According to the Center for Disease Control, 29 million Americans suffer from diabetes. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy, or the nerve damage which occurs from diabetes, often results in burning pain and numbness in the feet, legs, and hands. If you are one of the millions suffering from diabetic nerve pain and diabetic peripheral neuropathy, there is a form of exercise you should consider including in your regimen: ZAAZ WBV (Whole Body Vibration).
ZAAZ is a leader in its field as both a low impact exercise and a safe therapeutic tool. For those with diabetic nerve pain, the ZAAZ’s oscillating vibration system has a lower impact and is easier on the feet than the tri-planar system used by many other WBV machines. The oscillating vibration system is also ideal for those with joint and back pain, which are symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Other benefits of the ZAAZ vibration machine for those with diabetes include its resistance training, a proven method of controlling diabetes and lowering blood sugar levels, and its stimulation of lymphatic and pulmonary circulation. This is crucial for those with diabetes, who are at risk for losing circulation in their legs and feet. As doctors point out, weight loss and exercise are vital for controlling diabetes, and ZAAZing provides both.
Many scientific studies have confirmed the effectiveness of WBV as a treatment for diabetes pain. In Efficiency of vibration exercise for glycemic control in type 2 diabetes patients¹, Institute for Physiology and Anatomy researchers Klaus Baum, Tim Votteler, and Jürgen Schiab found that “vibration exercise (VE) could be established as an effective measure to prevent muscular atrophy and osteoporosis with low expenditure of overall exercise-time. The researchers also concluded that Whole Body Vibration is “a new and effective measure to prevent muscular atrophy and osteoporosis.” Other researchers have corroborated the view that Whole Body Vibration is an effective treatment for diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Junggi Hong, an assistant professor at Willamette University’s Department of Exercise Science, conducted a study in 2011 to test the effectiveness of WBV in treating diabetes pain. The subject was a 71-year-old man suffering from chronic diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain in his feet for five years. “After 8 weeks of whole body vibration treatment,” Dr. Hong concluded, “the patient’s pain in both feet was significantly reduced.”² In 2017, a team of German researchers in experimental hematology and oncology conducted a study involving 131 patients with chemotherapy-induced polyneuropathy (CIPN). The findings of the study supported the conclusion that WBV is beneficial to those with diabetes pain and neuropathy, and that “whole-body vibration on the background of an IP (integrated program) may improve physical fitness and coordination in patients suffering from CIPN.”³
Countless satisfied users of ZAAZ vibration machines have also vouched for their effectiveness as a pain relief device. “I don’t often write reviews or testimonials but this Zaaz 20K is a fabulous machine,” one customer, Pete C. of Scottsdale, Arizona, writes. “I have a number of chronic medical issues that have relegated me to very limited activity and more or less, rendered me housebound. I met a wonderful sales person (Mia B.) at the Scottsdale Sams club a few weeks ago. She was so helpful and demonstrated the machine perfectly. Yes, I purchased it and I have been feeling better every day since. Not only am I feeling better overall, some things such as my blood glucose levels are getting better every day as well.” Marie M., a ZAAZ user from Gilroy, California, says the ZAAZ has helped her with pain relief as well.
“I stand on my feet all day and have severe varicose veins that are very painful,” Marie writes. “I am happy to report that since using the machine daily, they have improved by at least 75%. It has made work so much more bearable and am shocked at the difference it has made.”
ZAAZ’s amazing success and effectiveness as an exercise and pain relief tool has made the brand a leader in customer satisfaction. We continue to set the bar high, developing new classes, training videos, and more to satisfy your needs. Above all else, we are committed to providing the health, happiness, and relief for individuals suffering from diabetic pain have needed and deserved for so long.
