Knots: Please explain where the "muscle knots" are located? If you have some in your upper or lower back they maybe related to stress or over-working the muscle unit and become balled up and require a orthopedist/pain mgmt specialist or even a LMT. If they are in your lower leg and happen during or after activity, you may need more electrolytes before during and after workouts!
