The purpose of this study was to analyze the
effects of whole body vibration(WBV) and the compare with conventional
therapy(ultrasound therapy) on the delayed onset muscle soreness(DOMS) after
eccentric exercise of forearm flexor muscle. Whole subjects of this study were
21 students. They were distribute into three groups : WBV group, ultrasound
therapy group, and control group. After eccentric exercise by arm curl machine,
same indicator was measured at the before DOMS, just after exercise, 24hr,
48hr, 72hr. Also DOMS level was evaluated at same intervals by making use of
algometer and visual analogue scale(VAS). The data of measurement was analyzed
by using SPSS 12.00 Ver. To analyze the difference between WBV-control groups
and between WBV-ultrasound therapy groups used General Repeated Measure ANOVA.
The result were as follows : There are not a significant difference between the
groups for algometer, but VAS was difference(p<0.05). And within groups at
the all groups was a significant difference for measurement
time-courses(p<0.05). The result of this study indicated that most effective
group of decreased DOMS among three groups was WBV.
