Muscle Spasms

Muscle spasms can be painful and stop you in your tracks if they occur in a major muscle group. Lower back muscle spasms are a common cause of back pain and can be debilitating. Loosening and relaxing tight or spastic muscles help to stop the pain and restore mobility. Our pain specialists at Medici Medical Arts near Atlanta offer treatment plans for muscles spasms to give patients relief.

What Causes a Muscle Spasm?

When a muscle contracts and stays contracted, this is a muscle spasm. People of all ages can have a muscle spasm for a variety of reasons. There are some health conditions that cause severe muscle spasms. For the majority of people, most muscle spasms are brief episodes. Muscle spasms can be caused by:

  • Dehydration
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Insufficient stretching or warm up before exercise
  • Low electrolytes or minerals in the body
  • Overexertion
  • Irritation from other conditions, like a ruptured spinal disc

While any muscle can have a spasm, the lower back muscles are one of the groups commonly affected. When a lower back muscle spasm occurs, it can result in pain and limited mobility that may last for weeks.

Treatment for Lower Back Muscle Spasms

Reducing inflammation in the muscle and increasing blood flow can help relieve the pain caused by lower back muscle spasms. While a short period of rest with OTC anti-inflammatory medications can often relieve mild lower back spasms, more severe spasms may require medical treatment. Our team at Medici Medical Arts can determine the best treatment options for severe muscle spasms, including medication management, cortisone/steroid injections and physical therapy.

If you have severe muscle spasms that are causing intense pain or limiting your mobility, contact Medici Medical Arts today to schedule an appointment. We can determine the best treatment option to give you relief at our clinics near Atlanta.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
