Dealing with Sore Muscles?
Sore muscles can cause an immense amount of discomfort and pain. This creates problems in our everyday tasks and can even cause you to avoid exercising. In order to understand how Nitro can aid in muscle soreness recovery, it is important to understand the physiological mechanisms of muscle soreness and what scientific evidence has proven to help with muscle soreness for recovery.
Muscle soreness occurs not only during and shortly after exercise but also 24-72 hours after exercise which can take up to 7 days to vanish. If you have ever experienced this it is called Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) and it is actually quite common. This phenomenon tends to interfere with our motor performance and causes pain due to the effects it has on the nervous system (Mizumura & Taguchi, 2016).
The physiological mechanism causing DOMS is related to the damage of muscle fibers which in turn causes inflammation. Research has shown that intervention to treat DOMS as quickly as possible is essential for the best results. There is empirical data suggesting that effective intervention for Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is ice massage. A study conducted by Adamczyk et al. 2016, demonstrated that subjects who utilized ice massage had a significant decrease in discomfort compared to subjects who allowed for passive recovery. Therefore, it is recommended that Ice Massage is used when individuals suffer from localized muscle fatigue.
Nitro mimics the effects of an ice massage in a more convenient manner. Its small size allows for individuals to target muscles individually. Additionally, the frozen steel ball allows for the same effects that is provided with ice without the struggle of water dripping, ice melting and not knowing how to massage the area. The 360 degree motion of Nitro allows for easy use without much instruction.
