Back spasms are a very common condition and in most cases are not a severe form of back pain. Although if you have ever experienced a back spasm you would beg to differ I’m sure. Back spasms are categorized by sudden, painful back pain, which typically relieves itself within a few minutes or hours and are caused by involuntary muscle contractions. They oftentimes occur in the lower back and inflammation of the muscles and nerves in the back can contribute to back spasms.
A majority of back spasms are due to inflammation of the muscles and nerves, and other conditions such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis can contribute to back spasms. While again most back spasms are not severe, some people do experience debilitating back spasms which can send them on a trip to the emergency room. If you experience back spasms, there are natural and effective back spasm treatments.
Heat therapy is an effective back spasm treatment. But not just any type of heat. Far infrared heat, unlike conventional electric heating pads, delivers deep penetrating heat deep into the muscle tissues and bones, sending healing Far infrared waves to relax tight and stiff muscles. Far infrared heat is not only good for relieving back spasms, but it also delivers many other healing benefits such as weight loss, blood clot reduction, fights infections and many more.

Treating inflammation in the body is key to relieving and preventing backs spasms. The most common anti inflammatory drugs include prescription pain killers and over the counter non-steroidal anti- inflammatory drugs such as Advil and Aleve. While these common drugs typically work, they come with a ton of negative side effects so we always recommend taking natural supplements before resorting to conventional pain relievers.
