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.

You have a little piece of high-tech in your chest.

Today I explained everything to my doctor, he set my lower rate back to 80 and I felt an immediate improvement.
