How do I know if I’m experiencing muscle tension?
Muscle tension can manifest in different ways and may vary from person to person. Many choose to visit Urban Day Spa to enjoy a relaxation massage to help alleviate muscle tension.
Signs of Muscle Tension
Some common signs and symptoms of muscle tension are listed below.
- Pain or discomfort: You may experience pain or discomfort in the affected area, such as the neck, shoulders, back, or hips. (Contact a doctor if you are experiencing any kind of pain as this could have any number of causes.)
- Stiffness: Your muscles may feel tight or stiff, making it difficult to move or perform certain activities.
- Limited range of motion: Muscle tension may limit your ability to move freely, and you may feel restricted in your movements. (Contact your medical professional first whenever experiencing a limited range of motion.)
- Headaches: Muscle tension in the neck and shoulders can lead to tension headaches, which can be mild or severe. (Check with your medical doctor to ensure the headaches are not caused by other serious issues.)
- Fatigue: Tense muscles can tire easily, leading to fatigue and a lack of energy. (Fatigue is a symptom of many serious conditions. Contact your medical professional to discuss issues with fatigue.)
- Tenderness: The affected area may be tender to the touch, and you may experience soreness or sensitivity. (Many conditions may cause tenderness. Be sure to contact your doctor. While a massage may help under these conditions, it also may hurt if you experience a massage to bruised skin.)
- Twitching or spasms: Muscle tension can cause involuntary twitching or spasms, which can be uncomfortable or even painful. (Contact your medical professional if experiencing twitching or spasms. There may be an underlying condition, or a lack of necessary nutrition, vitamins, etc. as well.)
