The “knot” that isn’t a “knot.. For the most part. I’ve heard many discussions regarding shoulder and neck pain, coming from this region of the neck(where I put a circle). If you look at the the fiber directions, they twist, attaching at the cervical spine and scapula. That being said, this muscle; the levator scapulae tends to get grinded down by body workers and clients foam rolling saying “this knot never goes away” here’s the truth, it won’t go away. This muscle will continue to get abused with the expectation to break down. Look close at the muscle, it’s meant to be this way.
