Re: Is there really "no cause" back spasms/pain?
I would suffer from back spasms occasionally and whilst I would get a sympathetic nod from friends, I sensed they just didnt understand how discomforting they were. These spasms can just happen of their own accord but largely, there will be underlying issues causing them. If you're not over exerting them, then more likely you are wearing unsupportive shoes or sleeping on cheap mattresses. If you're doing both, then 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, there is subtle pressures being exerted on your back without you realising, which then manifests itself in the occasional spasm. Changing up is well worth it. I was always wearing converse and other tennis shoes with their flat soles and they offered no arch support. Having switched footwear, I've noticed a definite improvement in my back condition. Hope this helps x
