Health Tip: Why Muscles Cramp

Did you remember to stretch?

(HealthDay News) -- You've just finished working out, and one of your muscles is cramping and causing lots of pain.

The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons says possible triggers for muscle cramps include:

  • Forgetting to stretch before exercise.
  • Having tired muscles due to overuse or lack of exercise.
  • Exercising in hot weather, which can lead to dehydration and loss of electrolytes.
  • Sometimes muscles cramp for unknown reasons.
