13 Major Health Benefits of Vibration Therapy

Vibration therapy has been widely approved and observed for its effectiveness in treating medical conditions listed below.



There are still more health benefits of using vibrating plates to be recognized.

Vibration Therapy Mechanism - a brief overview

The fast pace skeletal muscle contraction induced by vibration effectively activates and exercises our musculoskeletal system and neuromuscular system, improving their performance and functionality.

The muscle movements boost the peripheral circulation of blood, lymph and intestinal fluids in the adjacent tissues.

Vibration stimulation can also promote the endocrine system to produce hormones and enzymes that are essential for our vital biological processes, including metabolism.

muscle contraction

Because vibration therapy influences multiple body systems, it addresses our disorders on a system level. In fact, most disorders are not isolated. Vibration therapy's systematic approach has a fundamental significance.

Vibration therapy is particularly effective in treating chronic soft tissue injuries and some other hard-to-diagnose hard-to-treat diseases.

Below are 13 major health benefits achievable using a whole-body vibration plate.

13 Major Health Benefits of Vibration Therapy

1. Muscle Health

Vibration induced muscle contraction put muscles to work. The fast contraction pace and improved peripheral circulation enhance the effectiveness of muscle building and damage repair.

Chronic muscle injury is caused by repeated muscle injury and the formation of fibrosis (fibrous tissue), which compromise the muscle strength and performance.  Vibration induced muscle contraction force can break the fibrosis and allow new living muscle cells to grow back, restoring the muscle performance and functionality.

2. Tendons and Ligaments

Vibration induced muscle contraction stretches tendon and ligament, properly exercising these tissues at a fast pace and a high magnitude.

Chronic tendon/ligament injury is caused by repeated tear without full recovery and the formation of fibrosis, which reduces the strength and elasticity of the tendon/ligament. Vibration induced muscle contraction force can break the fibrosis and allow new living tenocytes and fibrocytes cells to grow back, restoring the tendon/ligament performance and functionality.

3. Bone Density

Scientific studies have found that muscle strength trainig is much more effective in promoting bone growth than other types of physical exercises, because the muscle strength training can provide the needed magnitude of mechanical stimulation on the the connecting bones for generating new bone cells.

Vibration induced muscle contraction applies pressing force on the connecting bones. Because of vibration acceleration, such a pressing force can reach the magnitude needed to signal our body system to generate more new bone cells and increase the bone density.

4. Nerve Health and Functionality

Through exercising the neuromuscular system and improving nutrient and oxygen supply to nerve cells, vibration therapy can achieve nerve health and functionality improvement.

5. Blood circulation enhancement

Vibration induced fast pace muscle contraction is effective in assisting blood movement and distribution in small blood vessels and capillaries. The muscle movements also promote interstitial fluid flow.

6. Lymphatic Circulation

Vibration therapy works the best with the mechanism of lymphatic circulation.

Lymphatic circulation mainly relies on lymph vessel’s smooth muscle contraction to move the fluid. Regular muscle movement is also essential for a healthy lymphatic circulation.  Vibration induced fast pace muscle contraction is optimal for enhancing the lymphatic circulation. The improved interstitial fluid flow also help the fluid get into the lymph capillaries.

Vibration therapy for lymphatic drainage is largely approved for its effectiveness and efficiency

7. Knee Joint Health & Functionality

Vibration therapy improves knee joint health and functionality by enhancing the connecting muscles, tendons and ligaments.

The design of whole-body vibration plate is most fitted for inducing knee joint connected muscle contraction, making vibration therapy prominent for the effectiveness on knee joint health improvement.

Enhanced muscles, tendons and ligaments improve the overall condition and functionality of knee joint. They also provide the needed support and relieve the stress on the bones and cartilages.

8. Low Back muscle Pain Relief

Certain exercise postures (like deadlifting) on a whole-body vibration plate can effectively exercise low back muscles and improve the local circulation.

Enhanced muscles, tendons and ligaments improve the overall condition and functionality on facet joints. They also provide needed support for the joints and the lumbar spine.

9. Metabolism Enhancement

Improved blood and lymph circulation enhances the supply of oxygen and nutrient and the discharge of metabolism waste.

Vibration stimulation promotes the functionality of the endocrine system for making enzymes that are essential for the metabolism processes.

Improved metabolism contributes to weight loss.

10. Senior Health Improvement

Vibration therapy's systematic approach is optimal for improving the overall health condition of senior people and help cope many aging related health issues.

The benefits on bone and muscle health from using vibration plate are very practical for senior people due to the low impact and light workload nature of vibration exercise.

11. Fibromyalgia Treatment

Fibromyalgia involves many kinds of pain and sickness symptoms. It is complicated, and not well defined and diagnosed. Treatment methods generally include physical therapy. Many patients use vibration exercise as an enhanced physical therapy and achieve better results.

Vibration exercise activates, exercises and promotes the performance and functionality of multiple body system. The improved over all health condition helps address the complicated Fibromyalgia on a systematic level.

12. Skin Health

skin-health

Vibration therapy enhance circulation system for the supply of oxygen and nutrient needed for skin health, and discharge of metabolic wastes.

Vibration stimulation also promote the functionality of endocrine system to produce the needed hormones and special proteins like collagen needed for healthy skin.

With good circulation and supply of essential cell building blocks, skin is better conditioned. vibration plate users reported the reduction of cellulite and acne.

13. Brain Function

It is unclear whether vibration exercise is effective in helping brain condition and function. Many vibration plate users reported unique effectiveness using vibration plates for stress relief and autism treatment.

Physical exercise can promote our endocrine system to secret dopamine and serotonin which help regulate mood and muscle movement. Vibration exercise is probably more effective for such a promotion.

Summary

Vibration therapy shares the same mechanism with regular physical therapy. Both achieve improvement of health condition through activating and exercising our body systems.

What makes vibration therapy different is its stimulation pattern and magnitude. Its rapidly repeated pulse of high intensive mechanical stimulation is more effective and efficient in activating our musculoskeletal system and neuromuscular system.

The unique stimulation and muscle activities also promote the functionality of our circulation systems and endocrine system to achieve overall health condition.
