HOW IT WORKS: What many people don’t know is that there are several mechanisms in our bodies that we depend on to coordinate the transmission of vibrations and forceful impacts. These mechanisms include synovial fluids, bone cartilage, joint kinematics, muscular activity, and soft tissues. These happen to be the same ones that chiropractors manipulate and guide during adjustments. Combining Whole Body Vibration and chiropractic models, we can provide better results.
Whole Body Vibration gently forces your muscles to contract and relax repeatedly, stimulating your muscle fibers, muscle cells, and nerves, and increasing blood oxygenation through vasodilation. In addition, chiropractic vibration therapy is also capable of improving the health of deeper stabilizing and postural muscles that are difficult for chiropractors to reach, such as pelvic floor muscles, spinal erector muscles, and transverse abdominal muscles.
CHIROPRACTIC VIBRATION MACHINE FOR RELIEF OF LOWER BACK PAIN: Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints from patients and can be extremely frustrating since most cases do not respond to traditional medicine. Fortunately, many patients see success through vibration therapy.
A chiropractic approach involves a complete assessment of medical history and musculoskeletal system to help your chiropractor determine whether the pain is from postural deficiencies, spinal misalignment, subluxation, lifestyle issues, etc.
Chiropractic vibration therapy paired with regular adjustments greatly improves patient symptoms. By gently forcing your muscles to contract and relax repeatedly, muscle fibers are stimulated and blood oxygenation increases through vasodilation. Since we control the frequencies of muscle contractions, combining Whole Body Vibration and chiropractic methods places significantly less stress on ligaments, joints, and supportive tissues.
SPINAL CORD ADDTN: Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) can also be treated through vibration therapy. If you’re having trouble exercising or can’t voluntarily contract muscles because of an SCI, Whole Body Vibration may be right for you.
A spinal cord vibrating platform stimulates blood flow in your legs while activating muscle cell metabolism.
Whole Body Vibration therapy naturally improves your ability to walk without feeling overly fatigued or unsteady. Improving circulation in the lower extremities is the primary goal of spinal cord injury rehabilitation. That’s why many physical therapy programs for SCI include passive leg movements, such as passive cycling. However, traditional passive exercises often don’t increase lower extremity blood flow enough to provide beneficial changes.
Clinical studies have shown that spinal cord vibration therapy adequately increases blood flow in the legs by repeatedly contracting muscles and dilating blood vessels through vibratory stimulation.
