Become more flexible with chiropractic brush!
Study after study show the benefit of local vibration on the joints for flexibility and reduction of low back pain. However, general body vibration or vibration platforms are still inconclusive. While the vibration platforms are very expensive, local therapeutic massage tools can be very affordable and more beneficial. The benefits of vibration varies from improved range of motion to better flexibility. Here at Soft Touch Chiropractic, in Porter Ranch, CA we believe it also has preventative advantages.
Like brushing you teeth, "brushing" your joints only takes two minutes. Dr. Masoud Shamaeizadeh, DC recommends that you treat your joints the way you treat your teeth and gums. It only takes a few minutes to brush and floss; while you are at it you can take a few minutes to massage your body joints as well. When you vibrate your joints, in a way, you are detoxing them. Joints constantly communicate with the brain and they are important for our balance and well-being. There is evidence that movement of the joints is a good way to prevent degenerative joint disease (DJD). Watch the video below to learn more about preventing DJD.
Published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology,
the cutaneous sensation was slightly reduced after the high amplitude (8mm) WBV session, which could be beneficial for older individuals with compromised postural control.
The WBV exercise consisted of 2 sessions of 4 bouts of 10 seconds of vibration, with 10-second breaks. Parameters used in this study were 2 mm amplitude and 30Hz frequency, the improvement in flexibility being maintained for at least 60 minutes post-intervention. The group that received vibration training plus stretching showed a significant increase in flexibility compared to the non-vibration group.
The Journal of Rehabilitation Research
The journal of Rehabilitation Research and Practice investigated the effects of whole body vibration on flexibility in patients with metabolic syndrome, showing that this form of exercise can be beneficial for improving the flexibility and range of motion in joints.
Study from Western University
Whole-body vibration platforms are used to treat a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders like osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and back pain while athletes employ vibration training machines to increase muscle strength. Surprisingly, before this study, there was very little known about the effect of whole-body vibration on joint tissues.
A new study from Western University shows that whole-body vibration platforms, which are used extensively in health clubs and rehabilitation clinics, may be causing significant damage to joint tissues.
