Whole Body Vibration @ The Spinal Centre

Whole Body Vibration

Get Better Results From Your Care.

One of the key components missing from most Chiropractic Clinics is Rehab. Physiotherapists, on the other hand, may have fantastic rehab – but alas are often unable to provide the corrections to restore normal Spinal Biomechanics.

To assist in our Rehabilitation Programs we use a number of different devices, physical therapies, exercise therapies, mirror image exercises, Spinal remodelling and traction equipment.

One of the most popular, and evidenced based machines, used to assist You in Your recovery is Whole Body Vibration (WBV).

WBV can be used to assist with virtually all strength, stretching and rehabilitation programs. The 3D Vibrational Technology provided by our medical grade plates is quite impressive in its ability to help you recover faster, improve your flexibility and stimulate muscles you never thought you had!
