Rebounders in Physiotherapy – Accelerating Recovery

How Rebounders are used in physiotherapy to accelerate recovery and aid with a variety of conditions.

When it comes to rehabilitation and physical therapy, innovative tools and techniques can make a significant difference in the recovery process. One such tool gaining popularity in physiotherapy settings is the rebounder, also known as a mini trampoline. In this blog post, we will explore how rebounders are used in physiotherapy, and provide examples and evidence to support their efficacy. Discover the benefits of rebounding for rehabilitation and how Boogie Bounce can provide you with the perfect rebounder for your home workouts.

It is important to mention that if you are thinking of including rebounding into you rehabilitation routine, you must consult your health professional to make sure it is suitable and safe for you.

The Science Behind Rebounders in Physiotherapy:

Rebounding offers a unique exercise platform that provides low-impact, controlled movements, making them ideal for rehabilitation purposes. According to Dr. John Porcari, a leading expert in exercise physiology, “Using a rebounder helps stimulate the musculoskeletal system and promote neuromuscular control, aiding in balance and coordination recovery.”

Rehabilitation Benefits of Rebounders:

Accelerated Recovery: Rebounding on a mini trampoline helps improve circulation, increasing oxygen flow to injured areas and facilitating faster healing.

Joint Protection: The cushioning effect of rebounders reduces impact on joints, making it suitable for individuals with conditions such as arthritis or joint injuries.

Improved Balance and Coordination: Rebounding requires constant adjustment to maintain balance, enhancing proprioception and motor skills. See here.

We spoke with Coralin and Christopher who seem to agree with the benefits.

What has the research found?

This study looked at the Effect of 12-Week Rebound Therapy Exercise on Static Stability of Patients With Spinal Cord Injury and found compared to the non-rebounding control group, the rebounding group made a significant improvement in terms of static stability. It suggests that rebound exercise is a useful sports rehabilitation method for patients with SCI and other wheelchair-bound individuals.

This study looked at Rebound exercise: A beneficial adjuvant for sedentary non-insulin-dependent type 2 diabetic individuals, and indeed found rebounding to be very beneficial compared to the control group.

This study looked to find whether rebounding is beneficial for body weight management, blood glucose control, and improvement in the quality of life. They found that rebounding was effective and “hence should form part of obesity management.”
