The purpose of this study was to examine whether an over-stimulation of the vestibular system, induced by thousands of time saccadic head stimulations, affects the vestibular sensitivity, and consequently if such a phenomenon could contribute to the deterioration of postural stability observed after a long distance running exercise. Eighteen athletic subjects performed a 20.5 km over ground race with an average speed of 15 km x h(-1), corresponding roughly to 7,500 strides shocks with… CONTINUE READING
