A back spasm is when a muscle uncontrollably tightens due to weakness, muscle pain, strain, or overuse.
You can eliminate back spasm pain by using a heated pad and leaving it on the affected area for up to 15 minutes. After that use an ice pack for maximum 20 minutes. If inflammatory conditions are the reason for your back spasms, use ice over heat.
Gentle stretching can also help relieve the pain from back spasm. Deep breathing helps as well. When a spasm begins, the natural tendency of the muscles is to tighten up. Inhale deeply through your nose and then exhale to relax your muscles.
In addition, you can use True Back which has thirty suspension points molded into the center rails that support your body weight and create pressure on the muscles which are located on each side of the spine. The pressure enables the muscles to relax. Use True Back to relax your muscles and prevent or reduce back spasms. The traction device is the best tool for the treatment of back muscle pain.
