Muscle Strain / Spasm

Spasms, often known as muscular cramps, happen when your muscle contracts quickly and impulsively yet are unable to release. These can affect any of your muscles and are fairly prevalent. They may involve a single muscle, a group of muscles, or both. The thighs, calves, feet, hands, arms, and belly are the areas where muscle spasms occur most frequently. Specifically, when they affect the calves, such cramps are referred to as “charley horses.” A “nocturnal leg cramp” is a leg cramp that occurs at night when you are resting or asleep. Muscle spasms can range in severity from minor twitches to moderate discomfort to severe agony. The spastic muscle may be clearly deformed and/or feel harder to the touch than usual. Flinching might be noticed. Spasms frequently last between a few seconds and 15 minutes or more, and they may return several times before disappearing.

Signs and Symptoms of Muscle Spasms

Even though not all muscle spasms ache, some of them do. Occasionally, for a few seconds, it may appear as though the muscle is jumping or moving independently. Some individuals might even be able to see the twitching of the muscles. There are instances when a muscle can feel as though it has completely tightened up and is immobile. The legs are where this impact most frequently manifests, and it can be very painful. When touched, the muscle could feel tough. Although the cramping usually subsides within a few minutes or so, the muscle may continue to pain for a while.

  • Muscular fatigue
  • Nerve numbness
  • aches and pains in the head, neck, or back
  • a prickling or stinging sensation
  • paralysis
  • refusal to cooperate
  • difficulties sleeping
  • slow movements.

Prevalence after adjustment was 46% (95% CI: 38-53%). 15% of the study population reported having cramps more than three times each month, and 31% said they had been awakened by them. When compared to the age range of 60–64 years, logit regression showed a somewhat higher prevalence in the 65–69 year group.

Ayurveda Treatment for Muscle Cramps

Muscle spasms don’t have to “simply live with” you! Although they may be unforeseen, there are some actions you may take to not only stop them but also to calm them down when they do occur. Muscle cramps shouldn’t hinder you from engaging in a regular exercise regimen or disturb your sleep.

Drink warm milk to instantly relieve cramps in the stomach. Milk’s alkaline qualities aid in calming the stomach’s acidic condition, which causes cramps. Additionally, it has a lot of calcium, which is known to help relax tense muscles.

  • Exercise that stretches the muscles is useful in easing the sharp pain of leg cramps.
  • The garlic substance known as “Lagsunadivati,” which is also useful in relaxing muscles, is also believed to pacify the “vata dosha,” which helps to relieve muscle cramps.
  • . To relax the tense muscle, massage the sore area using “prasarini taila” or “mahanarayana taila.”
  • Apply an ice pack to the strained muscle to lessen its pain and swelling.
  • It is commonly known that Sinhanaada Guggulu can instantly relieve muscle cramps. It has therapeutic qualities that have a light laxative impact. It lowers the agony caused by stomach cramps and eases the condition.
  • “Lakshmivilaas rasa” and “Prataapa lankeswara rasa” are two of the most potent Ayurvedic remedies for severe pain

Our Approach

According to ayurveda, a healthy body is graced by the mutual functioning of the three boldily dosas such as vata , pitta and kapha along with manasik dosas .

Your voluntary muscles’ ability to contract is controlled by a biological force known as vyaana vaata. The vyaana vaata – a subtype of vata ‘s functioning  is impeded by a muscle cramp. If that error remains unrectified from the body, metabolic wastes—harmful toxins—tend to build up in your body and get lodged in your muscles and nerve endings. According to Ayurveda, this toxic waste is called as “aama,” and it is a well-known contributor of cramps. Besides aama, vata dosha is also responsible for muscles cramping.

This could be as a result of long standing reasons that might’ve contributed to the vitiation or provocation of vata dosa , this vata Is then housed by the weakened muscles which leads to further vitiation of kapha dosa seated there.

Thus, the muscle strength is deeply affected whichis preceeded by muscle spasm or bulging.the term pindikotveshtana is used to refer to the same.
