Remedies for muscle fever

Muscle fever is felt by the body in the form of a strong pain and a high tonus in the muscle you have trained. Whether it’s caused by intense workout or due to the effort made during the day, muscle fever occurs only 24 hours after the effort.

There are three types of muscle in our body: the muscles of the heart, the smooth muscles (from the blood vessels) and the skeletal or striated muscles attached to the bones. Muscle fever affects only skeletal muscles.

                                                     Ways to fight muscular fever

1. Vitamin C – acts as an anti-inflammatory on the areas of the body that have been subjected to the effort;

2. Cold showers – helps to better blood circulation and better vascularization of the inflamed area, helping to repair muscle fiber;

3. Rest after exercise – Give muscle fibers rest and time to repair and heal properly. Avoid stretches or exercises until the muscle pains disappear;

4. Sleep for 8-10 hours – The body recovers during the night, during which time the hormones that trigger the repair of muscle tissue are triggered. A sleep that takes less than eight hours reduces the hormonal response, leading to a slower and lasting recovery.

5. Easy Exercises – Stretching exercises are recommended in muscle fever;

6. Massage muscles – to improve blood circulation and relax. Friction your muscles with your hands or an electric massage machine;

7. Drink plenty of water – to avoid dehydration;

8. Apply ice to the affected muscles – This helps to reduce delayed muscle aches, and if the muscle has stretched for a moment, the ice helps to reduce the inflammation.

9. Pain Relief – If pains persist after physical training, you can take an analgesic such as ibuprofen or even aspirin, which helps to reduce inflammation and relieve pain.

10. A balanced diet – It is advisable to add protein to the diet throughout the day. Proteins are important because they help rebuild muscle fiber and speed up recovery. Recommended foods are: chicken, fish, turkey, soybeans and egg whites, as these are the most concentrated sources of protein, being sources of iron and zinc. Proteins of plant origin are also recommended: tofu, beans, lentils and quinoa.

                      A drop of motivation to overcome the painful muscular fever

Pera Novacovici said: „If it does not hurt, you do not grow. Diamonds are born under pressure. Coal is subjected to very high pressure for a very long time. Thus, a diamond is born. Muscle fever occurs when muscle microfibres are broken after physical effort. Then, during rest, the muscles heal and grow if they get the protein and the other necessary substances. Without that rupture there would be no muscle growth. So, just as on the physical plane, there is no increase without pain, neither psychologically, painlessly there is no increase.

Remedii pentru febra musculara

Febra musculara este resimtita de catre organism sub forma unei dureri puternice si a unui tonus ridicat la nivelul unui muschi pe care l-ai antrenat. Fie ca este provocata in urma unui antrenament intens sau este datorata efortului depus in timpul zilei, febra musculara apare abia la 24 de ore dupa efort.

In corpul nostru sunt trei tipuri de muschi: muschiul cardiac, muschii netezi (de la nivelul vaselor de sange) si muschii scheletici sau striati, atasati oaselor. Febra musculara afecteaza numai muschii scheletici.

Modalitati de a combate febra musculara

1. Vitamina C – actioneaza ca un antiinflamator asupra zonelor corpului care au fost supuse efortului;

2. Dusurile reci – ajuta la o mai buna circulatie a sangelui si o mai buna vascularizare a zonei inflamate, ajutand la repararea fibrei musculare;

3. Odihna dupa efort – Oferiti fibrelor musculare repaus si timp pentru a se repara si vindeca corespunzator. Evitati intinderile sau exercitiile pana in momentul cand dispar durerile musculare;

4. Dormiti cate 8-10 ore – Organismul se reface pe timpul nopții, timp in care se declanseaza hormoni ce semnalează repararea tesutului muscular. Un somn ce durează mai puțin de opt ore scade raspunsul hormonal, conducand la o recuperare mai inceata si de durata.

5. Exercitii usoare – In febra musculara sunt recomandate exercitiile de stretching (intindere);

6. Masați mușchii – pentru a imbunatati circulatia sangvina si pentru a-i relaxa. Frictionați muschii cu mainile sau cu un aparat electric de masaj;

7. Beti apa din belsug –  pentru a evita deshidratarea;

8. Aplicati gheata pe mușchii afectati – Acest lucru ajuta la reducerea durerilor musculare intarziate, si daca muschiul a suferit o intindere pe moment, gheata ajuta la scaderea inflamatiei.

9. Calmant pentru dureriIn cazul in care persista dureri foarte mari după antrenamentul fizic, puteti lua un analgezic precum ibuprofenul sau chiar aspirina, care ajuta la reducerea inflamatiei si ameliorarea durerii.

10. O alimentatie echilibrata – Este indicat pe tot parcursul zilei sa adaugi in dieta proteine. Proteinele sunt importante deoarece ajuta la reconstruirea fibrei musculare si grabesc recuperarea. Alimentele recomandate sunt: carnea de pui, peste, curcan, soia si albusuri de ou, deoarece acestea sunt sursele cele mai concentrate de proteine, fiind surse de fier si zinc. De asemenea sunt recomandate si proteinele de origine vegetala: tofu, fasole, linte şi quinoa.

Un strop de motivatie pentru a depasi febra musculara dureroasa

Pera Novacovici spunea: „Daca nu te doare, nu cresti. Diamantele se nasc sub presiune. Carbunele este supus la presiune foarte mare pentru un timp foarte indelungat. Astfel, ia nastere un diamant. Febra musculara apare atunci cand microfibra musculară este rupta in urma efortului fizic. Apoi, in timpul de repaus, musculatura se vindeca si creste daca primeste proteina si celalalte substante necesare. Fara acea ruptura nu ar exista crestere musculara. Asadar, la fel cum in plan fizic, fara durere nu exista crestere, nici in plan psihologic, fara durere nu există crestere.
