Whole Body Vibration
What is vibration plate therapy? ^
Just like the name says, vibration plate therapy involves standing on a platform (plate) that vibrates either up-and-down or side-to-side (or both). The vibration is thought to activate the circulatory, lymphatic, and nervous systems at the same time.
The multi-system effects are believed to be due to how vibration therapy increases the impact of gravity on our muscles, bone, cartilage, soft tissues, and joints. As the platform moves, it increases the gravitational force on our bodies, which prompts involuntary responses that help us maintain balance.
