Sore muscles from an intense exercise or from repetitive manual work can sometimes set in after a few days.
What’s causing the sore muscles?
Your muscles are not used to performing this intense activity and you can’t barely move from your workout.
Was it from taking a new fitness class, increasing the weight or total repetitions?
You have slight swelling and soreness affecting your muscles.
Exerting your quadriceps with squats?
Can’t walk down the stairs?
Your vigorous exercise on the elliptical machine has caused muscle pain.
Muscles that are in pain and sore from related physical exertion are a healthy result of exercise.
Soreness comes from the muscle fiber strains and tears and the inflammation may cause pain.
Normally, this soreness and pain subsides after a few days, however muscles can take some time to recover and repair. Your muscle weakness (fatigue) associated with shaking and trembling may be a sign that your workout is too intense, or you reached your maximum peak level.
When the muscle soreness and pain persists and you still don’t have full function of your muscle, full recovery can eventually take a few more days.
Massage can help you improve your muscular workout capacity and recovery capabilities. When you need help to recuperate, massage helps you get back into the swing of things.
Along with proper stretches, staying well hydrated, a good night’s rest; a light massage can enhance blood flow surrounding the painful site effectively and support the healing process to overworked muscles by providing oxygen and nutrients to help speed up recovery.
The gliding, compression and friction of massage techniques also flushes lactic acid from the muscles and improves the circulation which carries metabolic waste away from muscles and internal organs.
Massage will help to relax very tight sore muscles and soothe muscle aches and pains.
