Thank you for your question. Your sedentary lifestyle may be directly related to your back muscle spasms. It is important that you have these spasms evaluated by your doctor to be certain that these spasms are not being caused by a problem with the innervation of these muscles. You may need to undergo physiotherapy and practice gentle stretching techniques which can assist in treating your current symptoms and preventing them from recurring in the future. Please see your doctor.
