Tuberculosis of the spine, osteomyelitis, disc herniation). Stoddard sees the metabolic wastes, which may result from a degree of stasis, as causing a vicious cycle in perpetuating muscular contraction, leading eventually to fibrous changes.

This process of sensitisation involves local oedema, release of neuropeptides such as substance P, subsequent compression of venous vessels, venous congestion (which reduces blood supply) and therefore local ischaemia. Ischaemic conditions lead to the release of more bradykinin, ensuring a vicious cycle, which engenders sensitisation of pain receptors. In skeletal muscle, ischaemia results in interference with normal energy (ATP) production, which leads to disturbance of normal calcium pump activity, preventing actin and myosin filaments from releasing their contractured state.
