Using Whole-Body Vibration in Millersville and Crofton, MD, for Pain Relief
Whole-body vibration (or WBV) is a form of both therapy and exercise that’s easy and relaxing for a patient to experience at Effective Integrative Healthcare.
The History of WBV Treatments
The science behind WBV has been around for over 40 years, and the effects of WBV are remarkable. The equipment we use for WBV treatments leverages vertical, oscillating, and elliptical vibrations depending on your physical needs to create the right movement from the right machines for the best results. Beyond sports and fitness, WBV has a role in physical therapy, chiropractic care, and pain management, as well. Some research indicates that WBV administered correctly and under trained medical supervision can help patients:
- Reduce Back Pain
- Improve Strength and Balance in Senior Citizens
- Slow Degenerative Bone Loss

What Are the Benefits of WBV Therapy?
For postmenopausal woman and people suffering from osteoporosis, WBV has been shown to help increase bone density. WBV also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite and varicose veins.
WBV will also help people with poor flexibility, especially for those who have tight muscles or who experienced a car accident and suffer from a loss of range of motion. For people with injuries, WBV will enhance rehabilitation by increasing blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body. If this describes you, then we recommend you take a few minutes to learn more about therapy options for accident-related injuries on our Auto Accident Treatment page.
Most of our patients who have heard of WBV know of this treatment in terms of a fitness or weight loss aid. WBV as a fitness routine does help improve muscle strength by contracting the muscles 20 to 50 times per second, which in turn will also give positive cardio effects. Vibration exercise in conjunction with a healthy diet will aid in accelerating weight loss, leads to increases in energy, improves relaxation, and enhances wellness and detoxification.
