Whole body vibration exercise: are vibrations good for you?

Whole body vibration exercise: are vibrations good for you? Whole body vibration has been recently proposed as an exercise intervention because of its potential for increasing force generating capacity in the lower limbs. Its recent popularity is due to the combined effects on the neuromuscular and neuroendocrine systems. Preliminary results seem to recommend vibration exercise as a therapeutic approach for sarcopenia and possibly osteoporosis. This review analyses state of the art whole body vibration exercise techniques, suggesting reasons why vibration may be an effective stimulus for human muscles and providing the rationale for future studies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png British Journal of Sports Medicine British Medical Journal
