What type of doctor can help stop muscle spasms?


Posted by Deb

Without warning I get a muscle spasm along either side of my spine (randomly) that feels as if it twists, releases for a second and twists again, on and on.  It produces a sick, not sharp, pain. The only relief comes from electrical stimulation and best with ultra sound stimulation.  I carry a portable Tins unit just in case. It feels deep within the muscle. No amount of massage or medication will relieve it.  Most times I don't know what brings it on but I do know that if I get very cold and tighten my back muscles, as soon as I start to warm up and my back relaxes, the spasm hits.  I am getting older and feel I need to find the solution.

Thank you Matt. I'll look into this.  I know I need to find the cause but I've not known who is the best place/doctor to find out.  Thanks Again.
Muscle spasms are no fun. But they should be treatable by finding the cause and addressing that. I would suggest checking out www.egoscue.com and uploading posture photos to the nearest clinic to you. A therapist will be able to evaulate your posture and situation and explain to you what is causing the spasms and how you can eliminate them for good.

Is this a joke?  I ask a question and I get jibberish?
