The medical community seems to believe that multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disorder. The symptoms seem to be a bit different from patient to patient. Research is being pursued in a wide variety of ways throughout the world but, further research is needed to actually pinpoint the cause of MS.
Since, at this point, there is not a cure for MS, the patient must concentrate on reducing the effects of MS on their body. Whole body Vibration can help in a noticeable way.
Fatigue, stress, lack of sleep, pain, sedentary life style all become factors in MS. Most patients say exercise becomes a must. It makes the difference in how well the body functions.
Whole Body Vibration may improve stamina, circulation, pelvic floor function, overall feeling of well-being, cognitive function of the brain and reduce spasticity and infections. Whole body vibration does not add stress to the muscles and joints.
