Whole-Body Vibration Promotes Beneficial Changes on the Anterior Tibial Muscle Histomorphometry of Hypothalamic Obese Rats

SUMMARY Background. Due to the deleterious effects of obesity on muscle tissue and the search for tools to reverse these losses, it is important to understand the effect of physical exercises on the muscle structure of obese individuals. This study aimed to analyze the effect of whole-body vibration (WBV) on the histomorphological parameters of the … Continued

Electromyostimulation and whole-body vibration effects in elder sarcopenic patients

Background. Sarcopenia is a progressive and generalized loss of the skeletal muscle mass and function associated to aging. Among the different possible practical approaches, the Electromyostimulation (EMS) and the whole-body vibration (WBV) were proposed. The aim of this review is to synthetize the most up-to-date evidence behind the use of this therapeutic approaches. Methods. A … Continued
