Autoimmune Disorders and How Vibration Plates Can Help

Autoimmune Disorders and How Vibration Plates Can Help

Table of Contents

Autoimmune disorders are becoming increasingly common, and those who suffer from them often have difficulty finding relief. One of the most promising treatments for autoimmune diseases is using vibration plates. Vibration plates use mechanical vibrations to stimulate the body and can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and improve overall health. Clinical research has shown that vibration plates can effectively treat autoimmune disorders, as they can improve the body's ability to fight off infection and reduce inflammation. 

Hashimoto's, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and Inflammatory bowel disease are just a few examples of autoimmune disorders that people deal with daily. Over the course of this article, we'll go over the research on using vibration plates to help with some of the most common autoimmune disorders to help you decide whether one may be right for you.

What is WBV Therapy

Whole-body vibration (WBV) therapy is an activity where you stand, sit, or lay down on a rapidly vibrating platform. As the platform vibrates, it forces your muscles to stabilize your body, resulting in many beneficial physical adaptions. Improvements in muscle strength, endurance, balance, and body composition are just a few benefits attainable with the regular use of vibration plates.

Vibration Plates for Autoimmune Disease

On top of all this, researchers have found that WBV may benefit people suffering from different disorders. Vibration plates are especially beneficial for those dealing with autoimmune diseases.

The following section will research how vibration plates may benefit people with specific autoimmune disorders.


Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disorder that results in pain throughout the sufferer's body. People with Fibromyalgia are encouraged to exercise regularly, though the pain can make this difficult.

The Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness study suggests that whole-body vibration can be used as a main therapy for Fibromyalgia as it could improve the balance, fatigue, and pain of patients with FM. 

Other studies confirm vibration plates are an excellent option for those who have difficulty performing regular exercise, as they result in similar benefits without causing any additional wear and tear on the body.

 Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder that affects the brain and spinal cord. Many who suffer from MS feel fatigued or have difficulty getting around, often resulting in muscle mass loss.

Dr. Terry Wahls, an MS specialist, had this to say about using our vibration plates for MS:

"I have used vibration plate exercise equipment as part of my exercise routine for several years. Research shows that vibration plate training increases muscle mass, bone density, core strength, and leg strength.

Lifepro is an affordable vibration platform that increases accessibility to the benefits of vibration plate training. It is part of my daily self-care routine! It is a wonderful adjunct to one's home exercise program."

She continued to cite this paper which showed how vibration plates improved both leg strengths in female MS patients. She also mentions another study that similarly observed improvements in strength and walking in hospitalized MS patients.


Type 1 diabetes mellitus is an autoimmune disorder where a person's immune system attacks insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. While physical activity is important for everyone, it is even more so for those with diabetes.

The problem is, depending on the severity of diabetes, exercise can be difficult. Thankfully, a new study published in the journal Endocrinology suggests that vibration plates may be a great alternative, for people suffering from diabetes or obesity as it doesn't require intense exercise.

Reducing inflammation with whole-body vibration

Recent research conducted by the Medical College of Georgia and Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University suggests that whole-body vibration (WBV) can increase the number of macrophages and good bacteria in the body, decreasing inflammation. This indicates that WBV may be a potential treatment for inflammatory autoimmune conditions.
