Brief Answer:
a muscle relaxant helps to reduce any spasm in the muscles in the back

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is a muscle relaxant.

Muscle spasm can contribute to back pain so the use of a muscle relaxant would help to reduce the tension in the muscles.

Spasm can occur around any bones that are giving problems or as a result of restricted movements in certain directions.

This is the reason that a muscle relaxant can be used for back pain. It is usually combined with a pain killer in most cases.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

I am 34 years old and a mother of two. I have constant pain in my left hand and often get pain in above my breast or in the chest. Sometimes I feel pain in my back and some uneasiness in my face. I got ECG done and my physician says it is normal. This happens very often and the pain subsides in few minutes and happens again. Generally, I get a burp or release gas oftern when I experience the pain. Please let me know, if this is any gastric related or any other tests that I will have to get done to confirm any cardiac related problems.
