Have you heard about how effective magnesium is in resolving muscle spasms? If you are suffering from back pain and you do not know about magnesium then it will be life saver for you! It has helped nearly every person I have suggested it to, and a few have even cancelled appointments with me because their pain was completely resolved (or enough to be tolerable).
Magnesium is a natural muscle relaxer and it also helps calm down the nervous system along with a slew of other benefits. There is a lot of physiology around what Magnesium does, but I will not bore you with the nitty gritty details.
The most important thing you need to do is that it affects the muscles directly allowing them to relax. Calcium, which is great for the bones, does the opposite and tightens the muscles up. If you are on calcium supplementation then most definitely you would benefit from magnesium. It really does wonders for back pain and spasms. In fact it helps for any area of the body that is in pain and spasms including the neck, legs and arms.
My favorite brand of magnesium is Cardiovascular research and if you click here you can order it directly from Amazon and discover how effective it is for yourself. Please let me know what kind of results you experience with its use. I love to hear about success stories!
I have found some instances where the Magnesium is not effective and it is almost always related to an adhesion to a nerve. This puts a lot of pressure on the nerve and it negatively affects how the nerve communications with the muscles.
The most common spot I have found nerve adhesions at the calf. It is right where the tibial nerve, which is a branch of the sciatic nerve, goes through the top of the calf muscle. When there are adhesions here it can contribute to those pesky calf cramps that plague you in the middle of the night. It can also make it difficult to balance since your ankle has difficulty adjusting uneven surfaces when you are walking.
No worries though… there is good news for this condition. Active Release Techniques (ART) is a top notch technique and it is ideal for resolving adhesions in muscles and there is specialized training just for nerve adhesions. There are some other techniques that are moderately effective; however, ART is fast and as long as the practitioner is trained and certified they experience a high success rate in just a few sessions.
