Chest pain: what does it mean?
It generally appears in conjunction with a physical effort and is of muscular origin or linked to the intercostal nerves. It can be resolved by immediately stopping the effort made and resting. If, on the other hand, it’s associated with symptoms such as: heaviness in the chest and sternal burning, often also radiated to the shoulders, arm or jaw, it can be traced back to a cardiological problem and therefore be evaluated together with the doctor.
Hardened calf, is stretching sufficient?
This pain is typically attributable to a cramp that can be alleviated by stretching the muscle with energy continuously. Hot and humid environments and dehydration favor cramps. When it appears you need to stop physical exertion and apply ice.
Does tension in the back cause pain in the thigh?
In reality this is a defensive response of the body to stress that improperly weighs on the back. Stretching and rest are the only remedies for pain relief.
Headache: pros and cons of fatigue?
If you suffer from headaches, aerobic exercise helps relieve symptoms. The cause of pain, if resulting from physical exertion, is lactic acid. In this case the remedy is only the total cessation of the effort and a recovery time of at least ten minutes.
Sore liver and spleen, what causes it?
Wrongly traced to these organs, these pains are actually of spastic origin and start from the colon.

The remedy is simply a correct diet and the right interval between meal and training.
