Abstract

Because bone is responsive to mechanical loading, pulsating joint loading (PJL), which laterally applies oscillatory mechanical loads to joints, can be explored for preventive conditioning and therapeutic treatments. Herein, the general features of PJL are reviewed, and its potential usage for sports medicine is discussed.
