As the Head Physiotherapist for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, I have been using Niagara Cycloid Vibration Therapy devices for several years as part of my injury management protocols.
The benefits of vibration therapy have long been established. There is evidence to show an increase in blood circulation can prevent and manage muscle soreness, and can also help
to mediate pain levels.
The Niagara devices are a great adjunct to assist in the management of my athletes. I have found them to be particularly useful in the management of soft tissue injuries as well as managing the soreness our players get following intense bouts of training. I have also found the use of CVT extremely beneficial in managing soreness and spasm following an acute lower back injury.
Furthermore, the Niagara units are easy to use, portable and well liked by our players. This assists with compliance to our protocols as it allows them to take the units home with them and use as required.
I would have no hesitation in recommending these devices to other therapists to include in their athlete and patient management programs.
