Today Dr. Reminga talks about foot cramps, what they are, why we get, them and... what we can do about them. Have you ever had a foot cramp that is so painful you don't know what to do with yourself... other than scream? Sometimes foot cramps can wake you in the middle of the night, during a workout, while driving a car, or... when you're just sitting still on the couch. No matter where or when they happen, they quickly distract you from what your doing. Foot cramps are not uncommon and feel like a paralyzing stiffness. A cramp happens when a muscle suddenly contracts and doesn't relax. This sudden contraction, or spasm, causes the pain. If you have ever experienced foot cramps, today's program will be of interest to you.

Dr. Reminga talks about the causes of foot cramps... such as, dehydration, nutritional imbalances, overexertion, not stretching before a strenuous workout, poor circulation, and... even wearing the wrong shoes. He also shares some valuable tips on what to do when a foot cramp strikes. What does apple cider vinegar, mustard, and a hot water bottle have in common? They can all help with foot cramps. Sound intriguing? Find out more about foot cramps so you can avoid them in your future or know what to do if you find yourself in the grip of a foot cramp.
