Most chronic pain first occurs as either an acute episode, or quite mysteriously a niggling twinge. You wake up one day with an ache or move a certain way and feel something give and end up with a pain that won't go away. The reality is you could have done something the day before, a week or even a month ago that overworked or strained your body in some way and started something that has, weeks later, become the chronic pain you now feel.
As tension builds up in a muscle, circulation is restricted and that muscle becomes weak causing other muscles to compensate as you go about your everyday movements. These other muscles then start to overwork, fatigue and tighten up and, for the person who pushes themselves, one of those other muscles can eventually tighten up and give way to a point of pain or inflammation.
