Chronic muscle spasms can be painful and interrupt your life. There are several causes of chronic muscle spasms you need to be aware of, and several ways in which your chiropractor can help you find relief. Here is what you need to know about muscle spasms and how chiropractic care can help to reduce the severity and frequency of your muscle spasms.


What Causes Muscle Spasms and Cramps

There are several things that can contribute to the development of muscle spasms. They include:

  • Pinched & Irritated nerves
  • Improper sitting/standing
  • Dehydration
  • Mineral or vitamin deficiency
  • Inflammation

The Symptoms of Muscle Spasm

Sometime muscles spasm can be sudden and very painful. But most of the muscles spasm we see is chronic and people are not always aware it is there. It is involuntary and "just relaxing" will not make it go away. You will notice these symptoms:

  • pain
  • soreness
  • tightness
  • fatigue
  • trigger points

How We Can Help

When you receive regular adjustments it can go a long way toward helping you to avoid tightness in your muscles that lead to spasms. When you are adjusted it relieves irritation on the nerves that control the muscles. When the nerves are less irritated the muscles will naturally relax.

We can also give lifestyle and nutritional advice to help put an end to chronic spasms.. If you are dehydrated, then you may have an electrolyte imbalance that is causing your cramping. Drinking more water and making some changes to your diet can help restore balance and reduce the number or spasms you are experiencing as well.

Remember, it is not normal to experience muscle spasms frequently. If you do, then it's likely you have an underlying problem that needs to be found and addressed. You don't have to just suffer from the pain and discomfort of muscle spasms, we are here to help.
