Q. What is Whole Body Vibration Therapy?
A. Whole Body Vibration uses a platform that patients either stand, kneel, sit on or attach other equipment to that can target specific body parts to complete their designed exercise or rehab programs.
Q. How does Body Vibration Therapy Work?
A. Vibration platforms move at speeds that increase muscle stimulation. The body undergoes changes of rapid acceleration and deceleration, similar to running or being on a trampoline, allowing for increased range of motion in the muscles, tendons and ligaments in the areas being treated. This helps increase blood supply in strenth and neurologic response, aiding in improving balance and movement therapies.
Q. How long do sessions last?
A. Most sessions last between five to twenty minutes, depending on the number of areas being exercised and the severity of the injury or condition being monitored.
