A component of this is being involved in research.  This newsletter updates you on three major research trials in which Physiologix is currently involved and the evidence that has emerged from these trials thus far.  Several of these trials will help to provide information that will be world leading in providing direction of the best treatment strategies of certain conditions. Australian physiotherapists are at the cutting edge of musculoskeletal research, and it is exciting to have this practice, here in The Gap, so involved.

keep-calm-and-love-domsDelayed Onset Muscle Soreness, or DOMS, is the fancy name for the pain and discomfort that is experienced the day after exercising.   If you’ve taken some time off or even just changed up your routine a bit, your body is vulnerable to a few days of soreness.

When the body is put under a new load, the muscles are not accustomed to that level of stress and as a result, small tears occur in the muscle.  This micro-damage can lead to discomfort or soreness in that muscle that typically peaks around 24-72 hours after exercising and can last for up to 7 days. 

The trauma that these muscles experience is actually beneficial in the long run as it allows the body to build and create stronger fibers to better manage that load in the future.  But boy, it sure is sore for those first few days! 

If you’re not used to exercising, or if you’re trying a new activity, this soreness can be a bit scary or make you want to stop.  One of the best things to help overcome DOMS is to go and do something gentle and slow to improve blood flow to those muscles to help bring the nutrients/building blocks to repair the muscle and carry away the waste product.
