Peterson Chiropractic has incorporated advanced technology known as Vibrational Therapy to increase circulation and rehabilitate patients quickly. Power Plates are three-dimensional vibration technology that transmits waves of energy, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second.
“Good for patients with Osteoporosis and Lymphedema, as well people looking for a challenging but painless abdominal workout, it works so quickly that most people only spend 5-10 minutes on the machine. Patients can be treated for lower extremity rehabilitation just standing on the Power Plate,” said Dr. Peterson.
Power Plate exercise improves ROM, increase bone density as well as reduces the appearance of cellulite. This type of a workout is also known as acceleration training. It was first introduced by Russian cosmonauts to reduce the effects of zero gravity in space.
Owner Nick Peterson D.C. was introduced to this new machine by his son Nicholas A. Peterson D.C., came back from sports centric Life University in Atlanta where the machines were used by all athletes as well as the coaches who wanted to stay fit without the high impact of most training regiments.
“After our patients are out of acute pain we start then on more active treatments like the Power Plate. It only takes a few minutes to feel the benefits of the vibrations and circulation immediately increases into muscles and joints,” said Nicholas Peterson.
“Many of our patients only have a few precious minutes to get a stretch and the vibration speeds a warm-up by involving 100%o of muscle fibers.
