Causes of Back Spasms




Dr. Derek Papp, Sports Medicine Physician with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains a back spasm is probably related to some kind of irritation of one of the nerve roots, or maybe inside of the spine itself.

He also says it is very common in soccer players and athletes, because they have a lot of pounding activity, they are moving a lot, they are staying at different hotels and traveling, and the time spent on a bus adds up.
