Areas of the body that are most often affected by muscle spasm are the neck, arms, legs, and back. However, any muscle in the body can experience a spasm. The first symptom in muscle spasm is pain followed by swelling and soreness, which can take minutes or up to days to dissipate.
The sufferer is often not able to move after the pain for a period of time. Muscle spasms usually occur as a result of fatigued muscles, such as occurring when performing activities requiring extreme exertion. Dehydration, low oxygen supply, muscle injury, or electrolyte imbalances are some other reasons for muscle spasm.
Massage therapy for muscle tension and spasms will help ease neck and back pain. It will help relieve all kinds of stiffness, pain, aches, inflammation, tension, and muscle spasms - all while increasing circulation and warming muscles and other soft tissues.
