Leg cramps can be caused by many things including not stretching enough, poor circulation, and even dehydration. Here are 5 of my favorite ways to relieve and prevent leg cramps.
Stretching the main muscles in your legs are a great way to prevent leg cramps. The main muscles to stretch are your calf muscles (calves), hamstring muscles, and your quad muscles.
Also, using compression socks to help prevent leg cramps are great since they help increase circulation and prevent fatigue to the area.
Finally, staying hydrated is really important to prevent cramping in the legs. If none of these help, make sure to check with your doctor to see if something else is causing the cramps.
