Osteoporosis and Whole-Body Vibration

Whole-Body Vibration (WBV) has been around for quite some time, but lately we are hearing about it more and more. Stars like Madonna attest to the incredible workouts they get on a WBV machine in much less time than simply lifting weights. Many doctors and physical therapists are adding WBV equipment to their offices as most people are unable to afford home units. Recently, the TV show "The Doctors" and "The Tyra Banks Show" featured WBV units used for weight loss, lymphatic drainage, muscle toning and balance. The same machine may help treat osteoporosis as well.

Can this technology increase bone density? Is WBV over-hyped or is it a reasonable tool to use for treating osteoporosis, bodybuilding, and rehabilitation? I have spent the past two years investigating WBV and I have personally tested a variety of machines. During this upcoming webinar I will discuss my findings and my personal experience with WBV, especially as it relates to osteoporosis and muscle strengthening. If you are considering purchasing a WBV machine or using one in a gym, you do not want to miss this webinar. Not all WBV units are created equal!
