In brief: Many reasons

To have spasm in general means the muscles this means the muscle irritated it? The irritation could come from the muscle itself or from the nerve feeding that muscle.
The cause for the first one, injury to the muscles, lack of fitness, overwork those muscles. Nerve injury, if the nerve to muscles is injured, that leads to the same thing.
