HOW CAN I PREVENT MUSCLE SPASMS?
Muscle spasms are a problem that can be debilitating and severely impact your daily life. When they get to the point where they’re widespread, chronic, and the pain is impacting your normal day, it’s time to see a specialist in pain management. Clearway Pain Solutions provides pain management services for muscle spasms throughout Alabama, Florida, Delaware, and Maryland.
WHAT COULD BE CAUSING MY MUSCLE SPASMS?
Muscle spasms mean that one or more of your muscles are contracting involuntarily. If you’re suffering from chronic and widespread muscle spasms, it’s likely that there’s a skeletal problem. You may also be experiencing this kind of muscle spasms if your sciatic nerve is pinched, you have scoliosis, or are struggling with a herniated disc.
FINDING THE CAUSE OF MUSCLE SPASMS
The most crucial thing one of our Board Certified Physicians can do is to figure out the root cause of your muscle spasms. You’ll be asked many questions about the history of your muscle spasms. Try to think about when it first started, when you have flare-ups, what the pain feels like, and if you’ve had an injury to that area before. Your medical history and answers to these questions can help doctors diagnose you.
There are also various diagnostic tests that will be performed. A physical examination will be performed to see if anything is visible on the exterior. It’s likely that x-rays and MRIs will be done to see what’s going on with your bones and muscles. There may be other tests done during your diagnostic consultations to get to the source of your pain.
TREATMENT FOR MUSCLE SPASMS
Treatment will depend on what is found to be the underlying condition. Our physicians and physical therapists will come up with a personalized treatment plan that’s specific to your condition. There’s no reason you have to live with the pain you’re feeling. Clearway will help you manage the pain and keep the underlying condition from getting worse. It’s important to keep your muscle spasms under control so you can live your life.
IS IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO PREVENT MUSCLE SPASMS?
Since muscle spasms usually come from injury, it’s important to avoid any injury to your spine, if possible. Keeping up good posture throughout the day and making sure to exercise can help prevent muscle spasms. It’s also important to make sure you’re moving throughout the day, but that you also don’t overexert yourself when you’re working out.
If you start feeling pain, it’s also important that you don’t wait to get treatment. Conditions like this can get worse if you let them go. The pain is usually overbearing and patients don’t hesitate to come in. However, make sure that you’re getting the help you need, the instant you start feeling pain. You don’t want to end up immobile because of this.
