Vibration healing is an alternative therapy that involves using a mechanical vibration to treat certain health problems or injuries, and also aid in weight loss and weight management. While there are different types of vibration healing, we at Cartwright Chiropractic use whole body vibration therapy which vibrates the entire body at once.
Vibration healing is said to aid in the treatment of the following health conditions:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Parkinson's Disease
In addition, vibration healing is said to fight osteoporosis by protecting against the loss of bone mineral density. Some proponents suggest that vibration healing can also help stimulate the lymphatic system, increase metabolism, regulate blood sugar, improve sports performance, aid in stroke recovery, and promote wound healing.
Whole body vibration takes health and healing to a whole new level. When you stand or sit on the whole body vibration machine, it generates subtle vibrations that are transferred to your body. As this happens, your muscles automatically react to the vibration by contracting. Since the machine we use at Cartwright Chiropractic vibrates 7 to 28 times per second, your muscles contract and relax that many times per second depending on the speed you choose. The vibrations increase the production of regenerative and repair hormones, improve blood circulation in skin and muscles, strengthen bone tissue, improve lymph drainage and increase your metabolism.
With the whole body vibration therapy at Cartwright Chiropractic, you can also work on weight loss efforts. The machine we use for therapy is the only medically approved whole body vibration machine with FDA registration and insurance codes with proven effectiveness. It is used by more doctors for medically supervised weight loss and rehabilitation and is the safest machine available. Using the therapy 10 minutes a day can lead to a trimmer physique by: burning calories, boosting metabolism, building lean muscle mass, boosting human growth hormone, lowering cortisol, improving circulation and blood oxygenation, and improving lymphatic health.
Cartwright Chiropractic's whole body vibration therapy machine is the only medically rated and approved oscillating machine in the market. It is very beneficial for use with adults, baby boomers and seniors as it has positive effects on bone density, improves circulation, and helps to increase strength, balance, and flexibility. It is low impact and non-stressful to joints.
