Whole Body Vibration Exercises For Fibromyalgia

vibration exercises for fibromyalgia

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.

    I have allodynia as a symptom of my fibromyalgia and this means every step I take is painful as I can feel the tremor going up my legs everytime I place each foot on the ground when walking, my arms are also very tender to the touch and it feels as if I am bruised all over but obviously with no mark. To use a vibration power plate would be extremely painful for me. Yet allodynia isn’t mentioned in this item in terms of a warning to those suffering it, that it may not be a good idea to try it.

    I was in extreme pain one morning after work. My boyfriend and I went to Sam’s. They had a demo of one of these machines. The man showing it asked if I wanted to try it. I declined saying I was in too much pain. He talked to me some more and I decided to try it,figuring I couldn’t hurt much more than I was. I was on the machine for about 10 minutes total. I tried different positions,even sitting. When I was done I felt so much better! My fibromyalgia pain was considerably less for about 2 weeks. I wish I had the $ and the space for one
