Common causes of tense and tight muscles are:
- Overusage. Repetitive movements or poor posture can result in overusage and overloading of a muscle, leading to weakness and injury
- Stress. Stress causes our nervous system to overload and our muscles become a reservoir of tension. To exacerbate the problem, stress also promotes inflammation, causing us to be more prone to injuries and pain.
- Nerve irritation. Our muscles are controlled by our nervous system. When our nervous system is injured, our muscles go into spasm and contraction. This can be an acute phenomenon or it could be a gradual problem that accumulates with time.
- Dehydration. Long-term inadequate intake of fluid causes low level of electrolytes in our body. Lack of electrolytes can cause muscles cramp and tightness.
