Using Whole Body Vibration in Physical Therapy and Sport by Alfio Albasini, Martin Krause, Ingo Volker Rembitzki

Using Whole Body Vibration in Physical Therapy and Sport

Description : This innovative new manual demonstrates the application of vibration technology to the treatment of pathologies such as osteoporosis, osteopenia, stroke and different musculoskeletal disorders. It covers pathology on the upper and lower extremities as well as the whole spine. New treatment strategies are practically and logically presented with recommended exercises and accompanying instructions that can be applied using the vibration platforms. Rationale is given for selected vibration frequencies, amplitudes and modes for the duration and frequency of the exercise session. The manual is grounded in evidence underpinned by a thorough literature review (including a balanced view of both pros and cons) and clinical cases. The authors present clinical treatment parameters that are evidence-based and have supportive physiological rationale that is consistent with the nature of the pathology being treated. The text is further supported by online access to over 35 video clips demonstrating the possible treatment exercises. First book of its kind applying evidence-based vibration technology to physical (physiotherapy) and sport therapy practice Exercise recommendations accompanied by over 70 four-colour illustrations Indications and contra-indications in clinical practice Comprehensive literature review of evidence base and principles Written and supported by experts actively applying this technology to their practice Access to PIN-protected website with over 35 exercise video clips (www.usingwholebodyvibration.com)- see inside front cover for your PIN and instructions on how to register
