|Fibromyalgia Hormonal Responses to Exercise in Patients With Fibromyalgia.||Device: Vibratory platform, PowerPlate®, Badhoevendorp, Netherlands Device: Placebo Whole-body vibration exercise|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||24 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Official Title:||Effect of Acute and Chronic Whole-Body Vibration Exercise on Serum Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 Levels in Women With Fibromyalgia|
|Study Start Date :||December 2004|

|Study Completion Date :||January 2005|
Active Comparator: VG
Vibration Group (VG) underwent a protocol with whole-body vibration exercise twice a week for a total of six weeks. The group continued with their usual pharmacological treatment.
Device: Vibratory platform, PowerPlate®, Badhoevendorp, Netherlands
Six exercises (static and dynamic tasks) while standing on a Whole-body vibration platform. The six exercises (30 seconds each) were repeated six times with a recovery of 3 minutes in between. The Whole-body vibration intensity was kept constant at 30 Hz of frequency and 2 mm of amplitude.
Placebo Comparator: CG
The Control Group (CG) underwent the same protocol of exercises than VG but without vibratory stimulus. The CG continued with their usual pharmacological treatment.
Device: Placebo Whole-body vibration exercise
Six exercises (static and dynamic tasks) while standing on a Whole-body vibration platform. The six exercises (30 seconds each) were repeated six times with a recovery of 3 minutes in between. All exercises were performed without the influence of a vibratory stimulus.
