In Dubai, more and more people like running and walking when they have spare time. But after the sport, the stress would come as soon as possible. Stress is ubiquitous in modern society and negatively impacts people in many ways, including their musculoskeletal systems. Stress tends to increase muscle tension, change blood pressure and impact the release of a variety of hormones and neurotransmitters.
Mild-to-moderate exercise, such as walking, is a simple, natural and inexpensive way to combat stress, although it might lead to tension or discomfort in your legs -- especially if you're not accustomed to it. However, there are many ways to soothe your legs, either at home or via the hands of healthcare professionals.
Get a leg massage.
Get a massage therapist to give you a thorough leg massage, focusing on the calves, shins, thighs and hamstrings. Massage reduces muscle tension and inflammation, helps break down scar tissue and promotes better blood flow. Have the therapist start rubbing from the lower part of the calf muscles and work upwards towards the hamstrings so the venous blood and lymph are helped back up towards the heart.
Ask the therapist to use essential oils (such as lavender) on your legs because it will help calm you and relieve stress.
Always drink lots of water immediately following a massage in order to flush out inflammatory by-products, lactic acid and toxins from your body. Failure to do so might cause a headache or mild nausea.
Consider acupuncture. Acupuncture involves sticking very thin needles into specific energy points within the skin in efforts to reduce pain and inflammation.
Acupuncture for stress or leg discomfort can be effective, especially if it's done when the symptoms first occur. Based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture works by releasing a variety of substances including endorphins and serotonin, which act to reduce pain and stress.
Acupuncture is practiced by a variety of health professionals including some physicians, chiropractors, naturopaths, physical therapists and massage therapists.
Seek out physiotherapy. A physical therapist can show you specific and tailored stretches and strengthening exercises for your legs, and if need be, treat your sore muscles with electrotherapy such as therapeutic ultrasound or electronic muscle stimulation with Dubai massage. A physical therapist can also develop an exercise routine / program that will help you lose weight, which is helpful for stress reduction.
Physiotherapy is often required 2-3x per week for 4-6 weeks to positively impact musculoskeletal problems.
Good strengthening exercises for your legs, aside from walking, include cycling, rollerblading, beach volleyball, swimming and weight training.
Put your feet up when you are watching television. This will increase circulation in your legs and minimize the risk of blood clots and varicose veins.
Don’t wear flip-flops on a long-distance walk or for any sports. They don’t give your feet / legs enough shock absorption, arch support or protection.
A lack of minerals in your diet can negatively affect the performance of your muscles. Adequate calcium is needed for muscle contraction, whereas magnesium is needed to relaxation.
Focus on drinking more purified water before you go on long walks because dehydration commonly leads to muscle cramps.
Quit smoking because it impairs blood flow, resulting in oxygen and nutrient deprivation to muscles and other tissues.
