With all of our new changes at Exodus comes some new equipment. One of our goals is to stay up-to-date on the current science, technology, and studies on chiropractic health. This means bringing the things that we learn as doctors to better help the patient, you!
Through lots of study, research, and learning from other experts, we have brought in some new equipment. One of the news pieces you’ll see in the office is the Vibe plate.
This new addition is pretty much what it sounds like – a vibratory plate. The plate utilizes motion (proprioceptors) to stop your stress response.
How does it work?
The vibration from the plate stimulates your brain (cerebellum), which allows your body to return to rest – it “cages the tiger” – and recreates a new healthy pathway for the body to properly adapt and recover. The vibration allows for proper strengthening and retraining of the spinal cord while maintaining accurate communication of the Brain and Tissue Cells.
The Vibe plate increases blood flow throughout your body, increases lymphatic drainage, and increases the release of endorphins. The vibration stimulates your muscles while having little impact on your joints and ligaments.
The plate also lowers your stress hormone, Cortisol, which can prevent your body from healing properly. Finally, the Vibe Plate helps train your sense of equilibrium, helping with balance.
All of these benefits in short, help your body recover more quickly and increase your overall health.
Why do we use it?
At Exodus, we use the Vibe Plate to help retrain and facilitate your Nervous System’s ability to adapt and recover to stress and the environment. One example of this adapting and recovering is that the plate helps decrease soreness and muscle pain while accelerating the recovery of muscles. When your body can do this, it can express health better and you can live a fuller life.
