On the other hand, in the satellite cells-dependent mechanism, quiescent satellite cells become activated, proliferate and eventually, fuse with myofibers, or fuse to each other to form new myofibers.

However, while the use of NSAIDs has been shown to decrease perceived muscle soreness and pain associated with DOMS, they fail to impact the length or degree of muscle weakness, may be detrimental to muscle cell repair and adaptation by decreasing satellite cell activity, and have been shown to suppress the protein synthesis response in skeletal muscle after eccentric resistance exercise."
