The most common causes of muscle pain are tension or stress, overuse and overdoing strenuous activity. As we try to get our bodies into shape, we sometimes forget that our muscles are not that equipped to carry out what our mind imagines. Muscles generally need more time to adjust, even if the person is reasonably fit. When a muscle is pushed beyond it's limits, as in strenuous activities when we're not warmed up or if we're unused to exercise and overdo it the first time out, then more intense damage can appear in the form of localized pain or inflammation. However, if you overdo it, do not worry, homeopathy has the solution.
How to prevent muscle pain
First thing you should do is stretch before you work out. Stretching is especially valuable during the winter months when muscle fibers are tightened to conserve body heat. Then, try not to overdo. Although our brain might seem to think that we can do something, our muscles often beg to differ. So we should, in this case, listen to our muscles rather than our brain.
First aid when experiencing pain
When experiencing muscle pain caused by injury or overuse, rest the region affected until the inflammation settles. During the first 24 hours you should apply ice on the affected region, but never to bare skin. Use an ice pack, or protective covering. Massages and gentle stretching are helpful in order to ease the pain.
