If you are experiencing multiple spasms each week it can leave you in extreme pain, cause inflammation, and limit your mobility. They can occur in any muscle in your body but typically affect the calf, thigh, foot, and back. Muscle spasms occur due to inflammation when a muscle is overstretched or torn. It starts off as a muscle strain, but if left unseen for too long it may also cause severe low back pain. It is vital to seek treatment in the early stages in order to avoid painful muscle knots.
Muscle spasms can vary in intensity from just a mild twitch to unendurable pain. They leave your muscles feeling tight and can cause extreme discomfort. Most spasms can happen for just a few seconds to 15 minutes or longer. They may even reoccur multiple times before going away.
