Back Muscle Spasms: Causes, Symptoms, & Treatment

Back muscle spasms can cause significant discomfort and interfere with your ability to move and function. Fortunately, there are several treatments available to help reduce pain and manage the symptoms of a back muscle spasm. Contact us to book an evaluation and treatment.

Causes of Back Muscle Spasms

Back muscle spasms can be caused by various factors, including muscle strain or injury, poor posture, overuse, and stress. In some cases, underlying medical conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or arthritis can also contribute to the occurrence of muscle spasms in the back.

Symptoms of Back Muscle Spasms

When experiencing a back muscle spasm, individuals may feel a sudden and intense tightening or cramping sensation in the affected area. This can result in significant pain, restricted movement, and muscle stiffness. Muscle spasms in the back can also cause referred pain, which radiates to other parts of the body, such as the hips or legs.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, book an appointment for an evaluation and treatment.

Treatment of Back Muscle Spasms

The treatment of back muscle spasms often involves a combination of approaches to alleviate pain and promote healing. Initially, rest, gentle stretching, and applying heat or cold packs to the affected area can help relax the muscles and reduce discomfort. Over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications may also provide temporary relief.

For long-term relief and rehabilitation, the DBC program is highly effective. DBC is a specialised exercise regimen designed to strengthen the muscles supporting the spine, improve posture, and restore functional movement. This individualized program focuses on targeted exercises and emphasizes proper body mechanics to prevent future episodes of back muscle spasms.
