Health Concerns - Muscle Pain

Medical Massage Clinic in Delhi

Your muscles help you move and help your body function. Different types of muscles perform different jobs.

With a sedentary lifestyle the combination of poor muscular fitness and persistent bad posture causes many people to complain about tension in the neck-shoulder, in the head-neck and the lower back regions.

Stress can add tension to this as well.

Other causes of muscle pain, also called myofascial pain, are certain medicines, inflammation (e.g. myositis), nerve irritations that affect muscles and other conditions such as some infections etc.

An effective clinical examination can differentiate between muscle insufficiency, i.e. muscles that are too weak, and muscular imbalance. Muscular imbalance means that a pattern develops where some muscles become tense and shorter over time, while their opposing muscles, called antagonists, become weak.

In most cases, muscle pain can be treated very effectively by a combination of passive therapy, physiotherapy and active training of the affected muscles. Because these muscle patterns have been "learned" and engraved over time, it is important in therapy and training to re-train these patterns and restore a normal natural muscular balance.
