Do muscle knots come out on their own?
Knots are persistent and most will remain until the knotted area is broken up and the muscles contract. Limited range of motion, pain and tightness will persist until the muscles are loosened and circulation returns to the constricted area.

Essentially, muscle knots have reduced blood flow and circulation, which means toxins can become trapped in these areas. Over time, trapped toxins will solidify in the muscle knot if not dealt with, resulting in hard, crunchy bumps.
Do muscle knots have toxins?
As knots are made up of toxins, this allows your body to relax and remove them from the area, alongside carrying nutrients to the area which weakens the strong and tense fibers. Massage can also directly remove or reduce the knots by applying direct pressure on the trigger points within the knot.
What is the popping sound when you get a massage?
Muscle adhesions feel like a snap, crackle, pop when your therapist works on them. But it is the fascia or lining around your muscles that balls up from repeative movements. The heat from friction and pressure your massage therapist applies allows the fascia to contract back into place.
