Our Methods: Vibration Therapy
What is it?
It is a device that generates vibrations at certain frequencies which are transmited by the platform to the person standing or sitting on the unit.
Vibrations generated make your muscles contract without your involvement. This effect combined with exercise makes the workout much more effective and helps to gain muscle power and tone in shorter time.
How does it work?
As a result of continous muscle activity throughout the body, the circulation increases as the muscles are pumping the blood. Mechanical oscillation of the platform reaches the joint surfaces producing joint gliding which encourages joint lubrication and proprioception. Mechanical stimulus is also transferred to the bone where it works on the bone microarchitecture and increases bone mineral density (BMD).
Vibration therapy can be used to :
- decrease osteoporosis, osteopenia
- increase balance
- strenghten the muscles and increase muscle tone
- acute thrombosis
- acute inflamation of musculoskeletal system
- kidney, gall blader stones
