How many times have you finished a tough session at the gym and thought, “I’m going to feel that in the morning…”? Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is a common inflammatory response in the muscles cells as a result of high-intensity workouts. While this soreness may be accepted as an unfortunate reality of leading an active lifestyle, researchers have been fervently seeking a delayed onset muscle soreness pain relief solution to decrease the pain before it starts.
Topical analgesics like Biofreeze are an easy way to achieve pain relief with a single application; but are they effective enough to reduce delayed onset muscle soreness? Dr. Michael Rogers of Wichita State University set out to establish how long Biofreeze may reduce this pain, and achieved amazing results.
