  1. I have been involved in Vibration Therapy since 2008 & in the Fitness Industry since 1995. When using correct spec machines, studies have shown very positive results for many degenerative conditions including Parkinson’s. Please read below how the technology works in regard to Parkinson’s, I will post Three Clinical Studies in the coming days. Whole-body vibration therapy can improve overall motor control because it stimulates many muscles across your body. The activity generated by vibrations can make you stronger and increase the stability that muscles and joints naturally try to maintain, according to leading research. When looking specifically at Parkinson’s disease, researchers found that a vibration therapy machine was able to create improvements in every symptom they measured. Patients had fewer tremors, less rigidity in their joints and muscles and were able to perform fine motor function tasks better. Parkinson’s disease cannot be cured today, but doctors work hard to help patients control symptoms. Whole-body vibration therapy can play a major role in keeping muscles healthy and retaining control. Every reduction in tremors is a major win for any sufferer and their family. We’re excited to see how much sufferers will benefit as vibration therapy machines become part of standard therapy and long-term studies determine the full extent of its benefits.
