Health Tip: Easing Muscle Soreness

Health Tip: Easing Muscle Soreness

09/04/13

(HealthDay News) -- Pushing yourself during a workout can lead to sore muscles, as their fibers may develop tiny tears.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests these possible remedies:

  • Gently stretch the muscles.
  • Treat your muscles to a gentle massage.
  • Apply ice to help minimize inflammation.
  • Apply heat to increase blood flow.
  • Allow your muscles to rest.
  • Take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) or a different type of over-the-counter pain medication.
