5 Winning Ways to Stop those Nasty Muscle Cramps
5 Ways to Stop Muscle Cramps

Muscle cramps are feared and loathed by all of us alike – they hurt, they slow us down and they just give us a helpless feeling! The most common cause of these cramps is premature fatigue which affects the reflex control of muscles. Here are 5 ways guaranteed to beat these troublesome muscle cramps:

1. Take rest
The most easy and sure-shot way to kill a muscle cramp is to take rest. Just rest your body, be at one place and the cramp will not last more than 3-4 minutes. Moving around will only cause the pain to be aggravated and eventually affect other areas as well.

2. Consume solutions rich in salt
Whenever you encounter a troublesome cramp, the first instinct is to reach for water. However, studies have shown that salt solutions are far more effective in countering cramps as compared to plain water. You can have pickle juice and similar drinks which have a high salt concentration.

3. Be physically active
The most common reason for muscle cramps is over-straining of the body. If you are planning to indulge in an extremely intensive physical activity, make sure to train well in advance. Also, keep the duration and intensity of the training at a similar level to that of the actual activity.

4. Keep your body hydrated
Dehydration is the root of a number of troublesome conditions, muscle cramps being one of them. Make sure to always carry a water bottle with you and drink a minimum of 7-8 glasses of water on a daily basis.

5. Indulge in light passive muscle stretching
When faced with a muscle cramp, in addition to resting, try and gently stretch the affected muscle. This continuous and light passive stretching lets the brain know that it can relax the muscle and help it return to normal.

Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.

You should refrain from contact sports for a minimum of 4 - 6 months for the ligaments to heal. Prior to starting playing again you need to do a course of knee muscle strengthening exercises.

I am 21 years old female. I have problem of back pain from last 2 weeks. I used relief gel (move). But no effect.

I am 21 years old female. I have problem of back pain from last 2 weeks. I used relief gel (move). But no effect.
Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -Apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --While sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -Find a mattress with back support. A good mattress should provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. Medium-firm mattresses usually provide more back pain relief than firm mattresses. -Do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -Avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -Good posture plays a key role in your spine health, helping to prevent additional back and neck pain and even injuries to spinal structures. Try to be aware of your posture and make good posture part of your normal routine. -head up, shoulders back, rear tucked under -Stand and walk with correct posture -Sit with support -Lift and carry carefully -And finally, keep moving:-Maintaining a static position for too long—more than twenty or thirty minutes at a time—is hard on the back. Prolonged static posture can slowly deplete elasticity from the tissues. By simply moving—be it a change of position, a stretch, or a short walk—the tissue elasticity needed to protect your joints can be restored and the associated discomfort reduced. -Stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -Some Physiotherapy treatment like IFT current can give you relief.

Hi, apply rumalaya liniment and massage for 10 mins and give hot water fomentation. This can be done thrice daily. If the pain is severe, take tab. Yogaraja guggulu 1-1-1 with hot water after food. Use soft medium sized pillow while sleeping. Perform neck exercises for 10 mins in the morning and evening regularly.

I am 32 years old male having pain in my heel both feet. The pain would rise when I get up from my sleep that would make me difficult to walk. Eventually it would subside after an hour or 2. But the pain remains if you press your heel with your hands. At this point it is bearable. Also I have a pain in my lower back. Just 2 of the bones in the lower back. I am not sure which specialist should I consult because my friends say either visit a medicine Dr. Some has suggested an Orthopaedic and others a neurologist. Please suggest.

Hello lybrate user, - why it is coming is you know its your working pattern. - you need to do some physical exercise or yogasanas to relax your muscles - ling time sitting may lead to compression of intervertebral discs hence you need to take a break every two hrs of work and have a light walk. - apply ksheerabala taila to the back before bath which strengthen your joints and muscles thank you.

Dear lybrate-user. The crackling of sound may be of various reasons. Some of the reasons may be related with biomechanical issues or with dereased synovial space. If the crackling sound does not cause any pain or discomfort, then you should not be worried. Its natural and absolutely normal.

1. Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. 2. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. 3. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. 4. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Osteoarthritis

MBBS
General Physician, Cuttack
Osteoarthritis a painful condition and one of the commonest causes of physical disability among the aged, mostly affecting the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and weight bearing joints like knee, hip and ankle
It's usually the result of years of wear and tear on joints and occurs when cartilage, the tissue cushioning ends of the bones within the joints disintegrates and wears away. This causes friction among bones, leading to pain, swelling deformity and loss of motion in the joint.
While osteoarthritis mostly affect women, more so after menopause, men also can get affect after 60's. The knees are among the joints most frequently damaged by osteoarthritis and can even lead to disability. Osteoarthritis of the hip on the other hand severely impairs the mobility.
Some common symptoms of osteoarthritis are: joint pain, swelling or tenderness in one or more joints, stiffness after getting out of bed, or sitting for a long time, unable to walk even a few yard and a crunching feeling or sound of bone rubbing on bone. Osteoarthritis of weight bearing joints progress at much faster rate in presence of osteoporosis (soft and weak bone), and can make a patient crippled easily, if proper timely measures are not taken
Diagnosis involves a medley of assessments including medical history, physical examination, x rays and lab tests a patient's daily activities and mental state are important factors too which doctors consider, while relating to the symptoms of osteoarthritis affecting the patient's daily life.
In terms of treatment options, exercise is one of the best tools. It inculcates a positive outlook, manages pain better, and helps in watching one's weight. For temporary pain relief, patients can try warm towels, hot packs, a warm bath or shower. Nsaids or non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs also help reduce pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis.
Lastly for end stage osteoarthritis and when other modalities of treatment have been tried and failed surgery like" joint replacement" can give new leash of life to the patient.

Avoid lifting heavy weights. When bending down to lift something from below, bend your knees first and then lift the object. You can take homoeopathic medicines for the back pain.
