With the new year nearly upon us, more and more people will be hitting the gyms and making those attempts to start the new year in the right way by getting fit. However, this can often result in injury, or at least painful DOMS- delayed onset muscle soreness, but adopting a non-DOMs approach to exercise could save millions from muscle knots and stiffness.
Combining both hot and cold therapy, both pre exercise, and if you have an injury, alongside muscle massage can help loosen, soften and muscles, and post injury can help realign muscle fibres and break down adhesions.
