Your joints allow you to perform a wide variety of movements painlessly and without restriction. Maintaining healthy bones and joints throughout your life can dramatically reduce your risk of suffering joint or bone diseases as well as joint issues due to normal wear and tear.
Improving joint health is a great way to support your muscle health as well. Your body would not enjoy the easy mobility and structural support necessary for internal organ health without the benefits of normal skeletal health.
WHAT CAUSES JOINT PAIN?
Joint pain affects two kinds of joints: synovial and cartilaginous joints. Composed of cartilage, ligaments and lubricating synovial fluid, your synovial joints are at the knee, elbow, shoulder, hip and anywhere else that you can bend or flex.
Alternately, your cartilaginous joints are attached via ligaments and fibrous discs that allow limited movements. Examples of cartilaginous joints include your spinal vertebrae and your sacrum/hip joint.
Joint pain occurs when joint tissues suffer inflammation, trauma, degeneration or infection. Common causes of joint pain include:
- All forms of arthritis
- Sprains and strains
- Sedentary lifestyle
Although pain medications such as NSAIDS or prescription pain relievers may help joint pain temporarily, these medications do nothing to treat the root cause of your joint pain. Additionally, taking NSAIDs daily carries the risk of causing gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea, nausea and irritable bowel syndrome.
JOINT PAIN AND VIBRATION THERAPY
Whole body vibration is a holistic approach to relieving joint pain. It safely contracts your body’s muscles to stimulate their natural stretch reflex. Producing effects similar to the way your doctor taps your knee to test your reflexes, the Vibrosaun machine generates vibrations that repeatedly activate muscle spindles (cells). These vibrations “trick” your body into making it feel as if you are falling, which triggers a stress reflex causing rapid contractions of your muscles.
In fact, using Vibrosaun’s joint pain vibration platform just 10 minutes a day while performing simple movements that transfer therapeutic vibrations to your joints can:
- Increase nutrient-rich blood flow to your painful joint tissues
- Improve lymphatic drainage to remove joint toxins and relieve inflammation
- Fortify cartilage health
- Support optimal bone and joint health
- Support production of synovial fluid to improve range of motion
Maintaining well-lubricated joints is vital to your overall health, and it increases your likelihood of remaining physically active. Although hormones, genetics, and liver and kidney functioning all impact your bone health, regularly using Vibrosaun can help support your joint flexibility, maintain normal cartilage health, and promote joint and bone health as you enter your senior years.
