Muscle soreness & body aches after physical activity

11 Dec 2023

Muscle soreness and body aches are very common after any sport or physical activity and it can be related to an over production of lactic acid. Rehabilitation plays a crucial role in the recovery process, helping individuals to remove the body pain and to improve overall flexibility. It also helps in enhancing the body’s ability to cope with physical stress.

Through a combination of physical therapy, rest, and tailored treatments, individuals can gradually return to their daily activities.

Here at Dermapro, and for a better and faster recovery, we provide a combination between supplements and treatments such as:  




They can play a role in supporting the recovery. They can include: 

  • Magnesium assists with muscle recovery, helps support healthy muscle contraction, relieves sore muscles, and prevents muscle stiffness.
  • Glutamine can accelerate the recovery process, improve protein metabolism, reduce inflammation, and decrease fatigue and muscle soreness.
  • Protein helps in muscle repair, growth, and recovery. It prevents muscle breakdown and increases endurance to exercise.
  • Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) provide essential amino acids, which aid in recovery, promote muscle growth while facilitating muscle repair. BCAA can even help ease sore muscles, fatigue, and reduce the severity of Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness (DOMS). 
  • Fatty acid supplements supply energy, but also reduce inflammation. A medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) fatty acid helps by reducing lactic acid buildup. An Omega 3 fatty acid is a viable option for workout recovery as it reduces muscle fatigue and muscle soreness while enhancing joint flexibility. It also offers injury protection.
  • Creatine supplement may aid in muscle recovery resulting in greater muscle strength during the recovery process and boosts performance.
  • Tart cherry juice extract for full muscle recovery. It works by reducing inflammation in the muscle and helps minimize post-exercise muscle pain and soreness. 
  • L-Citrulline helps improve blood flow. This makes it easier to get blood and other nutrients to the muscle, speeding their recovery and enhancing workout endurance.

  • Cryotherapy: A common approach that involves exposing the body or part of it to extremely cold temperature for a short duration. It can help by reducing the inflammation and the muscles spasm and accelerating the recovery.
  • The Iyashi dome: This high technology infrared therapy helps to relax muscles, release any source of tension and the accumulation of contractures due to physical effort.
  • The Robotic Scanning System: The automated High Intensity Laser can contribute to pain suppression and faster injury recovery. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Physical therapy sessions: A combination of stretching, massage and exercises to release the body tension and for a faster recovery.
  • Dry needling: It involves inserting thin needles into trigger points in muscles to alleviate pain and improve its functions.
  • Cupping: It increase blood flow and promote healing
