Abstract: The aim of the study was to describe a case of type II diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain treated with whole body vibration therapy after a failed trial of conventional drugs and interventional pain management. A 71-year-old male had chronic diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain in his both feet for about 5 years. He tried he tried multiple pain medications and various interventional pain treatment without significant pain relief. After 8 weeks of whole body vibration treatment the patient’s pain level, balance, and gait patterns significantly improved. These findings illustrate the importance of considering whole body vibration as a complimentary treatment in patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain.
