Is pain getting in the way of your getting back into shape? Are you suffering from an injury but still insist on keeping yourself fit? Here’s good news, you can now choose to go for Power Plate therapy.
The Power Plate is one the most ingenious innovations in exercise technology. It basically consists of a platform that vibrates to different settings as you exercise or perform stretches on it. The high-speed vibrations stimulate the muscles, causing them to contract and then relax.
Power Plate machines make use of the acceleration training principle. The Power Plate machines oscillate in the X, Y and Z planes, exactly as the human body would do during a normal exercise. The only difference is that with the Power Plate the oscillations are so rapid your muscles are forced to perform multiple reflexive actions, sometimes as much as between 25 to 50 times per second.
This kind of therapy increases your strength gains by forcing your muscles to work harder than they would under the usual weight bearing exercises. This therapy also intensifies your workout, letting you do an hour’s workout in half hour. You can get a lot more out of your exercise in less the time.
Power Plate therapy is particularly good for those who suffer from pain or injuries because it can still strengthen and condition the muscles even when a full range of physical motion is not possible due to the injury or pain.
At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation we have Power Plate machines and a Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation staff member who knows how a workout can best benefit your body. You can have great results in sessions as short as 15 to 30 minutes a day and as little as three times a week.
