How to Alleviate Back Spasms

Back Spasms

Coping with back spasms or muscle spasms can be a real hassle and even interfere with your life. Not to mention the discomfort or pain you may be enduring on a regular basis because of them. What you may not know is that chiropractic care can be a great way to work through this. Although many people think of chiropractic care for neck and back pain, few people realize how a chiropractor could help with back spasms or muscle spasms.


So what is a back spasm?

  • When you have a back spasm or muscle spasm, you actually are experiencing a shortening of the muscle. This is caused by an involuntary contraction.
  • Most commonly, people experience muscle spasms in the neck, back, legs and arms. However, people can have muscle spasms anywhere in the body.
  • A spasm can feel like a sudden tightening, cramping or even a sharp pain.
  • Muscle spasms can be caused by a variety of things, but are often due to exercising without allowing the muscle to properly rest and relax.
  • Muscle spasms can also be the sign of a more serious problem such as multiple sclerosis and should be evaluated by a doctor.


So how can a chiropractor help?

Many patients prefer to work with a chiropractor because it means a non-surgical and drug-free approach. Of course, this is the same reason some people are skeptical about the possibility of it working. The thing is in addition to spine manipulation chiropractors can also work with joints and soft tissue. Getting to the root of the problem like this instead of just using drugs or surgery to mask a problem helps truly alleviate a condition. It also makes it less likely to have the problem return.


For many problems concerning the body, chiropractic care can accomplish what other methods cannot. The best part is it can be approached in a more natural manner as well.
