The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests how to treat heat cramps:
- Stop physical activity.
- Carefully stretch the muscles that are cramping.
- Drink cool water or an electrolyte beverage that's low in sugar.
- If heat cramps are severe, treat as if the problem were heat exhaustion, a more serious condition that could require a doctor's care.
