PROOF: “The effects of athletic massage on delayed onset muscle soreness, creatine kinase (CK), and neutrophil count: a preliminary report”
Two hours after exercise, massage subjects received a 30-minute athletic massage; control subjects rested. Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) and CK were assessed before exercise and after exercise. The results of this study suggest that sports massage will reduce DOMS when administered 2 hours after the termination of exercise.
