We all have experienced leg cramps as they are quite common and are caused when muscles become tight and painful. Most of the times, we get those cramps in the lower part of our legs, however it can affect any muscle in the body. Usually, we experience cramps at night while sleeping. We may experience pain and tenderness in the affected area for several hours once the cramps end.
It is recommended to visit a physiotherapist in case you are a victim who gets such spasms time and again. Leg cramps cannot be controlled, however they can be prevented to a certain extent if we exercise and stretch our muscles regularly.
