Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) and Different Recovery Methods for Decreasing DOMS
College of Professional Studies
In this fictional study, Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is explained, and different recovery methods are investigated in order to research the decreasing effects of DOMS. Methods that are explored include different types of cool down recoveries such as a cool down with static stretching, a cool down with a combination of static stretching and foam rolling (a type of massage), or no cooldown performed at all. This study demonstrates how a combination of static stretching and foam rolling could be major factors in decreasing the effects of DOMS and perceived effects of DOMS. This presentation is in regards to the KINS 379 class assignment.
