If you have been suffering from painful spinal problems caused by nerve pressure in the spinal cord, we have a solution you probably were not even aware of. Here at Gold Coast Chiropractic in Cardiff by the Sea & Encinitas, we employ everything from traditional adjustment techniques to the most advanced technologies to help our patients with pain relief and posture correction. We would like to introduce you to one of the most innovative of these technologies -- whole body vibration, also known as WBV.

Decompression and Posture Correction,  Vibrate Your Way to Spinal Health


Whole body vibration represents a new frontier for the chiropractor, but the original technology goes back over 40 years. Originally developed in Russia to help its athletes train and its cosmonauts rehabilitate from the muscular atrophy and bone loss that accompanies space flight, this therapeutic technology applies vibration to stimulate the body's natural healing process. The patient lies on our special Spinal Rejuvenation Therapy (SRT) table for the procedure. The vibration relaxes tight muscles that might otherwise inhibit spinal decompression, allowing that painful pressure to fall away from your nerves more quickly and easily. As a result, a typical spinal decompression session with WBV may take only 15 minutes, as opposed to 30 minutes or more without the assistance of WBV.

During your session on the SRT table we supply you with extra oxygen. This might seem like an odd touch, but we do it because oxygen, together with glucose, fuels your body and brain. As we age, our ability to make full use of oxygen tends to decline. The additional oxygen ramps your body up to its optimum healing capacity.

In addition to its remarkable work as an aid to spinal decompression, WBV also adds a whole new twist to posture correction. In this variation on the technique, patients perform isometric exercises using head, shoulder and hip weights while standing on a vibrating platform. The additional stimulus from the vibration boosts endocrine activity and blood flow while reducing back pain, boosting the effect of the workout for enhanced posture correction and improved spinal cord strength. A stronger spine with better muscular support is less prone to injury, re-injury, or the slow accumulation of misalignment issues that brought you to our clinic in the first place. Our goal is not just to make you well but to help you stay that way!

In keeping with the general spirit of chiropractic treatment, whole body vibration is safe, gentle, non-invasive and produces significant pain relief and wellness benefits in a short amount of time -- without any need for medications or other traditional stopgaps.
