In brief: No quick fix
There is no quick fix to muscle soreness after intense exercise.
However, proper conditioning for a sport and implementation of rest, ice baths, nsaids?, proper nutrition and hydration before and after exercise are reasonable and practical selections.

In brief: Muscle pain
The muscle pain after intense workouts is usually due to a buildup of lactic acid.
The treatment is hydration, light stretching, ice, and ndaids.

As you get used to a new level of exercise intensity, usually 2-3 weeks of daily or every other day workouts, your body should become conditioned to that level and ready for further increases, if that is your goal.
