Why do we have tight mucles?

April 7th, 2011 • Posted by Kim Lee • Permalink

There are many reasons why or muscles are tight or contracted. It is mainly due to stress whether it is preceived or actual. For today let's look at our posture as one of the main culpits. Remember when your mother told you to sit up or stand up straight? She told you to hold your head up. Well, she was right. When we have poor posture and our head moves forward or backwards even a little bit it causes strain or stress on our spinal cord and system's supporting it, which in return signals the muscles to contract in defense.
