For individuals who frequently engage in recreational activities, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) can be a common problem. DOMS refers to muscle pain that appears between 1 and 2 days after exercising, particularly when the exercise involves eccentric contractions or is unaccustomed. This condition not only causes discomfort but also limits strength and range of motion. The cause of DOMS is attributed to muscle cell damage and subsequent inflammation. Cold therapy is often employed to alleviate DOMS-related pain.
Body Ice, a topical analgesic, contains menthol as its primary active ingredient, known for its "counter-irritant" properties. The mechanism of action of menthol's pain relief is still being studied, but it is believed that it stimulates the skin's temperature receptors associated with an analgesic effect. Previous studies have confirmed that Body Ice reduces both blood flow and pain.
