What Is Vibration Therapy?
Vibration therapy is an alternative therapy treatment that utilizes vibrations created from sound. Many times, it is used to find relief from chronic pain and to even strengthen bones. There are two types of vibration therapy: whole-body vibration therapy and localized vibration therapy.
Whole-body vibration therapy is applied, just as it sounds, to the whole body through a vibrating platform. This type of therapy is used to encourage the production of osteoblasts in your body to help strengthen your bones.
During localized vibration therapy, your medical professional will use a hand-held vibrating device to apply vibration to a specific part of your body to be treated. This therapy is often used for treating pain in a particular area of the body.
How Does Vibration Therapy Work?
During therapy, vibration will be applied to either your whole body or a specific part of your body that you and your therapist have decided to focus on. The vibrations cause the muscles in your body to contract and relax. This can help with pain and promotes the production of osteoblasts, which help your body to create bone.
Benefits of Vibration Therapy
Vibration therapy is a non-invasive and completely painless treatment option. Many patients find relief from pain caused by chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis without experiencing side effects like they would with prescription medication. There has also been success with using vibration therapy to strengthen bones. Overall, vibration therapy is a great choice for someone who wants to try an alternative treatment to medication without the risk of unwanted side effects.
