I've had lots of people suggest trigger point therapy, which I believe is the technique of applying intense pressure to the trigger points (muscle knots) using a lacrosse ball, or something like it. Does this sound accurate?

My question is, how long should it take to solve these muscle knots I have in my back and shoulders? I've been going at them for about two weeks now, at least twice a day and they're still there and still causing tension.

Does anyone have any experience in this area?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
