Muscle spasm: the only connection between the rib cage and the hip are the muscles between. when pain started in one spot the muscle around that spot initiated spasm, to protect the body from the pain . the spasm will travel like a domino effect to other part of the body. the bad part is muscle spasm is painful.and that create more spasm,and that create a cycle. use heat pat.take NSAIDS, see your doctor
