Leg Cramps Happen to Everyone
Leg cramps can happen to anyone at anytime – kids and adults alike. The reasons for leg cramps vary and include dehydration, nutrient deficiency, exposure to extreme temperatures or a sedentary lifestyle. Athletes and highly active individuals, however, will likely experience muscle pain and cramping regularly due to physical overexertion. For all these kinds of minor muscle strain or bruising, there are natural remedies like homeopathic Arnica that can help ease the discomfort.
Leg Cramps at Night
Nighttime leg cramps seem to be the most frequent among adults. The pain can be dull and achy or lead to restlessness (although not to be confused with Restless Leg Syndrome). And even though the cramping is obviously uncomfortable, disturbed sleep is perhaps the worst, most frustrating part of nighttime cramps.
Arnica: A Natural Remedy for Minor Muscle Pain & Leg Cramps
Leg cramp relief is just one of the numerous benefits of Arnica. For leg pain that starts slowly, but feels like it is moving up the leg, or general stiffness and bruise-related discomforts, topical Arnica ointment or gel is a great option. The best part is, you can just rub it on no matter where you may be: on the sidelines of an athletic competition, at work or school, in the car (or other methods of travel), or laying in bed.
