 Cramps can be gotten from a long period of inactivity like sitting down without moving for a long time. Certain medications can make us prone to experiencing cramps so check with your doctor if you are on long-term medication and get cramps on a regular basis.
Cramps can potentially occur in every muscle in the body but they most commonly happen in the calves, feet and thighs.

Below are the 3 Effective ways to get rid of Cramps-

1.Stretching
 This can simply involve walking around if it occurs in the leg or foot area. For calf cramps you can gently stretch the leg by facing a wall and hold both hands out bending the unaffected leg with the affected leg stretched out behind.
If you do regular exercise such as running, it’s a great practice to make sure you stretch out before and after to prevent cramps caused by the vigorous exercise.
If you suffer from night cramps then doing evening stretches in your legs before going to bed will help prevent painful night cramps from occurring.

2.Massaging
Relaxing the muscle through gentle massage will help the pain cease quite quickly. This is another great and effective way to relieve the symptoms of cramps. 

3.Applying heat- in the form of a heated pad or hot water bottle will further relax the muscle and calm down the spasming. This is particularly helpful in menstrual cramping. A hot shower will also be effective making sure the cramping area is focused on.
