Management of muscle spasm

Management of muscle spasm

There’s no pill or injection that instantly relieves muscle spasms. But there are things you can do to try and stop muscle cramps fast: Stretch the affected area. Massage the affected area with your hands or a massage roller. Stand up and walk around. Apply heat or ice. Take over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If you have severe or frequent muscle spasms, a healthcare provider may prescribe muscle relaxers to help ease your symptoms. Muscle relaxers can cause drowsiness, dizziness and nausea. Because of these side effects, this medication may not be a long-term solution. Talk to your healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of muscle relaxers.
