3 Stages of Muscle Spasm

Muscles and Fascia spasm is caused by psychological and emotional defence……….denial, judgement, projection, attack, withdrawal. Collapsed … resigned low energy, needy, dependent. Held up… arrogant, proud, anti dependent.

When the muscle cells are underfed and at the same time overworked because they are in a constant state of contraction this creates 3 stages of pain cycles:

  1. The first stage, the muscle feels sore and moves into a light pain. At this point, the ache and pain are trying to get our attention. If we get the right bodywork now the symptoms will be easily alleviated.
  2. At the second level, the muscle and fascia become more contracted and less fluid goes to the cells. Here, micro-tears — meaning microscopic cuts that are mended together by scar tissue. Scar tissue is not elastic or porous. It inhibits movement in the muscle and creates more tension, which in turn reduces circulation and pinches more nerves — it’s a vicious circle.
  3. At the third level, scar tissue becomes more and more prevalent, often taking the space of the muscle tissue itself. The pain here is debilitating, the fascia is very dry and rigid, the whole area is dehydrated and tense. This brings on a very strong pain. Also Radiating Pain and numbness down the legs and arms. Weakness in the muscles.

All the symptoms our medically diagnosed as a disc problem. Surgery is recommended. When someone’s only tool is a hammer everything looks like a nail. The medical world sees spinal pain as a problem in the disks and joints. They are not seeing the obvious. Ninety Five…..95 % of body pain is soft tissue spasm.
