Treatment For Muscular Tension

treatment for muscular tensionMuscle tension is a condition where muscles of the body remain partially contracted even when we are not active. Muscle tension is often presents from the effects of stress and can cause ached and pains all over the body.

Stress can cause the bodies nervous system to go haywire and constrict blood vessels and as a result reduce blood flow to muscles and tendons. This can then cause a decrease in oxygen and a buildup of waste products in the soft tissue resulting in muscle tension, spasm, and pain.
