Participant 1 : 74 year old Female

Prior to starting WBV intervention, this participant noted that her feet were often either numb or has a sharp burning feeling.  She also has a history of painful walking, slow wound healing and regular use of painkillers to manage her symptoms.  She has also been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis (a painful condition of the feet).  When initiating the intervention, Participant 1 has difficulty bearing her full weight on her left foot for more than 1-2 minutes.  Within the first two weeks of the intervention, the participant was able to gear her weight fully on both feet and reported notable decreases in pain such that at times she would withhold her pain medication. 

The decreased pain allowed the participant to participate in a more active lifestyle noting that she was able to exercise with greater ease and that getting in and out of a chair was much easier.  This increased tolerance to activity allowed her to be active throughout most weekends.  Soon after initiating the intervention, Participant 1 reported having a self-inflicted wound on the foot.  After receiving a physician’s clearance to continue in the study, the wound was closely monitored. 

Participant 1 had a history of foot wounds and she reported that wounds of similar size had taken approximately 6 months to heal.  During the intervention, this wound was completely healed in two months.  Both Participant 1 and her physician were greatly enthused with the accelerated healing time that was observed.  Following the 12 week WBV intervention, she shared feeling of experiencing a returned sense of freedom in life.

Participant 2: 63 year old Female

Reported having severe foot pain including sharp pins and needles sensation that greatly affected her sleeping patterns.  Her foot pain was one of the factors that limited her lifestyle and daily activity levels.  Within the first few weeks of initiating the study, her symptoms began to improve.  She reported that pain relief came in stages with her feet feeling better more proximally first while pain in her toes took longer to improve.  She first notice that the painful tingling sensations decreased followed by improvements in the stiffness in her feet.  The decreases in pain allowed Participant 2 to increase her tolerance to physical activity.  She increased her fitness program to include increased amounts of weight bearing cardiovascular training and implemented a resistance-training program.  These changes provided the impetus for her to begin a physician supervised diet program and to date she has lost over 40 pounds.  After completing the study, she purchased a WBV machine for home use.  At the end of the study, the Participant stated, “Thank you for giving me my life back.”

Participant 3: 61 year old Male

Reported highly frequent and severe sharp shooting pains throughout his feet and lower legs as well as a pins and needles sensation and numbness in the feet.  Pain relief for this participant began immediately.  After the first session, he reported that the pins and needles sensation that he had had for fifteen years in his legs and feet went away.  Throughout the intervention Participant 3 continued to receive incremental pain relief.  He reported that his numbness was decreasing.  The frequency of his shooting pain decreased from several times per hour to just a few per day.  This participant also noted progressive increases in the duration of pain free time periods right after WBV starting with one to two hours to 1-2 day without pain.  This participant also purchased a WBV machine at the conclusion of the study.
