Whole Body Vibration does your body good!
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is an innovative therapy that involves exercising on a platform that sends vibratory impulses through the entire body. These vibrations create stronger recruitment of your muscles and nerves. These rapid mechanical stimulations cause a neuromuscular response that goes beyond what could be acheived through traditional exercise. In fact, WBV is used with astronauts to combat muscle and bone loss that occurs during extended periods of space travel.
Previous trauma and old injuries leave our bodies with residuals that impede normal movement and function. Using WBV allows the body and brain to re-program movement patterns. This unique therapy allows for more efficient rehabilitation compared to standard therapies.
WBV places limited stress on joints and soft-tissues. Thus, people with conditions such as osteopenia, degenerative arthritis, and fibromyalgia, as well as disorders of movement and balnce can benefit from this therapy. Use WBV for 10-15 minutes 3-5 times a week as a general exercise program and enjoy all the added benefits!
Benefits of WBV include:
Increased bone density Reduced joint and muscle pain
Increased muscle mass and strength Improved circulation
Increased balance, flexibility, and mobility Improved lymphatic drainage/edema
