Muscle Spasms

When a muscle contracts and tightens, it should release and loosen again. A muscle spasm or cramp is when a muscle refuses to relax, creating knotted, tight muscles that are painful. Any muscle can have a spasm, but most muscles will loosen again on their own. When a muscle spasm continues, especially in a major muscle group like the lower back, it can be an extremely painful condition. Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA, offers muscle spasm treatment to give patients relief.

Muscle spasms can be caused by a variety of issues. There are some health and nerve conditions that may create muscles spasms, including spinal cord damage, epilepsy and cerebral palsy. Most commonly, muscle spasms are caused by overexertion and a lack of nutrients in the body. Dehydration, low electrolytes, mineral loss and muscle fatigue can all contribute to a muscle spasm.

Most muscle spasms will relax with rest and OTC pain medications. Stretching or relaxation techniques may help loosen the muscle and stop the constant contraction. When a muscle continues to contract, it may need medical attention to offer relief.

Lower Back Muscle Spasms

The lower back muscle group is a common area for muscle spasms. This large group of muscles could become tight from overwork or triggered as a reaction to a spinal condition. A lower back muscle spasm can be very painful and limits mobility, sometimes for days or weeks.

To relieve lower back pain, our team at Hanowell Spine Clinic offers muscle spasms treatment. There are a few options to help relax the muscles and relieve the tenderness caused by knotted muscles. We offer trigger point injections or steroid injections to relieve inflammation. Myofascial release techniques can also be used to loosen tightened muscles.

If you are suffering from muscle spasms, come see us at Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA. Our clinics offer muscle spasms treatment to stop the pain and improve your mobility.

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
