Whole Body Vibration Therapy Meridian

A Swedish medical student named Jonas Gustav Zander introduced the concept of physical vibrations, who explored the connection between body mechanics and muscle building in the 1860s. He established an institute, which used his machines to help workers correct physical impairments. He thought that vibration therapy could help strengthen muscles and increase weight loss.

Whole-Body Vibration Therapy is not like your vigorous workout in which you are engaged in a single activity. It is a procedure in which you stand, sit, or lay in a knee bend position on a platform that vibrates your whole body to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions. These rapid vibrations force your body muscles to contract. It is, in a way, a form of exercise for the muscles. It may help strengthen your body muscles. It may be helpful for people with muscle weakness or soreness and even those who are unable to exercise.

Benefits Of Whole Body Vibration Therapy

The Whole-Body Vibration Therapy is non-invasive and may help in the following ways:

  • Strengthens your muscles and bones
  • Increases lymphatic circulation
  • Increases flexibility
  • Enhances neuromuscular knee control
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Improves balance

How Whole Body Vibration Therapy Works

Whole-Body Vibration Therapy is of two types: whole-body and localized. We will ask you to stand, sit, or lay on the platform like a machine during the whole-body vibration therapy. You will have to bend your knees and half-squat position for this therapy. While in localized vibration therapy, we will place a hand-held device on the targeted areas such as calf or thigh muscles. Some muscles work vertically while the rest work up, down, front, back, and sideways. Sometimes too high vibrations can be risky depending on everyone’s condition. These vibrations in your body will help muscles to contract and relax. However, the intensity of these vibrations would determine the results.
