In this week’s blog we will be discussing:
D.O.M.S. (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)

If you practice strength training, step aerobics, jogging, etc. you may have or do suffer from D.O.M.S (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). DOMS is a type of damage that likely results from stresses that occurred during exercise. Although many believe that DOMS is due to lactic acid accumulation, however Lactic acid is not a component of this process. It is also typically mistaken to be a muscle strain.

Below are the many symptoms associated DOMS:

Muscles feel sore
Muscle weakness
Typically starts after sleeping and continues for 24 to 72 hours.
Swelling of the affected area/limbs
Reduction of strength over the course of a few days
Tenderness to the touch

Activities that cause DOMS cause the muscles to lengthen when force is applied. Symptoms tend to diminish during activity, but they will return after recovery.

Treatment options to ease the pain:

Stretching (prevents shortening and tightening of muscles)
Physical Rehabilitation
Foam Roller (helps to alleviate pain)
Drinking water
Hot/cold Therapy (speeds recovery)
Massage Therapy


Progress slowly in new programs/workouts
Allowing the muscles time to recover
Proper warm ups are key
Seek a medical professional (not every work out regimen is for everyone)
