Abstract

Strenuous physical activity can result in exercise induced muscle damage (EIMD) particularly if the exercise is unaccustomed or of a long duration. The EIMD is characterised by a number of symptoms including muscle soreness, inflammation and reduced muscle function. Numerous interventions have been used to reduce the symptoms associated with EIMD, however few have examined the efficacy of compression garments following sports specific paradigms.
