With over 80% of the population suffering with lower back pain, finding all-natural solutions to treat the pain is key. And, research now shows that Whole Body Vibration (WBV) therapy could be a viable and non-invasive option to treat and dramatically reduce lower back pain.
This innovative therapy involves the use of vibration plates, a type of machine that generates the involuntary neuromuscular stretch reflex. The plates can be set to vibrate on different amplitudes and frequencies to stimulate deeper stretches, as needed to alleviate lower back pain. With WBV therapy, you can either lay down, sit upright, or stand on a platform that vibrates rapidly in one or more than one direction.
The movement of the platform initiates a muscular reflex response, causing even small to more moderate muscle contractions. The oscillations of the vibrating plate provide a form of passive exercise, where your body is simply reacting to the vibrations, as opposed to you performing strenuous activity.
By increasing the frequency of the plates, the muscles in the back are stimulated to contraction. This accelerated contractions increase the flow of blood in the arteries to the muscle cells and increases the muscles strength. In addition, by having the blood flow moving through the muscles, the body is able to naturally begin healing itself and repairing the muscle damage that may be in the painful regions of the back.
WBV therapy has also been linked to helping improve stress on the body caused by menopause as well as supporting weight loss goals.
When it comes to using WBV therapy, it is essential that you have it conducted by a licensed and highly-trained chiropractor.
