What is a Muscle Cramp?
Muscle cramps are a sudden, involuntary contraction of your muscle which can be very painful and can occur during exercise, rest or even sleep. Muscle cramps are usually due to:
- Electrolyte Imbalance
- Nerve Irritation
- Side Effects of Medication
- Underlying Medical Issue
- Muscle Imbalance
Muscle Cramps generally happen in the muscles of the calf, feet, hamstring, neck, forearm, and lower and mid-back areas.
Lack of motion, or inability of motion can also be part of the cramp problem and should be addressed.
Slow extension and massaging of the cramped area will help reduce the problem, but cramps are a sign of an underlying problem that needs to be fixed. That is, if you don’t want to continue to have muscle cramps…
Chiropractic Treatment and Muscle Cramps Prevention
Chiropractic Care takes the whole body approach. Your brain send signals to the rest of the body through the spine – like a multi-lane highway. When there are detours on the highway and congestion due to compressed or squeezed nerves, the speed of communication is greatly decreased and problems start to appear.
A chiropractor will help remove those detours, decompress those nerves and get everything back up and running quickly and painlessly.
With proper alignment of the body, proper hydration and good nutrition those muscle cramps could be a thing of the past; soon a forgotten memory.
