pacemaker and vibration therapy

Hi everyone. I have had my pace maker for one and a half years now. My problem is that I developed neuropathy while I was in the hospital. Can I receive vibration therapy with my pace maker?

Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

I would have the therapist call your cardiologist and/or manufacturer.

Know that vibrations may set off your rate response and raise your rate, mistakenly thinking you are working out. It's harmless, but will feel weird if you aren't expecting it.

Yesterday I moved to a new place in my mind and realized how bad I felt 'before' and the difference my pacemaker has made.
