    Posted: Dec/19/2012 at 2:05am
Does anyone know anything about the vibration excercise machines http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_body_vibration#Immediate_and_short_term ? I'm looking at them for circulation, bone density, balance and to increase my general amount of excercise. I'm thinking since I can't do the high impact excercise this might be a way to preserve (maybe improve) my bone density, my specialist told me about it years ago when they were doing trails and said it looked promising, it increased bone density, in sheep (now there's an image) anyone tried this?

I suppose it would depend upon what your CP issues are.  I know that my spinal problems would render me helpless on that as I couldn't possibly handle my entire spine being vibrated.  I'll stick to swimmingLOL

I was wondering about that too, if it's ok to use with back problems, mine aren't that bad but I don't want to do something that will agrivate it or make it worse. I'll have to remember to ask when I see the endo next year.

Mum used to use vibrating beds at a gym over 10 years ago. They had different ones that moved say legs or arms and in a certain direction per bed etc. The settings ranged from very gentle to fairly intense and was part of a programme and supervised. They helped her with the degenerative hip and rumitorid arthritis. They where very good for low impact and improving her mobility at the time and she lost inches (toned up). I tried one then I was about 14 yr old and found it boring would love to try them now, I wouldn't do a stand up on either not too good for bad backs Shocked

Anyone with spinal issues----please, please do NOT buy one of these or use them without someone who knows your particular problems,  unsupervised.  I can't use a hand mixer without neck and shoulder pain increasing.  I would be terrified of what it would do to my entire spine.  Sitting in a plane for 3 hours with mild turbulence (vibrations) and a bumpy landing last Sunday was about all of the vibrations I could handle.  Have been virtually bed bound for the last 3 days.

I hope you feel better soon Stevie, I'm not a good flier myself.

Anyone remember those 1000 fingers hotel beds from the 1970s LOL  . Power tools pre CP days usually made me sore and my hand would feel funny for hours, the percussion massager I have now though does help with pain and stiffness (although I don't use it on my lower back). 
 
I didn't know about the lay down option, maybe the physio has one. I'm scared to try the stand up one, I don't know enough about it, I wouldn't do it without talking to the doc first. Maybe those vibration massage chairs would be better. Would be good if I can use it though, walking really tightens my back up and running isn't an option making it hard to do weight bearing excercise for my bones.

Those vibration machines, well, I figure that if they were any good they would be in all the exercise gyms along with treadmills etc. Just thinking about something like that gives me the willies. talk to your Doctor first and be very careful,,,,, I haven't herd a lot about this type of machine and don't see where it would be very beneficial.

I was nervous about what I might read here - but eventually I had to look anyway
 
My parents had a thing on one of their chairs that vibrated - I sat on it for a few minutes and let it go
 
I don't like having my spine rattled either - and yes  - I know it has settings
 
I wonder what happened to it when my parents went into support care - in fact - I can't remember seeing that thing for years and years
 
Maybe they didn't like it either
 
Oh yeah - my mother had a vibrator - (not one of those - not that I would know) - but it had three discs with a soft padding and you could hold it around your neck and someone else could rub it up and down your back if you wanted
 
That was before I had a bad back - I am glad I didn't find that helpful either

I am not convince with the idea of vibration exercises machines,we should rely on manual machines rather than to try this one.I figure that if they were any good they would be in all the exercise gyms along with treadmills etc.
