DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) occurs frequently in sport. DOMS usually develops 12-48h after intensive and/or unusual eccentric muscle action. They can be associated with decreased proprioception and range of motion, as well as maximal strength. DOMS disappears 2-10 days before complete functional recovery. Inflammation appears to be the most common explanation. DOMS should not be considered as an indicator of muscle damage but, rather, a sign of the regenerative process, which is well known to contribute to be increase muscle mass. If some treatments are well known to attenuate DOMS, none has been demonstrated to accelerate either structural or functional recovery.
