Randomized Controlled Trial of a Whole Body Vibration Intervention in Truck Drivers

University of Washington


Summary

Truck drivers suffer from numerous health issues, predominantly musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) in the low back. These MSDs have been strongly associated with exposure to whole body vibration (WBV). This proposal will determine if reducing WBV exposure will improve the health and safety of trucker drivers in Washington State and the United States.
