Whole-body vibration may reduce pain associated with fibromyalgia
Whole-body vibration exercise effectively reduced the severity of pain in patients with fibromyalgia, according to study findings. The study enrolled 24 women with fibromyalgia and randomly assigned them to either 8 weeks of twice-weekly, lower-body, progressive-resistance exercise with whole-body vibration or an attention control group. Whole-body vibration involved patients standing, sitting or laying on a vibrating platform to induce alternating muscle contraction and relaxation.
