Do you have certain muscles that are constantly stiff and tight?
It may not come as a surprise that muscular stiffness, tension and tightness is one of the most common complaints encountered among practitioners. With many possible causes, it’s important to seek the assistance and treatment of a professional in order to prevent further injury or complication.
Ironically, when you experience straining, tightness or tension in your muscles the brain will respond by further tightening the muscles in the area. While this may seem counter-intuitive, it is actually a response designed to provide protection to the affected portion of muscle.
Muscle straining, tension and tightness can have various sources, including:
- Poor posture
- Weak muscles
- Inadequate warm-up, cool-down or stretching
- Anatomical issues
Likewise, there are various treatment options available such as different manual therapies and advice on correct movement techniques.
