Whole Body can be an Essential Part to Treating Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s Disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that causes shaking, rigidity, and slowness of movement/walking, among other symptoms. With Whole Body Vibration therapy, improvements with motor skills and a decrease in tremors and rigidity scores can be achieved, according to the Institute of Sport Sciences (Goethe Germany, 2006).
Utilize the Whole Body Vibration machine in a position that’s suitable to your condition, including any pre-set programs and speeds. We suggest starting at a lower speed and increasing it gradually until you’re comfortable. Start with 1-3 minute sessions several times a day and increase time and speeds as tolerated.
