How We Help With Back Spasms

Have you ever experienced the excruciating pain of back spasms, feeling like your entire world has been put on hold? Back spasms are not only physically debilitating but can also have profound effects on your mental and emotional well-being, disrupting your ability to work, enjoy activities, and even perform daily tasks. What many people may not realize is that back spasms are often caused by spinal inflammation, and addressing the underlying issues with holistic chiropractic care can offer long-lasting relief without the need for drugs or surgery. With therapies like red light therapy (low-level laser therapy), home traction therapy, and myofascial therapy, chiropractic care provides a comprehensive approach to alleviating back spasms and helping you regain control of your life.

What Exactly Are Back Spasms

Back spasms are intense, involuntary contractions of the muscles in the back, often resulting in sharp, stabbing pain and restricted movement. They can be triggered by a variety of factors, including muscle strain, overuse, poor posture, whiplash injury from car accidents, and underlying spinal issues such as inflammation and misalignments.

Spinal inflammation, in particular around the spinal cord, can contribute to the occurrence of back spasms. When the spinal joints become inflamed due to injury, poor posture, or other underlying conditions, it can irritate the surrounding nerves and muscles, leading to muscle spasms and pain.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Back Spasms

Fortunately, chiropractic care at Advocate Wellness offers a non-invasive, drug-free solution to address the root causes of back spasms and provide relief. Through gentle spinal adjustments, we can realign the spine, alleviate pressure from inflammation on your nerves, and reduce inflammation in the affected areas. This not only helps alleviate acute pain from back spasms but also promotes long-term spinal health and prevents future episodes.

Therapies for Back Spasms

In addition to spinal adjustments, we also incorporate additional therapies to support your fastest healing process. Red light therapy (low-level laser therapy) utilizes specific wavelengths of red and infrared light to penetrate deep into nerves, joints, and injured tissues, stimulating cellular repair and reducing inflammation. This therapy can help accelerate the healing process, relieve pain, and promote relaxation in the muscles affected by back spasms.

Home traction therapy is another effective treatment option that can help relieve pressure on the spine and alleviate back spasms. By decompressing the spine, home traction therapy can gently stretch the spastic muscles, holding very gentle tension and allowing the body to slowly relax and let go of the spasm and begin to stretch. Home traction is effective for approximately 85% of patients and saves you thousands of dollars and hours of treatment. Additionally, it allows us to teach you a valuable skill and place equipment in your home, so if any issues pop up in the future you know what to do to help yourself. 

Myofascial therapy, which focuses on releasing tension and adhesions within the fascia, can also be beneficial for individuals experiencing back spasms. By addressing restrictions in the fascia, myofascial therapy can help improve mobility, alleviate pain, and reduce the risk of future spasms.
