Health Tip: Ease the Pain of Muscle Cramps
Rest often helps

(HealthDay News) -- When muscle cramps strike, there are things you can do to ease the pain and get moving again.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers these suggestions:

  • Take a break from whatever activity triggered the cramp.
  • Gently and slowly stretch the cramped muscle, holding the position until the cramp eases.
  • Gently massage the cramp.
  • If muscles are tight and tense, apply heat.
  • If muscles are sore and tender, apply ice.
