The dialogue of this course focuses on the subject of vibration, from its beginning to its mechanical forms and uses, particularly in the health care professions. Whether it is for medical testing, medical research, rehabilitation, diagnostics, general applications in daily life, or to realize the potential for help or harm, you will learn that vibration is ABOUT EVERYTHING, that it TOUCHES EVERYTHING; therefore, it AFFECTS EVERYTHING. There is no space between vibration and people or things because VIBRATION IS EVERYWHERE – on us, in us, and around us and things. One might say it is us.
In the past few years, more was learned about the medical use of vibration than ever before. Promising data continues to grow with ongoing studies that most definitely will add to that found herein. If a therapist plans to use vibration equipment in an establishment, knowing the science behind vibration, and using collected knowledge to recognize facts versus fiction can help avoid dangerous pitfalls, especially those related to contraindications.
Vibration is not just about tools that shake the muscles. Remember that vibrational frequencies are around us, on us, and in us always. Vibration, wherever it may be, is continually affected by other things with frequencies. Just because we cannot see it shaking doesn’t mean that it isn’t. We just cannot see small enough.
