What is the story behind @HandiApp?
@HadiApp, a handy app for the handicap. Living in a wheelchair or scooter can be daunting whether that be from an injury, birth defect or disease. The founder of HandiApp was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis but he believes dealing with a disability does not mean you are disabled. “Not disabled by my disability from MS” reads at the top and center of his bio. Wheelchair users or #wheelers as he refers to them, have to take things into account an average person wouldn’t think of. Such as, the turn radius in bathrooms, elevation/terrain changes, traveling accommodations, the height of sinks/tables, and much more. HandiApp’s goal is to share the good and the bad accessibility in San Antonio, TX and across the country. Through their social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram, @HandiApp. In hopes to provide as much insight to fellow wheel chair users in order make this an #AccessibleWorld for all.
Along the journey, HandiApp’s chiropractor had recommenced he try ARPwave in order to manage his multiple sclerosis. HandiApp came to Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab to get some relief from some extremely tight and weak muscle groups in a variety of areas throughout his body. The most bothersome being his calves, hips, lower back and neck. With all of this “tightness” across his body, HandiApp found himself becoming less and less mobile. Since his very first treatment with ARPwave Neuro Therapy he’s had a tremendous amount of relief, increased mobility and decreased discomfort. This has allowed him to fly to California, go to a concert, check out some new spots in San Antonio and share his experience with all of his followers. The following posts will take you through HandiApp’s inspiring and continuing journey with ARPwave here at NSP&R.
BLOG UPDATES: NEW TO OLD
“When you can’t sleep and you feel like you got some still in the tank. Do work💪🏽 this work out felt great…been using my @arpwavesa PRS for a few months and the results show😁”
Check out @HandiApp’s ARPwave PRS workout! By incorporating the ARPwave into his workout he is able to rapidly reeducate his joints for correct bio mechanics, optimize his bodies ability to absorb force, build muscle faster, gain mobility and manage his multiple sclerosis!
@handi.app “-Sorry I’ve been away and haven’t posted much. Having been feeling great for awhile, my MS reminded me . Extreme fatigue and mild cases of flare ups have set me back. Always wanting to stay in bed and just do nothing,,,MS is crazy…so many different side effects, it’s hard to stay at peace with yourself. I am blessed to have such an amazing wife @tatiapuga, who pushes me to keep going and stay strong.
-it is now 3:51am and I am wide awake(another symptom of MS- insomnia). And guess who gets me to do something rather than just toss and turn in bed….yup, that’s right….@tatiapuga! She’s a trooper, hell she is an #mswarriorwife. Pushes me to get on my Nustep and helps me with hooking up my @ArpWavePRS. She’s said, “let’s get some frustration out and try to wear yourself out!!” I love her and this is what happened:
“Yesterday I had the most graceful fall ever! I stood up and just started to walk(in my head I thought I could). But nothing moved except me falling straight forward😫. I bent my knees so they hit the floor first, put my hands forward next and basically did a push down so the impact would be absorbed!🙌🏽 now on the floor I was like “Did I really just do that”‼️‼️100% credit to @ARPwaveSA and to myself for sticking with it. After all my #muscleatrophy from sitting in my #wheelchair, I am TOTTALY noticing my muscles new found ability to engage. In am so happy with my #ARPtherapy and look forward to my future which I have not done for a couple years👊🏽Not living day by day for the 1st time is very 🧡 warming! Thank you @neurosportsperformance @ARPwaveSA @TravisBoyd

MORE from @HandiApp’s trip to California with the ARPwave Personal Recovery System!
“I really can’t get enough from this PRS(personal recovery system) from @arpwavesa!! For the 1st time in a long time I had 6 straight hrs of sleep last night 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 –
Right now I’m doing a cafe protocol to loosen them and to help stop my clonus! Also doing quad/hami to continue this awesome feeling of not being so spastic!!
I need everyone to look into @arpwave because for me this is a game changer and I want it for you!!!!! IT REALLY WORKS👍🏽👍🏽

Check out @handi.app using the ARPwave Personal Recovery System while he travels!
“Yesterday was such a long and exhausting day: started off with only a few hours of sleep, followed by a 6hr travel time from SA to LA, then sight seen for a few hours after landing. I was SPENT, had major spasticity, leg spasms, hip pain and my clonus was out of control!
Trying out the ARPwave PRS rental unit while I’m in LA. The PRS(Personal Recovery System) was able to address all those problems quickly and left me feeling loose and pain free🙌🏽 Now I don’t have to miss out on therapy while I’m on the road again. Looking forward to experimenting with this at home system. Have a question about what I do to manage my MS symptoms, ask away because what it does for me I wish it for you🧡🧡

@HandiApp – “Got to try the Permobi F5 at the PVA Health Summit #summitpva #handiapp #accessibleworld”
@HandiApp – “Demastrating @arpwavesa to the @mssociety at the @pva1946 #summitpva in Orlando FL👍🏽”
“This past weekend my awesome wife @tatiapuga and I attended the @pva1946 Paralyzed Veterans of America Health Summit in Orlando, FL representing HandiApp! Our goal was to spread the word about HandiApp and learn. Had an amazing time talking and learning about new equipment and ideas for those of us with physical limitations. I had the opportunity to try out a sit to stand power chair by @Permobil that was absolutely fantastic, the Pendulum MX-4 weight-training system designed especially for wheelchair users, and the Thevo Therapeutic Bed. More detailed posts on these pieces of equipment to come 😁 @arpwavesa was also in attendance showing how ARPWave neuro therapy is the wave of the future (pun intended) for physical therapy. Thanks to the ARP Wave team I was able to demonstrate for the @MSsociety how I have been managing my MS symptoms in the hope of helping others. Thank you, to all of you who are making a difference by making life a bit easier for our Military Service Members and the rest of us disabled folks!”

@HandiApp vs Wife: ARPwave Showdown!
Paul and his wife go head to head in their ARPwave treatment. With a wager of last one to 100% has to do the dishes they give it their all in multiple exercises! Find out who won the wager below.
“Today I woke up to a massive double leg spasm. For the next few hours it came and went which triggered Clonus (a series of involuntary muscular contractions). It was not a good day until after my ARP session @ARPwaveSA.
Accelerated Recovery & Performance-Neuro Therapy & Training, better know as ARPwave, addressed my problem and my day got better! I did two protocols: one to address my hip flexors and the other to address everything from my knees to toes!! Being wheelchair dependent I’m always sitting down which makes my hip flexors tight. As soon as I try to stand up, my body pulls me forward. – My amazing wife @tatiapuga has a bulging lumbar disk and uses ARP to address the issue. She had a maintenance visit today and we had ourselves a couples ARP therapy. After our session we felt Great! I could stand upright with actual posture and my legs have not spasmed since The wife has great movement and NO pain!
Please look into ARP (@ARPwaveSA ). They have places all over. I use it for my MS symptoms management and it’s not a pillIt actually addresses my muscle tightness, spasms and body pain instead of just numbing the issue. I love ARP. I am always looking for just a moment of “normality” and after my sessions I get that. I wish this for you. #MSwarrior #arpwavesa #arpwavetherapy”
If the big smile on Paul’s face as he shows off not needing a ball in the video doesn’t say it all, @HandiApp’s hands stayed DRY for the night!
One of our favorite patients @handi.app putting up another 💯 during one of his #ARPwave treatments. Paul uses ARPwave to manage his #MultipleSclerosis symptoms like muscle spasms, atrophy, stiffness and pain. Check out some of the progress he’s made on his strength, stability and control!
Multiple Sclerosis Management with ARPwave: Leg Day!
“Toe raises with @ARPwaveSA
Had a great ARP session with Filli today. Did strengthening on my glutes and calves. Working at 240 contractions per second…yes that’s right per second. Look at that muscle go. Didn’t even know he was still there. Until today, I hadn’t been able to do toe lifts in forever! Do you have any of these symptoms? What has helped you? #accessibleworld #handiapp #arpwavesa #disabilitystrong”
Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab share a clinic facility with Huebner Chiropractic. Huebner Chiropractic held an October photo competition with the office skeleton, Ralph McBones. The patient who posted the best photo would receive an hour massage. After finished a great session of ARPwave neuro therapy, Paul became aware of the competition on the LAST day of October, Halloween! He would go on the win the competition and hour massage! Congratulations @handiapp!!
I love Huebner Chiropractic. The employees are awesome, Dr. Early and her team make you feel so welcome you are looking forward your next visit. I am always wanting to feel just normal without pain even if it is just for a sec. I get exactly that from my adjustments…Relif and comfort that last through the day and has lasting effects with constant maintenance; this is why I love my Hubner Chriopactic 🎃💀”
“After a week of traveling my body reverted back to spasms, tightness, clonus and overall stiffness. Got my ARP session with Paul today and all I can say is…look at that smile on my face. Fighting against MS is rough, depressing, stressful and a constant battle. Always just looking for a bit of “normality”, ARP has given me just that. Please look into @arpwavesa. As it has helped me, I hope it can help you.”
“Can’t get enough of this ARP therapy! Had a strengthening session with Travis today, and my muscles were engaging. Haven’t felt a muscle move in my leg like that since I can remember!!! When #MS says no, you make your body say YES. #disabilitystrong 💪” – HandiApp
Check out this incredible BEFORE and AFTER ARPwave Therapy. This particular patient has been suffering from extremely tight hip flexors from prolonged sitting in his various wheelchairs/scooters. You can see in the BEFORE (left) he’s unable to stand up fully without an immense pull in the front of his hips. AFTER (right) a treatment with #ARPwave he was able to stand up completely without any discomfort. We’re excited to see what future success we’ll have together!
Here what’s @handi.app had to say about his therapy “Another great session with Travis @arpwavesa . From being in a seated position all the time my hip flexors are weak which causes a pull on my posture. After my session I am able to stand up right without the pain or hardship of trying. To all my #Wheelers, please look into ARP as it has helped me, I wish it for you!” – HandiApp
“3rd session of ARP with Travis @ArpWaveSA! Had a great loosening protocol on my legs(they were super tight and now are NOT)‼️Also had work done on my back/neck/shoulders because I’ve been experiencing tingles and tightness with limited range of motion, especially after our trip to San Diego. Went from not being able to move my neck or rotate my head to having almost my full range of motion in my neck!! And all within 30 minutes. Thank you Travis for the stretch and workout💪🏽💪🏽 can’t wait to see what’s next😀
Please follow me and help make this world an #accessibleworld for me and many others like me 😊#handiapp @handi.app @handiapp1

“Had my 1st NeuroMuscluar Stimulation therapy session Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab with Paul. Also known as #ARP wave system. I have extreme leg muscle spasms (and nerve damage) from my #ms making it impossible for me to move my foot/toes up&down over the last few months. During my treatment and for 5 hrs after, my calf muscle was finally relaxed and I could move my foot/toes. It may not look like much but it’s A LOT to me. Haven’t moved my toes/foot in a long time. Thank you NeuroSports for the stimulation
