Whole Body Vibration Therapy

Whole Body Vibration Therapy

Vibe plate therapy enhances motor unit recruitment resulting in increased force production and efficiency of movement.

The vibe plate creates 25-50 vibrations per second forcing the body’s kinetic chain to respond each time, requiring stabilization, coordination, strength and endurance.

In response to the vibration stimulus, individuals can produce up to 95% of their voluntary force potential while performing safe and pain free movements. These positive outcomes are made possible by the multi-dimensional stimulation of the body’s natural reflex arc allowing sensory motor function to be created and developed at a subconscious level.

The vibrations produced by the vibe plate trigger neurological responses in muscle, which stimulate sensory receptors to elicit a "tonic vibration reflex." When using the vibe plate, the recruitment threshold of motor units is lower when compared to threshold during voluntary muscular contraction. More importantly, involuntary contractions occur in response to the vibration stimulus. Therefore, patients with limited mobility can benefit just as much as patients who are more agile.

Simply stated, Vibration Therapy works—delivering safe solutions for a variety of disease states and rehabilitating conditions. Healthcare professionals have successfully used vibration technology to:

  • Decreased overall and specific pain
  • Speed up recovery of damaged muscles and tendons
  • Speed up recovery post stroke/CVA
  • Improve blood circulation and lymphatic return
  • Accelerate recovery of the tissues post ACL reconstruction
  • Improve neural plasticity and sensory motor function in spinal cord injury
  • Reduce pain, improve mood and increase activity levels in patients with fibromyalgia
  • Improve spinal stability
  • Improvement in metabolic function
  • Improve muscular tone and stability
  • Improve balance and falls prevention
  • Improve symptoms of Idiopathic peripheral neuropathy
  • Improve symptoms of Osteoporosis
  • Improve symptoms of Multiple sclerosis
  • Improve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease
  • Improve symptoms of Cerebral palsy
  • Improve symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis
