delayed-onset muscle soreness

delayed-onset muscle soreness

Abbreviation: DOMS
Muscle tenderness, decreased strength, and decreased range of motion that develops 12 to 24 hr following strenuous exercise and peaks in intensity between 24 to 48 hr, although symptoms may persist 72 hr or more. DOMS may result from microtearing of muscular fibers, lactic acid accumulation, local inflammatory response, and/or physiochemical changes within the muscle fibers. Muscle soreness is most pronounced following eccentric exercise. See: eccentric exercise; inflammation

The eccentric muscle contractions cause damage to muscle fibres (Friden and Lieber 2001, Morgan 1990, Morgan and Allen 1999, Proske and Morgan 2001) triggering a chain of events that produce delayed-onset muscle soreness (Armstrong 1984), swelling (Cleak and Eston 1992), loss of range of motion (Cleak and Eston 1992), and loss of strength (Cleak and Eston 1992, Sayers et al 2000).
