Common Causes of Muscle Cramps: Muscles Overstain, Inadequate Blood Supply and Decrease of Muscle Mass
A muscle cramp is a sudden and involuntary contraction of muscles. Muscle cramps can cause severe pain that lasts for seconds or minutes. They are felt when there is overuse of the muscle, dehydration, mineral depletion, inadequate blood supply caused by narrowing or blockage in blood vessels, as well as nerve compression. Long periods of exercise or physical labour, wearing high heels for a day and staying at one fixed position for too long can lead to muscle cramps. The loss of muscle mass or lack of muscle strength can leader to the remaining muscles getting easily overstressed and lead to frequent muscle cramps. This is particularly so in older people or people after 30s which is the age where you start to lose muscle mass and function.
How to Relieve: Replenish Fluid, Relax Muscle, Circulate Blood Flow
Most muscle cramps develop in the leg muscles, particularly in the calf and thigh (quadriceps and hamstrings). By ensuring adequate fluid intake everyday, it can keep muscle cells relaxed and less irritable. Keeping warm at night during sleep and daily stretching of muscles coupled with heat therapy can reduce muscle fatigues, promote muscle relaxation, blood flow and sufficient oxygen circulation in the body.
