  • Gently stretch sore muscles.
  • Treat your muscles to a gentle massage.
  • Use an ice pack to ease inflammation.
  • Use a heating pad to promote blood flow.
  • Use an over-the-counter pain medicine, such as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID.)
  • Give muscles time to rest and recover.
