P-24 Early whole-body-vibration treatment on knee neuromuscular function and postural control after acl reconstruction
MetadataShow full item record
Randomised controlled trials dealing with the impact of WBV therapy on neuromuscular control after ACL reconstruction are scarce. To assess the effects of adding an early whole-body-vibration protocol at optimal frequency (WBV-OF), to a traditional rehabilitation programme (TRP), in comparison with a TRP, on maximal strength and balance, after ACL reconstruction. Thirty-four ACL reconstructed patients with hamstring-tendon graft underwent either 4 weeks of WBV-OF training in addition to a TRP, or to a TRP only, starting from the first month after surgery. Patients were assessed for maximal voluntary isometric strength during both knee extension and flexion and for balance on a force platform before, 1 month after treatment and at 3-month follow-up.

A comparison of the effects of effleurage and passive rest on blood lactate removal in track athletes after exercise. Bitchell, Charlotte (Cardiff Metropolitan University, 2015)The purpose of this study was to discover if sports massage had a greater effect on the removal of blood lactate after high intensity exercise when compared with passive rest. Nine university level track athletes (19.9 ...
