Class 7 Biology Respiration in Organisms Reason for muscle cramps

Reason for muscle cramps

  • As we discussed that in temporary deficiency of oxygen the muscular cells respire anaerobically.

  • This leads to the partial breakdown of glucose into lactic acid.
  • This lactic acid gets accumulated in the body consequently leading to muscle
  • Hot water bath or a massage improves circulation of blood thereby increasing the supply of oxygen to themuscle cells.
  • This sufficient supply of oxygen to the cells results in complete breakdown of lactic acid intocarbon dioxide and water thereby giving you relief.
