Abstract

Our spine is like a bridge between our head and legs and they bear two thirds of our body weight. Our spine consists of 33 bones, called vertebras, including 23 moving vertebrae. Connective tissues, joints and discs connect these bones to each other. We also have strong muscles around the spine that enable movements and attach to each vertebra. A spasm is an involuntary tightening of muscle in your body. It often causes intense pain. This pain can last for minutes, hours, or days after the muscle relaxes and the spasm subsides. Spasms can happen in any part of your body where there’s muscle, including your neck. The ways for improving neck spasms are self-care treatments, alternative treatments and procedures, and Surgery.
