Recently we began offering vibration therapy as part of our wellness practice. In short, it is a treatment that uses sound vibrations to relax muscles, relieve pain, and in some instances to rebuild and repair bone injuries.
It offers a wide range of benefits to patients which include:
- Increased Bone Density
- Decreased Back & Joint Pain
- Increased Muscle Mass
- Raised Metabolic Rates
- Reduced Stress & Cortisol Levels
- Reduced Muscle Soreness
- Improved Healing And Recovery Times
However, today we’re going to talk a bit about vibration therapy and the role it plays in treating neurological and autoimmune conditions.
There have been several studies on the effectiveness of the treatment for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
In Parkinson’s Disease patients report a short term reduction in tremors and rigidness, which can offer a temporary respite from otherwise crippling symptoms. These results, unfortunately, aren’t long term, nor do they appear to improve the condition in general, but they can offer some relief.
In Multiple Sclerosis patients turn to vibration therapy as a means to help improve their muscle mass and strength, often in their lower extremities. With three weeks of treatment, many patients report an improvement in muscle weakness and increased mobility.
Rheumatoid Arthritis patients derive the most benefit from vibration therapy. The treatment can assist with their chronic pain and inflammation as well as relaxing the muscles around their joints, which assists in reducing their fatigue. Many RA patients undergoing vibration therapy report a progressive improvement in their condition.
Improvement rates tend to vary by patient, but most patients with chronic conditions begin to experience positive results within 2-3 treatments.
We’re offering vibration therapy in all of our office locations across Pennsylvania and Delaware. Sessions are quick, easy, and convenient, so if you’re curious about how our new treatment can help you, call us today at 1-888-338-6001.
