Safety

Patients should immediately stop therapy and consult with a qualified physician if they experience an aggravation of symptoms during a vibration healing session.

Patients should never substitute vibration therapy for benefits of a more conventional therapy.

Caution is advised in individuals with balance disturbances, poor motor control, or dementia. Pregnant women should not use vibration therapy due to lack of evidence.

Persistent vibrations may cause micro tears in muscles or ligaments and/or micro-fractures in bones.

Long terms effects of vibration therapy have not been well documented.
