What is Whole Body Vibration?

Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is a type of treatment that has been demonstrated to improve neuromuscular function, muscular strength, balance, gait mechanics, and overall quality of life. Standing and holding positions, or executing prescribed exercises, on a platform vibrating at a programmed frequency, amplitude, and magnitude of oscillation are all part of the approach. 

Whole Body Vibration  was first used in the clinic to benefit patients in a number of ways, including;

Vibration Therapy History

The notion of employing vibration for health advantages dates back to ancient Greece, but the Russian space program employed it to recreate the weight of gravity for astronauts who would otherwise lose muscle tissue and bone density while living in orbit’s zero-gravity atmosphere.

How Vibration Helps Muscles

Your muscles contract and relax 30 times every second with each knee squat movement while on the vibration plate. Multiple muscle fibers get engaged in each movement as your body struggles to reestablish equilibrium, dramatically enhancing the efficacy of any exercise done on the plate. This is why squats on a vibrating plate demand far more energy than squats on the ground.

Vibration Treatment For Healthy Blood Pressure Levels

Whole-body vibration has been shown to prevent artery hardening in groups ranging from males in their twenties to postmenopausal women in research after study. The individuals’ blood pressure was dramatically reduced in each research.

Vibration Therapy For Stronger Bone Density

WBV has been demonstrated to enhance bone density when performed three times per week for 15 minutes, offering patients with a drug-free option to osteoporosis prevention, treatment, and improvement.

I have degenerative disc disease and have had surgery, steroid injections and they did not help with the pain. After using the Euro Shaper for a couple of weeks, the pain diminished remarkably. Did not get another surgery nor injections. Could not believe the results.
