The rapid effect of vibration on bone formation and resorption in the growing skeleton

Harrison Rachel , Ward Kate , Lee Ellen , Bishop Nick

Background: Mechanical stimulation is thought to be critical for bone anabolic activity. It is unclear how quickly the growing skeleton responds to additional externally-applied mechanical stimuli. We wished to determine the acute effect of a standardised mechanical stimulus to the growing skeleton.Objectives: To determine the acute time course and magnitude of bone’s response to whole body vibration (WBV) in pre-pubertal boys.<p class="abstext"...
