Another great way to help relax the muscle and thereby relieve some pain is by taking supplements. One supplement that is well known to relax muscle is magnesium. This is actually one of the key components released in the brain which helps us to relax as we fall asleep.
Magnesium threonate has been shown in studies to be particularly useful to this end. Another option is to drink warm milk, which many people find comforting and particularly enjoy just prior to going to sleep.
