One common technique that gets employed in proprioceptive exercise is the vibration board. Vibration therapy often gets used because it increases the rate at which your muscles re-learn their substantial role. When your neuromuscular system gets challenged with vibration, the body gets trained to learn its part. This speeds up the rate of recovery.
When patients spend 10 minutes on the vibration unit, they are often surprised at how tired they feel. That’s because the vibration unit knocks your entire body off its sense of natural balance. This forces your body to respond at a faster rate than you would if you were standing on a wobble board. The vibration unit forces more muscles to contract. This allows your neurologic system patterns to come into place at a faster rate.
