Marbella – On 8 February I had lower back spasms and the advice I received did not help. In this article, you will learn how to move normally within a few minutes without using medicines or tools. If my technique does not work then you know that the lower back spasms is most likely related to your nerves and you should seek medical attention.
I was desperately looking for a solution. I read a lot of articles but no well-intentioned advice and tips on how to get rid of lower back spasms worked.
This is not the first time that I have had lower back spasm. A few years ago I had enormous pain in my right knee. I ignored and walked with it for a few days. Later it turned out that I had a broken knee. As a result, I forced the muscles in my back and caused a lower back spasm. The fire department had to break open the roof to lift me out of my home.
Signs of upcoming lower back spasm
Your body gives clear signals that you are on your way to a lower back spasm. It starts with pain with standing up and struggling to stand up straight after a long period of sitting. Therefore, my advice, always listen to your body.
What do lower back spasms feel like?
The pain caused by lower back spasms cannot be expressed in words. I compare the pain with the Exorcist stairs scene where Linda Blair walked down the stairs on her fingers and feet, backward. Too painful to look at, that’s how it feels. It looks like your back is bent backward until it breaks.
How to treat lower back spasm and get rid of the pain instantly?
Now you will read how you can get rid of the pain and can function normally in 10 minutes. This is what I did and it works:
Step 1: The Wiper
I first started lying on my back with my knees up, against each other, and my feet as close to my butt as possible. I moved my knees from left to right like a car wiper. I repeated 30 times.
Step 2: Push-Up
Then I carefully lay down on my stomach and carefully pushed myself up making a push-up position while my lower body stayed flat on the bed. I kept this position for 15 seconds.
Step 3: The Prayer
Then I moved carefully in a praying position. I tried to stretch as much as possible so that you feel the tension in my lower back. I kept this position for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Repeat Step 2
Then I repeated the push-up posture of 15 seconds.
Step 5: Pressure
Then I calmly lay down on my stomach. Lifted my shirt up and gently pressed the area where it hurt for 30 seconds with widespread fingers distributing pressure throughout the entire zone the pain emerged.
Step 6: Massage
Then, at last, I made a fist and massaged with the back of my hand on the area where the pain came from. I made a counter-clockwise movement. I continued to massage until my back relaxed. You notice this, you get a feeling of relief.
Bye Bye Lower Back Spasms
To my own surprise, I noticed nothing of my lower back spasms. I could just walk to the toilet and move. I first took a long hot shower and it felt wonderful that warm water on my back.

- Repeat these exercises every 30 minutes on the first day but if you feel it coming do the exercise immediately to prevent spasm. Second day and the next 6 days every hour.
- Replace movements that you do with your back with other limbs like arms or go through your knees to lift something.
- Do not sit too long. If you sit, sit straight and make sure to support your back. When you stand up, lean your hands on your legs and climb with your hands and push yourself to a standing position.
