When muscles spasm involuntarily, become stiff, or contract, then it is known as muscle spasticity. This condition can result in mild to severe pain. Muscle spasticity can show symptoms and signs like muscle tightness, involuntary jerky movements, joint stiffness, exaggeration of reflexes, muscle spasms, unusual position, back pain, pain in affected joints and muscles, etc. If muscle spasticity occurs for a long time, then it can cause: • Inability to function normally • Pressure sores • Frozen joints • Difficulty to walk and move Muscle spasticity is not always bad. It can be beneficial for people who have a muscle movement disorder or very weak legs. The stiff muscles provide strength to such people to walk or stand. Such people focus on relieving their pain while maintaining the stiffness required for proper functioning.

UMuscle spasticity primarily takes place when nerve impulses or pathways that control the movement of muscles are injured or interrupted. This can be due to many ailments and conditions, such as:

  • Krabbe disease
  • Phenylketonuria
  • Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD)
  • Hereditary spastic paraplegias
  • Diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brain injury
  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury

Besides these, muscle spasticity can also be caused when you suddenly move or change your position. It can also be due to:

  • Tight clothing
  • Infection
  • Severe cold or heat
  • High humidity
  • Stress
  • Fatigue

If you do not know the cause of your muscle spasticity, then you should consult your doctor first before taking treatment medicine. Moreover, if you feel that your muscle spasticity has worsened and is taking place more frequently with considerable changes, then also you must consult your doctor..

Muscle spasticity must be treated effectively since it can affect your ability to carry out everyday tasks when it occurs regularly. Moreover, muscle spasms can lead to pressure sores on the skin and frozen joints if it’s not treated properly. You might notice that you are unable to move your knees, hips, ankles, elbows, wrists, and shoulders. This condition is treated as per its level, regularity, and cause. Muscle spasms can be treated by stretching exercises, massage, and physical therapy. You can do these exercises at your home with someone’s help. Sometimes, a splint or cast is used in order to ensure that your muscles do not become extremely tight. Apart from these, there are also medications that can be taken to treat this condition. These medicines include nerve blockers, sedatives, and muscle relaxants. You can buy these medicines on RxMeds. Sometimes, doctors recommend surgery to cut the nerve-muscle path or for tendon discharge when physical therapy and medications do not help in treating muscle spasticity..
