Back Spasms Mantua

When the muscles supporting the spine are overworked they can cause a back spasm. When the muscles contract near the nerve root it can cause serious pain. Back spasms can inhibit your daily life and you may find that completing the simplest of tasks becomes extremely difficult and painful.

When you overstretch a muscle it can become very tender or inflamed. Sudden movements can frequently cause your back to spasm and can become extremely painful.

Among other things that can increase your risk of suffering a back spasm are:

  • Weak stomach muscles
  • Tight hamstrings
  • A tipped pelvis
  • An exceptional curvature of the lumbar spine
  • A back condition such as arthritis or spinal stenosis

Typical back spasm treatments usually involve resting the back first, then as it heals starting to strengthen the muscles that support the spine. Bed rest is not typically recommended for the long term, as it can sometimes increase the healing time. While resting, experts recommend that you lie on your back on the floor with a pillow under your knees, or with your knees bent and your legs resting on a chair. Anti-inflammatory tablets are recommended, such as ibuprofen. However, try to avoid taking them long term as they can have negative effects on your liver. You can also apply heat for 20 to 30 minutes at a time to help soothe the back muscles.

Spinal Subluxations May Be Causing Muscle Imbalances…

After your back has healed and you have an increased range of motion it is a good idea to visit your chiropractor. Your chiropractor will be able to remove any subluxations that may be occurring in the spine and causing imbalances of the muscles. They can also create a rehabilitation plan that will be customized to your personal needs. Regular chiropractic adjustments along with a structured rehabilitation program will help to prevent the spasms and pain from returning.
