Muscle soreness is a completely natural feeling. The painful sensation you experience tells you that your immune cells are working hard to rebuild your damaged muscle tissue. It’s important to understand the best ways to prevent and recover from muscle soreness.


7 Best Ways to Fight Muscle Soreness

  • Stay hydrated, drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water/day
  • Allow for proper rest and recovery time (2-5 days)
  • Use natural mineral compounds (calcium, magnesium, and potassium) which can assist in neutralizing the acid build-up during workouts 
  • Take antioxidants to prevent free radicals from causing illness and injury to your muscles
  • Take a hot bath or use a heating pad to relax your damaged muscles
  • Stretch your muscles in the morning and evening, after your heating
  • Massage your sore muscles or seek professional massage therapy

If you experience muscle soreness lasting longer than 5 days it could be a sign of a more serious injury. Feel free to contact us at Spine and Sports Medicine to schedule a consultation to get you on the road to recovery: 212.986.3888.
