Whole Body Vibration for Every Patient in Your Practice

Posted by Christian Reichardt, DC, CCSP on Wednesday, August 08, 2018

After having been in practice for over 30 years, I have noticed some significant changes in the way patients behave. I think it is no surprise for you to hear that people the more stressed out than ever.

What does that mean for your office? The patient is overwhelmed, rushed, on the phone or texting until the moment they walk into the treatment room. I even had patients answer the phone while getting a treatment, despite a ban on cell phones in our office. It blew me away!

How ready is the body and it's neurological system to receive a chiropractic adjustment? Often their brain/computer is so locked up they hardly notice the impact we are making on their system with the adjustment.

Let me share with you a simple way making a difference.

In my office we have every patient step onto the A3 Whole Body Vibration unit as soon as they step into the office. We have them do some simple balance exercises. We do this because their brain HAS to focus on posture and balance. The neurological input of the vibration plate creates what I call a massive "afferent barrage" neurologically and proprioceptively, which inevitably lets the patient forget about everything else. They have to be present and focused in order to not fall over.

Since I have been implementing this little trick, my patients are much more aware during the actual chiropractic treatment because we challenged and stimulated the neurologic pathways that effect change via neuroplasticity! I have noticed that patients take the adjustment better and generally become more involved with their own care again.

This little trick literally takes only 3 to 4 minutes! Without needing a staff member to attend to the patient, it is a extremely cost-effective way getting better results with every patient.

The A3 Whole Body Vibration plates are very affordable, have a small footprint, and consequently are a worthwhile simple investment for any chiropractic office!
