Preventing DOMS

Preventing DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)

Many people take part in running events to raise money for charities

For years I’ve been helping runners prepare for events. In return for helping to raise funds for charities, I am willing to offer a reduction in fees for my services  for runners  with pre and post-run treatment.  Massage will help prepare the muscles before intense activity by stimulating the muscles and increasing blood flow.  Post exercise, it will be very helpful in preventing DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). This is soreness in the muscles secondary to exercise.

DOMS describes a phenomenon of muscle pain and soreness. It is usually felt 12-48 hours following exercise. In particular, this is following an increase in the duration or intensity of exercise and subsides over the next few days. Symptoms range from tenderness in the muscle to severe pain.

DOMS is caused by microtraumas in your muscle fibres. These are then repaired as part of the muscle growth process. Sports osteopathy can help with DOMS pain.
