It was fascinating to learn how my muscles were pulling on my bones, and how this facilitated a weight bearing as well as muscle toning exercise for my entire body.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
Hypervibe, a leader in whole body vibration machines, today released the testimonial of one client who took action to protect her active lifestyle after her diagnosis with osteoporosis. Cydya Smith, 62, saw significant bone density improvement after using Hypervibe’s whole body vibration machines.
Skydiving and horseback riding- activities that are certainly not recommended for those suffering from osteoporosis - but Smith lived her life poised at the brink of these and other thrilling pastimes. That was until she learned one day that she would be joining more than 10 million other Americans with osteoporosis.
Smith recalls, “When my doctor told me I had severe osteoporosis, I was devastated. I had only decided to get a complete checkup, which included a bone scan, because I wanted to ensure that I was as healthy as I felt.”
According to Smith, obeying her doctor’s orders, she began a prescription medication regimen that would stay with her for the rest of her life. She was forced to stop all activities deemed “reckless.” She was forced to trade her exciting way of life for a bottle of pills and position that kept both feet firmly placed on the ground. A year of avidly taking her prescription passed and Smith found that she was merely maintaining her body’s new norm—so, against her doctor’s better judgment, she elected to take herself off the medication and began searching for alternate remedies to her decreasing bone density.
Smith’s search led her to the world of Whole Body Vibration (WBV), and to the doorstep of Equilibrium Physical Therapy in New York City. It was there that physical therapist, Gabriel Ettenson, MS, PT encouraged Smith to facilitate the use of the Hypervibe Vibration Platform for rehabilitation and physical fitness.
Smith says, “When I began treatment, I was most impressed by the level of care of the therapist, Gabriel Ettenson, who explained what was happening inside my body while I was vibrating on the platform. It was fascinating to learn how my muscles were pulling on my bones, and how this facilitated a weight bearing as well as muscle toning exercise for my entire body. I also learned about the neural connection, and how my brain was affected by this kind of exercise.”
WBV machines work by pairing gravity and resistance with the transmission of low frequency vibrations to the human body, resulting in several positive effects including increases in: muscle power and strength, tone, circulation, bone density, balance, flexibility, muscle and power strength. Users also report lack of injury because of the machines ability to “warm up” the body, as well as an after sport recovery aid.
For two years at 30 minutes a day, Smith performed exercises on the Hypervibe. When she visited her doctor’s office once more for an updated bone density test the results indicated an increase of 8.3 percent—a tremendous change, much to the chagrin of her doctor.
Smith touts her high recommendation for Hypervibe WBV to anyone looking for a way to stay healthy and fit - and most especially those looking for an alternate treatment for osteoporosis. She is also happy to report that she can once again resume her old pace and is pleased to find herself prescription free and healthier than ever.
