What are Back Muscle Spasms?

Back muscle spasms are a painful and sometimes debilitating condition. These spasms in the back occur when muscle tissue spontaneously contracts as a result of various nerve impulses. Typically, this happens when the body believes that it has suffered damage of some kind. To protect itself, the muscles contract to inhibit movement and prevent additional damage from occurring. If you are experiencing muscle spasms, osteopathic treatment can be a helpful option to reduce discomfort and hasten your recovery.

What Causes this condition?

Like all back conditions, muscle spasms in the back occur for a reason. Of course, those reasons can vary, depending upon the patient. Typical causes for serious back spasms can include a serious injury to the back, joint problems in the spine, and overloaded back muscles. Other causes include:

  • Medical conditions like a slipped disc or arthritis
  • Injury-related conditions like whiplash
  • Muscle sprains or strains
  • Pinched nerves
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Spasms caused by dehydration or imbalances in your body’s electrolytes

In many instances, patients may be unaware of the reason for their spasms. This is especially true in cases where there has been no obvious injury and the patient has no previous diagnosis indicating a serious medical condition. In such cases, it is important to obtain a proper diagnosis as soon as possible.

What Are the Symptoms of Back Muscle Spasms?

Back muscle spasms are like many other back conditions in that they can be accompanied by a variety of different symptoms. These symptoms can include:

  • Sharp, radiating pain throughout the back, hips, and buttocks
  • Dull pain, accompanied by loss of movement and general weakness in the back
  • Severe pain that can prevent the patient from twisting, bending, or even standing
  • Pain in the upper back that spreads to the neck
  • Painful sensations in the extremities

Because back pain is often difficult to self-diagnose, patients who suffer from any of these or similar symptoms should seek medical attention.
