As the article suggests, the first step is taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine (please see step 1). Every evening, morning, and day, apply anti-inflammatory gels. Start exercising every other day to build up other muscles around your affected muscle. When working out, apply heat rubs and cremes but follow the exact instructions on applying these, which usually state that heat rubs cannot be applied for more than several days, and wash off the rubs or cremes thoroughly after working out. Regular massages and protein-rich nutrition will help in recovery too. Always keep the muscle warm, which means no walking shirtless outside. Personal experience shows that even one-year-old or two-year-old mild-to-severe pains will be cured with this approach.

I have several muscle knots in back and neck my massage therapist found?

I had a bad reaction to taking a steroid and my chiro doc said that I went into a fight or flight mode and it torqued all the muscles up. I have been doing deep tissue massage for three weeks two times a week and it has been helping very slightly not sure if he is just taking my money, it is 125$ each visit. he referred pain from my back up to my ear that's been hurting for over a year and that does seem to be improving but there is a ringing in that ear also that hasn't gotten any better, I believe the ringing in left ear is related to the neck and back muscles. also, the ringing started the night I took the steroid. backtracking a bit I fell really hard slipping with a hose and landed on concrete, my problems started right after that, I was having constant ear aches in left ear I ended up going to ent doc who said I had TMJ and put me on steroid and muscle relaxers, I think I was misdiagnosed and now believe it was from whiplash soon after the ear my neck was hurting really bad, I was going to massage and after first visit the woman said I should see chiro there might be something else wrong. I saw a doctor and she sent me for X-rays, I had mild straightening of the neck due to muscle spasm and she determined that I was having a pinched nerve between c6 and 5, that was September of 16. she has been doing chiro once a month and I did pt for 3 months. I have made much improvement but still, have a long way to go. when I swallow I have crinkling and popping in left ear mostly when I sit. when I do sit I have the ear problems and before I started pt all the neck muscles would flare up with pain and swelling not so much anymore but I still do have all the symptoms just way less. I have tried acupuncture that didn't help at all. I'm not sure if my problems are from taking a steroid and muscle relaxant or if it is from falling and suffering whiplash or if it is a combination of both but I'm looking for a solution to these symptoms and get some relief it has been over a year and it is exhausting

I'm constantly getting knots. Everywhere. They hurt and it seems like no matter how long I rub them, they just won't go away?

I get knots constantly. on the top of my shoulder, right by my shoulder blades, on my neck and the upper center of my back. the ones on top of my shoulder are like the size of golf balls. I have tried: I've rubbed them, I've had other people rub them, I've used a tennis ball, and massage tool... they just don't go away. I think it was caused by: Stress, lack of sleep, my bra straps

Tight muscles (or knots?) around my body. Should I still lift weights at the gym?

My chest gets tight because of working out. Also, some other parts are weak (like my glutes, back) and that forms tightness and knots at different places. While lifting weights help to strengthen my muscles, it tightens other parts as well. And I love lifting weights. Should I still do it? For example, squatting. My quads are super tight without many movements (say, going up the stairs) hence it gets tired easily. So what should I do in order to continue squatting and treating my quads' extreme tightness at the same time?. I have tried: Foam rolling on my quads, helps a lot but I haven't tried lifting ever since. Also, it feels so good that I do it so long. Which is why I can't afford to do it every day because of limited time. How long should I foam roll?

For my chest, I roll on a lacrosse ball and stretch them. Feels good, but gets tight very quickly on the same day too. I think it was caused by: Sedentary lifestyle (it's become a habit, hard to break), working at seated position a long time
