5 Winning Way to Reduce Muscle Tightness and Pain.

5 Winning Way to Reduce Muscle Tightness and Pain.
5 winning way to reduce muscle tightness and pain.

Drinking plenty of water, often considered to be between eight to ten glasses per day, provides many benefits such as preventing and relieving tight and cramped muscles related to dehydration. However, tight muscles can have a variety of causes and might require dietary and lifestyle changes to adequately deal with.
Minerals, electrolytes and water are all needed for normal muscle tone and function. Calcium is especially important for contraction, magnesium is needed for relaxation, and water for firmness and electrolyte exchange.

Athletes commonly have tight muscles and also people who are under stress. Tight muscles lose their flexibility and might become painful to the touch. Mineral deficiency, especially magnesium, can lead to muscle tightness, twitching and maybe even restless leg syndrome at night. A lack of electrolytes, such as sodium, interferes with nerve conductance to muscle fibers and results in tightness and spasms. Poor blood circulation hampers the minerals, electrolytes and water getting to muscles, which can cause symptoms.

Most of us drink a lot of beverages but it has either caffeine or alcohol which can both lead to mild dehydration.

5 winning ways to reduce muscle tightness and pain.

1. Drink plenty of water (recommended about 8 glasses a day)

2. Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake. (cut down tea, coffee, aerated drinks, alcohol). Alcohol and caffeine cause mild dehydration which can lead to muscle tightness.

3. Foods that reduce muscle tightness and cramps
Foods rich in magnesium such as bananas can help. Use sea salt with food as the sodium in it helps relax muscle cramps. Potassium rich foods such as avocados, potatoes, bananas, broccoli, orange juice, soybeans, apricots, and raisins can decrease tightness and cramps. Milk has a large amount of vitamin d, which will reduce your chances of cramping. Have one to two glasses of milk each day to help you prevent cramps. As a bonus, all the calcium in whole milk will also contribute to healthy bone growth.

4. Stretching exercises.
Stretching exercises will help release chemical substances called endorphins that help reduce pain. Also it helps elongate tight and contracted muscle fibers.
These are links to some simple stretches but check with your doctor if it is appropriate for you to do the same.

5. Massage to relieve pain from tight muscles.
Deep tissue massage, trigger point release and myofascial release are some of the techniques used by physiotherapists trained in manual therapy to help loosen painful knots in muscles and relax the same.

If pain and tightness persists consult a health practitioner for evaluation and treatment.

Sir/Madam I have a severe leg pain from so many days. What is the solution of that? Please help me.
Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do stretching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief see a physiotherapist in person as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

Hello lybrate-user, your son might have twisted his lower leg area for which he is having pain. Because of bad posture during sleep, it might have occured. Apply warm water under the area and if the pain persists for more than a week then consult a paediatrician soon.

Shoulder pain may be due to sciatica also. Get your self tested. Bending forward may increase your problem. Homoeopathy has effective treatment for your problem without adverse effects. Take rhustox 200 ---once daily in the morning for 5 days.

U need to improve your foot wear along with it you need to avoid running or jogging so to avoid unnecessary load on the shin. If all this doesn't work you can get a plaster applied for the rest. Also start with vitamin d supplementation along with calcium. Apply ice packs locally. Hope this helps you. For further assistance can contact.

Towel Hamstring Stretch Lie on the back, supporting the thigh with the hand or with a towel wrapped around it.. Slowly straighten the knee until a stretch is felt in the back of the thigh, trying to get the bottom of the foot to face the ceiling, one leg at a time. Hold the position initially for 10 seconds, and gradually work up to 20 to 30 seconds. Seated Hamstring Stretch While sitting at the edge of a chair, straighten one leg in front of the body with the heel on the floor. Then, sit up straight and try pushing the navel towards the thigh without leaning the trunk of the body forwards. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds Repeat 3 times for each leg.

Dear lybrate-user, First of all since she is diabetic, she would have shoulder problem. 90% of the patients with diabetes have the shoulder stiffness problem. First and foremost she needs to continue the medicines after her sugar tests with the opinion of her Diabetalogist. Further she is advised to meet a Physiotherapist for a course of Physiotherapy and shoulder exercise regimen. Please give her hot water fomentation twice daily and mandatory before going to sleep at night. Hope this should give some ease for the said problem. Wishing your mother a good health and Speedy recovery.

Too much pain in my right arm. Even I dont pull out any haveay material. And the wrist also paining countinusly. What I do sir?

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
If you have a history of cervical problem, it may b related to that. For that you have to consult some good physiotherapist. Or there can b a muscular problem. For that take hot fermentation for 5 to 10 mins. Then take a small towel roll in your right hand and press it, hold it for 10 sec. Repeat this for 10 or 15 reps. It will hurt fot couple of days bcos your muscles r not habitual. If it hurts a lot take hot and cold fermentation 1 min each, 5 reps. Thank you.

You may have got muscle strain. Rest your shoulder for a few days. Avoid lifting any weights or exerting too much. Apply cold pack for 10-15 mins everyday. If you don't feel better in 5 days then get an xray done and show an orthopedic surgeon.

Hi. Is there any history of injury or hurt to the area? any underlying medical condition? the pain in legs can be because of - muscle cramps (due to tiredness or dehydration), shin splints (doing activity over and over on hard surfaces can bring this on. You may also be more likely to get shin splints if you have flat feet or your feet turn outward. Rest your legs to feel better. Ice helps), tendinitis (you can get it from overworking the calf muscle or climbing the stairs, apply ice to get some relief), sprains (do rest, ice, compression & elevation). Other causes are varicose veins, arterial disease, sciatica, diabetic neuropathy. Medication: meantime, take homoeopathic medicines - arnica 200 and rhus tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply schwabe's topi-arnica and topi mp gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. And wrap crepe bandage over it. Get back to me thereafter.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have got multiple problems for which you actually need to see a general physician. For your spine pain, - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc in case you are having back pain. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
