Back Pain Muscle Spasms:
Causes of - and treatment for - Muscle Spasms in Your back. Back Pain Muscle Spasms: Do you get sharp spasms of pain associated with your back pain?
These sharp pains are generally muscle spasms. Muscle spasm is where there is a persistent increase in tension in muscle fibres - often associated with shortening of the muscle and pain.
You might ask what causes a muscle spasm? There can be many causes for your muscle spasms, and muscle spasms vary in severity from mild cramping-like symptoms, to severe pain and tightness. In the worst cases, I have seen clients rolling around in pain.
The spasms I treat on a daily basis at my physiotherapy clinic are rapid uncontrolled contractions which happen very suddenly, and my clients tell me they sometimes occur for no apparent reason at all. I commonly call these spasms “secondary muscle spasms” as they are usually a secondary symptom of another underlying injury or condition.
