Sore No More: How to Reduce Muscle Pain After Exercise

Muscle pain after exercise, also known as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), is a common phenomenon experienced by many individuals who engage in physical activity. DOMS typically occurs within 24 to 48 hours after exercise and can last up to 72 hours. The exact cause of DOMS is not yet fully understood, but it is believed to be caused by microtears in the muscle fibers and subsequent inflammation.

During exercise, the body undergoes stress that causes small tears in the muscle fibers, which leads to the release of inflammatory chemicals. This inflammation triggers pain receptors, leading to the sensation of soreness and discomfort. As the body repairs these microtears, the muscle tissue becomes stronger and more resilient, leading to increased fitness and performance over time. While DOMS can be uncomfortable, it is a natural part of the body's adaptive response to physical activity, and it can be managed through proper rest, hydration, and nutrition.

With the arrival of spring, many of you are excited to jump into outdoor activities like running, cycling, or hiking. However, a quick uptake of these activities can put a significant amount of stress on the body, leading to fatigue, soreness, and decreased performance. Fortunately, several of the technologies available at The Recovery Spa can help improve performance and speed up recovery. Two such technologies are NormaTec Compression and NuCalm Performance.

Why Normatec & NuCalm?

NormaTec is a compression therapy system that uses a patented pulsing of air pressure to massage the legs, arms, or hips, promoting faster recovery by reducing muscle soreness, and improving circulation and lymphatic function. This technology can be especially helpful for athletes looking to recover after long training sessions or intense competitions. By using NormaTec, individuals can reduce muscle damage and inflammation, allowing for a quicker return to peak performance.

NuCalm is a neuroscience-based technology that is designed to help individuals achieve a deep state of relaxation and reduce stress. In terms of athletic recovery, NuCalm can provide a number of benefits. Firstly, it can help to reduce stress levels, which can interfere with recovery and increase the risk of injury for athletes dealing with the physical and mental demands of training and competition. Secondly, NuCalm can help to promote better sleep, which is essential for athletic recovery. During deep sleep, the body repairs and regenerates tissue, releases growth hormone, and restores energy levels.

NuCalm is currently used by Olympians and professional athletes in the NFL, NHL, MLB, and NBA, with exceptional results.

Using NormaTec and NuCalm in combination can be an effective way to maximize performance and recovery during the spring season. 

By using NormaTec to improve circulation and reduce muscle soreness, and NuCalm to improve sleep and reduce stress, individuals can be better equipped to tackle their favourite outdoor activities.

So why not try out NormaTec and NuCalm and see how they can help you achieve your goals this spring season?
