Vibration Therapy in Rogers AR

woman

Vibration therapy was originally designed and redefined by Russian and American astronauts to meet the exercise needs of astronauts. When gravity is removed, the stress on muscles and bones are removed which in affect can cause muscle loss and decreased bone density. The idea behind Whole Body Vibration was to stimulate muscular activity. These exercise protocols allowed astronauts to go months without gravity yet were able to maintain muscular strength and bone density.

Whole Body Vibration has created the ability to prevent bone fractures and osteoporosis. This is a great way to increase bone density using the same ideas the astronauts did. The way this works is based off Wolf’s Law. This law states that “Bone will remodel itself in response to applied mechanical stresses and strains.” In other words the stimulation sent through the body will fire off muscle fibers as many as 30-50 times per second. This stress on the attached bone can increase bone density.
