Multiple Sclerosis and whole body vibration
Multiple sclerosis describes a condition in which the outside linings of the nerve cells are damaged. This can include the brain and spinal cord. As a result, the symptoms can vary widely, and problems can either fluctuate or pogressively increase over time.
Since there is no known cure for MS, the patient must concentrate on reducing the effects of MS on their body.
Fatigue, stress, lack of sleep, pain, and a sedentary life style can increase symptoms of MS. Most patients say exercise becomes a must. However, they need activity that is simple, easy, and not painful.
Vibration Machine Exercise and Multiple Sclerosis
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. Unlike many other vibration machines, Lifetimevibe does not add painful stress to the muscles and joints.

“The results of this pilot study indicated that Whole Body Vibration may positively influence the postural control and mobility in Multiple Sclerosis patients.”
“Doing the Whole Body Vibration exercises helps those with Multiple Sclerosis to gain the benefits without the overwhelming fatigue resulting.”
“When the muscles are pushed in certain ways, this actually can help to stimulate the nerves to redevelop neural pathways or possibly even repair or rebuild the damaged nerves.”
“Whole Body Vibration exercises help those with Multiple Sclerosis exercise in ways that help provide the benefits of working out without creating large amounts of fatigue.”
“She was amazed by the result, feeling an immediate acute effect from the first treatment that lasted for four days.”
“ … after regular use for six months, she says using the machine has made her more alert and energetic and her muscles more conditioned and stimulated.”
“ … this exercise program is one aspect of a total approach to a chronic illness such as MS, and it must be combined with a good diet, proper rest, avoidance of tobacco and excessive alcohol, and management of stress for optimal results.”
