Following unaccustomed physical activity, a sensation of discomfort, predominantly within the skeletal muscle, may be experienced by elite or novice athletes. The intensity of the discomfort increases within the first 24 hours following completion of the exercise, peaks between 24 and 72 hours, subsides and eventually disappears five to seven days post-exercise. This is perhaps one of the most common and recurrent forms of sports injuries and is referred to as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). This exercise-induced phenomenon can also be experimentally generated.
