Research: Vibration Therapy for Lymphedema
Vibration therapy has been well recognized for its effectiveness in treating lymphedema. However there are little scientific research conducted to examine its efficacy. We can still get some good concepts in general through the research of vibration therapy for circulation improvement.
On the other hand, some early research projects focused on the negative impact of vibration: prolonged exposure to vibration of certain frequency causing edema and white finger due to vibration induced neuropathy.
Understanding the potential negative impact can help us develop the correct modalities and equipment for treating lymphedema.
