Muscle Spasms And Pain

Muscle spasms and pain are associated with traumatic injuries and many chronic debilitating disorders such as multiple sclerosis. Spasms are caused by hyperex-citable neurons stimulated by cerebral neurons or from lack of inhibition of the stimulus in the spinal cord or at the skeletal muscles.

Muscle relaxants are used to treats muscle spasms. There are two groups of muscle relaxants: centrally acting and peripherally acting. Centrally acting muscle relaxants depress neuron activity in the spinal cord or in the brain. They are used to treat acute spasms from muscle trauma, but are less effective for treating spasms caused by chronic neurological disorders.
