Taking NSAID's for joint pain, will this work against muscle growth or recovery during training?

Clayton:

Theoretically, persisting serum levels of NSAIDs could inhibit vascular growth in the recovery stages (rest days) of training. In vascular cell cultures new vascular growth is slowed by the presence of NSAIDs. This slowing is reversed when the NSAIDs are removed. Additionally, NSAIDs during active training have been shown to inhibit vascular dilation which can limit the amount of oxygen delivered to the muscles. Check out these two references: http://jp.physoc.org/cgi/content/full/551/2/683?maxtoshow=&HITS=10&hits=10&RESULTFORMAT=&fulltext=NSAID+AND+muscle&andorexactfulltext=and&searchid=1117371061936_306&stored_search=&FIRSTINDEX=0&sortspec=relevance&resourcetype=1&journalcode=jphysiol and http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=3919134&query_hl=5 Bottom line, use NSAIDs only as long as necessary for the discomfort and avoid taking them before training or competiting.

Thanks,
