I read on http://www.spine-health.com/glossary/muscle-tension:

Stress may change the body's nervous system by constricting blood vessels and reducing blood flow to the soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, and nerves in the back.

Has any scientific study confirm and quantify that the reduction of blood flow in the soft tissues resulting from stress?

I am mostly interested in tendons that attach to the epicondyles at the elbow end of the humerus, and to a lesser extent in forearm muscles.
