Whole Body Vibration therapy
Whole-body vibration can offer some fitness and therapeutic health benefits.
With whole-body vibration, you stand, sit or lie on a machine with a vibrating platform. As the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to your body, forcing your muscles to contract and relax dozens of times each second. The activity may cause you to feel as if you’re exerting yourself. Research says that as little as 10-15 minutes a day of whole-body vibration three times a week may aid weight loss, burn fat, improve flexibility, enhance blood flow, reduce muscle soreness after exercise, build strength and decrease the stress hormone cortisol. Comprehensive research about whole-body vibration is still ongoing. It seems to be clear that whole-body vibration provides some health benefits as exercise you actively engage in, such as walking, biking or swimming.
Some research does show that whole-body vibration may help improve muscle strength and that it may help with weight loss when you also cut back on calories.
Whole-body vibration may also have a role beyond sports and fitness. Some research shows that whole-body vibration, when performed correctly and under medical supervision when needed, can:
- Reduce back pain
- Improve strength and balance in older adults
- Reduce bone loss
- Boosts circulation
Still, if you want to lose weight and improve fitness, enjoy a healthy diet and include physical activity in your daily routine. If you choose whole-body vibration, remember to do aerobic and strength training activities as well.
