BACK SPASMS!

Have you ever picked up your child off the ground and you get a wrenching pain in your back?  Lifted a barbell off the ground and felt a painful “tweak”?  Back spasms can happen after lifting really heavy things or during the most mundane task.  This post will not dive deep into why these spasms happen, because there are several different reasons why and what may have led up to it; it will discuss what to do immediately after you get a back spasm to help alleviate the pain at that moment. This video and supporting article comes to us courtesy of Tabata Times, you can see the full article here

“If your back is spasming, you can help your back muscles elongate and relax by lying in the following position for ~15-20 minutes: Place an ab mat under your lower back with the thicker end toward your lower spine and another ab mat underneath your head. Then elevate your legs on a chair or a box until they are approximately 90 degrees. Your back muscles are tightening up during a spasm, so the goal here is to combat that by lengthening them in a resting position as much as possible.”
