Vibration Medical Treatment Therapy: VIBRO-WAVE
in Boynton Beach FL
VIBRO-WAVE MEDICAL TREATMENT THERAPY
How it works: The technique that doctors in Boynton Beach FL use involve standing and holding various positions, or performing prescribed exercises, on a platform that is vibrating at a programmed frequency, amplitude, and magnitude of oscillation. You position yourself on top of the platform that will start vibrating when turned on up to 30 times per second. Your body picks up energy transmitted from the vibrating platform, which stimulates muscle contractions naturally. The vibratory waves force your muscles to contract and relax dozens of times each second. Research shows that as little as 10 minutes a day of whole-body vibration three times a week may aid weight loss when you also cut back on calories, while improving muscle strength and flexibility, increasing bone density, and decreasing the stress hormone cortisol.
The human neuromuscular system is a complex entity that delivers electrical impulses to the muscles from the high brain centers. Whole Body Vibrowave exercises use gravity as a way to increase weight bearing on the body, providing a resistance stimulus for the muscles and nervous system for several repetitive short waves of time. During each wave, the body is minimally propelled vertically upward and then returned to the normal platform height during the next vibratory wave. Proprioceptors are sensory receptors located throughout the body involving the brain, muscle tissue, tendons, joints, and vestibular (balance) system. They are capable of detecting movement and the position of the body every moment in time, through any stimulus encountered by the body. They then relay information to the brain when a body part is moving relative to the position of the rest of the body. The repetitive vibrations produced by the Vibrowave machine exposes the nervous system in a unique way, and in an effort to not overwhelm the body’s proprioceptors from being hyperactivated, the nervous system creates a calming effect leaving the muscle in a more relaxed and lengthened position. This phenomenon is often observed during static and dynamic flexibility stretching programs. The rapid vibrations produced by the Vibrowave machine seem to desensitize the muscle spindles allowing the muscle fibers to lengthen without excessive static stretching.
Research has demonstrated that the neuromuscular benefits of Vibrowave training are significantly greater than those of traditional resistance exercise on stable ground. Whole-body vibration training has also been shown to improve measures of mobility, gait, and balance, which have all been linked to falling risk. In addition, Whole body vibration is shown to be an adequate warm-up for athletes prior to competition. Overall, vibration training offers a low-impact, low-stress method to help recondition individuals and manage certain types of chronic pain, physical functioning and mobility, bone strength, and balance. There is growing evidence to support the use of a Vibrowave machine, in combination with resistance exercise and aerobic exercise, to improve your flexibility, bone density, balance, strength, and pulmonary function. These factors, along with increased functional mobility and decreased pain, are the main reasons for our patient’s high adherence to Vibrowave treatment protocols.
