vibration plate

Postby trishy » Sun Apr 27, 2014 5:37 pm

I bought a vibration plate hoping it would help the circulation in my legs and ease the pain in my body, I had heard that sportspeople use them from aches and sprains when they are unable to train. It looked very inviting one of them that does all the work for you. I have persevered with it for months but every time I use it I am in agony for days sometimes weeks afterwards. Has anyone used one of these contraptions because I am wondering if I am using it correctly before it goes in the bin. :(

I use one 3 times a week I started on low for 60 seconds to start with. Now I do 3 mins on high and I am fine. Just take it slowly first and listen to your body and gradually build it up.

The use of vibration plates, and how helpful they may be, pops up now and again. Like so many other things, some can find they make a difference, whereas for others, using one can aggravate things even further.

When starting to do or use something new, it needs to be done very, very gently and for only short periods of time. When increasing how long the plate is used for, the increases need to be small, at least at the start, to try and ensure it doesn't cause additional problems, flare~ups etc. These increases may well be much smaller than what the distruction guide suggests, but unfortunately that's how FM rolls with these kind of things.
