Ways to Relieve Tight Muscles

Muscle tightness can happen for a variety of reasons. They can range from fatigue to stress to dehydration. Whatever the cause, muscle tightness leads to pain. Below are some ways to help relieve tight muscles.

  • Ice: The coldness of ice reduces inflammation, a potential source of muscle pain.
  • Heat: This can help a tense muscle relax into a non-stressed state.
  • Stretching: Keep it in a pain-free range.
  • Massage.
  • Hydration: Drink more water
  • Medical intervention: If the above strategies fall short, seek medical help.

If your pain is constant or severe, seeking out medical help is advised. A physical therapist or doctor can help you discover the root cause of your muscle pain and plan a course of treatment accordingly.
