6 How Pain Works

7 How the V.I.A. Works Vibration interrupts or confuses the signals from the peripheral nociceptors in the extremities. In other words, it creates a traffic jam in the nerve pathway so the pain signal cannot be delivered to the brain effectively.Vibration interrupts or confuses the signals from the peripheral nociceptors in the extremities.
