How do I treat this "delayed onset muscle soreness" after class?

We are not medical professionals and do not claim to be. If you are worried, we recommend you consult a physician.

Generally speaking, the muscle soreness you experience will last from 24-72 hours after class, and should subside and disappear after seven days. You can reduce the discomfort with:

  • RICE treatment of the affected area (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)
  • Low-intensity activities
  • Gentle stretching
  • Massage or sauna

If you do not experience improvement from your pain in seven days, we recommend you consult a physician.
