Got muscle cramps? We can help!

Almost everyone has experienced muscle cramping at least once in their life, and I think we can all agree they are NOT FUN. The top causes of muscle cramping are typically due to dehydration or lack of magnesium in the body. Proper water intake recommendation is HALF your body weight in ounces, for example if you weigh 200 pounds, your body needs 100 oz of water per day to be properly hydrated. If you drink non water drinks such as coffee, soda, tea or alcohol that actually counts against your daily water intake. The other common cause of muscle cramping is due to a lack of magnesium in our diets. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heart beat steady, and helps bones remain strong. Recent studies have shown that magnesium particularly magnesium chloride, can provide rapid relief when applied directly to cramping muscles. Magnesium helps the muscles to relax while also reducing the ridgity in the cell membranes throughout the body. Recent studies have shown that magnesium chloride is effective in treating and preventing muscle spams. We can apply the magnesium cream immediately following a chiropractic treatment or you can even buy one to use at home in between treatments. In our office we offer various forms of natural vitality brand magnesium including gummies, drinkable and even a topical muscle relief cream. Stop in the office to get yours or give us a call at 515-278-9678
