Muscle Spasm vs Cramp
The main causes are from the muscles spasms are tightening of the muscle, muscle stiffness, injury/disease, or muscle overuse/fatigue (Hypothyroidism), low red blood cell count (diabetes, anemia), nerve dysfunction, kidney failure, a large number medications can trigger #musclespasm as well.
10.3 Muscle Fiber Contraction and Relaxation – Anatomy and Physiology
The top panel in this figure shows the interaction of a motor neuron with a muscle fiber and how the release of acetylcholine into the muscle cells leads to the release of calcium. The middle panel shows how calcium release activates troponin and leads to muscle contraction. The bottom panel shows an image of a muscle fiber being shortened and producing tension.
Everywhere in your body is tissue called fascia. Scientists are unlocking its secrets.
Experts say studies on fascia could reveal discoveries about our anatomy, including cures for illnesses. By releasing fascia through bodywork, it could be possible that fascia becomes more pliable, lymphatic fluid flow increases and swelling goes down. Similarly, releasing fascia could help reduce gastrointestinal distress, including constipation, bloating and acid reflux.
Microscopic Anatomy and Contraction of Skeletal Muscle
Microscopic Anatomy and Contraction of Skeletal Muscle. We have already examined the structure of skeletal muscle as seen with the light microscope. As you know, skeletal muscle tissue has alternating light and dark bands, giving it a striated appearance. The electron microscope shows that these bands are due to the arrangement of myofilaments in a muscle fiber
