Spinal cord injuries (SCI) resulting from trauma, infections, tumors or reduced blood supply can weaken or paralyze most of your upper body and lumbar muscles. If you have an SCI, you may find it difficult to walk, sit, stand, bend over or control bladder and bowel functions.
Losing sensation is another side effect of SCI. With lost sensation, you can have trouble maintaining your balance and coordination. Consequently, you may have difficulty performing everyday activities by yourself and require assistance with bathing, dressing and running errands.
Unless you undergo rehabilitation therapy, you also may experience many other side effects, from painful, involuntary muscle contractions and muscle wasting to a high risk for osteoporosis and chronic edema. Fortunately, SCI vibration treatment can help. VibePlate is one of the best ways to regain your strength and overall health following a spinal cord injury.
SCI VIBRATION TREATMENT
If you’re having trouble exercising or can’t voluntarily contract muscles because of an SCI, consider Whole Body Vibration (WBV). WBV produces reflex muscle contractions. When you add Whole Body Vibration to your physical therapy exercise program, you can improve your success.
A spinal cord vibrating platform stimulates blood flow in your legs while activating muscle cell metabolism. When combined, these two benefits of Whole Body Vibration therapy naturally improve the ability to walk without feeling overly fatigued or unsteady.
Improving circulation in the lower extremities is the primary goal of spinal cord injury rehabilitation. That’s why many physical therapy programs for SCI include passive leg movements, such as passive cycling. However, traditional passive exercises often don’t increase lower extremity blood flow enough to provide beneficial changes.
On the other hand, clinical studies have shown that spinal cord vibration therapy adequately increases blood flow in the legs. It does this by repeatedly contracting muscles and dilating blood vessels through vibratory stimulation.
IMPROVING BONE DENSITY WITH A SPINAL CORD VIBRATING PLATFORM
Low bone mass — osteoporosis — is a secondary effect of spinal cord injuries. It presents a higher risk for fractures, breaks and bone diseases.
If you have an SCI, an imbalance between bone formation and bone resorption inevitably occurs. Hormonal, neurovascular and mechanical factors further complicate matters. In fact, research shows that loss of bone density accelerates during the first six months after an SCI, a major factor that could lead to a 25 to 30 percent loss of bone mass.
Daily use of a spinal cord vibration machine can help you counteract poor bone health. It modifies your bone fluid flow by directly stimulating your bones. A spinal cord vibrating platform emits energy that may actually mimic cell signaling, which your muscles generate as they contract during physical activity.
