The Olympics is fast approaching, providing us with a fantastic summer of sport to enjoy. And as we have already seen during the recent Euro 08 football tournament, the sweltering heat and the intense action have led to numerous players being struck by cramp during the games. British tennis hopeful Andrew Murray has also been prone to bouts of muscle cramp throughout his career to date showing that even the greatest athletes are not immune to this painful condition.

Muscle cramp is an extremely painful and distressing condition, which occurs when there is a sudden contraction or spasm of the muscle. And it’s more common than you might think, causing distress to over 13 million people in the UK. Cramp can strike at any time, but most often following intensive exercise or at night after turning or stretching during sleep. The sudden tightening and hardening of the muscle can disturb sleep and result in soreness that lasts for days. Crampex is the only licensed medicine available without prescription for the prevention and treatment of muscle cramp and it is available over the counter at pharmacies.
