I have a lady using Life Vessel for spinal fractures and we dug this up for her. Thought others would like to read it…

Low frequency sound therapy is thought to be effective in reducing painful physical ailments by stimulating cell reproduction and other bodily changes. In particular, low frequency sound, light and vibrational therapy is thought to increase the production of hyaluronic acid (HLA), which helps to lubricate joints and relieves muscle and joint pain and inflammation. Hyaluronic acid is a mucopolysaccharide (complex sugars containing an amino group) that is naturally produced in the body (the human body makes about 3,000 mg of hyaluronic acid a day). It is a constituent of synovial fluid, which lubricates the cartilage between moveable joints. In a normal healthy joint it is this viscous fluid and smooth cartilage that allows the surfaces of bones within a joint to function smoothly and glide past one another. It is the latest in natural medication for arthritis and fibromyalgia. Low frequency sound also stimulates cellular repair, helping to increase overall bodily health and stamina.

Research has already shown that exposure to frequencies at that same 20 and 50 Hz level induces increased bone density. In one study, for example, chickens were placed daily on a vibrating plate for 20 minutes, which resulted in stronger bone growth (National Geographic January, 2001 p. 11). Further, in 1994, Dr. Chen and his associates, working with rabbits, determined that frequencies of 25 and 50 Hz promoted bone strength by 20%, stimulating both the mechanism and speed of fracture healing (Chen et al, ‘The Effects of Frequency of Mechanical Vibration on Experimental Fracture Healing’. Chinese Journal of Surgery, 32 (4), 217-219, 1994).
