Muscular spasms may be caused by either direct damage to muscles (e.g. pulling a hamstring whilst running) or as a protective contracture, which is often nature’s way of creating a splint to protect an underlying fault.
If you are experiencing prolonged muscle or tendon pain then we can assess the problem and provide treatment directly to the tissues that are causing discomfort as well as identifying any underlying maintaining or predisposing factors.
A normal treatment may involve manipulating the muscles, ligaments and tendons involved to help increase blood flow to the area, thus promoting the tissue healing process and relaxation of tight muscles.
