Maintaining optimal bone density is necessary for overall health and wellness. As we grow older, our bodies start losing bone density due to various factors, often leading to osteoporosis, a skeletal condition marked by weakened bones. Glen Rock Spine & Rehab uses cutting-edge Power Plate devices to help you build muscle strength, restore bone density, encourage bone regeneration, and reverse the effects of osteoporosis, restoring optimal health and wellness.

What is vibration therapy?
Vibration therapy refers to using vibrating weights and pulleys while working out. Studies have shown that vibrations encourage blood circulation and bone regeneration, making it a useful component of physical therapy and exercises. Vibrations from weights and plates make your muscles contract and relax, improving muscle development. In some cases, the vibrations produce more osteoblasts, i.e., bone regeneration cells. As such, vibration therapy boosts the results of your physical therapy, building muscles and strengthening your bone density.
Why use Power Plate for vibration therapy?
Glen Rock Spine & Rehab is committed to using the latest and most advanced technologies for all regenerative treatments. We use Power Plate for whole-body vibration therapy because it has shown proven results in increasing strength and flexibility, producing better results, and helping you complete a workout within 15 minutes. It stimulates your natural reflexes and increases muscle activation, significantly improving the results of your workouts. The Power Plate platform vibrates 25 to 50 times per second to consistently engage the muscles.
Who is a good candidate for Power Plate?
Power Plate is suitable for anyone performing weight-bearing, such as weight lifting and jogging. It’s also suitable for people suffering from osteoporosis, obesity, scoliosis, and other such conditions. It can help you recover from these conditions or prevent their occurrence. However, Power Plate should only be used after a thorough evaluation with our physiatrists — we review your health history, run diagnostic tests, and determine if you’re a viable candidate for Power Plate.
How does Power Plate encourage muscle growth and bone regeneration?
- Bone Regeneration: Power Plate changes the flow of fluids within the bones, encouraging the formation of bone regenerative cells known as osteoblasts, which, over time, leads to increased bone density.
- Hormone Alteration: Power Plate temporarily changes the testosterone levels and growth hormones in the body to activate bone regeneration, increasing your bone density.
- Muscle Strengthening: Power Plate activates the sensory receptors within the muscles to activate muscle contractions, thereby strengthening your overall bone density.
