Muscle tension is an acute or chronic condition where one or more muscles remains semi-contracted for a prolonged period. This causes small lumps or “muscle knots”which you can feel by touching the affected area. Any muscle can feel stiff or tense; however, the most affected areas usually are the neck, the cervical area, the trapezius muscle, the lower back and the legs.
