delayed onset of muscle soreness

delayed onset of muscle soreness

Muscle soreness that occurs 24–48 hours after exercise, especially after eccentric exercise.
 
Aetiology
Uncertain; DOMS is attributed to microscopic damage to muscle cell ultrastructure due to excessive mechanical force exerted by the muscle and connective tissues; risk is thought to be reduced by exercises that improve flexibility.

The markers of muscle injury include leakage of myofibrillar proteins such as creatine kinase (CK) and lactate dehydrognase (LDH) into the blood (13, 25), delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS) (31, 37), muscle swelling and increased circumference of injured muscle, decrease in range of motion (ROM), and decreased muscle strength (26, 42).
