Reasons for muscle tightening

The reason why muscles clump is because it's called a trigger point.


The trigger point is that small dots on the muscle fiber occur when it is very static, does not move for a long time, or has a bad posture, which causes muscle clumping.


When a trigger point occurs in the muscle, it tells the brain not to use the muscle at the point where the trigger point occurs. If that happens often, the muscle will atrophy and weaken.


In the end, it becomes a vicious circle.
