Symptoms and Causes of Muscle Spasms
How do you know if you’re experiencing muscle spasms? ‘Spasm’ is a word that describes the process of the muscle contracting. It’s entirely involuntary and often refuses to release regardless of what we do to make it stop. As well as pain, it can cause discomfort during simple tasks and general tightness even as you rest. Most people experience spasms in the foot, calf, back, or thigh (but it can occur elsewhere!).
What causes muscle spasms? There’s normally a deeper problem at work here whether this is dehydration, problematic nerves, poor stretching, deficiencies in vitamins/minerals, and even simple fatigue.
Anybody can experience muscle spasms, but it becomes a problem when the spasms occur more frequently than normal. When it starts to affect daily activities, we recommend intervention.
