Although using vibration therapy to improve muscle, bone and circulatory health isn’t new, chiropractic vibration therapy is a recent development rapidly rising in popularity among chiropractors.
Research studies are now providing solid results that show short-duration, low-frequency mechanical stimulation of the body is a safe and viable method of:
- Strengthening the musculoskeletal system
- Improving posture and proprioception
- Improving motor cell pathways
- Reducing joint and back pain
- Stimulating production of beneficial hormones, especially serotonin and human growth hormone
- Dilating blood vessels to help lower blood pressure
- Relaxing musculoligamentous structures
HOW CHIROPRACTIC VIBRATION THERAPY WORKS
Your body depends on many mechanisms and structures to coordinate the transmission of vibrations and forceful impacts throughout your body. These mechanisms and structures — including synovial fluids, bone cartilage, joint kinematics, muscular activity and soft tissues — are the same ones that chiropractors manipulate and guide when applying chiropractic techniques.
By combining Whole Body Vibration and chiropractic models simultaneously, chiropractors can provide better results. Not only are they reinforcing the effectiveness of their own methods, but they’re also accelerating pain relief and recovery from a wide range of neuromusculoskeletal disorders.
CHIROPRACTIC VIBRATION MACHINE FOR RELIEF OF CHRONIC LOWER BACK PAIN
Chiropractic vibration therapy is proving to be especially helpful if you suffer from chronic lower back pain, a common complaint heard by chiropractors. Lower back pain is also one of the most frustrating conditions to treat since many cases do not respond to traditional medicine.
A chiropractic approach to lower back pain involves a complete assessment of the patient’s medical history and musculoskeletal system. This helps the chiropractor determine whether the pain results from postural deficiencies, spinal misalignment, subluxation, lifestyle issues or a merger of all possible health problems.
Chiropractic vibration therapy improves upon manipulation and adjustments, traction, and therapeutic massage techniques by gently forcing your muscles to contract and relax repeatedly. Your muscles and bones initiate a corresponding response to electrical stimulation by stimulating muscle fibers, muscle cells and nerves, and increasing blood oxygenation through vasodilation. In addition, chiropractic vibration therapy is also capable of improving the health of deeper stabilizing and postural muscles — such as pelvic floor muscles, spinal erector muscles and transverse abdominal muscles — that are difficult for chiropractors to reach.
Since Whole Body Vibration platforms can change frequencies of muscle contractions, using a combination of WBV and chiropractic methods places less stress on ligaments, joints and supportive tissues.
