Vibration exercise is used worldwide by some of the worlds most respected professional athletes, doctors, trainers and Hollywood stars.
It may be popular with professional athletes and Hollywood celebrities, but Whole Body Vibration training also has very real clinical potential for patients with neurological disorders, including Parkinson's Disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, and spinal cord injury. Whole body vibration (WBV) has become increasingly popular over the last several years as a method of exercise training. As the name implies, Whole Body Vibration training involves the application of a vibratory stimulus to the entire body, as opposed to local stimulation of specific muscle groups. This is typically performed by standing on a vibrating platform with knees slightly flexed. In some instances, simple exercises (e.g. squats) can be performed during WBV. WBV units typically provide their vibration by using either a rotational or vertical stimulus. The most common application of WBV has been to attempt to improve physical performance in athletes and younger adults by enhancing muscle activity, strength and power associated with traditional neuromuscular training. It has been hypothesized that improvements in muscle strength and power after WBV may be related to an increase in neuromuscular activation during and following WBV.
