Back Spasms
sportpapa posted:
My daughter plays competitive basketball and lately she is complaining that she is experiencing back spasms followed by numbness in her back. Thoughts?

The numbness may suggest that there's some nerve issue but nobody can tell you over the internet. Seeing a doctor could be appropriate for a diagnostic. She may need to do some physiotherapy or massage therapy.
