Sunday 9/30/2007 Whole-Body Vibration for Osteoporosis

How about a therapy that increases bone-density, improves balance, and increases muscle strength in 3 minutes per day with no side-effects?  Whole-body vibration is just such a therapy.  For those of you unfamiliar with this treatment, it simply involves standing on a vibrating plate—a piece of equipment that vibrates rapidly. 

There has been a great deal of research on this treatment, and I have been using it in my office for a year with excellent results.  It has been shown to increase bone density and muscle strength (read study here), and improve balance (read study here) in three minute per day!

The bottom line is that if you are osteoporotic or osteopenic, this is an excellent modality for you.  Vibrating plates are showing up in gyms and alternative health offices rapidly—check them out!
