[Purpose] The purpose of this study is to examine the influence of the vibration form-roller exercise on the pain in the hip joint and the joint performances. [Subjects and Methods] 30 adult patients were randomly sampled and divided into form-roller group (15) and the vibration form-roller group (15). The two groups were exposed to an exercise regimen of 3 sessions per week, over 4 weeks. Each session was composed of warming-up (5M), main exercises (20M), and five minutes of cool-down (5M). [Results] The result of this study, in the intra-group comparison of the Performance, the PRE group increase in the flexion, extension, and abduction of the hip joint, the VPRE group increase in flexion, extension, external rotation and internal rotation. In the comparison between groups, the VPRE group increase in the flexion and internal rotation. Through the intra-group comparison the pressure pain, the PRE group and the VPRE group decreases in the all muscles. In the comparison between the groups, there was increase in the iliotibial tract of the VPRE group. [Conclusion] The result of this study the effect of the form-roller & vibration form-roller exercises. Therefore, various exercise methods would have to be developed in order to overcome the limitations in the existing form-roller exercises.
