Theories and Fallacies of Muscle Cramps


Just a quick post today about a subject I frequently get asked about.  I recently found a great article on The Science of Sport website which discusses some recent research about muscle cramps during exercise.  The focus is on runners, but I think the theories proposed will apply to many different types of endurance athletes.  The article gets a little technical in some areas, but I think the take away concepts are very interesting.  Enjoy!


If chronic cramping has been an issue for you during exercise, you may consider coming to one of our facilities for a free consultation or asking for a physical therapy referral from your physician.
