CRAMPS IN THE CALF MUSCLES WHILE ASLEEP
We get cramps because the affected muscles suddenly become taut and strained, causing severe pain. This usually happens
because of over-exertion or dehydration. When there is a shortage of fluids in the body, there is a very high chance of our
body being short of useful electrolytes such as sodium, potassium and calcium. Electrolytes help our muscles to remain
supple, relaxed and function properly.
Here are a few simple steps to ease a cramp. First, try and relax the affected muscles. If necessary, apply ice on the
affected muscles to enable better blood circulation. Ice relieves pain and is anti-inflammatory. If a cold compress is
uncomfortable, try a hot compress instead. Next, stretch the muscles gently and gradually, but without overstretching.
Massage the area gently, ensuring that the movement is towards the heart.
For cramps in the calf muscles, stand about three feet away from the wall or a cupboard, with knees locked and heels firmly
on the floor. Lean towards the wall or cupboard, using your hands for support. You will feel the stretch in your calf
muscles, which you should hold for a while. Repeat this procedure a few times.
Keep an eye on your daily fluid and salt intake and do something to make the leg muscles work. Also, take the suggestion of a
doctor or a dietician on how to ensure a perfect electrolytic balance.
PAIN IN THE LEG DUE TO LONG TIME STANDING
Our legs support the weight of our bodies for a significant period of time every day. In some situations, we have to spend a lot of time standing, which causes strain on our legs. Even professionally, quite a few job profiles require people to stand throughout the day. Anyway, first and foremost, check with your doctor to see whether you have developed varicose veins. Or
Try to explore alternative postures to standing while you are working. If this is not feasible, common sense will help you decide what to do in order to relieve the strain. Your legs need regular exercise and quality rest so that the muscles can work properly. Massage is an additional help, but the direction of massage should be towards the heart and with an attempt to squeeze the blood flow through the legs upwards. Evenings are better for massage, because the legs may be tired by then.
Among yogasanas, you must practice toe bending, ankle bending, and rotating ankle,
rotating both ankles, pada hastasana (toe touching after checking with your doctor) and pada sanchalanasana (yogic cycling) regularly will help improve the pranic energy circulation in the legs.
Whenever possible, lie down with both your legs up and the heels resting against a cupboard or wall. Make sure that the legs are at a 60-degree angle to your chest. This will help improve the flow of blood towards the heart from the legs. If you can get a greater angle, thatâ€™s even better.For more stamina.
