If you feel danger all the time, then the muscles that are responsible for defensive movements – “bend down”, “crouch”, etc. will be in continuous tension. And from this, a clamping of these muscles can appear, which can affect neighboring, dependent organs.
When there is a constant danger (or a sense of danger), a constant readiness for protection is instinctively demanded from the body. What do different people do in case of unexpected danger – for example, with a loud sound? One will bend over, the other will sit down sharply, press his head into his shoulders, push his shoulders forward, raise his hands to be ready to cover with them.
This means that where the danger is constant (for example, at a construction site), there the corresponding muscles must be in constant readiness. For example, those that are responsible for tilting the neck – dodging and head protection. Or the muscles in the place of the spine where the ribs end – those that are responsible for bending and squatting.
The spasm can also be caused by psychological pressure. If it is perceived in the same way as a danger, then the muscles instinctively prepare themselves for tension, for a jerk. And someone’s aggression or condemnation, if for some reason you react sharply to it (for example, because it seems important and authoritative) can lead to spasms. And constant non-stop spasms – to injuries.
Constant over-readiness is usually an overvoltage, clamp. And the clamp disrupts mobility and blood circulation. Because of what neighboring connected organs may suffer, or those into which the nerves pass next to the clamp. Also, cramps, which are repeated for a long time, gradually injure muscles and joints.
In addition to constant stress, danger is a distraction. Because of this, there is not enough attention on yourself, on your body – it can remain “unattended” for too long when signals from it are ignored. This means that you can skip the necessary response to some important internal problem.
It is not the danger that is important here, but the sense of danger. Not peace, but a sense of peace. And probably the first step is to transfer additional attention and control to the tight muscles. To better control them when the danger is real, and to relax, release them forcibly when there is no danger.
The second step is avoiding the dangers if possible, studying them. The better you understand them, the less unnecessary stress.
The third step is exercises that load the contracted muscles so that their constant readiness can be continued, a way out. In addition, you force them to relax, rest after that.
The feeling of danger, peace and confidence is greatly influenced by one’s own strength and agility. It gives you the confidence and control that relieves stress and thus clamping. Even if the danger persists. Although I have met strong and dexterous people who still had clamps. Probably external circumstances are still as important as self-confidence.
