Vibration Plates

Postby Schnoodle » Tue Apr 12, 2011 5:20 pm

Hi,

has anyone tried/used one of these?

I have just been my usual spontaneous self and bought one from next! :? :?: :roll:

I need to try and tone up a little and im hoping the gentle excercise will help a little with the pain too.

see that is my worry but i guess i just have to try. i figure i could always sell it if it diesnt work. i could try one in a salon but its so expensive and just getting there would leave me unable to use it xx

I have one that I sit on. It hurts the first five mins then the muscles start to relax and it actually helps lessen pain for an hour after. Trick is to not stay on more than 15 mins xx

Hi
I had a one but when i got off it my legs felt like jelly and i just feel on the floor and where it shook my body up it triggered a migraine.
I tried it a number of times but my body just could not cope with it, i even tried just sitting on it but still got migraines.

Its a shame as its a great way to tone up. :goodluck1: i hope it works for you.

Hi all, just an update really, I have had my vibro plate for a few days, and my god it must be doing something as I feel like I have run the marathon twice, swam 100 lengths and done a million mile long bike ride- on top of all the fibre symptoms! I'm going to take my dog out if I make it to the woods and come back to bed.

Ouch.

I'm going to see how u go with it and if I'm still like this I'm going to sell it. I dont think it helps that this one has nobly bits on the plate you stand on so that hurts my feet to begin with. I'm going to put a towel over it and see if yhat helps

Schnoodle, there's no need for you to feel at all :oops: :oops: about the vibration plate. You've tried something that might have made a difference to how you feel. Like everything to do with FM, it's a case of trial error to try and find something that makes a difference to how we feel. There's nothing wrong with it not working out as well as you wanted and hoped for. If you didn't try it then you would have been wondering about it :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:
