According to Michael, muscle pain occurs when skeletal muscles stretching and stiffness suffered because of excessive movement or unbalanced. As a result, muscles convulse after contracting in a long time without stopping. Due to having less muscle relaxation, plus a limited body movement or static, the muscle will shorten suddenly and inflamed.
“This is actually the body’s reaction is normal and natural to protect the body from too heavy a burden,” he said.
