How does vibration therapy work?
The purpose of vibration therapy is to improve physical health and well-being by utilizing whole-body vibration. A wide range of health benefits has been researched and proven for years by healthcare practitioners, professional athletes, and personal trainers. Often used as a treatment for chronic pain caused by arthritis or acute injuries, vibration therapy offers focused relief to the area in pain. Migraine and severe headache pain can even be relieved by it.
Vibrations are transmitted throughout the body, stimulating muscle contractions and relaxations. The result is an increase in blood flow to the areas in need of healing. Additionally, certain vibrations stimulate the production of osteoblasts, which play an important role in bone growth and repair. Therapy machines and products relieve pain by sending gentle, massaging sensations to replace the discomfort, without causing electric shocks.
Vibration Therapy involves passing waves through a platform to the body. A series of pulses or stimuli are delivered to the nervous system, causing muscles to contract. Muscles are exercised by this stimulus.
When you use Vibration Therapy, almost 100% of your body’s muscular system is exercised, from head to toe, unlike conventional physiotherapy which stimulates only 40-60% of your muscles. Vibration training is particularly beneficial to deep-lying muscles, such as your postural muscles.
You will experience a positive impact on your hormone balance and feel less stressed thanks to the vibrations. The feeling of relaxation, fitness, and alertness increases. An effective body workout can be completed in less than 10 minutes.
According to studies, vibration therapy enhances blood distribution, which plays a vital role in the regeneration of damaged tissues and in the delivery of vital nutrients and hormones to all parts of the body. In the end, it can enhance an individual’s general wellness and quality of life regardless of their age, physical condition, or neurological condition.
The body’s natural healing process is accelerated by vibration therapy. Cellular oxygen circulation is increased, cellular nutrient uptake is stimulated, cellular fluid movement is enhanced, and cellular waste removal is assisted.
As well as increasing regenerative and repair hormone production, vibration therapy also strengthens bone tissue, improves lymph drainage, and increases basal metabolic rate. Thus, muscles and tissues recover faster, are more flexible, mobile, and coordinated, collagen is improved, and fat is reduced through increased strength, speed, and stamina. Among its benefits are enhancing muscle strength, balance, range of motion, bone density, flexibility, stamina, blood circulation, the level of serotonin in the brain, which improves mood and energy levels, lymph drainage, and basal metabolic rate.
Whole-body vibration therapy and localized vibration therapy are the two main types.
The therapist will ask you to stand, sit, or lie on a vibrating platform during whole-body vibration therapy. You may be asked to bend your knees while standing in a half-squat position.
Your therapist will use a handheld vibrating device to perform localized vibration therapy. You may have it placed on your calf or thigh muscles, for example.
Vibrations transmit to your body and cause your muscles to contract and relax. Your body may also produce more osteoblasts when it is exposed to certain types of vibrations. Bone is produced by these cells.
Vibration therapy may be affected by the direction and intensity of vibrations. There are some machines that produce only vertical vibrations. Vibrations produced by others go up and down, front and back, and sideways. Those who want to produce rapid muscle contractions will benefit most from up-and-down vibrations.
