Muscles are an important part of our daily lives. They help us to move, lift things and even breathe. There are three types in the human body – skeletal, smooth, and cardiac. Skeletal muscles are those that we can see and feel. They attach to our bones and help us to move. Smooth muscles are found in our internal organs, such as the stomach and intestine. Cardiac muscles are found in the heart. All three types need oxygen and nutrients to stay strong and healthy.

Certain muscles can become injured due to overuse or trauma. This can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness. To relieve pain in them, it is important to rest, apply ice to the area and take pain medication if necessary. You should also avoid activities that aggravate more injury. If the pain does not improve after a few days, it is important to see a doctor so that they can rule out any other potential causes of the pain.
