Enhancement of the adolescent murine musculoskeletal system using low-level mechanical vibrations
Journal of applied physiology
Mechanical signals are recognized as anabolic to both bone and muscle, but the specific parameters that are critical to this stimulus remain unknown. Here we examined the potential of extremely low-magnitude, high-frequency mechanical stimuli to enhance the quality of the adolescent musculoskeletal system. Eight-week-old female BALB/cByJ mice were divided into three groups: baseline controls (BC, n ϭ 8), age-matched controls (AC, n ϭ 12), and whole body vibration (WBV, n ϭ 12) at 45 Hz (0.3 g)doi:10.1152/japplphysiol.00764.2007 pmid:18258802 fatcat:rcinydu3y5dfjivr3q2yntqh2u
