 When you work out or play sports you will have muscle strains and cramps in your muscles from time to time. You can get microtares in your muscles after a work out or physical activity. Larger tears can happen when the muscle is strained beyond its natural limit or suffering a blow which can happen in any muscle but mostly in your thighs.

 This area is used when running or sprinting especially in sports. If you have a sudden or severe pain in the muscle you probably have sprained the muscle. You can treat this at home with RICE: rest, ice, compression, elevation. You can take over the counter medications like Advil.

 You will need to limit your movements in the muscle that is hurt. This can take a few days and is it is still not getting better you need to see your doctor.

 According to a recent Mayo Clinic study on weight loss, participants who received cash incentives were more likely to stick with the weight-loss program and lost more weight than participants who received no incentives.

 Muscle soreness is less then having a sprained muscle. This usually show up a day or so after a work out. This happens when you lift weights. It is the process of breaking down the muscle to build more muscle. This will help you grow leaner and stronger. You can feel some mild soreness in the muscles and the surrounding area. It is best to keep moving and try not to over work the sore muscles while they are rebuilding new muscle. The more blood flow to the area the better this helps repair the muscles. Just simple movements like walking will increase oxygen in the blood which is good for your muscles. If you need to you can ice the area for ten minutes every couple hours. As you do these few things your body works to heal the muscles that are sore.

 Muscle cramps are caused by involuntary contraction of the muscles and can be painful. Many times this is caused by being dehydrated and need to drink fluids since the muscle cramps from lack of fluid. The muscles need fluid like sports drinks to contract and relax. This can happen after heavy work outs especially in the summer months since we tend to sweat more during a hard work out. Muscle cramps most commonly occur in the calf or thigh. A sudden sharp pulling sensation in the muscle is a muscle cramp.

 You should sip on a sports drink to replenish electrolytes, potassium, magnesium which can help prevent muscle cramps. You can also do a pre-exercise warm up like walking or jumping before you stretch your muscles.
Muscle tightness is caused from not moving or just sitting in one position for an extended period of time. When your movement is restricted your muscles tend to tighten up. If you feel your muscles or some other area of your body getting stiff you need to get up and move around.

 Your muscles are tense and contracted so you need to take it easy to keep from strains or tears. You can do light stretching to relax the muscle tightness or just walk around to get the blood flowing. You can place a tennis ball against the wall and lean against it and let it roll the area of the muscles that are tight. This will help release the tension in the tight muscles. You also need to hydrate even if you are not exercising since you need plenty of fluids for you muscles especially as you age.
