Muscle Relaxants.

Our muscles are a very important part of the body.They allow us to move and act on our ideas.Some muscles such as the Cardiac muscles are involuntary muscles and work independently of our nervous system and thinking. Others such as the 600 plus skeletal muscles in our body are designed to act in response to our every whim. They contract when working and relax when still.This is the function of a healthy muscle. However, sometimes our muscles wont relax. They can react and contract just in response to our own feeling of mental tension and worry and stay that way until we relax.Other times muscles lock up due to injury or repetitive strain such as a bad sleeping posture. There are muscle relaxants designed for all types of muscle tension and injury and we note the most common of them here.
