Whole Body Vibration for Physical Therapy at Chester County Hospital


Residents of Chester County, PA now have a new technology that significantly speeds up recovery and healing from injury.

Whole-Body Vibration is a non-invasive therapy that utilizes low-frequency vibration to help improve physical performance during rehabilitation. Research has shown that Whole-Body Vibration can benefit patients of all ages and physical conditions by improving muscle strength, bone density and balance.

Chester County Hospital uses the Power Plate System, a world-leader in whole-body vibration. The Power Plate system vibrates in three dimensions using oscillatory waves. These vibrations stimulate involuntary neuromuscular activity to promote quick, reactive responses in muscle fibers and an increase in circulation. This helps provide whole-body balance, mobility and stability, strength and muscle memory. 

Whole Body Vibration Therapy at Chester County Hospital in West Chester, PABenefits of the Power Plate System:

  • Eases pain
  • Assists improving flexibility
  • Improves joint function
  • Promotes faster recovery
  • Improves mobility and balance
  • Helps stimulate circulation in the blood and the lymphatic circulatory systems

The device allows the physical therapist to adjust the level of intensity to match the needs of the patient. Intensity levels can be safely increased or decreased to target different outcomes. Before therapy, patients receive a formal physical therapy assessment and care plan to establish desired outcomes.
