What is Vibration Therapy and how does it work?Vibration therapy dates back to the 19th century, with Dr. John Harvey Kellogg inventing a whole-body vibration chair in 1895 claiming it could help improve blood circulation and help with constipation. However, modern research on vibration therapy is only about as old as the turn of the century. Using a patented handheld device (Rapid Release Technology), Dr. Leybovich pinpoints the area of discomfort and transmits different sized waves vibrating at 10,000RPM into the area of discomfort, stimulating tissue which in turn increases blood flow and healing to the region. This vibration does not induce actual exercise. The vibrations instead cause your muscles to contract and relax. Vibration therapy used in conjunction with other healing techniques makes this method particularly useful for deep, hard to reach muscular, tissue, and joint problems. This treatment is particularly helpful for those who exercise and want to recover faster from intense workouts, or those with other athletic/sports related discomforts and injuries.
Which conditions does this sort of therapy treat?Modern research shows Vibration Therapy is used to help treat and even prevent a surprising number of medical issues. These can include, but are not limited to:
- carpal tunnel
