Muscle cramps and spasms are some common body issues that almost every woman undergoes at least once in their lifetime. There can be multiple reasons behind it, but the impact is similar. Usually, this pain typically occurs in the leg leading to some complications in the leg muscles. If not leg, one can experience muscle spasm in toes, back, hands, or feet the most.

The overall severity of muscle spasms depends on the body type and the cause. Furthermore, it decides the treatment type to be given.

Therefore, it’s advisable to treat muscle spasm only after thorough discussion with the practitioner in real life.

Generally, one can witness positive results within 10 to 15 minutes of doing these exercises.

Treatment type 2 – An ice bag

Apply an ice pack on the affected area for at least the next 20 to 30 minutes. If the pain is severe, try to apply it thrice a day. Ensure to wrap the ice in a towel or quality ice bag. The goal is not to let the ice sensation reflect on the skin directly.

Similarly, use the heating pad for around 20 minutes at one time. This technique is highly recommended to soothe the increasing inflammation issues. Repeat the practice based on the practitioner’s recommendation.

Treatment type 3 – Give a try to CBD strains
