When you have chronic muscle spasm in your back, the affected area will tend to suffer from an increasingly painful condition, because when muscles are in strong spasm neves our pinched and blood blocked from reaching and leaving their own cells. Little vessels, called capillaries, that bring blood to the cells, get compressed by the spasm, so the needed nutrients -- oxygen and other essential supplies carried by the blood -- don’t make it to the cells in the quantities required to keep them healthy, The Muscle and Fascia are Under Nourished, Over worked, chronically contracted....... swimming in its own waist..

2) At the second level, the muscle and fascia become more contracted and less fluid goes to the cells. Here, micro-tears ( meaning microscopic cuts that are mended together by scar tissue. Scar tissue is not elastic or porous. It inhibits movement in the muscle and creates more tension, which in turn reduces circulation and pinches more nerves-- it’s a vicious circle.
3) At the third level, scar tissue becomes more and more prevalent, often taking the space of the muscle tissue itself. The pain here is debilitating, the fascia is very dry and rigid, the whole area is dehydrated and tense. This brings on a very strong pain. Also Raidiating Pain and numbness down the legs and arms.
