What is muscle balance?

It is the balance that is maintained between the muscles around the joints in regards to its length and strength. Any form of disproportion might lead to muscle imbalance such as stiffness of muscle due to increased tightness and a decrease in tightness will increase the motion and instability of the joints. Due to excessive exercise if the muscle strength increases then there might be issues with the internal joints, whereas weak muscles will have poor joint control.

What are the other causes of muscle imbalance?

Muscle imbalance also occurs between the larger muscles that control the movements of the joints and the smaller muscles that lie underneath and control the stability of the larger muscles. Such imbalance is found especially amongst the gym goers who mostly focus on the growth of the larger muscles.
