About

The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of a 3-month program consisted of the use of whole body vibration (WBV) in patients with fibromyalgia in order to determine whether this intervention would be effective to short and medium-term improvement of symptoms in these patients.

Full description

This was a single blind randomized controlled trial. Forty patients of FM group were assigned randomly to 2 study groups: 20 patients will be part of the experimental group (EG) that will perform a neuromuscular treatment using the vertical whole body vibration platform and another 20 will constitute the control group (CG). All these subjects will sign the corresponding informed consent for their participation in the study, according to the ethical criteria established in the Helsinki Declaration. The study took place between January and Juny 2019. Two groups of variables were analyzed in the present study three times: before, after and follow-up after three months of the intervention.
