Maladies Affected by Hypertonic Muscles

The list below doesn’t cover all issues that can be affected or even created by hyper-contracted, spastic muscle. But if you find yourself in this list, consider trying NeuroSoma muscle therapy before you try steroid shots, muscle relaxers or other drugs ~ all which have adverse side effects ~ or certainly before surgical intervention. And remember that static stretching (stretch & hold) and deep pressure into muscle tissue both activate the *‘stretch reflex response’, causing muscles to contract. Perceived pain relief is due to increased endorphin (internal morphine) release.

*The myotatic (muscle) stretch reflex is the automatic, dynamic contraction of a muscle that occurs in response to its being stretched. It is not controlled by higher functioning center ~ i.e. the cerebrum ~ but is a monosynaptic response that is transmitted to the spinal cord.
