VIBRATION THERAPHY

 

HOW VIBRATION THERAPY WORKS

Since the 1960s, vibration has been used as a therapy for reversing muscle loss and achieving a number of other health benefits. However, it wasn’t until relatively recently that the full benefits of whole body vibration therapy were truly unlocked with the creation of the state-of-the-art vibration therapy machines. This machine is a carefully crafted, vibrating platform that applies high-speed vibrations to the body. This quick, painless, and effective treatment is especially effective in conjunction with other chiropractic therapies, working to boost your health and wellness while relieving pain.

Your specific use of the platform will vary based on your symptoms and clinical findings, as our chiropractic team always takes a patient-centered approach to provide unique, custom treatment for the best results.

HOW VIBRATION THERAPY CAN HELP YOU FIND RELIEF FROM PAIN

The main way whole body vibration helps to relieve pain in targeted areas of the body is by promoting better oxygen and blood circulation. This is because vibration encourages the capillaries to dilate, thus allowing for greater blood flow. In turn, this helps your body speed up its own natural healing processes while also getting rid of wastes and substances that are known to cause pain and inflammation. All of this occurs without the need for invasive procedures or medications.

 

VIBRATION THERAPY CONVEYS A NUMBER OF DISTINCT BENEFITS, INCLUDING:

Muscle building – Muscles (even tiny, lesser-used muscles that rarely receive a proper workout) respond to the vibration by contracting. This allows you to build muscle strength simply by applying the treatment area to the platform.

Circulation enhancement – Whole body vibration encourages the capillaries to dilate. This increase in blood flow efficiency enables the tissues to expel inflammatory substances and metabolic wastes that can cause aches and pains — while also delivering much-needed oxygen for the healing process.

Stability training –The strengthening of the body’s balancing muscles can also help anyone who needs to improve their musculoskeletal balance and support.

Bone density preservation – Bone responds to pressure to creating a steady supply of new bone cells, which is one reason walking is so good for preserving bone density. Vibration Therapy achieves the same effect while you’re standing in place, making it an effective wellness tool for warding off or helping to reverse osteoporosis.

Metabolism and energy boosting – The tiny but frequent muscle contractions facilitated by Vibration Therapy help you burn fat, tone the skin and enjoy a renewed sense of energy and alertness.

You have a lot to gain from whole body vibration, especially if you’ve been suffering from chronic pain. Find the relief you’ve been looking for at Metro Chiropractic with our Vibration Therapy.
