ARPwave Neuro Therapy Treats Neck Pain and Neuropathy

ARPwave Neuro Therapy Treats Neck Pain and Neuropathy

 

Meet Maribel,  a mom of two, loving wife, dedicated worker and outdoor enthusiast. Recently Maribel had been struggling with neck pain and neuropathy in her arms. Cervical neuropathy is a term for symptoms caused by a trapped, compressed or damaged nerve root in the neck. Symptoms can include numbness, tingling, a cold/warm feeling, headaches or neck pain. A majority of Maribel’s days started were spent with pain in her neck and back and numbness down her arms and into her fingers. One afternoon Maribel dropped and broke a glass because she could not feel anything in her hands. That was the final straw, she decided to do something about her pain and neuropathy and came into NSP&R to try ARPwave Neuro Therapy.

Maribel lived a very active lifestyle prior to her neuropathy, neck and back pain setting in. She was unable to work out, exercise, and day to day functions became daunting. Sitting for long periods was near impossible without experiencing pain in her neck and back. Immediately upon starting her ARPwave therapy Maribel noticed a huge difference in symptoms. The sharp pain, pins and needles sensation that ran from her mid-back, down her arms and into her fingers diminished almost entirely. Sitting with pain became a thing of the past. Her low back pain went away entirely. In one of her arms, 100% of the neuropathy symptoms went away and ~95% of the symptoms diminished in the other arm. Since completing her ARPwave neuro therapy program Maribel has returned to her active lifestyle pain-free!

Chronic Neck & Back Pain – Herniated Discs

“Try the ARPwave. It has been the best thing I have ever done for myself.”

Delia

Chronic Neck Pain – Herniated Disc

“Since ARPwave my life has changed dramatically. I am now able to go out for long walks, when before I couldn’t even walk, because my head was so heavy and my neck was so tight.”

Rita

Upper Back, Neck & Shoulder Pain

“I’ve been dealing with neck, back and shoulder pain for almost 4 years now as the result of car wrecks. Since my first treatment I have been continuously pain free, and sleeping better than I have in years. While everyone else has been treating the pain itself, the ARPwave was able to locate and treat the actual origin of the pain.”

Kenny G.

How Can a 62 Year Old Martial Artist Continue to Compete?

Congratulations Jeff Bonugli – 2018 World Masters Jiu Jitsu Champion!!!

 

At 62 years young and with 40+ years of martial arts training, competing and teaching, Jeff Bonugli has just proven that he is not yet ready for the “rocking chair”.

It’s an interesting story!

It all started back in 1974 when Jeff walked into the Soryu Karate Dojo in New Braunfels, TX and began his training under Chris Lopez, now known as Grand Master Lopez.

 

74 Years Young Grand Master Lopez Testing ARPwave

 

Flash forward 4 or 5 years . . . “The Good Old Days”, . . . “The Blood and Guts Days”, . . . “The All or Nothing Days” . . .

Jeff Bonugli meets ARPwave_mike (instagram@) in an early version of kickboxing, so early in fact, it was still known as Full Contact Karate. Little did these pioneers know, but they were trailblazing for a sport that would eventually evolve into today’s MMA. By the way, that is a young Grand Master Lopez standing next to his instructor, Texas Karate Pioneer Joe Alvarado (also Mike Primeau’s Instructor – the common denominator)

As martial arts competition evolved, and martial artists tested their style vs other styles, many started crossing over and learning multiple styles. Stand up fighters learned ground fighting (Ju-Jitsu, Wrestling, . . . ) and ground fighters learned to stand up (Kickboxing, Boxing and Muay Thai . . . )

Everyone scrambled to learn what everyone else knew.

The Teacher Becomes the Student

While ARPwave_mike was in New York training with future UFC Champ Matt Sarah, Jeff Bonugli went to work with his former karate student and now BJJ Black Belt Jason Yarrington, owner of Ohana Academy.

The Grand Master Becomes the Student

Not only did Jeff Bonugli check his ego at the door and start over as a white belt, so did his instructor, Grand Master Lopez.

 

 

Flash Forward another dozen or so years

• Jeff Bonugli is now 60 years old (counting on an abacus)
• 2 X IBJJF World Masters Champion
• 2 X Hall of Famer – Sport Karate & Kickboxing
• 9th Degree Black Belt and Grand Master of Soryu Karate
• And, still not ready for the rocking chair, but retiring from competition to teach.

2nd Meeting with ARPwave_mike

Mike saw on Facebook an announcement for the Grand Opening for the Jeff Bonugli

Family Jiu-Jitsu and Karate in New Braunfels, Texas

. . . and showed up with his ARPwave machine to do demos.

Mike reconnected with his old teammate, Champ Louis Arnold, met Jason Yarrington-owner of Ohana Academy, and Jason’s right hand man Gabe Reynaga, saw Alyssa Gomez promoted (Congrats), met UFC Badass Alexander “The Great” Hernandez, and had the opportunity to put the ARPwave on head Soryu Karate Instructor Jonny Coppado and Grand Opening host Sarah Burns Bonugli (Suffering from BJJ shoulder damage). And, Oh Yeah, Grand Master Lopez wanted a sample. Good times were had by all.

Obviously Jeff “He Himself” Bonugli was way too busy, but his wife Sarah recognized the opportunity, and invited Mike back to work on Jeff, and the rest is history.

Mike went to work on Jeff’s Neck & Shoulders, Low Back, and Knees. In a short time, Jeff was feeling so much better he started considering a trip to Las Vegas to defend his IBJJF World Masters Title

The 2018 IBJJF World Masters Championship quickly approached. But with ARPwave in his corner, Jeff, at the age of 62, found himself healthy, strong and confident. He entered the tournament looking to bring home the gold for the third time in his career! At the end of the night, Jeff once again, was standing on the top of the podium with gold draped around his neck and a BJJ Black Belt wrapped around his waist.

At any given moment 31 million Americans experience low-back pain. According to experts, as much as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some point in their lives.

Delia had not only found a significant pain decrease but the long term relief she needed so desperately. Check out her inspiring testimonial on how she’s strong stronger and more mobile than ever thanks to ARPwave.

Neck Pain? NO PROBLEM!!

More than 70% of the United States population will experience neck or back pain sometime in their lifetime. Rita found herself amongst those 70% of Americans. Every day was a challenge as she struggled with constant heaviness, tension and pain in her neck and shoulders. Hobbies she once enjoyed participating in every day became impossible. To diminish her symptoms she spent her days sleeping, only dreaming she was back outside in her garden, sewing or taking a simple walk.

 

After diagnosing Rita with a herniated disc in her neck, her chiropractor referred her to our team of experts. Here at Neuro Sports Performance & Rehab Rita tried ARPwave, a neuromuscular therapy. Quickly the weight she experienced on her shoulders and neck that once confined her to her bed was lifted. At the end of her therapy, she was back in her garden, talking long walks and completely back to her normal self. Since her therapy, she has taken on several new hobbies and continued to remain pain free. Check out her testimonial to hear her tell her story!
