Home Remedy for Sore Muscles #8 – Movement
If you’re just stiff and sore, more of what got you that way may be the answer. Over time, your muscles will build and strengthen and you’ll be able to do more with less discomfort. I know if I sit too much (say, working on a certain website…), I get awfully stiff. Just getting up and moving around and doing some gentle stretching works wonders.
Our muscles tend to want to stay doing whatever they’re doing, unless we force them to change. If you’re tensed up, they’ll stay tensed up. Stand up, walk, run, stretch, garden – do whatever you can to be active, so you can stay active as you age….

How Bad Is It to Just Foam Roll When You’re Sore? Sara Angle | Oct 08, 2015 shape.com
The benefits of foam rolling are vast, but only turning to the tool to ease muscle soreness isn’t your best bet
“..That’s because whenever you use recovery tools like the foam roller (even if it’s just every now and then), you’re cleaning out some of the lactic acid that builds up in your muscles during exercise. Compare the action to putting air in your tires—you’re fluffing the muscle up so it’s not as tight and dense, Roxburgh explains. But you’re also rolling out connective tissue, or fascia. Fascia wraps around your entire body like a wetsuit, from the top of your head to the bottoms of your feet. In healthy form, it should be stretchy and flexible like Saran wrap, explains Roxburgh. But knots, tension, and toxins can lodge in the fascia, making it hard, thick, and dense, like an ACE bandage. If you had surgery, a doctor would notice the difference…
Roxburgh recommends foam rolling before your workout for five to 10 minutes. By hydrating the tissue before you exercise, it will be more supple, giving you greater range of motion during your workout (read: longer strides on your run, deeper pliés in barre class). Even on rest days, foam rolling will release tight muscles from sitting at a desk all day. And the best part is, you don’t need fancy recovery tools to reap the benefits: a simple foam roller and a tennis ball are Roxburgh’s go-to tools.”
