Returning to exercise and fitness; Be aware of DOMs and soft tissue overload but don't be scared of it

Now that the festive season is coming to a close, many of us are thinking about getting back into or starting a new exercise regime.
One of the most common problems that our clients present with when increasing physcial activity is increased muscular and tendon discomfort due to soft tissue overload or delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMs). Both of these problems are associated with pain however they are not normally linked to significant soft tissue damage so the good news is long periods of rest post exercise are not usually required.
