Hydrate.Electrolytes: Charley horse is another term for a cramp. This is something that often occurs due to prolonged or strenuous exertion, especially of one muscle repeatedly. Once a charley horse occurs, massage or stretching of the area may be helpful. It is important to stay well-hydrated and maintain normal electrolyte levels to prevent cramps.
