How to Treat Exercise-Induced Soreness (Part 1 of 4)

An invigorating workout leaves you feeling on top of the world, but also invites muscle soreness and fatigue along for the ride. Whether you experience acute post-workout muscle fatigue or delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS, usually occurring when you participate in strenuous exercise or exercise you are not accustomed to doing[i]), recovery is vital to reducing aches and pain.

The severity of soreness you experience depends on the type of stress placed on the muscle. Exercise with a strong eccentric component, for example, running downhill, is shown to increase the chance of DOMS, which can last up to 5 days post workout. Not all exercise-induced soreness is considered DOMS, so it’s important to note the difference. A good indicator is when the soreness occurs. Acute soreness happens during or right after exercise (it can last for a day or two) and feels more like muscle fatigue—when you feel you’ve had a good workout but you need a break physically. DOMS occurs within hours or days after your workout and often causes tenderness, swelling, and stiffness in the joints.

Starting recovery immediately after your workout can greatly reduce muscle soreness and fatigue, and have you well on your way to a stronger, healthier body.
