Editor's Comment: German researchers assessed the safety and effectiveness of treatment with vibration massage using a deep oscillation device for fibromyalgia.  The technique is currently used by physiotherapists but also promoted for home-based self-application to stimulate the absorption of edema and reduce pain, as well as for its anti-inflammatory and antifibrous effects.  However, it's safety and effectiveness for fibromyalgia had not been previously studied. 

Sixty-three FM patients completed the trial.  They received 45-minute treatments twice a week over a five-week period.  Forty-one of the patients reported a total of 63 mild and short-lasting adverse events – mostly a worsening of prevalent FM symptoms.  However, overall symptoms and quality of life were significantly improved at both the control and follow-up visits.  The researchers concluded that vibration massage by deep oscillations is safe and and might provide sustained improvement in FM symptoms and quality of life.

Safety and effectiveness of vibration massage by deep oscillations: a prospective observational study.

By Karin Kraft, et al.

Abstract:

The objective of this study is to assess the safety of treatment with vibration massage using a deep oscillation device and the effects on symptom severity and quality of life in patients with primary fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS).

Outpatients with FMS performed an observational prospective study with visits 2-4 weeks after the last treatment (control) and after further 2 months (follow-up). Patients were treated with 10 sessions of 45?min deep oscillation massage, 2/week. Primary outcome parameters were safety and tolerability (5-level Likert scale (1 = very good)) (after each treatment session and at control visit). Secondary outcome parameters were symptom severity (Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ), pain) and quality of life (SF-36). Seventy patients (97.1% females) were included.

At control visit, 41 patients (58.6%) reported 63 mild and short-lasting adverse events, mainly worsening of prevalent symptoms such as pain and fatigue. Tolerability was rated as 1.8 (95% confidence interval: 1.53; 2.07). Symptoms and quality of life were significantly improved at both control and follow-up visits (at least P < 0.01).

In conclusion, deep oscillation massage is safe and well tolerated in patients with FMS and might improve symptoms and quality of life rather sustained.
