POWER PLATE THERAPY
At Tampa Knee Pain Center, We Offer The Innovative New Power Plate®
A technologically advanced and efficient way to improve patient well-being
Power Plate, the worldwide leader of whole body vibration therapy, provides a wide variety of benefits for users of any age and any physical condition. As a non-invasive modality, this technology addresses a broad range of debilitating symptoms and accelerates recovery time, for a quick return to normal daily functions.
Perfect for those of diverse backgrounds and physical conditions, the whole body vibration technology behind Power Plate provides health, recovery and rehabilitation benefits in a safe and effective way leading to improved quality of life.
A better way to treat rehabilitation and chronic pain
Power Plate has demonstrated dramatic benefits in-patient rehabilitation and in the management of chronic pain. Healthcare professionals have reported the following improvements:
- Improved blood circulation and lymphatic return
- Reduced pain, improved mood and increased activity level in patients with fibromyalgia
- Decreased overall and specific pain
- Faster recovery post stroke/CVA
Technology backed by research, proven by science
This technology has gained acceptance from major medical, rehabilitation, and therapeutic centers around the world because decades of research have gone into the creation of Power Plate products and training procedures.
Here’s how it works:
The vibration technology behind Power Plate enhances motor unit recruitment and synchronization resulting in increased force production and efficiency of movement.
Power Plate creates 25-50 vibrations per second forcing the body’s kinetic chain to respond each time, requiring stabilization, coordination, strength and endurance.
In response to the vibration stimulus, individuals can produce up to 95% of their voluntary force potential while performing safe and pain free movements. These positive outcomes are made possible by the multi-dimensional stimulation of the body’s natural reflex arc allowing sensory motor function to be created and developed at a subconscious level.
The vibrations produced by Power Plate trigger neurological responses in muscle, which stimulate sensory receptors to elicit a “tonic vibration reflex.” When using Power Plate, the recruitment threshold of motor units is lower when compared to threshold during voluntary muscular contraction. More importantly, involuntary contractions occur in response to the vibration stimulus. Therefore, patients with limited mobility can benefit just as much as patients who are more agile.
Simply stated, Power Plate works by delivering safe solutions for a variety of disease states and rehabilitating conditions. Healthcare professionals have successfully used Power Plate vibration technology to manage:
