Cramps arise when there is a disruption in the natural flow of energy, blood, and fluid circulation. This can be caused by a variety of factors. Lifestyle, work and recreational habits, and inherited genes are all important things to consider. I suggest you consult with your primary physician to rule out calcification or salt built up in the joints.

Are women at a higher risk than men for certain sports injuries?
Jennifer Baima, MD, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, answered on behalf of Brigham and Women's HospitalYes. We all know about how women get osteoporosis from not getting enough exercise or calcium with vitamin d. Other factors that place women at higher risk are relatively loose ligaments as compared to men, wider hips when corrected for knee position, and weak quadriceps and hamstrings. Many people don’t know that the medial quadriceps muscle is at a mechanical disadvantage due to its position in women. Often strengthening this muscle decreases pain in the front of the knee.
