Stretch the muscle

If you suffer from a muscle cramp, stretching can help. When you stretch, you pull the muscle in the opposite direction of the contracted muscle, elongating it. When you stretch, you want to gently lengthen and pull the affected muscle. Do not overextend the muscle. If you feel pain, stop immediately. If it feels tight, hold it but do not go any further. Hold each stretch for about 30 minutes.

Replace electrolytes

Replace electrolytes, especially sodium and potassium, when you are exercising or sick. You can do it through diet or electrolyte-enhanced beverages.

Moderate fluid intake

If the patient can still pass urine, moderate fluid intake can guarantee their urine volume so that it can help correct the mineral balance.

Improve renal function

The radical treatment for muscle cramp is to improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the most effective treatment for improving kidney function. This therapy is on the basis of traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) but has made some breakthroughs. With the help of osmosis device, the active ingredients in Chinese medicines can be permeated into kidney lesions directly. Through dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients for kidney lesions, the herbs can repair the damaged kidney cells. After that, kidney function will also be improved. When kidney function is improved, imbalances in fluid and electrolytes, nerve damage or blood flow problems can all disappear. In this way, muscle cramp will be alleviated radically.
