Almost everyone has experienced some type of muscle or joint discomfort in their life. The entire human body is covered with muscle tissue and joints that are in motion almost constantly, making it easy for discomfort to appear anywhere, anytime. The most common type of muscle discomfort is lower back pain. It is estimated that up to 80% of the adult population in the United States has lower back pain. It’s a top reason why people see a doctor. It is also a leading cause of disability in Americans under the age of 45.[1]

Muscle aches may involve ligaments, tendons, and fascia.[2] A ligament is fibrous tissue that connects bones to other bones. A tendon is a band of tissues that connects muscle to bone. Just like ligaments, they are made of collagen. Fascia is dense connective tissues that connect muscle, bones, and organs.[3]

Why Do Muscles Get Sore?

Sore muscles can result from a variety of reasons; exercise is the most common.[4] Other factors, such as stress can cause a stiff jaw, neck, or aches elsewhere on the body.[5] Twisting, bending, or straining can also cause problems.[1]

Certain medical conditions and diseases, such as fibromyalgia, infections, flu, Lyme disease, polio, and lupus, may cause muscle soreness.[2] Car accidents are a significant cause of injury, usually to neck muscles.[6] Almost 2.5 million people are injured or disabled in road crashes every year! Dehydration can cause electrolyte imbalances due to low levels of potassium, calcium, or magnesium and lead to muscle cramps and discomfort.
