NW Injury & Rehab offers vibration therapy which has become increasingly popular over the last several years as a method of exercise training and is linked to benefits in some of the most important health aspects of our lives. It’s also used by professional athletes, physical therapists, trainers, rehabilitation centers, and in military training. NASA is even testing vibration therapy as a way to help astronauts maintain bone density while they’re in space.
Some of the benefits of vibration therapy are:
- increase bone density
- increase muscle mass
- improve circulation
- reduce joint pain
- reduce back pain
- alleviate stress
- boost metabolism
Our machines are equipped with oscillation coupled with linear vibration, which helps with circulation, flexibility, toning and strengthening, detox, lymphatic drainage, balance and weight loss.
How does vibration therapy work?
In low-intensity vibration therapy, you stand on a platform while it oscillates up and down a barely noticeable amount. Both the size and speed of the vibration are set to match the natural stimulation that occurs as your muscles imperceptibly relax and contract to maintain your posture.
