Whole Body Vibration Therapy
With the New Year heading our way, we, at Hopkins Chiropractic, have opened our practice to a new and exciting type of chiropractic care…Whole Body Vibration Therapy or put simply, WBV. WBV is one of the latest trends in rehabilitative and preventative medicine with recent studies showing fantastic results for wide array of patients. While accelerating the body's natural healing process, WBV helps with injuries, illness and even exercise. Working twice as fast as traditional physical therapies, WBV can offer both patient and practitioner improved feedback, and therefore, improved performance and results.
More specifically, WBV causes stimulation of the living cells within our bodies. This stimulation helps with cellular regrowth, increases in the oxygen levels in cells, improved uptake of nutrients within the cells, as well as improved cellular waste removal. What does this mean for you? Well, without these important cellular processes our bodies are prone to disease and/or injury, both of which can accelerate the aging process.
While working with astronauts, Russian scientist ,Vladimir Nazarov, wanted to come up with a solution to some of the adverse health effects that astronauts experience while in space, most notably: the loss of muscle and bone mass, often times resulting in bone fractures. His solution was to subject the astronauts to WBV sessions during their rigorous pre-liftoff space training sessions. His results were astounding and showed improvement in bone density, as well as muscle strength.
Current research shows that WBV is indicated for a broad range of therapeutic and clinical applications, such as the following:
Balance, Coordination & Fall Prevention
Flexibility & Range of Motion
Bone & Joint Rehabilitation, especially Knee Rehab
Lower Back Pain & Pelvic Instability
Osteoporosis, Arthritis & Rheumatism
Regardless of age, WBV provides a low impact vertical exercise solution that can work the entire body or specific body parts. The reduction of pain and discomfort can dramatically improve flexibility and range of motion. As a standalone exercise program, or even as a pre/post workout addition, provides many muscular benefits in a fraction of the time. One of the major perks of WBV is its ability to allow individuals with debilitating illnesses or restrictive conditions to enhance their quality of life, which is something we strive to achieve at Hopkins Chiropractic.

Introducing our Wellness Program! A unique combination of nutritional and dietary guidance. Including but not limited to supplement and vitamin recommendation, exercise and fitness instruction, along with medical evaluations to promote weight loss, proper nutritional guidelines for you and your family, and to make sure it is done in a healthy way.
Current trends in weight loss have included high doses of protein consumption, with low carbohydrate consumption. The theory behind this dietary plan does result in some weight loss, but in a very unhealthy way for your body. We are utilizing a proven method of proper dietary considerations, in multiple servings per day, to naturally and safely increase your body's metabolism, all under the guidance of a physician. We will spell out your meal and exercise plan, while also evaluating your body's vital statistics, such as heart rate, blood pressure, weight and pH levels.
Realize that this plan is for HEALTHY LIVING and will result in some weight loss. It will come in 1-3 pound increments. It is not a diet, but a change in your lifestyle. Because body types are different and muscle weighs more than fatty cells, your body will go through changes. It is important to pay attention to your energy levels, your well being, the way your clothes are fitting, and your overall vital statistics, more so than the scale. This is not a DIET PLAN, but a change that will make you and your family more vibrant and healthy. In addition, your body will stabilize at it's optimal weight. Again, because of body types, our body might not get to a certain, desired weight, but stabilize where it is most healthy.
Included in this package is a menu that you will find beneficial. You can pick and choose from a variety of packages that fit your specific needs and goals. We are confident that if you follow our plan accordingly, you will lose your desired weight, feel more energy and confidence, and ultimately be healthier in the process. Once you begin your program with us we will create a program specifically for you. Please visit our website for details!
