Benefits of Kwikfit4u Whole Body Vibration : Arthritis
Conventional exercise can be very painful for those who suffer from arthritis. Because of this, low impact exercise is very important for people with arthritis and may be one of the only forms of exercise they are able to tolerate. When exercising, arthritis patients need to focus on certain movements and an overall balanced workout for their whole body, not just the area affected by arthritis. A common error is to focus on just the area that is in pain. This can be a big mistake because it will throw the body’s balance off, potentially overworking the problem area, and can actually perpetuate the arthritis causing inflammation or even cartilage deterioration.
It is extremely important to focus on range of motion, strengthening, and aerobic benefits when exercising to relieve the symptoms and treat the arthritic condition. Traditionally a rebounder (aka: mini trampoline) is generally recommended for a light workout. When bouncing lightly on the rebounder it helps to increase blood oxygenation and circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage. Whole Body Vibration can provide even better results, but with less effort and in a much shorter amount of time. For example: when simply standing on a Whole Body Vibration platform muscles throughout are contracting and relaxing multiple times per second in response to the vibrations. This is like jumping numerous times per second on a rebounder! The Whole Body Vibration stimulus travels straight up through the entire body. The whole bodyweight is being used and mobilized to prompt the circulation of lymphatic fluids. This provides superior benefits to a rebounder and in only ten minutes and with no strain at all.
It has been proven that exercise can reduce pain and disability by decreasing muscle inhibition and by improving blood circulation. But, regular, moderate physical activity is an essential part of an arthritis care plan. Unfortunately, those that have arthritis may not always feel like moving and are not able (or willing) to adhere to an exercise regimen due to the bodily discomfort associated with working out. The more difficult the exercise, the less likely they will attempt to do it. Whole Body Vibration therapy is particularly suited for these people because it thoroughly exercises the whole postural system. Whole Body Vibration equipment is easy to use, the workout sessions are short and most importantly, it is safe. Whole Body Vibration exercise is a great means to relieve arthritis pain and suffering, quite possibly reversing the condition naturally.
Among other things, it helps people with arthritis to:
Increase flexibility Reduce stiffness and inflammation Strengthen muscles around joints Achieve long-term pain relief
Moderate exercise improves more than just arthritis symptoms. It reduces the risk of other health conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease. It can also boost your energy level and sense of well-being, help you sleep better, and make weight control easier. Your program should include both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities. In addition, flexibility exercises may ease joint stiffness.
Once you start exercising with a Whole Body Vibration platform, start with only a few minutes and go slow. Then, gradually increase the time on the vibration plate and frequency of the oscillations. This gives your body time to adjust to your new activity level.
Whole Body Vibration is a great option to relieve arthritis pain and suffering, quite possibly even reversing the effects naturally.
In Conclusion: Whole Body Vibration is not limited to arthritis sufferers alone, it allows people suffering from a variety of ailments to get their needed physical activity levels increased while staying within their personal physical abilities. You may not be able to go for brisk walks or even climb stairs but Whole Body Vibration stimulates your muscles very effectively by just standing on the vibrating platform; thereby increasing your blood circulation and providing the necessary oxygenation to all cells in your body including your brain. Physical activity is the key to providing the oxygenation your body needs to function properly, enabling anyone to achieve and maintain an optimal state of health and wellness.
