Power Plate, a remarkable Advanced Vibration Technology backed by over forty years of research and on-going scientific studies is available by appointment at Scituate Harbor Chiropractic. The Power Plate is one of the most unique fitness and rehabilitation devices on the market today.
Used by the top medical centers, sports teams, elite training facilities and health clubs, Power Plate's technology has been proclaimed as "One of the fastest growing fitness trends since spinning." (Muscle & Fitness, April 2003). It is safe, easy and effective for anyone to use. It has applications ranging from sports conditioning to training elderly and sedentary individuals. In the short training time of only 10 minutes a day, three times a week, Power Plate will allow you to achieve a new level of health, fitness and sports performance. It's easy to use, non-invasive equipment that anyone can use – regardless of age or condition.
Advanced Vibration Technology
Advanced Vibration Technology exploits the body's innate reflexive response to disruptions in stability in order to stimulate enhanced muscle strength and performance. Simply put, the Power Plate produces a vibration through which energy is transferred to the body. This stimulus produces a stretch reflex which, depending on the frequency, results in rapid and intense muscle contractions 30-50 times per second.
Vibration training on the Power Plate offers a host of benefits such as considerably improving muscle strength, flexibility, range of motion, bone density and stimulating blood circulation. Additionally, studies have proven Power Plate's ability to reduce muscle pain and soreness, and expedite the recovery of damaged muscles and tendons.
Just as the leg kicks forward involuntarily when the doctor strikes the lower knee to test reflexes, the body's muscles engage in an involuntary reflexive contraction in response to vibration's disruption in stability. The body's reaction to this mechanical stimulus is all natural and occurs involuntarily at the neural level.
How And Why It Works
Exercise causes the body to tire; rest allows the body to recover. By repeating this process, the body adjusts to the level of effort, resulting in an increase in physical performance. This phenomenon, called super-compensation, similarly occurs when training on the Power Plate. However, compared with traditional training methods, greater results are achieved and hormonal production is increased in much less time.
Each set is performed no longer than 30, 45, or 60 seconds in length, and training sessions on the Power Plate need to be performed no more than 3 to 4 times per week with each session lasting about 10 minutes.
The benefits of the Power Plate's Advanced Vibration Technology are considerable, as evidenced by its acceptance by major medical, rehabilitation and therapeutic centers across the country (click here for detailed benefits). It can enhance an individual's general well being and quality-of-life regardless of age, medical, neurological or physical condition.
Vibration training on the Power Plate is used to substantially:
- Improve muscle strength and performance
- Increase flexibility and range of motion
- Enhance critical blood flow throughout the body (oxygenation and lymph drainage)
- Increase secretion of hormones that are important in regeneration and repair processes, such as HGH (Human Growth Hormone), IGF-1, and testosterone.
- Increase bone density
- Increase of the happiness hormone serotonin and neurotrophine, a substance that supports our thinking process.
- Decrease cortisol levels
- Rehabilitate injuries and ailments
- Enhance explosive strength
- Enhance conventional training results
- Speed training recovery
- Accelerate weight loss
- Reduce lower back pain
- Enhance pain reduction
- Improve collagen production
- Reduce appearance of cellulite
- Eliminate the effects of stress
The Power Plate with its revolutionary Advanced Vibration Technology offers a solution that will not only improve the quality of life day-to-day, but ultimately add precious years as well.
