Seeking help for coping with lower back spasms


[Be...]

Recommended Posts

Is there anything I can take for muscle spasms? I know valerian may help, but there are so many negative experiences in here. Any tips are welcome.

Just recovering from this and seeing a chiropractor helped greatly. She broke the spasm by putting needles in my back, it was painful but having the spasm nonstop for 3 days was worse. I felt the spasm break as she needled through it. I’m going again next week for a follow up but I feel so much better already. I also apply the hot/cold remedy and that also helps but the chiro was the magic bullet for me.

My PT (physical therapist) helped me. After trigger point massage, she used a TENS unit. I subsequently purchased one through Amazon. That plus heat on the spasming muscles helped a lot.

 

imo muscle spasms do not respond to supplements. At least mine didn't. "Direct action" was necessary!
