Stopping Leg Cramps


The information contained in this page was not written by a doctor and is not intended to be medical advice.  It is simply a statement of what has worked for some.  One should always consult a physician before trying any procedure.


Background:  The author, Ray, experienced occasional leg cramps.  As he got older, they became more frequent, so he searched the internet for a solution.  Based upon what he found, he developed his own technique:


"After searching the internet, I found info about leg cramps that was contrary to what I had thought.  One site suggested stretching the muscle when the cramp started, which seemed to me like it would hurt even more.  However, since I was tired of the pain of the cramps and the residual soreness, I tried it, and it worked."


"To stretch the muscle, the site suggested standing about 2 feet in front of a wall and leaning forward toward the wall.  This would cause one to stand on the ball of the feet, rotating the foot upwards and stretching the leg muscle that was cramping."


"When I first felt the twinge of a cramp, I would jump out of bed (scaring my wife to death) and stand against the wall and stretch.  The pain would subside immediately;  the problem was the time it took to get out of bed and go to a wall would allow the cramp to cause some pain and soreness."


"I then decided I could stretch the muscle while in bed, so the next time I got a leg cramp, I tried it.  As soon as I felt the cramp coming on, I rotated by toes "up" toward my head -- rotating my foot to simulate the foot movement when I leaned against the wall.  The pain, for me, stopped immediately, with no soreness."
