Answer

Exercise or physical therapy may be helpful in preserving range of motion and in relieving symptoms related to prolonged muscle tension. In addition, muscular biofeedback may be helpful, although careful studies of physical therapy treatments have not been done. Keep in mind that activity or exercise may exacerbate spasms.
