How To Get Rid Of Knots In Your Back

Want to know how to get rid of knots in your back? Knots in your back can be quite painful, and working them out can be quite a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be as hard as it seems. Follow the steps below to learn how to get rid of those knots in your back, without hurting your hands.

Step 1: Have any friends who have complained of a stiff neck or back? How did they resolve the problem? Try the methods they used to see if it really worked.

Step 2: Find a buddy to help you with your knots because it will be difficult to do this yourself. Get comfortable, and have your friend place their hands on your shoulders and gently squeeze to determine how tight your shoulders are. Have them locate your spine, because they will not want to apply pressure there, or on the shoulder blades.

Step 3: Using the elbow, lean into the top part of the shoulder. He or she should ask you if you feel enough pressure, so advise them if you need more or less pressure at this point.

Step 4: Make sure to keep the lines of communication open, alerting your friend if you feel any pain or discomfort, or if your friend is not being affective to your back knots. Give guidance while the knots are being worked out.


  • Make sure your friend is careful during this massage session; you do not want to end up worse than before this method started.
  • If your knots do not go away, it might be beneficial to see a chiropractor to make sure it is nothing serious.
