Whole body vibration exercise for fibromyalgia is one of the most effortless exercises. If you have fibromyalgia, this exercise can help to relieve muscle pain and tension, and even help with sleep problems and anxiety.
As you know, exercise does not come easy for those with fibromyalgia. In fact, many fibromyalgia patients find it a struggle to exercise due to pain and the lack of energy. The recently coined term in the field of exercise, “passive exercise”, provides fibro patients with the best of both worlds. These exercises include electronic ab simulators, chi machines, inversion boots, as well as whole body vibration exercise.
What Is Whole Body Vibration Exercise?
Also called the power plate exercise, whole body vibration exercises involve exercising on a power plate. The power plate vibrates at a rate of 30 vibrations in every second. The most basic form of this exercise is simply to stand and balance on the power plate while it is vibrating. That is all that is required for this exercise in its most basic form. In fact, some less able people would sit on the power plate.
