Research Alert: Effect of Exercising Using Whole Body Vibration in Patients with Neurological Disorders
In the paper linked here, there is a discussion of the effect of exercising using whole body vibration.
It is a review of multiple studies that investigated whole body vibration in patients with neurological disorders. The authors state that there is evidence for modest improvement in balance, strength, and spasticity in those with multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, and spinal cord injury.
The benefit may be small, but for all these conditions, improvement was observed. Whole body vibration is another way to improve the effectiveness of your physical training.
I discuss this technique in my exercise and e-stim course.
