FROM OUR EXPERTS
A couple of months ago, I had coffee with a friend who had just started an exercise program. She would grimace anytime she got up, obviously her muscles and joints rebelling against her new regimen. To ease the pain, many people would use the heating bad, a massage or a hot bath with lots of Epsom salts. Those all are great ways to ease the discomfort, but there are other options you can use as well.
For instance, your dietary choices can make a big difference! “Food works on a cellular level, so you might not notice a difference in the first hour after eating them,” Jessica Crandall, a Denver dietitian and member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, told The Wall Street Journal . However, some foods can decrease muscle inflammation and can help you recover. These foods and beverages include:
Omega-3 fatty acids - The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that eating foods with omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce inflammation. The George Mateljan Foundation poi...
Scientists around the world are studying pain mechanisms of all kinds. In this article, the characteristics and causes of muscle pain are reviewed. Methods used to conduct experiments to better understand pain are explained. For example, muscle pain can be evoked by internal versus external sources. Ischemia (decreased blood flow) and exercise are two ways to induce muscle pain. Electrical stimulation and mechanical and chemical causes of muscle pain are also discussed. Exploring the causes and effects of muscle pain in an experimental fashion has shown researchers many new things. For example, muscle hyperactivity is not caused by muscle pain in the normal adult. But for someone with chronic musculoskeletal pain, increased electrical activity has been measured in the muscles. This occurs both at rest and after activity. Recent studies have shown us that muscle pain can alter motor control. Muscle pain can cause changes in muscle coordination and changes in motor strategies. The exact ...
