What is a spasm?

A spasm is a brief, involuntary contractions of a muscle. They can be caused by a number of things, such as pain, stress, excitement, or trauma.

Spasms can be a nuisance, but they can also have serious consequences. For example, a spasm in the hip can cause a fracture, a spasm in the neck can cause a trap point and strangulation, and a spasm in the stomach can cause a bowel obstruction.

Fortunately, most spasms are self-limited and go away on their own.
