The patients suffering from muscle pains randomly use painkillers and myorelaxants. However, incorrectly used myorelaxants for muscle pains which may result from various diseases can cause further problems. The first step is to identify the underlying reason of muscle pains. The treatment must be planned accordingly.
Muscle pain may appear as a feeling of fatigue on muscle, sensitivity, sclerosis, seizure, spasm, cramp or burning sensation. Muscle pain generally does not wake patients up. The pain increases when patients use that muscle. Pain may continue also in the course of resting if infection and fluid is observed.
Muscle pains caused by stress, strain, misuse or exercise can generally be cured with the treatments that can be applied at home. Pain muscles resulting from a severe injury or another disease, on the other hand, usually require a well-planned treatment.
Long term exercises may lead to muscle pains. Particularly the exercises which are started above a certain age and not designed in a customized manner may result in muscle pains. The exercises that stretch muscles like pilates may cause muscle and joint problems if the individual suffers from a spine or joint disorder or if the exercise is not performed according to the muscle structure. Massages applied due to a muscle pain may be harmful if intramuscular oedema exists.
Incorrect interventions at an early period may cause serious muscle problems and their recovery may last for months.
