Muscle Pain and Spasm - Causes and Treatment Options

Muscle Pain, Spasm and Cramps

Osteopaths will often see patients in pain that have a muscle spam. Most muscle spasms and muscle cramps are involuntary contractions of a muscle. This spasm is controlled by the brain (central nervous system).

The mechanismn is to provide the joints of the body with protection of overuse. We don’t use our bodies as we should for this mechanism to work as it should. The kind of muscle spasmn we treat are serious muscle spasm. These spasmn that don't release on their own and will need manual therapy to help relax and lengthen the shortened muscles. Spasms and cramps can be mild or extremely painful. Cramps can involve part of a muscle or all the muscles in a group.
