Knots between shoulders

November 20, 2018

Hi there,

My boyfriend suffers quite badly with his back and has lumps (knots) on both the left and right shoulder blade. I am trying to find the best therapy/massage for him.

What would you recommend?

Thank you, Clare

Hi Clare

Massage will make him feel great – it’ll be a “little” uncomfortable during and better later BUT it won’t get him any better.

Physio – understanding what he’s doing and why, what needs to move more (thoracic spine) and what needs to be controlled (neck and shoulder) will take a little longer to control his symptoms BUT it will get him better and he’ll have all the tools to make sure he can control his own symptoms – and knots!
