Muscle dysfunction and injury can take a negative toll on your ability to move and be active.

What Causes Muscular Pain, Spasms, & Tears?

Muscle spasms are caused by involuntary cramps or contractions in the muscle fibers. This causes pain and inflammation in the muscle that can lead to stiffness and long-lasting knots. Muscle spasms can be caused by many different factors, including dehydration, nutrient deficiencies, overuse, poor posture, or even certain medical conditions.

Muscle pain and injury can also be caused by overactivity. If you normally lead an active lifestyle, it can be very difficult to let yourself rest and recover. A combination of myofascial release and biological therapy like stem cells can help you get back to your favorite activities faster.

What Are Common Muscular Pains, Spasms, & Tears?

Muscle Cramps

Muscle cramps happen when the muscle fibers suddenly contract involuntarily. Although they can be a symptom of serious medical issues, they can often occur on their own in response to activity, dehydration, low electrolyte levels, or even pregnancy. Nearly everyone experiences muscle cramps at some point, but they can drastically affect your quality of life if they occur regularly and intensely, especially in social situations or while trying to sleep. It’s best to get down to the root cause of this condition if it’s happening on a chronic basis.

Myalgia (Muscle Pain)

Muscle pain can be the result of overuse, but it can also be the result of many different medical conditions like viral infections, autoimmune disorders, neurological disorders, and even a side effect of certain medications. It can even occur regularly with menstruation. It can manifest in many different ways, whether it’s a dull ache or a sharp, stabbing pain. Although normal muscle pain doesn’t usually disrupt your day-to-day life, chronic and severe muscle pain can require intervention.

Muscle Tears

Muscles can tear from overuse, injury, poor mechanics, or fatigue. This can be not only painful but can also limit your mobility and quality of life. Any muscle can be affected by tears, but many people experience tears in areas like the back, neck, and legs. Tears can often limit the range of motion and movement overall. Stem cells therapy is a great option to help repair the damaged muscle fibers with a simple non-invasive approach.
