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.

Treatment Options

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is one of the best treatment options for relieving muscle tension. Massage treats the muscle tissue directly and can release the muscle back to it’s full length easing the muscular tension.

Yoga

Yoga is possibly the oldest form of stretch. Some believe yoga to be over 5,000 years old. Yoga uses specific stretch techniques to lengthen and relax muscles while simultaneously working with your breath to relax the mind and manage stress. Yoga treats both the physical and mental side of muscular tension.
