Bethel Park, PA, June 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Red Apple Wellness & Chiropractic announced today it has a new weapon to combat chronic pain and fibromyalgia. The new technology known as full body vibration is used by chiropractic physicians to stimulate specific nerve receptors in the body known as joint mechanoreceptors. When stimulated, a joint mechanoreceptor sends an impulse into the brain and cerebellum (a relay center in the brain).
Red Apple Wellness & Chiropractic clinic director Dr. Kevin Smith explains: “Pain signals (also known as ‘nociception’) travels along a specific pathway in the spine. The same pathway is also used by a different type of sensory stimulation known as ‘proprioception’. When we stimulate these specific receptors with the full body vibration, it sends a flood of proprioception impulses along the same pathway, which decreases the nociception signals – the result is an amazing decrease or total elimination of pain!”
The full body vibration technology used at Red Apple Wellness & Chiropractic has been FDA cleared. It is safe to be used by practically everybody. Even so, prior to treatment, Dr. Smith does a comprehensive examination which incorporates orthopedic and neurological checks in order to establish a medical baseline as well as to find where the vibration therapy needs to be applied.
Full body vibration can be used with various types of exercises. The combinations of different exercises used is limitless. The full body vibration brings with it another dimension of benefit, regardless if the goal is strengthening, stabilization or enhancing flexibility or balance.
