how do you get rid of foot cramps?
I have a lot of foot cramps i was wondering if anybody knew how to get rid of them keep them away, and what causes them.

Well improper soles can be a reason, but the thing i would suggest most is try walking bare foot whenever you are just around the house. It helped me when i had pain in my feet.

Foot cramps are not only because you may lack exercise. Everyone gets them even athletes. It's a normal thing and it can easily be ridden of by following these steps! Just stand up, what ever foot is cramped just step toward with that foot and just press it against the ground and lean foward. No doubt easiest way, hope this helped.

•The leg or the foot region with cramp should be moved in a direction opposite to the cramp to relive the undue stretch on the muscle. To relieve the cramp in the toes, they should be turned upwards. If the muscle spasm is in the calf region, "forced dorsiflexion of foot" relieves the muscle contraction and pain within seconds. Here, dorsiflexion means elevating the fore-foot keeping the heel stable. •Prescribed pain-killers can take care of the pain if severe. •Applying ice packs to the affected region helps in acute cases. However if the cramp persists for more than a day, warm water is recommended to reduce the muscle soreness. •Affected area should be given adequate rest and an elastic bandage is used for compression that would promote quick healing. •Massaging the cramped portion with ointment or massage oil helps reduce the muscle fatigue. •Adequate supplements with professional medical advice is a must to correct the electrolyte and nutritional deficiencies What are the causes of foot cramps? •Sedentary lifestyle leading to obesity and muscle weakness •Flat feet or hyper flexible joints •Injury caused by repetitive motion •Lack of muscle strengthening exercise •Sudden increase in the intensity of workouts increases the pressure on foot •Increased breathing during cardio exercises cause lower availability of calcium in blood •Poor blood circulation and hence lower supply of oxygen in the blood as seen in alcoholics and smokers •Electrolyte imbalance pertaining to low calcium and potassium levels as well as high magnesium levels are related to spasms. Potassium imbalance disturbs the magnesium and calcium metabolism necessary for normal muscle contraction •Vitamin D deficiency •Inadequate hydration causes depletion of body fluids leading to cramps •Hormonal imbalance can cause muscle cramping •Foot problems like tendonitis and plantar fasciitis •Old worn-out footwear •Diseases like Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, multiple sclerosis, illnesses of the nervous system, diabetes, tetanus and thyroid problems can also cause cramps.

Best way to get rid of foot cramps is to walk it out. Sometimes if your feet stays in one position for a long period of time, it'll cramp and even cause a charly horse in your calves.

Stretch feet, have good shoes, dont be over wt.

If you spend a lot of time sitting and not very much walking and standing, you can get cramps in your feet. Solution: Walk around the block a few times a week.
