Flashcards in 2018. Ritzmann. Vibration Therapy In Patients With CP systematic review Deck (6)
What does the traffic light report for whole body vibration?
-gross motor goal: yellow over worth it line, half way up to green (1-3 RCTs)
-tone management: just above worth it line (1-3 RCTs)
According to the systematic study what does one session of whole body vibration do? (3 things)
1. Reduces reflex excitability
2. Reduces spasticity
3. Reduces coordination deficits
What positive effects does whole body vibration have? And what long term?
Positive effect on
-ability to move
-reduce muscle tone + spasticity
What changes are there in the muscles immediately after vibration?
Antagonise- muscle activity
Vibration therapy triggers what two types of stimulation? And what does it do in these?
Sensory stimulation: muscle spindles, golgi-tendon organ join receptors
Mechanical stimulation: Dampening of vibration stimulus by muscle-tendon complex and rhythmic joint movement
