Muscle spasms can happen in almost any muscle group, even a twitching eyelid, but the most common and most painful cramps and spasms usually affect the calves, thighs, foot, or part of the back and spine. Our patients describe severe pain and muscle tightness that restrict their normal range of motion in that part of their body.
If you’re experiencing sudden and unexpected muscle spasms or frequent cramps, the affected muscle or muscles themselves probably aren’t the root of the problem. There’s often another cause in your overall musculoskeletal health that’s stimulating low-grade muscle contractions. When spasms occur, the affected muscle feels like the culprit. In reality, however, the muscle itself is inflamed and unable to relax into a neutral position.
Here are a few of the most common reasons why our patients at Injury Centers of Brevard experience muscle spasm symptoms (but there can also be other causes):
- Prolonged sitting
- Poor posture while sitting, standing, or moving
- Psychological tension or stress
- Incorrect form while stretching or exercising
- Dehydration or overheating leading to muscle fatigue
- Vitamin and mineral deficiencies
- Neurological problems
- General muscle fatigue in the affected muscle or related muscles
Physical therapy techniques can effectively improve blood flow through the muscles to supply the oxygen needed to recover from strain and fatigue. At Injury Centers of Brevard, physical therapy can include joint mobilization, ultrasound, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching (PNF stretching), and posture or muscular retraining. No two bodies are the same, so our licensed physical therapists will work with you to develop a mix of treatments for the best personal results possible.
As the pain and frequency of spasms subside, we’ll also share long-term maintenance and prevention tips to help you avoid dehydration and mineral deficiencies in your diet, exercise safely, and move with correct posture.
