the pill world there are many effective treatments and preventative habits.

If severe muscle knots don't have a name yet, they should be called HCD: headphone cord disorder

What do we know about fibromyalgia?
Catullus (1 год назад)
I have Fibromyalgia. The most effective method I've found for relaxing knots is to apply moderate pressure along the muscle/tendon and draw along its length from the side closer to your torso towards the end of your extremity. Picked it up from my masseuse. It's quite effective and helps me stay functional.

Why is it that humans go from growing and developing to collapsing and breaking down? What keeps us from continually getting taller and developing more and more cells until we're supersmart giants who can regrow limbs?

I've always been told to eat a banana when I get them. Something about sodium and potassium balance being out of whack, which I know makes sense for osmosis and whatnot, but I'm not sure how that causes muscle knots. Not sure if it's just an old wives tale or not but I still eat a banana whenever I get one. Just in case...

In my personal experience treatment has incorporated the things mentioned but the root cause was beyond the physical. I would love to see a video on the link between ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and physical health problems. The book Childhood Disrupted discusses this link and all the clinical research done on the subject. I have found I not only had to treat the physical symptoms of my pain but the reason I had so much tension in the first place. This might not be the case for everyone but it's bringing a more complete healing process for me.

Fibromyalgia is not a disease. ffs. It's fat American white women who don't want to work anymore going "it hurrrrts" in general area's and doctors going "you have symptoms? oh that has to be medical". No, It's psychological from the start.

look into dr. Sarno. he is the Pioneer and tension mileneural syndrome, or TMS. pain caused by mild oxygen deprivation due to stress.
TheReaverOfDarkness (1 год назад)
In my body, it feels like the muscle knots are a part of the muscle that tenses easily or remains tense, such that if I need the muscle to relax and stretch, it won't and that's when it'll feel pain. It's not the same as a cramp because a muscle cramp would be when it's contracting too far even when I'm not trying to stretch it--though I sometimes get that muscle knot feeling during any cramp.
Chris Read (1 год назад)
are you talking about cramps

We do know what they are and how to fix them. This show just presented the wrong perspective and evidence

Anjalena (1 год назад)
I was hoping so much for some help here! I have severe issues with muscle knots and spasms. Right now I've had a big cluster of painful knots running down from my neck and shoulder on the left side all the way down by my spine and across my left shoulder blade! I do have Fibro, and I've tried stretching, meditating, self-massage, heating pad, plenty of sleep, etc etc. It mostly has gotten worse! And sometimes it's causing migraines, too! (though that could be my thyroid issues causing that) Anyway, no answers, eh? =(

too many taut bands = referred pain... Look it up
Fiona P (1 год назад)
One beneficial way to avoid these painful knots is to do gentle stretching exercises at least three times a day. A good physiotherapist would be able to show these stretches to anyone who visits them

Can scishow talk about other medicine in the world rather than just western medicine? Things like how western medicine sees those other practices, I think that would be every interesting!

Couldn't studies be done by taking samples of the chemical composition around the "knot"? (I thought I heard that the culprit was excess acetocholine or calcium)

What's the opposite of informative? This video.
Justus Scott (1 год назад)
Most of this was wrong. Not ALL knots are my myofascial trigger points. Massage has been proven to work. Trigger points arent entirely undwratood, but knots in general are fairly well understood. I'm not sure where you are getting your facts from. Even if your information was true (which its not), your statement that "because scientists can't yet quantify it, that means it isn't proven or understood" is absolutely ridiculous. Massage has been around since before recorded history and was developed independently from various cultures around the world. If it didn't work to get rid of knots, people wouldn't have kept doing it. I don't need to understand how my body converts oxygen to carbon dioxide to keep doing it. Source: I'm a massage therapist.

only way I found to help with my chronic pain AND muscle spasms was take some CBD at night to relax the body.
thefunway123 (1 год назад)
I had this a month back. I thought, "well here I am just starting my life and I'm already stuck with shoulder/back pain for the rest of my life" because I never had a head ache or back pain or anything like that in my life and I was naturally scared. however the "pain" started to get more and more intermittent day by day, for about 2 weeks and then just disappeared, without me intervening. I should mention that the pain started during my exams, and it was just like a knot-like feeling somewhere in my right trapezius.

break them down, by rolling on a hard ball or get someone to use their elbows on them, how do I know that, don't ask just do it and break them down, it's a muscle that's consistently in a flex position, don't know where it started from, just roll on a baseball or a hard ball, and keep pressure on that point...
