Progressive Health and Rehab is dedicated to holistic health, the health of your whole being. That’s why we don’t just treat symptoms, leaving the root cause untouched to cause trouble down the line. We look to the root of the problem and seek a solution there.
In our physical therapy department, we do traditional rehabilitation. Imagine you are working on strengthening your knee. You sit on a machine and your brain sends messages down to your knee and your knee responds by lifting weights. This works quite effectively to a point. But what if there was a way to start the healing at the knee and have the messages going both ways, from the knee to the brain, and from the brain to the knee. Well, there is a way. It’s called whole body vibrations.
Whole Body Vibration takes place when the patient stands on the vibration platform. The platform moves steadily in even vibrations. The body must quickly and automatically make many adjustments, up to 50 seconds, to maintain stability. This rapid series of adjustments sends neural messages to the brain, strengthening the message pathway while the muscles are being used and strengthened. Your sense of balance and muscles you never realized were involved with your stability will be worked. Additionally, your whole body will receive the benefits of this low-level vibration and you’ll feel an overall sense of relaxation. Call Progressive Health And Rehab today to make an appointment for whole body vibration, or so we can answer any questions you might have about it.
