"Muscle cramps are involuntary and generally happen infrequently. They can be very painful for a short time, however, many people experience chronic muscle cramping, which can interfere with their daily life. Massage therapy is an effective solution that relaxes cramped muscles and increases blood flow to the body's tissues."

The Health Benefits of Muscle Cramp Massage Therapy

Muscle cramps are involuntary, continuous tightening of one or more muscles in the body. Muscle cramps can result in intense pain that causes an inability to use the cramped muscles. Almost everyone experiences muscle cramps at some point, but millions of Americans suffer from chronic muscle cramping that impedes their everyday life. Massage therapy has shown to be an effective solution that focuses on relaxing the cramped muscles, increasing blood flow to the body's tissues, and more.

Muscle cramps are a debilitating medical problem that affects people of any age and level of activity. They can be uncomfortable to the point that they cause a worker to miss work, have elderly people become sedentary due to fearing muscle cramps or cause sleep deprivation because of the pain.

Muscle cramps usually happen infrequently and are painful for a moment before subsiding, but having a chronic situation that interferes with one's everyday life needs a solution.

Muscle cramps can happen anywhere but are most likely to affect the feet, lower back, calves, hamstrings, and quadriceps. They may come and go depending on one's diet and sleeping patterns.

One of the most common types of muscle cramps is referred to as the charley horse, which happens when the calf muscles intensely cramp, often waking people during their sleep. Other cramps may occur when you stand up after sitting for a long period of time or right after exercising.
Elderly people are more likely to suffer from muscle cramps. This is because people gradually lose their muscle mass with age, which puts more pressure on the remaining muscles to help support the weight of the body. Some other common causes of muscle cramps include:
  • muscle overuse
  • dehydration
  • muscle strain
  • inadequate blood supply
  • nerve compression
  • mineral depletion
Some factors that put you at a higher risk for experiencing chronic muscle cramps are:
  • age
  • dehydration
  • pregnancy
  • diabetes
  • nerve, liver, or thyroid disorders
Many people use massage therapy for chronic muscle cramps. A massage therapist can focus on getting the cramped muscles what they need in order to relax. This may be increased blood flow, bringing nutrients and oxygen to the body's tissues while releasing waste products. This will help the muscles relax and reduce swelling, while also increasing flexibility to reduce pain.

Cramped muscles are likely to be painful to the touch, due to a lack of proper blood flow. When the muscle does not receive enough blood, it is also not receiving enough oxygen. This makes the muscle feel sore and cramped.

With massage therapy, the muscle will begin receiving an adequate supply of blood and oxygen. The manual pressure on the muscles will help alleviate the muscle cramp.

Once the muscle cramp is released, it is important to talk to the massage therapist so they can adjust the pressure accordingly. The pressure of massage therapy should never be unbearable. It should feel like healing and productive pain.

After receiving massage therapy for chronic muscle cramps, any muscle soreness that occurs should go away after a day or two. The muscles that were experiencing cramping should stay noticeably relaxed with proper stretching and some rest, depending on the severity of the cramp. Most chronic muscle cramps require multiple massage treatments over several weeks to be effective.

Massage therapy for chronic muscle cramps will give the best results when it is combined with other medical treatments. This may include physical therapy, physician care, or chiropractic care. Often, professional massage therapists work as part of a team with other health professionals in order to treat a patient's ailment in a comprehensive way.
