At this time, a person wakes up from sudden pain. Sounds familiar? Why do cramps occur?
Cramps are a sudden involuntary muscle contraction. During cramps, blood cannot distribute properly in the muscle as it does during normal muscle contraction, leading to unbearable pain.
How can you stop cramps? Most cramps can be relieved by stretching the muscles. Leg cramps can be eased by simply walking. Another method is to pull the toe towards yourself without bending the leg. If you've been for a run or a long walk, massage your legs afterward. This helps to disperse the lactic acid formed during movement in the muscles. Also, to prevent cramps, it's recommended to stretch before exercising and drink enough water to maintain the body's normal hydration level.
How to Eliminate the Cause of Cramps?
