Vibration Therapy

As a therapy, whole-body vibration (WBV) was explored by Russian scientist Vladimir Nazarov who tested vibration on astronauts in an effort to decrease the loss of muscle and bone mass in space.

Astronauts in space lose their muscular strength very quickly and the decrease of bone density increases the risk of bone fractures. Before their departure, astronauts were subjected to WBV training sessions so that the density of their bones would increase and their muscular strength would rise. Vibration Therapy is becoming increasingly popular. Initially, vibration training was mainly used in the fitness industry, but Vibration Therapy is expanding quickly into all areas of physical medicine and rehabilitation.
