Whole Body Vibration Helps In Way We Never Imagined

The following is a letter (email) we received a couple of days ago from a customer that has been able to get relief from Whole Body Vibration in a way  we never even thought of.  WBV is helping with vertigo.  Below is the wonderful email we received and we wanted to share with others in case they too could benefit from WBV.   Thank you Ginger for sharing.

This is a testimonial regarding the Soloflex Whole Body Vibrator Board.
As a child, I had many inner ear infections. As a senior, I began having episodes of severe vertigo. This is caused by residues of sludge that cling to the tiny hairs in the semi-circular canals, (called canoliths), and break off causing terrifying vertigo lasting only moments but longer lasting nausea.
I began using the Soloflex Vibrator Board twice a week for 10 minutes at the strongest setting. This causes the sludge to stay in suspension and disallowing canoliths to form. Once I got so busy that I failed to do the Vibrator Board for a month. The canoliths formed and broke off and I had a miserable, violent episode of vertigo. This simple practice for many years now has done what modern medicine has failed to do in treating this type of vertigo.

    I found your post quite interesting. I’ve not a balance disorder to two and half years. I’ve tried many treatments, including different types of therapy, medications, rest/activity without continued relief. I’ve recently tried vibration therapy and it’s been the only treatment that can reduce the symptoms in a practical manner. I’ve only been doing this for 3 days, but I am prepared to continue with this treatment until it is no longer efective. I’m not sure that I’m completely convinced of the mechanism that you suggest, but I too dam seeing positive results from a similar treatment. Vestibular disorders can be extremely difficult to treat and diagnose with multiple disorders with an even greater number of causes. Kudos to the original poster for finding something that has worked. I’m inclined to think in my case that vibration bombards malfunctioning nerves with stimulus and helps them re-boot. I also think that an equally viable explanation may be the relief of muscle tension around the head that somehow relieves pressure in the inner ear. An occupational therapist suggested that blocked lymph flow in the head and neck could also be a cause. Who knows…? I’m glad you’ve found some relief!
