Vibration therapy is a form of therapy that uses whole body vibration to enhance physical health and well-being.
Vibration therapy was first used in the Russian Space program to assist Astronauts to increase their muscle strength and enhance their bone density while in space. They found that they could then stay up to 420 days in space with little or no gravity effects whereas their American colleagues had to return to earth after 120 days.
The medical benefits and advantages of vibration therapy as testified by medical professionals that use the VibePlate, are tremendous. Vibration therapy and exercise on the VibePlate is becoming an everyday part of their rehab and therapy programs. Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is being accepted worldwide by major medical, rehabilitation, and therapeutic centers throughout the world, as well as our United States Military.
HOW VIBRATION THERAPY WORKS
Vibration Movement. VibePlate’s vibration motion is vertical. VibePlate is designed in a way that reproduces a vertical vibration. VibePlate is a stable, stationary vibration platform. There is no wobble, no side to side movement, no circular motion. It Simply provides micro hits of gravity that enhances the gravity that is already there in order to create the clinical and training compression that we need to excite our nerves, to mobilize joints, and to strengthen our muscles and enhance our function.
Why It Works So Well. A mechanical wave enhances gravity. We have gravity that pushes us from the top, it jams us into the earth and we have ground reaction force. Whole Body Vibration if properly mechanically designed, gives us vertical hits of the same kind of thing from the bottom up. Therefore, if we are caught in the middle, which the body is between gravity and the whole body vibration plate we also realize the benefits we are getting from the load of gravity, from the ability of the gravity to stimulate our bones, stimulate our muscles, stimulate our nerves, becomes very, very powerful. And if we can enhance that very quickly, very rhythmically, that is good.
WHOLE BODY VIBRATION THERAPY FOR LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Draining your lymphatic system to rid your body of toxins and pathogens is essential. It eliminates various health issues attributed to a blocked lymph system. Engaging in regular, heavy physical activity such as aerobic exercises or weight training may be one method of improving lymph drainage. However, most of us do not actually do it regularly or may not be able to perform such strenuous exercises.
Fortunately, with whole body vibration you can receive even more health benefits than you would by simply exercising without it. Using a whole body vibration machine to rid your body
of illness-causing toxins not only promotes lymphatic drainage, but it also may help you lose weight, ward off osteoporosis, and enhance the functioning of your immune system.
A lymphatic vibration plate stimulates blood flow so that freshly oxygenated, red blood cells and other nutrients circulate liberally throughout your body. As a result of controlled vibrations creating muscular contractions — similar to the contractions your muscles experience during exercise — your lymph fluid is gently forced into lymph nodes where they detect and immediately discard any toxins.
When you use a lymphatic vibration platform, you’ll enjoy a whole-body cleansing process that relieves aches and pains, improves bone strength, decreases hypertension, and empowers your immune system. Start feeling healthier than you’ve ever felt before with whole body vibration.
Whole Body Vibration is a widely used form of improving overall health and well-being. All branches of the military, professional athletes playing for NFL, NBA and MLB, and medical experts rely on VibePlate to improve all of their physiological systems, including lymph fluid circulation and drainage.
If you have these conditions, consult with your doctor before using any whole body vibration machine. Are pregnant, have cardiovascular disease, pacemaker, hip or knee replacement, diabetes, epilepsy, tumors, migraines, acute hernia, recently replaced pins or plates, recent infections or recent surgeries.
ARE YOU AT RISK FOR OSTEOPOROSIS? Characterized by reduced bone density and loss of bone strength, osteoporosis actually makes your bones even more porous — spongy — than normal due to a bone formation and bone resorption imbalance. In addition, bones affected by osteoporosis suffer from significantly decreased levels of protein, calcium and collagen. Consequences of osteoporosis include overly fragile bones, easily fractured bones, bone pain and simple stress fractures that can lead to extended bed rest and worsening of osteoporosis.
Although we naturally lose some bone density as we age, the following risk factors may accelerate development of osteoporosis or osteopenia, the precursor to osteoporosis:
* Being a female over 35 years old
* Having a small/underweight body frame
* Having a family history of osteopenia or osteoporosis
* Being a smoker
* Leading a sedentary lifestyle
* Having a poor diet or poor overall health
* Being diagnosed with hypogonadism (in men)
* Suffering arthritis and other chronic inflammatory diseases
* Taking medications such as heparin, Dilantin (for seizures) and oral corticosteroids
Osteoporosis does not present any noticeable symptoms except for vague aches and pains. Unless you have a test done to diagnose low bone density, you may not know you have osteoporosis. Being proactive about maintaining good bone health is essential to preventing this debilitating disease and protecting your quality of life.
OSTEOPOROSIS VIBRATION THERAPY
Whole Body Vibration therapy is a drug-free, osteoporosis treatment. Early spaceflight experiments supported its results. When astronauts initially discovered that lack of gravity caused them to have difficulty walking upon returning to Earth, physicians postulated that living in a no-gravity environment deconditioned their muscles. In other words, without gravitational forces continually stimulating bone and muscles cells, bones and muscles will eventually begin wasting away.
The essential destruction and reformation process is called bone remodeling, and it occurs every day in your bones. Normal physical activity, such as walking, vacuuming and shopping, stimulates bone cells to promote bone remodeling however, lack of enough activity or living in a no-gravity environment stops bone remodeling and immediately leads to loss of bone density.
USING A VIBRATION PLATE FOR OSTEOPOROSIS
VibePlate’s osteoporosis vibration machine is a state-of-the-art Whole Body Vibration platform that transmits repetitive, vibratory signals into the body. These signals activate bone cell mechanosensors in a way that makes bone cells think they are being stressed (exercised). Osteoporosis vibration therapy, like weight-bearing exercises, increases neuromuscular activity to improve bone strength and encourage remodeling of bone tissues.
Using our vibration plate for osteoporosis requires only a few minutes each session. In addition to preventing or delaying development of osteoporosis, VibePlate’s osteoporosis vibration machine will also help reduce joint pain, improve your range of motion and give you a better sense of balance and coordination.
