Main Content

The science behind Whole Body Vibration (WBV) has been around for over 40 years, and the effects of WBV are remarkable. At Itasca Health & Chiropractic we utilize vertical, oscillating, and elliptical vibration to provide the right machine for the right results.

Finally, a form of exercise everyone can stick with! Whether you're looking to reduce weight, fight cellulite, build muscle, improve flexibility or even improve your golf swing, Whole Body Vibration will help you reach your fitness goals. Vibration training is low impact and gentle, enabling anyone, regardless of their age or fitness levels to use it. One can get the benefits of exercise without putting strain on joints or bones. 

How does it work?
Stranding on the unit, the body automatically reacts to the vibrations. During typical resistance training exercises, the body recruits only about 40% of the muscle fibers during each rep of a muscle contraction. With the stimulus of WBV, which is produced by the rapid acceleration/deceleration of the platform, muscles recruit over 95% of the fibers on each rep due to the forced involuntary contraction. The brain does not voluntarily know which part of the muscle spindle to use, so it flexes the entire muscle at once.
