If you are experiencing muscle spasms, here are a few ways to alleviate the pain.
Eat a banana a day. The banana will increase the level of potasium in your body, which will help to balance out the ratio of sodium and potasium in your body. Especially since Americans eat such a sodium rich diet.
Calcium and Magnesium will also help with muscle spasms, but make sure the calcium you take is a good quality calcium supplement.
Ice will help to decrease swelling in your muscles, and heat will help to relax your muscles. Stretching will always help to decrease muscle spasm too!
