At times, there are certain things you can do to ensure that you’re on the right and faster path to getting healthy and finally letting go of all the health challenges you’ve been facing. One good example is eating the right foods when you’re diabetic or undergoing physical therapy when you’re recovering from an injury.
Fortunately, there is one sort of therapy that can help a multitude of illnesses and health defects. It’s easy to do, promote fitness and well-being, and it’s not that strenuous to undertake. This is whole-body vibration therapy. You just hop on a vibration machine, turn it on, and let it work its magic on you. It can be your answer to a lot of health problems that you might be facing right now. But how can whole-body vibration therapy cure all of them? Here are 7 of its useful applications.
Recovery from Injury
When you suddenly break your arm or fracture your leg, it may seem like you’ll never be the same again. The pain is so excruciating and the damage may be so intense that you feel like there’s nothing you can do to recover. But there’s still whole-body vibration therapy, which is often a recommended remedy for injuries and other physical ailments. Firstly, since an injury will make you physically-challenged for a while, this is the only sort of workout you can do in the meantime. And as the machine vibrated you back to health, they’ll also soothe and repair your muscles, tissues, and bones that were broken and damaged when you got injured. You’ll be fully recovered in no time.
Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease is a more serious physical ailment that, unfortunately, patients can never be fully cured. It’s possible, however, to limit the damage of the illness and give you better control of your own body. Part of what ails a person with Parkinson’s Disease is the stiffness of the muscles, resulting in limited movement and pain when attempting to be more mobile. This specific symptom can be lessened with whole-body vibration therapy. One of the most basic benefits of the therapy is that it soothes your muscles and make them more relaxed. If the patient with Parkinson’s disease will consistently undergo this therapy, their muscles will likely be less stiff and the tremor in their limbs will be reduced.
Reduces Glucose in Diabetic Patients
Although diabetics will often try to cure their illness with a better diet, studies have shown that whole-body vibration therapy can also help. Part of the symptoms of the dreaded diseases is that you’ll have too much fasting glucose in your system, and a dangerous amount can lead to waker body systems. What the therapy does, in this respect, is that it reduced the amount of fasting glucose in your body. The vibrations help spread them across your entire body while undergoing physical exercises can weed them out entirely. And when your glucose levels are of respectable amounts, you’ll have better chances to control your diet and hopefully recover from diabetes.
Aids in Recovering from Heart Disease
When you just had a stroke or a heart attack, chances are you’ll have a lot of trouble navigating yourself properly. You’re unable to speak, move about, and communicate with others. Even the simple act of sitting down will be more challenging to you when you’re recovering from heart disease. But this doesn’t need to be as gloomy as it seems. When you’re on your path to recovery, hop on a vibration machine every once and while. You’ll find that the vibrations will help you get better control of your body as well as make it more relaxed. And when you’re regenerated, you might find it easier to do all the things you were able to do easily before you had a stroke or heart attack.
Strengthens Muscles after Surgery
Whichever surgery you have, whether medical or cosmetic, chances are your muscles will be exhausted and tensed. It may be because of the thought of doctors opening up and changing the natural composition of your body scares you, and even when you’re already on the surgical table, your body is still responding that way. By the time it’s over, you may feel normal, but your muscles are more likely to be tense. To loosen them up, go for whole-body vibration therapy. This is most likely the only kind of workout you’ll be able to do anyways since your post-surgery condition will limit your mobility. A few sessions on a vibrating machine will do your muscles good and help your entire body relax.
Improves Flexibility for People with Cerebral Palsy
The soothing of muscles isn’t just for adults, it’s for children as well, especially those with cereal palsy. This neurological disorder stiffens their muscles, and in turn, makes them less mobile and physically able to walk, run, and play with other kids. If your child has this ailment, encourage him/her to try whole-body vibration therapy. Its relaxing properties will calm their little muscles down and encourage their bodies to move about more. However, chances are your kid might get scared with the machine, especially if they’re too young to understand what it’s for. Encourage your kid by joining him/her on the machine yourself and getting the therapy together. They’ll be a lot more comfortable knowing their mommies and daddies are with them on their paths to recovery.
Helps Cure Osteoperosis
Apart from your muscles, whole-vibration therapy also relaxes your bones. The vibrations make them less tense, soothes them, and even strengthens them and make them denser. This is why the therapy is often recommended for those with osteoporosis. If you’re starting to have too many back pains and you’re often hunched down so that you’ll feel comfortable, that’s most likely a sign of osteoporosis. Don’t wait until your condition becomes worse. Hop on a vibration machine now and let it fix your physical problem and prevent the defect from becoming permanent. This will be easier to do since you only have to stand on the vibrating plate and not do as much work as other therapies might require of you.
If you’re experiencing symptoms or already recovering from a physical illness, try whole-body vibration therapy. Not only is it easy, but it’s also effective in curing you or, at the very least, limiting the damage of such health defects.
