Cramp In The Limbs

Source: Papers On Health

The treatment of this is to apply cold cloths to
the roots of the nerves which govern the affected limb or limbs. For
the legs, the cold is applied to the lower spine; for the arms or
hands, it is applied to the upper part. The limbs affected should also
be rubbed briskly with the hands, or a rough towel. Often the
irritating heat causing the cramp is in but a small part of the spine,
and the whole body is cold, or at least too chilly to make the cold
cloths a pleasant cure. In such a case FOMENTATION (see) of the feet
and legs will supply sufficient heat to make the cure by cold pleasant
and safe.
