Have you ever done a good workout and the next day rolled out and bed and thought – great! I don’t ache, only to find that the day after you can’t move. Yes I thought so. Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) usually comes on 24-48 hours after an intense workout and is primarily caused by the bodies inflammatory response.

Pain - physical or emotional? We've all visited both places I'm sure. Physical pain caused by injury can be incredibly frustrating to those of us who work out or practice every day. Not to be able to do our usual regime which is such a part of our lives can sometimes make us angry and short with ourselves and others. We may become low and depressed if the injury persists for longer than a couple of days, and then we start to feel unfit and lethargic - a possible vicious circle.
