A research group of the university associated with Real Madrid verified Sonkodi’s neurogenic theory of delayed onset muscle soreness

A new research finding of a Spanish research group supports the neurogenic theory of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) that was put forward by Dr Balázs Sonkodi, senior research associate of the Hungarian University of Sports Science.

These scientific findings were presented at the FIFA International Conference of Football Medicine by Hugo Keriven from the Universidad Europea de Madrid, the university associated with Real Madrid. They showed that delayed pain sensation and loss of force production due to DOMS effect could be mitigated, hence it improves performance and recovery at 72 hours by the application of combined paired associative peripheral electromagnetic stimulation (PES) and transcranial electromagnetic stimulation (TES). See related article here

This treatment finding was especially interesting in light of the fact that earlier research of the same Spanish research group demonstrated that PES by itself was an ineffective treatment method in DOMS.

Dr Sonkodi commented these research findings in a recent article and provided a theoretical explanation why the combined paired associative TES and PES treatment is the choice of treatment in DOMS and not TES by itself. See related article here.
