In brief: Tight Muscles

An overused (repetitive stress) or over-stretched (acute stress) muscle reacts with forceful contraction, probably as protective mechanism to prevent these stressors.
Clinicians can feel tautness & often pain aroused by poking mid-belly of muscle.  surface electromyography (semg) can provide diagnostic data.  physical therapists have modalities to treat.
