Involuntary, constant tone.

This is expressed, for example, in unconscious clenching of the jaw (bruxism), raised shoulders tense, etc.

This tension often occurs due to stress, accumulated severe emotional and physical fatigue, habit, after all, and is very hard for the body.

We lift our shoulders as if trying to cover our neck, while straining it, freeze often in an uncomfortable position without feeling it because of the rush of hormones and blood. All this creates triggers in our muscles, muscle clamps, which then cause pain.
Constant muscle tension can lead to fibromyalgia (a form of extra-articular soft tissue disease characterized by pervasive musculoskeletal pain and the presence of specific painful points or sensitivity points that can be felt by touch) and a complex regional pain syndrome.

Impetuous, unprepared muscle contractions, incorrect body position against the background of anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, insomnia, intrusive thoughts cause acute muscle overstretching with its subsequent cramp and pain.

In some people with post-traumatic stress disorder, the contractile apparatus of the respiratory muscles is permanently overloaded, resulting in chronic respiratory muscle spasm!

To get rid of this spasm, it is recommended to use preparations from Saizen You will be able to continue exercising and tighten your body

But there’s nothing good about muscle cramps either

– when the process becomes chronic, they end in myofascial pain syndrome!

Do you have an overstretched muscle: check it outAfter a stressful situation, the best thing to do is to stretch well, get the blood flowing and thus relax the tense muscles. But who does that? Very few people! And meanwhile, if stress is frequent, there is even a spasm of the cervical collar zone, which reduces the blood supply to the head by up to 20%!

Moreover, there is pain in the neck and head, especially in the occipital area or migraine-like pain covering half of the head; less often there is pain in the temporal area or in the face, mimicking trigeminal neuralgia.

Temporal area pains are often connected with the chronic tension of the muscles clenching the jaws: when experiencing unpleasant feelings, you automatically clench your teeth without noticing it (this “stressful” habit can lead to an unpleasant condition called “temporomandibular joint syndrome”).

Head “tension pains” often manifest themselves as a feeling of a tight “helmet” (there is even a figurative expression “neurasthenic helmet” in medical language) being put on the head and gripping it grievously.

Tension of the muscles of the neck and neck leads not only to pain in this area, but may also be accompanied by dizziness and other very unpleasant manifestations. Often the appearance of pain, heaviness in the cervico-occipital area coincides with an increase in blood pressure.

This is exhausting and creates a huge muscular imbalance that does not resolve itself, even when you rest more, exercise more, feel happier, sadder, it does not matter.

The overstretch will persist until you become aware of it and begin to work with it.

Often such people are “shuffled off” to various therapists with the adage, “It’s all in your head, sweetheart. In such situations, it can really seem as if the whole body or some part of it is in constant pain and nothing helps.

In such a situation, you need to become aware and find the localization of the tension. The right exercise in this situation is a calm, moderate type of workout, in which you should focus on isolating the muscles, feeling the muscles work, without special joint activation of whole muscle complexes.

First of all, you will need to stretch those muscles that are in tension, perform the so-called myoscipular release. For this you will need either a roller or a trivial tennis ball.

Place the ball on the injured surface and slowly but inexorably roll it across the surface in different directions. The pressure should be sufficient, but not painful: on a 10-point scale of pain intensity, the sensation should not exceed 6.

Gradually increase the speed of the rolls and their intensity. Do not hold your breath! After relieving overstrain and severe pain sensations do not abandon the release, go to LFC complexes that will prepare your body for a more serious load.

Exercises should be performed slowly, thoughtfully, without sudden movements. On average, the activation of muscle potential occurs in 8 weeks, so focus on this period of getting rid of problems.
