Cramps are painful spasms in a muscle and are often caused by overuse, dehydration, or nutritional deficiencies. The techniques listed below detail some methods for treating cramped muscles.
Leg cramps, sometimes called “Charley horses,” are a common ailment, especially for pregnant women, the elderly, and people who engage in sports. A sudden contraction, usually of the calf muscles, causes sharp pain that can last anywhere from a few seconds to 10 minutes. While leg cramps can be prevented, you can relieve an acute leg cramp with prompt movement and massage.
If during exercise or fast walking you get muscle cramps, you probably didn’t allow your body the best hydration, which is necessary for the transfer of electrolytes (such as sodium and magnesium) in the cells of the body. Juice made from 4 different vegetables can help you with this problem. Electrolytes such as magnesium, sodium and calcium prevent muscle cramps. A good relaxant for cramped muscles can be vegetable juice in which the main role is played by carrots, cucumber and broccoli.
A drink against muscle cramps:
- 2 carrots
- 1 celery
- 1 cucumber
- A small broccoli leaf.
