Without muscles, it is impossible to imagine life, since it is the muscles that enable vital functions, such as breathing, swallowing and moving every part of the body.
There is almost no person who has not experienced muscle pain. Muscle pain can occur in certain muscles of the body, such as leg muscle pain or back muscle pain, but also pain can be present in all muscles, e.g., in the case of the flu.
Muscle pain, or myalgia, just like any other pain, is an important signal by which the body tells us something. Find out below why muscle pain occurs and how to relieve the pain in a completely natural way with effective medications and prevention measures.
WHAT IS MYALGIA?
Muscle pain is also called myalgia, regardless of the cause. The term myalgia comes from the Greek words “myos” (muscle) and “algos” (pain).
It is used for muscle pain that can occur due to intense physical exertion (such as training or physical work), injury or due to the occurrence of some inflammatory processes.
In most cases, myalgia is not dangerous, but rather an unpleasant feeling of pain, that makes you harder to relax, fall asleep or perform daily activities.
MUSCLE PAIN – MOST COMMON CAUSES
Most muscle pain occurs due to muscle tension (caused by improper posture and sedentary lifestyle) or injuries (such as sprains or bruises) after exercise and excessive physical exertion.
Muscle pain after intense training occurs due to the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles after exertion. Muscle pain is also very common in athletes as well, and occurs due to:
• Excessive load
• Improper training schedule that does not allow body to recover for the next training
In this case, medication is not needed and muscle pain can be relieved by:
• Massage – which helps to relax and regenerate the body. In order to relax the muscles during the massage, we recommend the use of Acuraflex natural cream, which has an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect and removes or reduces pain in the neck, shoulders, back, arms and legs.
• Warm bath with the addition of essential oils or sea salt – the bath increases blood circulation, while salt restores damaged muscle fibers
• Resting of the sore muscle or part of the body before returning to training
In addition to excessive physical activity, muscle pain can also occur due to:
• Improper posture – when sitting or standing for a long time
• Chronic stress
• Exposure to external factors, such as hypothermia
• Muscle inflammation that occurs as a symptom of other diseases
• Taking certain medications
• Rheumatic diseases
• Lack of calcium and potassium in the body
Depending on which part fo the body affect, we can devide muscle pain to:
• LEG MUSCLE PAIN – can occur while resting, moving or exercising, and can be associated with trauma, prolonged physical exertion on the legs, sedentary lifestyle, diseases of the joints and spine (arthritis, osteoarthritis, bursitis, gout)
• BACK MUSCLE PAIN – which can occur due to muscle strain, prolonged stay in an incorrect position while working on the computer, incorrect position during sleep, spinal disease, mechanical trauma or myositis (chronic muscle inflammation)
• MUSCLE PAIN IN ARM – most commonly caused by injury to muscle tissue (sprains, strains or trauma), infectious diseases (such as the flu) or rheumatism
• NECK MUSCLE PAIN – most commonly associated with the use of an uncomfortable pillow or mattress, muscle strain, neck injury, or spine problems
MUSCLE PAIN TREATMENT
Treating muscle pain requires addressing the underlying cause that led to the condition.
In the case of acute muscle pain that occurs after an injury, it is essential to provide the body with the necessary rest and relaxation. Also, to reduce inflammation, swelling or pain, cooling with ice wrapped in a towel is recommended. In addition, you should avoid this load that has led to muscle pain. Sometimes it takes a long time for the muscles to recover, so you don’t need to rush with loads to avoid chronic pain syndrome and additional muscle tissue injury.
Also, nonsteroidal drugs or analgesics can alleviate the symptoms caused by injuries or excessive physical activity. Such medications should not be taken for a long time, due to possible contraindications, and if the pain lasts longer than a few days, it is necessary to consult a doctor.
To relieve muscle pain, in addition to the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, the following treatments can help to relieve the muscle pain:
• Physical therapy
• Appropriate exercises
Luckaly, there are other methods to help relieve muscle pain, without any side effects.
Acuraflex cream is specially made on the basis of 13 completely natural herbal ingredients (such as turmeric, cayenne pepper, menthol, eucalyptus, ginger, camphor, Aloe vera, Acacia Catechu) and includes vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and medicinal essential oils.
ACURAFLEX CREAM is applied directly to the skin, to painful, swollen, stiff or inflamed areas of joints, muscles, bones, nerves, tendons and ligaments.
It helps to quickly reduce or completely eliminate pain exactly where the pain occurs, increase joint and muscle mobility, instantly calm or eliminate stiffness and tired legs syndrome. Acuraflex cream has anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects and accelerates recovery from injuries due to sprains, strains, reduces swelling, reduces pain and speeds up rehabilitation. It is applied several times a day as needed.
To achieve the optimal effect of relieving muscle pain, it is recommended to use ACURAFLEX CAPSULES in addition to the Acuraflex cream. Acuraflex capsules also have anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects and relax muscles in the long run, reducing pain in the neck, shoulders, back, arms and legs.
They are used by professional athletes who want to increase and strengthen the mobility of joints and muscles, prevent injuries and naturally speed up the regeneration of the body after an injury.
MUSCLE PAIN PREVENTION
When preventing muscle pain, it is important to be careful not to overdo physical activity and to try to avoid emotional stress as much as possible. Any infectious diseases need to be treated in a timely manner and maintain an active lifestyle with a healthy diet and avoiding bad habits (such as alcohol and smoking).
Here are some tips to look out to avoid muscle aches during the training:
• It is important to warm up the muscles well and prepare them before the main workout
• You should start with lighter exercises and gradually increase the load
• It is very important to stretch at the end of the workout
• Drink plenty of fluids during the day and a few hours before training, to increase muscle oxygen levels and ensure better recovery
