Vibrational Therapy Works! Weight Loss. T Special pricing March

VIBEPLATE™ VIBRATIONAL THERAPY GETTING TREMENDOUS RESULTS & WEIGHT LOSS!

We have been using the vibeplate™ for over a year now with tremendous results! In fact, I lost so much muscle during my 3 weeks hospital and bed rest time due to lo red blood cells that I am not strong enough for stair master. So I am utilizing the vibe plate as thousands of others are across the country … to rehab and strengthen 10 times faster and stronger just by standing on it!

That's right, research shows that you get up to 10 times more muscle gains from doing an exercise on a vibrational plate than from performing on solid ground! That means one set of squats on a vibeplate gives you the equivalent muscle building gain as 10 sets with out the vibeplate!!! If you do 10 sets on a vibeplate, you get the benefit of 100 sets without! How impressive is that???

The reason why vibratory therapy is so key n anti-aging and rehabilitation and weight loss is that every proprioceptor (millions of nerve receptors in every tendon and joint throughout your body that tell you where your body "is" in position if your eyes are closed) is stimulated massively simultaneously bombarding the brain with massive input and stimulation. Just this massive brain stimulation is itself the best anti-aging stimulation you can enjoy!

Research shows that people in nursing homes "bedridden" had vibeplates put under their feet with knees bent for varying periods of time. Their cognitive functions improved dramatically! Next they were able to sit up eventually and rest their feet on the vibeplate on the floor. Eventually they were able to stand with a walker on the vibeplate and really begin experiencing muscle and coordination gains where they could walk again with their walker and many went down to a cane! No drugs just vibrational therpy! If you have been to a nursing home, you know how important it is in later life to be autonomous and mobility is the key to be able to interact as a human with others.

The second half and why these people were able to walk again is the brain is being bombarded with massive input naturally sends out massive signals back to all the proprioceptors, muscles and tendons to strengthen up and build fast and furious doe to all this new stimulation! So toning happens at 10 times the normal response rate! So brain function, muscle building and weight loss all occur at up to 10 times faster utilizing vibrational therapy verses without!

You have likely seen TV commercials for Lilly's on Gunbarrel advertising the amazing effects of vibrational therapy. You do not even have to exercise to loose weight!!! Just stand on the plate for 10 minutes 3 times a day with knees bent or doing small bouncing motions and the same results occur! However, exercising on it works even faster! Imagine how much better a knee replacement would heal standing on a vibleplate and gradually increasing range of motion exercises with vibration would be?

I try to use the vibeplate for 5 minutes before I go play tennis and all stiffness is gone whereas it usually takes a full set of tennis for an hour before I am completely loose.

You have probably heard the vibeplate being used with patients I am treating Chiropractically and rehabbing. There is a whole series of exercises I teach patients for specific rehab of varying problems. It I actually neuromuscular re-education retraining and enhancing the brain and muscle connections and functionality. You do not have to be a Chiropractic patient to benefit from the vibeplate! Remember, 30 minutes a day can result in 30 lbs. per month coming off! We encourage people to take advantage of one of the few and the first vibeplate available in the greater Chattanooga area. We have special packages of vibeplate usage below. And if you want to buy one, we can get you a much better price for different models than retail stores in you decide to ivest in one. Talk to me about sizes and pricing.

$10 =                    per 10 minute Session by the visit

$80 =                    pre-pay for 12 vibeplate sessions

$120 =                  monthly fee to use unlimited 30 days (subject to office hours

and  availability)

Take advantage of these great natural  Vibrational Therapies and You will see the Differences too!!!

Research, Common Sense Say Conservative Treatments Before Spinal Fusion Surgery

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), in response to a recent government report and articles calling into question the rise in spinal fusion surgeries in the United States, strongly encourages patients and health care providers to consider the benefits of a conservative approach to back pain. "Research supports the use of more conservative treatments as a first-line defense against pain. This sensible approach not only reduces health care costs but also may help some patients avoid riskier treatments altogether," said ACA President Keith Overland, DC. Dr. Overland's comments follow the release in October of a report from the HHS Office of the Inspector General showing that hospitals that purchased spinal devices from physician-owned distributors (PODs) had higher rates of spinal surgeries than the rate of hospitals overall. The report noted that many hospitals rely on the surgeon’s preference when making purchasing decisions, and in some cases those surgeons have a financial stake in the companies selected. OIG findings show that using a POD did not reduce costs and those hospitals that did generally saw an increase in the number of surgeries performed—indicating clinical decision may have been affected by the business relationship. A related article published on Oct. 27 in the Washington Post reports that spinal fusion surgery in the United States has risen six-fold in the past 20 years, from 56,000 in 1994 to 465,000 in 2011. The Post analyzed 125,000 patient records in Florida and found that half the rise in spinal surgery cases in that state involved patients whose diagnoses would not normally make them candidates for the procedure. The article added that Medicare estimates more than $200 million was spent improperly on spinal fusions in 2011 because a conservative course of treatment had not been tried first. Medical guidelines for back pain recommend the use of conservative treatments. Likewise, a JAMA article published in April 2013 encourages patients with back pain to first try conservative treatments--exercises, physical therapy, chiropractic or acupuncture—and resort to surgery only when less invasive options fail. However, a study published earlier this year in JAMA Internal Medicine confirms that many physicians don't follow guidelines and instead refer back pain patients to surgery or write prescriptions for powerful pain killers.  The latter is part of an epidemic problem of prescription drug abuse in the United States; the number of prescriptions filled for opioid pain killers--some of the most powerful medications available--has increased by nearly 50 percent in the past 10 years to 257 million. Unintentional overdose deaths involving opioids now outnumber cocaine and heroin deaths combined. "It's important today for patients facing spine surgery to do their due diligence and ensure no stone is left unturned. There are effective, more conservative treatments that help many patients each year avoid surgery, lessen reliance on addictive pain killers, and get back to their normal lives and activities," said Dr. Overland.

"I Get Around."


That iconic '60s song resonates deeply with the Beach Boys' Mike Love -- and not just because he co-wrote it. These days, it's also something of an ode to how his life has improved, thanks to chiropractic care. "In more than 50 years of performing over 100 shows a year, I've traveled by car, van, bus, train, plane and occasional boat," he says of the toll all that touring has taken on his body. "Chiropractors have helped me remain mobile and pain-free." That makes Love, who's a big supporter of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, one of the growing number of Americans who've turned to what the journal Chiropractic & Manual Therapies calls "one of the most frequently utilized types of complementary and alternative care by older adults." In fact, an estimated 14 percent of patients cared for by chiropractors are age 65 and over. And while many older adults seek chiropractic care for its high patient-satisfaction scores and relief from musculoskeletal pain, chiefly back and neck pain, that's not all they're consulting such doctors about. The same C&MT article also noted that chiropractors help manage patients' health conditions through lifestyle counseling, including exercise and nutritional support. As for the lead singer of the Beach Boys, whose biggest-selling hit, "Kokomo," reached number one in 1988, he still loves performing in front of audiences worldwide. "With my active lifestyle," he says, "I use regular chiropractic care as a complement to my daily practice of transcendental meditation and hatha yoga."

Mid-Life Diets Important For Healthy Aging

Data from the Nurses' Health Study, a report that followed more than ten thousand women from 1976 through 2000, suggests the diets of women in their late 50s and early 60s could be tied to their health later in life. Since many diseases start in midlife, it’s likely that a healthy lifestyle which includes a healthy diet in midlife can be a factor in developing diseases in later life. Data acquired during this study showed women with the healthiest diets in their late 50s and early 60s were 34 to 46 percent more likely to have no chronic diseases as compared with those women with the poorest diets. Although this study focused on women only, we would expect similar findings in men. It’s never too late to follow a healthy lifestyle to feel better and reduce your chances of future disease.
