Muscle knots in the trapezius muscle are commonly caused by stress and poor posture.
Additional symptoms may include jaw pain.
Trigger points in the trapezius muscle can be activated by acute and strong traumas, repetitive motions, and mechanical stress.
To check for a knot in the trapezius muscle, grab onto the muscle between the neck and shoulder joint and give it a squeeze.
To find the AC joint, trace the collar bone outward until you feel the end of it.
Grip the AC joint with your thumb and index finger and slowly wiggle it back and forth.

The trapezius muscle is a troubling muscle for many people who suffer from shoulder pain, arm pain, and/or headaches. It consists of three parts: the upper, middle, and lower part, and is responsible for the movement of the shoulder, arm, and neck. Trigger points can be activated by acute and strong traumas, repetitive motions, and mechanical stress, and can be exacerbated by overworked or tense muscles.
