How IV Hydration Can Help Relieve Muscle Cramps

Aug 04, 2023
Muscle cramps can be both incredibly painful and disruptive. We discuss how IV hydration could be the perfect solution to dealing with cramping muscles here.

If you’ve ever experienced a muscle cramp, you know how painful they can be. 

Muscle cramps occur when one, part of one, or more than one muscle starts tightening and relaxing involuntarily. While these most often affect muscle groups in your legs, they can also occur in your abdomen, arms, hands, and feet. The most common symptoms of muscle cramps is sharp pain that can last anywhere from a few seconds to 15 minutes.

Because we understand how disrupting muscle cramps can be to your sleep or just daily life, Katherine Go, CRNA, and the rest of our team at Rejuvenate IV Therapy located in Spring, Texas, want you to know that we offer IV hydration as a solution to cramping muscles. In this blog, we review what can cause muscle cramps and how IV hydration can help.

Common causes of muscle cramps

There are many things that can cause you to have muscle cramps. 

One of the main causes is exercise, and muscles cramp up during physical activity for many reasons. You can become dehydrated during intense bouts of exercise, which has been proven to make your muscles more susceptible to cramping. Muscle cramps can also occur during physical activity due to simple muscle overuse. Low blood supply during participation in running or walking can also induce muscle cramps.

Another common culprit of muscle cramps is a deficiency in calcium, potassium, sodium, or magnesium.

IV hydration to the rescue

Because muscle cramps are so often caused by dehydration and mineral deficiencies, IV hydration is the perfect way to make sure that you stay hydrated and have the right amount of nutrients in your body. Even though you can stay hydrated and get enough nutrients through drinking water and taking vitamin supplements, IV hydration can get you these essential fluids and minerals quickly and efficiently.

In addition, if you actively exercise or participate in sports activities, we offer athletic performance support to make sure that muscle cramps won’t hold you back from doing your absolute best in whatever activity you’re doing.
