Joint stiffness usually followed by sprain and strain to the injured area or any inflammation at the injured area.
Muscle soreness is mostly seen after the repetitive and overuse of the muscle. It is commonly experienced after the Physical workouts.DOMS (Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness) is a common result of physical activity that stresses the muscle tissue beyond what it is accustomed to,” says David O. Draper, professor and director of the graduate program in sports medicine/athletic training at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
DOMS is actually preparing your muscle to get stronger. DOMS usually starts after 12-24 hours of Physical exercise and reaches its peak between 24-72 hours where the pain is experienced to the greatest level.
