Our Mississauga therapist understand muscles spasm or tightness may produce extreme muscle stiffening after a traumatic injury or repetitive strain. The difference between a repetitive strain and a traumatic injury is that with a repetitive strain the muscles are being irritated over a long period of time until they reach a point that finally triggers the spasm. The muscles then spasm to protect the area from further injury.
These injuries can be extremely painful and lead to tearing of the muscles if undue stressors are placed on them. This tearing will than lead to guarding of the back muscles through extreme stiffening to protect the area from further harm. With proper massage therapy for the area, the pain in the back musculature should lessen over three weeks, but it should be noted that the healing of the area continues and doesn't even peak until at least six weeks following the initial injury.
