without further over-exertion. However, muscle soreness or pain that persists or repeatedly returns with no explanation needs
Muscles respond to gravitational pull on the body and in so doing, keep you in balance when you are
in an upright position. If you are standing or sitting in an unlevel manner, the weight of your body will not be over its support
structure (your low back and legs). This puts you off balance and your brain detects this.
As a result, certain muscles
will tighten up to rebalance the weight of your body. If these muscles remain this way, they can go into spasm and eventually become
swollen and painful. This is the soreness that is experienced with muscle problems. Left unattended for a long period
of time, muscle balance (left vs. right or front vs. back) will be affected and a structural condition occurs that can lead to further
problems that affect bone and joints.
