Once we start correcting your spine through chiropractic adjustments, it is very important that we start a rehabilitation program. We will design a stretching and strengthening program specific to your condition. This will allow you to help stabilize the foundation of your spine, therefore optimizing progress which will allow you to heal faster and feel better longer.
At Livingston County Chiropractic Center, we provide a wide range of physical rehabilitation strategies, including electrical stimulation therapy, intersegmental traction, cold-laser therapy, vibration plate and more.
Vibration therapy is a form of therapy that uses whole body vibration to enhance physical health and well-being. Vibration therapy was first used in the Russian Space program to assist Astronauts to increase their muscle strength and enhance their bone density while in space. They found that they could then stay up to 420 days in space with little or no gravity effects whereas their American colleagues had to return to earth after 120 days.
The medical benefits and advantages of vibration therapy as testified by medical professionals that use the VibePlate, are tremendous. Vibration therapy and exercise on the VibePlate is becoming an everyday part of their rehab and therapy programs. Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is being accepted world wide by major medical, rehabilitation and therapeutic centers throughout the world, as well as our United States Military.
The benefits of a vibration plate is not only the stimulation on your musculature but also your internal organs and glands, including your brain. Subsequently, research has shown vibration plate can help with the following:
- Increase muscle strength, especially explosive strength
- Pain reduction (such as with fibromyalgia)
- Increase hormone secretion: IGF-1, testosterone, and human growth hormone (HGH)
- Counteract age-related muscle wasting
- Increase fat loss
- Increase bone mass and mineral density, thereby decreasing risk of osteoporosis
- Improve in blood circulation, which can also stimulate tissue healing.
- Increase flexibility and mobility
- Increase secretion of serotonin and
- Improve proprioception and balance
- Increase lymphatic drainage
- Decrease cortisol levels
- Speed up recovery from injury
- Improve fitness in the elderly
- Improve neurological conditions
Correct cervical lordosis,as defined by numerous research studies, has been shown to prevent nerve, ligament, and muscle damage, relieve pain, and improve overall health. Car accidents, falls, and poor posture all contribute to abnormal Cervical Lordosis, putting a patient at greater risk of adverse nerve, ligament, and muscle function. Ultimately, abnormal Cervical Lordosis may lead to a number of health-related disorders.
Cervical Posture Pump
This neck pump is portable posture pump disc hydrator for the home, office, or travel. It decompresses joints and expands disc height. Decreases disc bulging as well as shapes and restores the cervical curve. It restores range of motion and gets to the cause of neck pain and stiffness. Cervical Traction helps to restore proper neck biomechanics and return normal function to the spine, preventing degenerative processes. This helps eliminate neck pain and headaches, allowing you to feel like yourself!
