Muscle Spasms

Muscle spasms are the term used for involuntary contractions of muscles or a group of muscles.

Lower Back

Lower back muscle spasms are when muscles in the lower back experience sudden tightening or shaking, and they can cause severe chronic pain. Muscle spasms can occur from various events including, but not limited to, trauma, strain, sleep positioning, and overuse. Movements can be done incorrectly or too much that can cause a strain on your lower back muscles which can lead to muscle spasms. Then, any subsequent movements can induce pain.

Lower back pain comes second only to the cold and flu virus for when patients seek medical attention. Lower back pain is common, and there is a good chance that you will experience it at some point in your life. Lower back pain is not to be taken lightly, because the position of the lower back in the human body causes it to support majority of the bodies weight.

Cervical Muscle Spasm

The cervical portion of the spine is responsible for range of motion in the head and neck. Injury to the spine can induce muscle spasms in the cervical spine, and this is severe because the cervical spine provides bracing for components that connect the brain with the central nervous system.


Although rest is a suggested treatment for muscle spasms, there may be a deeper underlying cause for the condition that can only be treated by a physician. Dr. Puppala has proven methods and regimens that help to diminish the cause of muscle spasms at the source. This condition is not going to be completely healed overnight with some rest. Dr. Puppala can provide personal treatment plans that attack the source of the pain from different angles. This multidisciplinary approach is an effective way to achieve a long-term solution.
