A really awful experience is to have a muscle cramp. Unless you have it you would not know. Hopefully you will not have the opportunity after reading this. The muscle pains are very common and give you a sudden irresistible pain which calms down very fast and vanishes. Over here you will be able to learn about little prevention you can take even while at home to stop yourself from experiencing a muscle cramp.
After you have cramp you can rub the place and help it to loosen up. The rub can be in a form of a massage which will help the contracted muscles to relax. We can also apply a bit of hot water over the cramped muscles which help in reducing the cramp pain and the muscle starts relaxing. Just when you experience a cramp then you can use a bit of stretching to help the muscles relax. For example when you have a cramp in your calf you can try stretching your toes and hold it with your hands. This brings out the muscle from its toned condition as the pull comes from the opposite direction. A cold bag of ice can be applied over the cramped area until it gets heated up then with the application of a heat bag we can again help the muscle regain the original blood circulation.
To avoid your body from suffering any cramps the diet of yours must contain enough calcium and potassium. These provide the necessary electrolytes in the body. The body needs a balanced electrolyte concentration in the body. Even dehydration may lead to muscle so enough water all over the day will help you avoid dehydration and obviously muscle cramp.
