Causes of muscle pain
Muscles need a substantial amount of energy to function properly, all the while producing waste. When a muscle is contracted, the blood flow is reduced, leading to an insufficient supply of nutrients and oxygen. At the same time, waste stays in place. As a result, lactic acid builds up in muscles and causes muscle pain and stiffness. This leads to muscle oxygenation. If muscle pain lasts until the next day, it is possible the muscle tissues have been micro damaged. These pains last a day or two.
Another problem could be lack of ions. The absence of calcic ions causes hypocalcemia. The muscles become sensitive and there is an increased risk of the occurrence of cramps. Potassic ions lead to hypocalcemia. This leads to muscle tissue damage and they subsequently hurt.
Long-term tension and anxiety can have similar effects to recovering from an injury. Stress and psychological nervousness can lead to a muscle injury.
Muscle overuse or muscle stiffness can be caused by a sedentary lifestyle. Muscle pain is often caused by insufficient blood repletion, fevers, loss of muscle mass, improper footwear or improper spinal position.
The most common muscle complications
Muscle pains can be associated with various difficult stages. Less serious sources of muscle pain are muscle fever or a ripped muscle. The most complicated issues require a more difficult treatment. You should always seek medical help when experiencing muscle injury.
Muscle fever (soreness): Muscle fever is caused by ripped muscle micro tissues. This ripping is caused by an exertion so strong the muscle can’t bear it. These microtissues are not of the same width or quality and the weakest can rip easily. It is, however, a natural process, as these microtissues constantly renew.
Muscle cramps: Muscle cramps are caused by lactic acid build-up in muscles which leads to blocking the regeneration. Muscle pains are caused by muscle cramps which occur mostly in the lower limbs. Another possible causes can be: rheumatism, fever, lack of magnesium and potassium.
Muscle inflammation: Treating inflamed muscles can last a couple weeks. After overcoming inflammation, try gradually increase muscle exertion. Inflammation has a tendency to return or become chronic.
Tendons inflammation: Inflammation can worsen by growing from itching into intense pains. Tennis elbow is a common condition. Inflammation and pain is caused by exertion, improper footwear or dehydration.
Strained muscle: Symptoms associated with strained muscles are pain, swelling, bruises which are caused by damaging muscle ligaments. All it takes is to go beyond your abilities, make a fast movement, or exert the body too much and a strained muscle can occur.
Ripped muscle: Immediate movement blockage, massive blood strain, bruises, swelling and incredible pain are associated with ripped muscles. A fast movement or exertion can lead to a ripped muscle. Complete ripping of a muscle comes after it was already slightly ripped and weakened.
