In brief: Depends on the cause
Spasms can occur from an old stroke or spinal cord injury, but sometimes they an happen due to fatigue or excess work.
Fibromyalgia causes spasm. How you treat really depends on the cause.I.E. Botox for severe spasms like in a stroke or spinal injury or drugs like Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine hcl) for less severe causes. Fibromyalgia is complex and is a topic on it's own.
