Side-Alternating Vibration Therapy for MS Study #4

Vibration training improves disability status in multiple sclerosis: A pretest-posttest pilot study.

Yang F1, Estrada EF2, Sanchez MC2.

Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of an 8-week vibration training program on changing the disability level in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Twenty-five adults with clinically-confirmed MS underwent an 8-week vibration training on a side-alternating vibration platform. The vibration frequency and peak-to-peak displacement were set at 20Hz and 2.6mm, respectively. Prior ...

Im 50, so a late diagnosis with multiple (he wouldn't count, so I'm assuming a lot) lesions in brain and C-spine. Does ...
