Overexertion and pain in the muscles after summer cottages will help to relieve the bath, massage and cold compresses, said on Sunday, May 8, Andrey Tyazhelnikov, chief freelance specialist in primary health care for the adult population of the Moscow Health Department.
“If the pain is moderate and you really feel it as an overstrain, then you need to reduce the load. Massage, cold compresses will help. If there is a bath, then the procedure will also help to relax strained muscles. As a rule, pain disappears in a day or three, ”he shared with RIA Novosti.
Tyazhelnikov explained that muscle pain during work in the country can be caused by the production of lactic acid during physiological processes with untrained muscles. Therefore, the load should be increased gradually. Pain can also be caused by microtrauma and sprains. Otherwise, if the pain does not go away within three days, you should pay close attention to it.
“Any redness, swelling, severe pain, difficulty walking should cause concern. Then you should not wait at all, but you should immediately consult a doctor, ”he concluded.
On the eve of May 7, Tyazhelnikov spoke about the dangers during work at their summer cottage. He drew attention to the fact that the body after the winter is weakened by low mobility, the lack of a sufficient amount of sun, vitamins and past viral diseases. Therefore, sharp intensive work in the garden or in the garden can affect health with unpleasant sensations and manifestations.
