Vibration therapy is an emerging phenomena in North America that Dr. Roger Berton and Lana Berton have extensively reviewed. While it is relatively new to North America, whole body vibration exercise therapy has been researched for over 40 years. In fact, it was originally designed to treat Russian astronauts suffering from bone and lean muscle mass loss after spending extended time in weightless environments. Shortly after, Russian Olympic athletes took advantage of whole body vibration exercise to improve recovery times and to boost power and strength.
During the early 1990s further research validated the effects of Whole Body Vibration technology after it was introduced to Europe. In North America the technology has quickly gained acceptance and is now used by universities, professional sports teams, and health professionals in the rehabilitation and medical fields.
While objectively researching, Dr. Berton and Lana Berton discovered an extremely wide variety of Whole Body Vibration therapy machines. Based on several factors including vibration motions, quality, and performance they discovered not all whole body vibration machines are created equally. To ensure the patients at Berton Physiotherapy and Chiropractic receive maximized therapeutic results, the clinic is equipped with a new cutting edge vibration therapy machine that is gentle on the joints of the body. The Progression Fitness PV2690 Vibration Trainer is one of the most effective using tri-planar technology with up to 50HZ of intensity. In addition the manufacturer of the machine, Progression Fitness is a big believer in the benefits of vibration training. It was among the first companies to bring the machines and new technologies main stream.
