NY & NJ’s Treatment Destination for Leg Cramps
If you’ve ever experienced leg cramps, you know just how painful and debilitating they can be. Also known as a “charley horse,” leg cramps occur when a muscle in the calf suddenly contracts or tightens. This involuntary cramp can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes— during which it’s nearly impossible to think about anything but the pain.
Most leg cramps occur in the calf muscles, but cramps may occur anywhere in the leg— including the feet and thighs. Although they often strike at night, disrupting sleep, leg cramps can occur at any time of the day, leaving the affected leg feeling sore and tender for hours.
