Whole Body Vibration (WBV) as Adjunct to Lymphedema Treatment
More NEW EQUIPMENT just in!! We are so excited to be the only lymphedema rehabilitation clinic in Tallahassee adding WHOLE BODY VIBRATION to our clinic as an adjunct to lymphedema management for our clients!
Whole Body Vibration can assist in speeding up metabolism, improving circulation, and promoting optimal lymph drainage, in conjunction with CDT. Check out the video below for more information and a demo of how this piece of equipment works!
As many of you know, Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is the gold standard for lymphedema management.
CDT consists of:
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)
Exercise- this is where the Whole Body Vibration comes in.
Some of our clients have difficulty exercising. This WBV machine is a way to add exercise in with our clients that have arthritis, chronic pain and other restrictions that would typically prevent them from exercising. There is an option to stand on the machine while performing exercise, just stand on the machine for the vibration or to sit on the machine if standing is difficult.
Please contact us if you have questions or would like your therapist to try this in your next session for lymphedema management!
