Abstract: The aim of this study was to describe a case of type 2 diabetic patient with peripheral neuropathy treated with 6-week Whole-Body Vibration program training. A 52-year old woman who complained from night sleep disturbance due to feet pain and tingling and also fear of falling during daily walking. She tried medications without any significant effect. After six weeks training with Whole-Body Vibration, the pain level, muscle strength, balance and flexibility improved. Also, neuropathy score decreased significantly. These finding demonstrate that Whole-Body Vibration is an effective complimentary treatment in type 2 diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy.
