Resumen: Objectives: This study evaluated the effectiveness of a 6-week ‘‘usual care’’ exercise program supplemented with whole-body vibration (WBV) to improve balance and strength in women with fibromyalgia (FM). Design: This was a randomized controlled study. Settings: The setting was a physical therapy department in an academic setting. Subjects: The subjects were 30 postmenopausal women with FM (age: 59 – 7.90 years). Interventions: Subjects were randomized into one of two groups: an experimental group (EG: n = 15), which combined exercise training (2 days a week) with 3 days of WBV, and a control group (CG: n = 15), who performed the same exercise training program (2 days a week) but without WBV. Outcome measures: Balance and muscle strength were measured at baseline and after the 6-week intervention. Results: Significant differences were found ( p < 0.05) between the study groups for the Medio–Lateral Stability Index (MLSI), when patients were assessed with their eyes open and ...
