Cramp

The term cramp refers to a sudden, involuntary, spasmodic muscular contraction often associated with discomfort or pain. It may occur as a reflexive response to underlying pain or as the result of direct strain or injury to muscle. Nerve compromise and metabolic disorders may predispose a muscle to cramp. A muscle cramp can disrupt the normal movement of a joint or spinal segment.
