Vibration Plate Benefits Overview

Training sessions as little as 10 minutes a day on vibration plate machines have been shown to provide a signficant health benefit. These benefits enhance, but do not fully replace, traditional exercises. A vibration plate works by rapidly firing the muscles throughout the body, gently increasing the load on the bones and joints.

Some vibration plates that use an intense, high-frequency vertical vibration have been shown to have risks that violate OSHA standards for industrial exposure.

However, Lifetimevibe accelerates gradually, using a gentle, oscillating motion similar to walking. The ability to adjust frequency as slow as the user desires increases safety and virtually eliminates the risks of the vibration plate.

Here are a few well-researched benefits of vibration plate exercises:

  • Increased Muscle Strength
  • Muscle Growth
  • Casues Rapid Muscle Contractions
  • Weight Loss
  • Reduce Body Fat
  • Increase Bone Mineral Density
  • Inreased Blood Flow
  • Reduce High Blood Pressure

Arthritis

Vibration Plates and Arthritis

Vibration platforms can reduce pain and disability by improving local circulation to the painful area. They can even reverse the effects naturally. For example, using a modified push up on a vibration platform has shown to help with hand neural efficiency for patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (Lacerda et al., 2019). Routine whole body vibration therapy can provide stretching exercise of connective tissues. This can give effective and sometimes immediate relief of arthritis and rheumatism.

The vibrations from Lifetimevibe deliver mechanical loading to the skeletal muscles. This increases strength and improving circulation and flexibility (Salmon et al., 2012) and “muscle strength increased significantly” (Trans et al., 2009). “New treatment methods like Whole Body Vibration training also seek to improve muscle coordination and thereby optimize affected joint loading” (Stein et al., 2010).

Back Pain

Vibration Machines and Back Pain

Routine whole body vibration therapy can provide effective relief of back pain. Back pain can make daily tasks and exercising difficult and painful. A common treatment of back pain is to stretch and strengthen the muscles in the back and core. Vibrtion machines can and strengthen connective tissues without straining them.

The frequent vibrations strengthes muscles to improve posture and spinal health to prevent and eliminate back pain. Back pain due to extended sitting decreased in workers of a 2017 study after vibration treatment (Kaeding et al., 2017).  Rittwinger also found vibration machines can reduce  chronic lower back pain (Rittweger et al., 2002).

Balance

Health Condition

Poor balance affects a wide variety of people, can be short-term or permanent, and can cause dizziness. About 30% of people over the age of 65 lose their balance and suffer a fall each year.

WHOLE BODY VIBRATION AND BALANCE

Whole body vibration has been found to improve balance (Sitjà-Rabert et al., 2012). Whole body vibration delivers mechanical loading to the skeleton, which increases bone mass and enhances muscle and skeletal control. As a result, balance, gait, and posture improve.

Often, those who suffer from imbalance don’t have the muscle strength and coordination to prevent them from falling. Whole Body Vibration can improve balance and increase muscular strength and power (Salmon et al., 2012). Whole body vibration can strengthen core and leg muscles and is a simple and effective form of exercise to help those suffering from imbalance to gain control.

Cellulite

Vibration Plates reduce cellulite

Cellulite is an unsightly fat deposit just under the skin, typically around the buttocks, thighs, and stomach. Cellulite is more common in women than men because men have thicker skin and different muscle, fat, and tissue distribution. With age and weight gain, fat cells enlarge and become dimpled and puckered. As fat tissue accumulates, fluid retention, toxin storage, and lack of circulation become problematic.

When circulation is blocked, cellular waste stagnates, and these tissues harden as the skin loses its elasticity. The puckering is caused by the shriveling, dimpling and adherence of the skin to tissues underneath.

Vibration Plate Exercise and Cellulite

Whole body vibration can help to reduce the unsightliness of cellulite. Whole body vibration can increase muscle tone. Toned muscles create a firm surface below the fat that makes skin appear smooth and tight. Whole body vibration can also improve circulation, carry oxygen to your cells and tissues, assist in flushing toxins, and increasing the production of collagen, resulting in a significant reduction of cellulite.

Whole body vibration will not instantly make cellulite disappear, but it can aid the process. Healthy eating and exercise is the most effective way to reduce body fat. Increased circulation helps remove fluid in collagen pockets of the connective tissue. During animal trials it was proven that whole body vibration helped reduce white fat and hepatic triglycerides in both old and young test agents (Reijne et al., 2016).

Circulation

How Vibration Machines can improve blood circulation

Without good circulation the feet or hands become numb or feel cold, joints and muscles become stiff and painful. Sometimes vericose veins and nerve pain develop, injuries take longer to heal, and arthritis can accelerate. Oxygen is so important to joint healing that sometimes medical professionals will inject oxygen directly into the joints with a needle. Rapid contraction of muscles and movement of joints can dilver this healing oxygen naturally, without needle injections.

VIBRATION Machine exercise AND OXYGEN CIRCULATION

When standing on the vibration plate the rhymic contractions of the muscles encourage blood circulation. Every capillary will be enlarged, so blood evenly flows into the smallest capillaries in the body.

This blood circulation improves the delivery and removal of metabolic waste. As waste products are removed more quickly the body recovers more rapidly. Whole body vibration increases the number of functional red blood cells and also increases the presence of white blood cells in the capillaries.

Incontinence

CONDITION

Incontinence is the lack of control over defecation and urination. Urinary and fecal discharge is controlled by the pelvic floor muscles. These are also called kegel muscles and sphincter muscles. These muscles are the “valves” that control the flow of fluids. Sphincter muscles control fecal discharge and kegel muscles control urine discharge from the bladder.

FULL VIBRATION PLATFORMS AND INCONTINENCE

Vibration plates have been shown to restore continence. (Guedes-Aguiar et al., 2019) Recent studies have shown that the rapid vibrations are effective in strengthening the pelvic floor muscle and reducing the severity of incontinence. (Farzinmehr et al., 2015) Healthy and strong sphincters and kegel muscles provide the pressure needed to control continence and prevent leakage.

This frequent vibration exercise strengthens the pelvic floor muscle and muscles involved in closing the bladder. Kegel exercises while on a vibration platform improve muscle tone by strengthening the muscles of the pelvic floor. The exercises are helpful for vaginal and uterine prolapse in women and for treating prostate pain in men.  Vibration platform exercise has also been shown to help patients regain continence after prostate cancer surgery. (Crevenna et al., 2017; Tantawy et al., 2019)

Insomnia

Vibratoin plate exercise and lack of sleep

Insomnia is a condition in which an individual has a hard time falling asleep and/or staying asleep. Insomnia can have many causes. These include illness, medications, habits, depression, lack of physical activity, and stress. Insomnia can be short-term or chronic. This lack of sleep can affect balance, weaken the immune system, and decrease resistance to disease.

VIBRATION PLATES AND INSOMNIA

Studies have shown that vibration platforms can help reduce stress and may be a helpful treatment for insomnia.(Tuomi et al., 2016) Sleeping habits, stress, and lack of physical activity can all contribute to insomnia. Standing on a vibrating plate contracts most body muscles and can help to relieve built up stress.

Knee Pain

Reduce knee pay with exercise

Knee pain is a common complaint for many many people. There are several factors that can cause pain in the knee. It can be related to the knee joint or around the knee. Some pain is commonly caused by overusing the knee or suddenly injuring it.

Knee pain can come from an injury, a sprain, or tear. It can come from a disease like osteoarthritis or from inflammation such as bursitis. It can be a deformity or a syndrome, such as runnerʼs knee.

Whole body Vibration Plate for Knee Pain

Whole body vibration has helped improve the symptom of pain in the knee in some people. It is low impact and stresses the bone tissue just enough to cause it to increase in mass and density. Whole body vibration eliminates the trauma to sensitive joints and tendons that often makes conventional exercise intolerable.

Speak with a medical professional for the cause of the pain.

Improve Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic System: The Body’s Immune Response

The Human lymphatic system, much like the blood vessels and arteries in our body, runs all through the body. This system is a complex one, and has three main missions. It carries away excess fluids in the body, it carries away fat and fatty acids to the circulatory system for removal, and it is the central part of what most people call “the immune system.” Obviously, the lymphatic system’s health is vitally important to overall health.

The lymphatic system has been recognized by doctors for its importance to preventative healthcare. Lymphatic function supports every other system in the body, including the immune, digestive, detoxification, and nervous systems. Many believe that poor lymph health is the underlying cause of a lot of conditions, from cellulite to cancer.

The lymphatic system has no central pump but depends on muscle contraction and manual manipulation to move fluid. Deep breathing is one way we can enhance movement of lymph through our bodies, but our lymphatic system is best stimulated by movement of the body. The reason that clusters of lymph nodes are located in the arm pits, the groin, and other constantly moving areas is for that reason. As we age we become less active, and the normal stimulation needed by lymph nodes to pump lymph fluid around the body, filter it, rejuvenate it, and attack biological intruders is not as effective. It is one of the reasons that older people are more susceptible to illness.

Whole Body Vibration and the Lymphatic System

Full body vibration therapy contracts 95% of the muscles in the body at once. This movement allows lymphatic fluid to move into and out of the lymph nodes. With these rapid muscle contractions, lymph nodes can drain efficiently, moving white blood cells throughout the body and expelling toxins, bacteria, and viruses.

This movement gives the body better defenses against illnesses because the immune system is strengthened. LifetimeVibe vibration plate exercise is especially helpful for the aging body where lymphatic circulation is especially vital to overall health.

Vibration exercise machines improve your lymphatic health

“The vibrations created by a vibration exercise machine create small muscular contractions. This forces the fluids through the body in a way that is efficient, constant, and gentle enough not to cause any harm while being forceful enough to discard toxins and other potentially dangerous buildup.”

“ … Whole Body Vibration, facilitated by a machine, is able to help combat the effects of a sedentary lifestyle and rid the body of the toxins that it has stored.”

“In addition to acting as a catalyst for Lymphatic drainage, a vibration exercise machine also sparks the activity of the Lymph Nodes, which are key components of the immune system.”

“Though the loss is not drastic, using a vibration exercise machine allows the Lymphatic System to push stored fats out of the body, resulting in a healthier, leaner figure.”

Muscle Strength

Stronger Muscles from vibration exercise

Muscle strength prevents injury to joints. If you trip or become unbalanced, muscles will help you recover.

Unfortunately, very few people activate all of the muscles in the body enough. Many are sedentary much of the time and the muscles don’t get the movement they need to stay strong. Even when we do exercise, most often, only some of the body is moving actively, leaving at least some muscles to decay and weaken.

Athlete Upper Body Strength training

Lifetimevibe vibration plate is excellent for building core and upper body strength. Iron Cowboy James Lawrence uses the machine for world record effort recovery.

 

VIBRATION PLATES AND MUSCLE STRENGTH

Whole body vibration stimulates 95% of the muscles at once. As muscles move, they demand oxygen, requiring circulation to increase throughout the entire body. Sometimes muscles are  brought into use for the first time in years. This increased strength and full body circulation is a wonderful tool for anti-aging.

With strong muscles you can live a longer healthier life. Lifetimevibe vibration machines prevent muscle loss related to the aging process by activating virtually every muscle in the body without overload. The gentle vibrations do this without adding strain on joints, ligaments and tendons.

Athletes also find that this rapid activation allows more of the fast twitch muscle fibers to activate. Bringing a wider variety of muscle fibers into use can increase both strength and endurance.

“The adaptations to Whole Body Vibration found in the present study may be of use in counteracting the loss of muscle strength and mobility associated with age-induced sarcopenia.”

Neck Pain

What Causes Neck Pain

Many people suffer from muscle tension or pain in the joints in the neck. This can cause headaches, discomfort, and lack of mobility. This stiffness can be caused by injury, but also is often a result of lack of movement and exercise in the neck.

Vibration Plate Exercise and Neck Pain

Many vibration plates, such as Powerplate, use a vertical, or linear vibration, in which the platform jumps up and down vertically all at once. This can make neck pain worse because all of the vibration movement is driving straight up the spine and neck.

Lifetimevibe, by contrast, moves like a see-saw or teeter-totter, so that the spine and neck are moving, but not jarring straight up and down. Also, unlike other machines, Lifetimevibe can easily be adjusted to a comfortable speed by moving the feet and turning the center knob.

As a result, the gentle vibration movements improve circulation and joint movement without increasing pain. The movements also bring healing oxygen into the neck joints to help the body naturally heal and recover.

This relaxation and flexibility also helps reduce pain by the release of endorphins, encephalin and other pain-reducing neuro-chemicals.

Neuropathy

Neuropathy: Painful legs and feet

Neuropathy is a group of diseases that cause the dysfunction or damage to one or more nerves. This can cause weakness, pain, tingling, and/or numbness in the extremities. Common forms of neuropathy include Peripheral, Autonomic, and Diabetic neuropathy. Pain can vary from slight numbness, mild tingling, or severe pain. This can cause loss of coordination and balance due to the numbness and pain in the legs and feet.

More than 20 million people in the United States have Neuropathy. This includes 60-70% of diabetics (Kernich, 2001). Many treatments seek to subdue the effects temporarily, but often are ineffective in curing the disease. Whole body vibration is an all-natural treatment which can provide relief for many cases.

WHOLE BODY VIBRATION AND NEUROPATHY

Vibration machines can improve blood flow, and heal and strengthen the body. Hong found that exercising on a vibration plate decreased pain and improved balance of neuropathy patients with type II Diabetes (Junggi Hong, 2011).

In another study, vibration exercises improved symptoms for people with neuropathy and diabetes.  This improvement came because patients had increased blood flow, providing oxygen and healing (Johnson et al., 2014).

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis: Reduced Bone Density

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mass density, as well as rapid bone deterioration and/or brittleness. Osteoporosis increases the risk of bone fractures especially in the hips, ribs, spine and wrists.

VIBRATION PLATES AND OSTEOPOROSIS

Exercise is essential for someone with Osteoporosis. Weight and resistance training exercises minimize bone fragility. However, it can be difficult to exercise with osteoporosis, and simple movements can sometimes cause fracturing. Careful, calculated exercise can prevent injury and maximize benefits.

Whole body vibration therapy is a promising treatment for people with Osteoporosis. Low-impact whole body vibration delivers mechanical loading to the skeleton. This  exercise can increase bone mass and improve balance (Rubin et al., 2001). Animal studies have also shown vibration platforms improves bone growth and especially when used in conjunction with prescribed medications (Stuermer et al., 2014).

Using a vibration plate in conjunction with other medicinal treatments have also helped women with post-menopause osteoporosis. It has been proven to be a safe and effective way for women with osteoporosis to exercise and prevent further bone deterioration (Iwamoto et al., 2012; Swe et al., 2016).

Similarly, whole body vibration has been used to help astronauts. NASA found astronauts using vibration platforms maintained bone mass while in space. They also recovered more quickly after returning home (Barry, 2001).

Plantar Fasciitis

Pain from the bottom of the foot

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the ligaments (fascia) on the bottom of the foot that connect the heel bone to the toes. Under normal circumstances, your plantar fascia acts like a shock-absorber, supporting the arch in your foot. When overused or over-pressured, the fascia can tear. Repetitive tearing can irritate or inflame the fascia.

VIBRATION MACHINES AND PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Inflammation is caused by an accumulation of acids that congregate as the body tries to repair the torn ligaments. Common treatments for plantar fasciitis are stretching and massage therapy. The vibrating platform provides rapid massage and increased circulation to accelerate healing. Resting a foot on the vibration plate can also help to strengthen ligaments and muscles in the foot (Stein et al., 2010).

Stress

Stress-A hidden cause of disease

Some research has reported that stress is responsible for 80 to 90 percent of disease. Whatever our age and situation, we all have stress in our everyday life. Whole body vibration can perform like a drug-free medicine. It is a very effective tool to reduce the experience of stress.

LIFETIMEVIBE VIBRATION PLATE AND STRESS RELIEF

Whole body vibration feels good! The motion relieves pain, improves circulation, and helps stimulate positive hormones.

It has a positive effect on the production of serotonin the happy hormone. Cortisol, the stress hormone is balanced, thus a decrease in stress levels and depression. The massaging effect of the vibrations initiates an increase in dopamine and serotonin levels.

 REFERENCES

“It has been clinically demonstrated that Whole body Vibration training has a positive effect on the production of hormones and neurotransmitters. The massaging effect of the vibrations initiates an increase in dopamine and serotonin levels. This suggests a decrease in stress levels and depression. After training, patients feel relaxed and feel good.”

TMJ and Tension Headaches

Health Condition

TMJ, short for Temporomandibular Joint, is a hinge joint that connects the back of the jaw to the temporal bone of the skull just in front of each ear. This joint along with the surrounding soft tissues of muscles and ligaments aids in the ability to open and close the jaw during talking, chewing, and yawning.

This is he most active joint of the body, moving as much as 2,000 times per day? When this joint becomes misaligned, the result can often be popping or clicking when opening the jaw. Eventually, this improper motion can lead to pain around the joint, jaw-locking, or headaches.

LifetimeVibe Vibration Machines and TMJ

Whole body vibration can improve symptoms of TMJ as the movements help improve flexiliby of the muscles connecting the jaw to the skull. The rapid vibration helps bring oxygen circulation to the joints and improve movement that can reduce pain in this hinge joint.

Vericose Veins

Weak Leg Circulation: Vericose Veins

Varicose veins are diseased blood vessels that have become permanently dilated and can no longer efficiently carry blood back to the heart which can result in pain, swelling, inflammation, skin ulcers, and blood clots.

Whole Body Vibration exercises, in many instances, yield quick and visible results. After only ten minutes on a Whole Body Vibration platform one often sees that the skin of the lower leg is colored pink. This is a sign that the blood vessels in that area are open and circulation is returning. Some people report feeling a ‘tingly’ sensation after the exercise that results as the blood starts following again.

Bulging and painful varicose veins are caused by valve leakage in the blood vessels. Due to gravity, blood would normally flow back into the lower extremities. The only way the body is able to pump the blood back to the heart is using these valves, preventing the blood from flowing back down and “pooling” in the ankles and feet. A Whole Body Vibration machine greatly stimulates the circulation of blood thus increasing the oxygen levels substantially. This in turn will improve the return flow of the blood to the heart if the vibration exercises are done on a regular basis.

LIFETIMEVIBE VIBRATION PLATE AND VERICOSE VEINS

Whole body vibration exercise stimulates production of collagen, which, along with keratin, is responsible for skin strength and elasticity. Collagen is the primary component of connective tissues and gives bones the elastic quality that improves fracture resistance. Collagen also strengthens blood vessels and improves venous return–both of which help prevent spider veins and the more serious varicose veins.

“It turns out that Whole Body Vibration can not only stimulate circulation but also helps with the production of collagen, which, along with Keratin, helps promote improved skin strength and elasticity. Collagen also acts as the primary component for connected tissues and strengthens blood vessels, which can in turn prevent varicose veins from occurring.”

Weight Loss and Obesity

Whole Body Vibration and weight loss

Vibration plate exercise encourages weight loss. If you have been unsuccessful at losing weight, you have probably tried numerous fad diets that count calories, carbs, proteins, have good fat or bad fat. The real key to weight loss is to burn more body energy or calories than we eat.

Our body needs to use the energy currently available, the meal we last digested, and then begin burning stored energy, fat! The stored energy of the fat cell is released and now becomes part of our muscular movement.

The body’s fat burning engine, or metabolism, is put into high gear when we have more muscle movement. As we move, more fat cells are transformed into muscle. Our metabolism continues to rise and burn even more calories.

Lifetimevibe weight loss exercises

Whole body vibration contracts and releases nearly every muscle in our bodies numerous times per second. The movement helps burn calories, build stronger muscle and increases metabolism.

As you use whole body vibration you will have more energy because you have raised your metabolic rate. You will begin to look for and enjoy other physical activities that you may have given up. This will burn even more calories.

Whole body vibration, also balances the hormones that the body needs to burn fat. It raises your resting metabolic rate, increases muscle tone, is easy on your joints and most of all it makes you feel good.
