REPETITIVE STRESS (MUSCLE TENSION/SPASM) TREATMENTLet Spring Creek Medical Center in Logan, UT help you relieve some stress.
What is Repetitive Stress and Muscle Tension/Spasm Treatment?
Stress is wear and tear on the body as a result of anxiety, worry, or exhaustion. This can occur over a long period of time or it can be a faster, difficult or intense experience which causes irritation and/or damage to a person’s nervous system. It can cause a buildup of toxins in the muscles of the body that causes continual tension and muscle spasms.
Spinal trauma creates areas of weakness that can show up with the onset of stress. Some of the most common causes of spine and nerve damage are auto accidents, poor posture, birth, falls, sports injuries, and repetitive motion injuries.
Stress Overload Causes Tension and Alters Your Posture and the Shape of Your Spine
Stress normally attacks your body in areas that have been weakened or injured in the past. A person with a damaged neck under stress gets headaches. A person with a damaged lower back who is stressed often gets back pain, circulation problems, menstrual problems, or even colitis.
The primary symptoms of stress are:
- Digestive trouble
- Aches and pains
- Difficulty sleeping
If you have more than one of these stress symptoms, or you experience that symptom more than once a month, you may have a stress disorder. If your resistance is low and your stress is high, you will feel fatigued, unhealthy, and become prone to illness.
