Private Clinic Dr. Thomas Pauly – Vibration Training:
Vibration Training was developed by the Soviet space program: The reduction of muscle mass in astronauts caused by the weightlessness in space could be significantly reduced through this method. Due to its effectiveness, Vibration Training also quickly took hold in high-performance sports.
In PowerPlate training, engines trigger mechanical impulses, which are directed from bottom to top and are transferred to the entire body at a very high frequency (up to 50 Hz). These stimuli trigger a stretch reflex at the muscle receptors, which causes strong contractions of the muscles without overstraining the central nervous system. At the same time, the bone structure is engaged, which in turn promotes growth of bone mass (so-called Wolff’s law).
Thanks to a special technique adjusted for therapeutic use as well as an appropriately structured software and training program, we can now treat various disorders using Vibration Training at the Private Orthopedics Clinic Kö 94 such as
- muscle imbalance with weakness or pain,
- neurological indications (e.g., Parkinson’s disease or peripheral nerve disorders),
- pelvic-floor weakness or pain, and
