Why do dialysis patients have back spasms?

We know dialysis is taken to replace damaged kidneys to filter blood. Although this treatment can prolong dialysis patients’ life expectancy, it is unable to be as effective as healthy kidneys. Generally, patients may have spasms in upper limb, back, legs and some other regions during mid-late dialysis, and their back spasms is more likely to be due to several disorders.

- Too fast or too much dehydration

- Low blood pressure or low blood volume

- The usage of low-sodium dialysis solution

- Peripheral neuropathy caused by deposits of waste products and toxins

All of these disorders happen commonly with the beginning of kidney dialysis, both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

How to control back spasms for dialysis patients?

According to the above causes, patients should take some corresponding managements to control their problems.

First of all, they should regulate their dialysis treatment to be suitable for their own condition. In order to achieve this goal, patients should determine their dry weight, the concentration of their dialysis solution, and the amount of fluid to filter. These can help patients to live easily with dialysis.

To ease these dialysis patients’ back spasms, they can try some remedies such as Hot Compress Therapy, Medicated Bath and Massage to alleviate this problem after finishing dialysis treatment.

Lastly, if patients still have urine, they can try some therapies to save their kidneys and get rid of dialysis.
