Having purchased a vibration machine a few years back as being sold to me to help my Lymphoedema i was quite excited. I have since been informed that it can possibly be detramental if it has the wrong plates. I have now sold it on, not taking any chances.
I have been told by the chap that sells Lymph machines to the NHS, oscillating plates should only be used not vibrating plates on any patient with Lymphoedem who are using massage machines of any kind. Vibrating plates will lead to increasing lymph fluid as it acts as a deep massage, which we all need to stay clear off, unlike oscillating plates, he stated this help blood flow so should not increase lymph fluid. Also told never to sit on a massage chair as this is also very bad for a Lymph patient as it really does press deep. Here was me thinking i was doing good.
Does anyone know what is correct and what is bogus?
If i were to use an oscillation machine and it was good for me i would hunt one down in any gym and give it a go again. But a little aprehensive incase i am doing more damage than good. Must ask my Consultant on next visit. Will keep you posted.
