Do you suffer from muscle spasms in your back?

There are many muscles around the spine. These can be strained, torn or just become in spasm trying to protect the spine. Trigger points can develop in muscles in the form of a spasm. These are specific tender spots that develop that give rise to pain and can also cause pain in other areas of the body.

Physiotherapy treatment can work directly on these muscles to release the trigger points and muscle spasm. Exercises can be set to strengthen weak muscles and increase flexibility of tight muscles to prevent the spasm from returning. Underlying joints in the spine may be stiff contributing to the problem and physiotherapy treatments can work directly on these stiff joints. Acupuncture and taping are also useful treatments.

Clinical Pilates is a safe effective form of exercise to help this condition
