Your muscles a friend or an enemy?
Of course I need my muscles,or even more strength ,is maybe your first thought. But what if the balance between the flexors and the extensor is wrong? The muscle is a contractile tissue that gets stronger and shorter with activity. They get shorter without a adequate stretch and/or wrong posture. An other problem is a static position, let’s say you keep your arm elevated for a couple of minutes. Then you soon get a fatigue in the arm caused by lack of circulation.
As result you get sore areas, trigger points,than can be active or sleeping TP. You get pain and lack of strength in the long run. Furthermore you can provoke an imbalance that change your posture dramatically. This can be avoided or at least reduced if you have someone with the skill to examine and guide you.
Correction of exercises, stretching,strengthening,inhibiting the tight ones, posture correction and ergonomic.
