Impact of sore muscles after strenuous exercise and their preventions
Author(s): Sharad S Javali and Dr. AG Bujurke
Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is the phenomenon of muscle pain, muscle soreness or muscle stiffness that occurs in the day or two after exercise. DOMS is nothing but ultra microscopic tearing of muscle fibers which depends on the intensity and length of exercise and exercise type. It is most frequently felt during the beginning of a new exercise program, changing exercise routine, or suddenly increasing the intensity of exercise routine. Numbers of people think that cooling down by exercising at a very slow pace after exercising more vigorously, helps to prevent muscle soreness; it doesn't. Stretching does not prevent soreness either, since post-exercise soreness is not due to contracted muscle fibers. The objective of the present study is to find ways and means to effectively deal with muscle soreness. Application of preventative strategies and curative aspects are very good tools to prevent muscle soreness.
