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!!!

Chiropractic For Tension Headaches

A good portion of those seeking chiropractic care do so for the relief from headaches. Of all the different types of headache, tension headaches are the most common representing approximately 60% of all headaches. Tension headaches are caused by the sustained contraction of the muscles in the neck and head region. Sufferers experience a constant tight or pressure sensation with mild to moderate pain, generally feeling like a tight band is wrapping around the head, lasting from hours to days. According to a new Danish study, tension headache sufferers exhibit neck and shoulder strength up to 26% weaker than in non-sufferers. Also found in those with tension headaches were muscle imbalances between sets of muscles that hold the head straight. Researchers weren’t sure whether the measured muscle weaknesses and imbalances were the result of the tension headaches or a cause of them. The good news is that most chiropractors have great success treating tension headaches. Biomechanical imbalances of the cervical and upper thoracic spine, and, muscle weakness and dysfunction are all things most chiropractors evaluate when treating tension headaches. Chiropractic adjustments along with stretching and strengthening exercises are commonly utilized with much success. If you believe you’re suffering from tension headaches, call your local chiropractor today!

Research Calls for Conservative Treatments Before Painkillers for Low-Back Pain

Arlington, Va. – The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), in response to recent research calling into question the efficacy of acetaminophen in the management of spinal pain, strongly encourages patients and healthcare providers to consider the benefits of a conservative approach to back pain. According to the British Medical Journal study, the widely used painkiller is ineffective against low-back pain and offers only "minimal short-term benefit" for people with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee. Similar conclusions were reached in a study published in The Lancet in July 2014, that acetaminophen "does not ease low-back pain."
 
"People need complete information about their treatment options," said ACA President Anthony Hamm, DC. "Research supports the use of more conservative treatments as a first-line defense against pain. This sensible approach not only reduces healthcare costs, but may also help some patients avoid riskier treatments altogether."
 
A "conservative care first" approach to health care encourages emphasis on more cost-effective and safer approaches over potentially addictive medications for pain management and health enhancement. Conservative management of painful conditions may include chiropractic manipulation combined with exercise and stretching prior to moving on to high-risk procedures. Chiropractic physicians are the highest-rated healthcare practitioners for low-back pain treatments due to their patient-centered, whole-person approach that provides greater interaction and communication for appropriate diagnosis and development of more cost-effective treatment plans.
 
"There are effective, more conservative treatments that help many patients lessen reliance on addictive painkillers and get back to their normal lives and activities," said Dr. Hamm. "The services provided by chiropractic physicians are not only clinically effective but also cost-effective, so taking a more conservative approach at the onset of low-back pain can also potentially save both patients and the healthcare system money down the line."
 
Numerous recent studies have clearly shown the dangerous overreliance in the United States on prescription painkillers. This has tremendously increased Americans’ risk for overuse, and abuse of these drugs if taken for long periods, leading to more than 17,000 related deaths in 2010 (more than heroin and cocaine combined). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls the abuse of prescription pain medications an "epidemic."

Mediterranean Diets With Olive Oil and/or Nuts Improve Brain Health

Looking to enhance your brain function and improve memory? New research out of Barcelona, Spain indicates a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra virgin olive oil and/or mixed nuts can do just that. Researchers randomly assigned 447 healthy aging individuals (average age 67) who were considered at high risk for a cardiovascular complication to 3 different dietary groups - A Mediterranean diet group supplemented with extra virgin olive oil (1 liter per week), a Mediterranean diet group supplemented with mixed nuts (30 grams per day), or a control diet group where participants were advised to reduce dietary fat. All participants received cognitive function tests at the beginning of the study, and those remaining in the study (approximately 75%) after approximately 4 years received the testing again. In general, participants consuming the low-fat control diet experienced a significant decrease in memory and cognitive function. Conversely, participants consuming the Mediterranean diet with nuts experienced significant improvements in memory, while those adding extra virgin olive oil experienced significantly better cognitive function. Both nuts and olive oil contain oleic acid which is one of the most common fats making up the brain which is 70% fat and is dependent upon getting its nourishment from the foods we eat. The antioxidant-rich foods in Mediterranean diets as well as nuts and olive oil provide nourishment to the brain and appear to help protect against overall brain health and cognitive decline.
