Whole-body vibration (WBV) is a therapy that involves standing, sitting, or lying on a specialized device which, when activated, vibrates at a high frequency. The vibrations are transmitted through the body, causing the muscles to contract and relax rapidly throughout the treatment. This therapy can improve muscle strength, flexibility, and balance, reduce pain, and improve circulation -- a fundamental in natural healing.
During a whole-body vibration therapy session, the patients will feel a tingling or buzzing sensation throughout the body. Many describe the sensation as pleasant, while others find it mildly uncomfortable The intensity of the vibrations can be adjusted based on your reaction to the treatment. The treatment can be from 5 to 20 minutes, or longer, based on the goal of the therapy, and the condition being addressed. Typically, patients find this treatment easy to tolerate.
Whole-body vibration therapy does not involve any recovery time. Some patients may experience soreness or muscle fatigue, which is usually minor and fades quickly. After treatment, many patients report they feel relaxed, energized, and invigorated following a session. The rapid muscle contractions and relaxations work to squeeze and release the blood vessels, while increasing the demand for oxygen and nutrients, stimulating increased blood flow and circulation.
