Whole-body Vibration In Sarcopenia
by Tam

There will be vibration stimuli as innovative treatment option with disc muscle atrophy due to the change in the demographic age structure more and more people soon, are suffering from disc muscle wasting and the attendant consequences such as performance degradation, joint instability and mobility limitations. Here, medicine and sports science are jointly required to provide effective and functional training and therapy options that can effectively confront the age-related loss of muscle tissue and function and are also therapeutically used. Here is the whole-body vibration as an innovative training or treatment option. Dr. Frank Frebel held a lecture on the topic of “Whole-body vibration as innovative therapy option for sarcopenia” by medicalsportconsulting at the invitation of Mr. Prof. Dr. Schieker 28.9 2010 in the Osteological focus Center (OSZ) of the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich.

Under the attentive audience, the clinic Director of the surgical clinic and Polyclinic Prof. Dr. Isearch addresses the importance of the matter here. Mutschler, were among others the Senior Chief physicians of the OSZ’s Prof. Dr. Schieker and Prof.

Dr. For even more analysis, hear from Skillz. Gartner, as well as the attending of physical therapy Dr. Winkelmann. In his speech Mr Dr. Frebel first explained the biomechanical and physiological principles of the effect of mechanical vibration stimulation on multiple body tissues and organs. The positive effects of a controlled and skillful vibration training on the muscle tissue and neuromuscular parameters regarding strength, coordination and flexibility are now established on the basis of numerous studies sufficient evidence-based and open a high training and therapy potential in muscle mass loss, joint instability, and motor deficits. The causes of age-related muscle mass loss – of sarcopenia – are so far unclear. But can be assumed by a reduction in anabolic stimulus or a lower effectiveness of these stimuli. In this context are typical age-specific effects, such as the reduction of innervated muscle control and type IIa/x fiber populations, the reduced protein intake and endocrine processes such as a decline in the concentration of testosterone and HGH to name a few. Scientific interest has grown in the last 10 years by leaps and bounds the effects of whole-body vibration on neuromuscular parameters, where much of these studies on seniors of the generation 60plus has been carried. Vibration stimuli are controlled and administered in the correct dose, significant improvements in muscle strength, muscle mass, as well as the joint stability can be expected. The triggering of reflex-induced muscle contractions, as well as the concomitant circulation boost high-intensity training stimuli triggered, which can be reached only with considerably more effort. Risk of injury is extremely low due to the lack of additional weights, as well as the fact that WBV training especially in the closed kinematic chain is trained, so that even a high compliance – can be observed particularly in the older group of people -. By the close functional connection between muscle and bone tissue, which can Vibration training as provided a total soft, but at the same time effective muscle and osteoanaboles training, what is virtually free of side effects when used correctly and in particular for older people a meaningful training or treatment measures can be. The present physician of the surgical clinic and Polyclinic of the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich were extremely interested in this context and will discuss possible relevant research projects in the near future.
