Muscle Cramps: Tips For Relief

Mar 1, 2008
Whenever we exert ourselves, we notice cramps or weakness in our legs. This is because the muscles in those areas tighten leading to pain and discomfort. In such cases, it is best to take a muscle relaxant as they help relax those muscles. They come in pill form and at times are available as an ointment. The muscle relaxing abilities of these muscle relaxants is due to the inhibition of the central polysynaptic neuronal, which nerve cells, in our body are.

While playing tennis, basketball after a long gap, what happens is our muscles are all tight, instead of loosening them we get right into the game. Because of no warning, it comes as a shock to our body and the muscles don't have time to relax, stretch and then get into the game. The main reason why fitness trainers in gym and otherwise advise us to stretch, warm up before work out or practice. This gives our body the breathing it requires and prepares it for the upcoming workout.

Muscle relaxants are prescribed as treatment for acute lower back pain in order to help the patient get relieved from pain and make it easy for them to move around. The spasm they feel in their back will be sharp and enough to leave them paralyzed, and unable to move a few inches. With the help of these relaxants, the muscle spasm gets limited and improving range of motion will get better which allows the patient to go in for some form of exercise or therapy.

For people who have spent their life sitting in one place, doing a desk job, they too might face these leg pains, and back aches. They fall into the other extreme category. Those who did not do any exercise or get much of activity during the prime of their life. Meaning, their body is not used to any movement at all. And if they go to the beach or park for a walk, they might have difficulty beyond a couple of minutes.

If by using the muscle relaxant, they obtain some percentage of relief, they can then visit their doctor for further advice. There are some who are unable to bear the pain or are tired of taking treatment and steroids, when they go in for corrective surgery. However, this has to be the last resort and adopted only when all else has failed.
