However, only a few studies evaluated the efficiency of this specific stimulation modality, and most of them focused on post-exercise recovery after exercise-induced muscle damage; they reported that NMES (low frequency stimulation) had no effect (Craig et al., 1996; Martin et al., 2004; Weber et al., 1994) or only moderate influence (Vanderthommen et al., 2007) on delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) following eccentric exercises.
The symptoms of delayed onset muscle soreness which include strength loss, pain, muscle tenderness, stiffness, and swelling, have been reported to occur within 48 hours of damage and last beyond 5 days.
