You have it backwards. The misfire is causing the engine to shake. Have the trouble codes read to know what is going on,

Also try running Premium fuel. If there is a hot spot in a cylinder or piston some gas types my ignite prematurely (ie, "misfire"). The vibration is the engine pistons opposing one another in the premature detention. The higher octane is additives to prevent that.
