Since many of you may not be familiar with it, I wanted to talk a little bit about vibration therapy, and how it factors into healing and wellness. Vibration therapy is carried out on a table or platform that produces a mechanical vibration which can be applied to the body as a whole. Vibration therapy can also be administered through targeted, hand held instruments. The specifics of the vibration can be adjusted and will vary based on the delivery device, but the effects are meant to provide similar positive results.
When varying and consistent frequency of motion is introduced to the body, it promotes circulation and relaxation. This is why many commercial massage devices offer adjustable vibration features. Beyond the immediate comforting effects, vibration therapy can help stimulate and strengthen the nerves, muscles and joints, as well as break up scar tissue and combat the effects of certain ailments, including diabetic neuropathy, chronic fatigue and weakness, osteopenia and osteoporosis.
Vibration therapy is also beneficial for athletes and other individuals focused on weight lifting, strength training, weight loss, and improvement of balance and flexibility.
A complete overview of whole body vibration therapy is available through my practice website. To find out if this approach is right for you and experience the benefits for yourself, call me at Summit Chiropractic and Longevity Center.
Yours in health,
