Painful Muscle Spasms? You Could Be Suffering from a Pinched Nerve
Painful muscle spasms can be so debilitating that you end up flat on your back, unable to move.
Because these spasms can impact your life to such a startling degree, it’s important to find the cause of the spasms. Zeroing in on the root cause will give you the information you need to find the best form of treatment.
In a lot of cases, spasms are caused by pinched nerves. What causes pinched nerves? Can your Frisco chiropractor provide a solution to your pain?
What Causes Pinched Nerves? Do They Really Cause Muscle Spasms?
Pinched nerves occur when something impinges on any one of the numerous nerves of the spine. Impingement can be caused by:
- Disc degeneration
- Bone spurs
- Repetitive motion
- Herniated/ruptured discs
When anything touches a nerve, the immediate response is pain. As the nerve sends out signals, the muscles respond by tightening or spasming. The pain from the spasm can be brief and sharp, or it can be throbbing and so intense that you can’t move.
In addition to muscle spasms, a pinched nerve can contribute to a host of other symptoms as well, including the following.
- Pins and needles sensation
- Muscle weakness
