Founded by National Academy of Science members Rod MacKinnon, M.D. (Nobel Laureate), and Bruce Bean, Ph.D., recognized leaders in the fields of ion channels and neurobiology, Flex Pharma is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to creating innovative, novel treatments for neuromuscular disorders, and has demonstrated human efficacy related to muscle cramping.
Most muscle cramps are not caused by dehydration, lactic acid, electrolyte imbalance, or muscle tightness. That is why popular remedies like sports drinks, bananas, magnesium tablets, and stretching are usually ineffective.
New research has shown that cramps and spasms do not originate in the muscle itself, but are caused instead by a neural mechanism: excessive firing of the motor neurons in the spinal cord that control muscle contraction.
Flex Pharma is developing products to address muscle cramps and spasms by halting repetitive firing of the motor neurons.
