Muscle spasm: Muscle Spasm is an unexpected, sudden, abrupt involuntary contraction or over shortening of any single muscle or group of muscles. It occurs due to abrupt entry of calcium ion into the muscle. Muscle spasm is key factor responsible for chronic pain.
Inflammation: Inflammation is the tissue injury associated with the pain, fever, redness, swelling, and loss of function.
Muscle relaxants: Muscle relaxants are used in the symptomatic treatment of painful muscle spasm associated with musculoskeletal conditions. Muscle relaxants reduce muscle tone & stiffness and are used in the treatment of muscle spasm.
