Abstract

To investigate the efficacy of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for the treatment of delayed onset muscle soreness.


PubMed and SPORTDiscus databases were searched from January 12-30, 2004 for the following terms: delayed onset muscle soreness, DOMS, exercise induced/associated muscle damage/soreness, contraction induced muscle damage/soreness, muscle injury, muscle soreness, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, diclofenac, flurbiprofen, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, and naproxen.
Inclusion criteria were use of human subjects and placebo-controlled design.
Information relevant to specific drug studied, dosing, method of inducing DOMS, measurements used, and outcome were used.
Studies with primary findings supporting and refuting the use of NSAIDs for the treatment of DOMS are individually discussed.
Due to potential adverse effects and inconclusive evidence, it is our opinion that the routine recommendation of NSAIDs for the treatment of DOMS is not warranted.
