Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the role of biochemical markers in identifying the delayed onset muscle soreness among recreational athletes. Methods: This study was conducted in Saveetha University, college of physiotherapy, outpatient department. Eighty recreational athletes participated in this study. For all we measured the biochemical markers, Creatine kinase (CK), and Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) enzymatic activity at the baseline and Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) were induced to elbow flexors by eccentric loading protocol and again the biochemical parameters measurement were repeated at 24 hours and 48 hours. Results: Paired t test analysis revealed significant differences(p<0.05) between 0 hr and 48 hours, as well as between 0 hr and 24 hours. Conclusion: Serum creatine kinase level and lactate dehydrogenase level remains elevated until 48 hours after inducing delayed onset muscle soreness and these biochemical markers can be used to identify the level of muscle soreness.
