Meet Mike, a military veteran of 10 years who joined the Army in 2009. After graduating from Fort Leonard in Missouri he was sent overseas to serve in Afghanistan. While in the line of duty, Mike suffered a number of injuries from an explosion that left him partially disabled in both of his legs. For his sacrifice, Mike was awarded the Purple Heart Medal. A combat decoration that is awarded to members of the United States Armed Forces who are wounded by an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action.
Following his injury, Mike underwent several surgeries, physical therapy and pain management. All through she had improved and made some progress his legs still had a serious amount of atrophy that left him weak, in bad posture and ultimately in a great deal of pain. Determined to get his life back on Mike started ARPwave neuro therapy.
Mike’s glutes were so atrophied it caused his pelvis to sit unevenly in his wheelchair. Due to this bad posture, the prolonged stress on his hips and back would ultimately lead to chronic low back and leg pain. After starting his ARPwave therapy Mike saw several significant improvements in just a matter of weeks. By using ARPwave we were able to build muscle back into his glutes and legs. This allowed his pelvis to sit back into a neutral position, alleviating a drastic amount of pain.
With continued treatments using ARPwave Mike gained more muscle, independence and eliminated most of his pain. Once bed bound, Mike has returned to hobbies he enjoyed prior to his injury like hunting, fishing, playing sports and going to ball games. He has also gone on to take other monumental steps in life. Recently getting married and having his first born son. Congratulations on all you have overcome and achieved Mike!
