Our expert says:
It is imperative that your mother consults an orthopaedic surgeon and a possible cervical spine x-ray to determine if there is nerve compression causing the severe spasms. She should also consult a physiotherapist to treat her muscle spasm. This can be done with massage, ultrasound therapy and exercises.
If she can tolerate medication, she can ask her doctor for a script for Robaxan 750mg, as well as anti-inflammatory medication.
