To Compare the Effect of Vibration Therapy and Massage in Prevention of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS)
Journal of Clinical & Diagnostic Research (January 2014)
Exciting research for people who swear by the BuffEnuff® Power Massager as their GO-TO RECOVERY TOOL!! In this dynamic study, 45 non-athletic female participants were assigned to three treatment groups to determine if there is any benefit from vibration therapy and massage after exercise. The three groups consisted of the following:
15 subjects received NO TREATMENT (CONTROL)
15 subjects received 5 minutes - VIBRATION THERAPY
15 subjects received 15 minutes - MASSAGE THERAPY
Participants were measured in the following areas:
1) Muscle Soreness 2) Range of Motion 3) Maximum Isometric Force (Strength) 4) Repetition Maximums 5) Lactate Dehydronase & Cretain Kinase - muscle waste products
In the study, participants were measured in these parameters 24, 48, and 72 hours after exercise and the VIBRATION THERAPY & MASSAGE THERAPY groups showed significantly better responses to exercise with LESS PAIN, BETTER RANGE OF MOTION, MORE STRENGTH, and less MUSCLE WASTE PRODUCT RESIDUE.
As a result of this study, our suggestion to our tribe of BuffEnuff® Power Massager users is:
1- Be sure to always use it for a least 5 minutes after every exercise session.
2- Drink 1 quart of purified water for every 50 lbs of body weight.
3- Apply BuffEnuff® when performing HINGING actions on joints and tissues to help facilitate flexibility.
4 - Use BuffEnuff® Power Massager on OFF days to help improve muscle strength and help aid tissue repair that results in improvements of strength.
