Is It a Muscle Ache or Body Ache?

A muscle ache or pain can be different from a body ache or pain. If you engage in a new physical activity or overdo an activity for an extended period, you might develop a muscle aches/pains from a strain or sprain. Nevertheless, this pain does not usually affect your entire body.

  • Elevation - Keeping the aching area elevated above your chest to reduce swelling
