Does a Power Plate sort knee problems?

Feb 18th, 2016

Hello Guru!!

I am looking for a physiotherapist who uses Power Plate. I have minor knee pains and want to get them sorted! I have heard so much about how much power plate help knee problems!

Thank you!

Hi Rekha

 

I can’t think of any decent research out there that advocates the use of a Power Plate over any form of decent, load bearing rehab to help alleviate knee pain.

 

I guess if you use and have a bought a Power Plate, then you’re going to say it’s the best thing since sliced bread.

 

A decent, progressive loading program will give you far superior, long results – both anecdotally empirically.

 

Save you let cash and slowly start to load your knees though range, with good control. Start with squats through small range and low reps and over a period of weeks progress to lunges, bigger range, higher reps with greater weights.

 

Any increase in pain (and you’ve only got minor pain) then have a few extra days rest before restarting – it means that you’ve done too much too soon or done the wrong stuff!

 

Have a go.
