@ARPwaveSA & @HandiApp: Multiple Sclerosis Management

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.

“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😀

“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

ARPwave Treatments to Game Winning Touchdowns!

Mid-season injuries can be detrimental to athletes. A serious injury can end a season in an instant. Less severe injuries can keep an athlete out for weeks to months and linger with them for the remainder of the season, taking a toll on their performance.

Michelle plays Ladies Tackle Football for the Austin Acoustic in the Legends League and in another league for the Texas Legacy. She’s a talented running back and wide receiver for both teams. Towards the end of Michelle’s season, she suffered a MCL sprain to her right knee and a bone bruise to her ankle. With her teams in the hunt for playoffs and ultimately the championship, she had zero time to spare. Her teams needed her back out on the field as soon as possible, due to playoffs being just around the corner. After working with the team’s trainer, she wasn’t getting the results at the rate she needed them. She had to find another solution.

Immediately after starting her ARPwave therapy, Michelle started to see the results she had been looking for. After just three treatments, her pain was eliminated entirely from her leg. Following a few more treatments, she was able to get back into the gym for training and fully participate in football practice. Michelle got the results she and her team desperately needed. It showed in full force her first game back in the Western Conference Championship for the Legends League. Michelle and the Austin Acoustic found themselves trailing behind with time running out. The quarterback dropped back and delivered a game winning touchdown to Michelle! Clinching a chance at the title in the Legends Cup Championship against the undefeated Chicago Bliss. That’s one heck of a way to make a return back from an injury and just in time. Michelle and her team would go on to lose a hard fought game 19-28 in the championship game but she was able to give it her best with no limitations from her prior injuries.

The story doesn’t stop there. Michelle would go on to lead her Texas Legacy team through the playoffs and to their fifth championship! Congratulations on your tremendous success Michelle!!

SHATTERING SKEPTICISM: Hip Surgery Recovery Back on Track Thanks to ARPwave

In the last 10 years our understanding and ability to treat hip injuries has grown exponentially. With new state of the art surgical and rehabilitation equipment we have been able to return people to their sports and lives in ways we could not have imagined in the past.

Christian was an extremely active individual. He weight trained, played basketball and danced weekly. During a personal training session at the gym in 2016, he suffered and extremely painful hip injury. After many miss-diagnosis, he finally discovered he had torn his labrum in his left hip. The hip labrum has many important functions, including shock absorption, joint lubrication, pressure distribution, and aiding in stability. Damage to the labrum results in all of these becoming compromised. Following his diagnosis Christian underwent orthoscopic surgery to repair his torn labrum.

Eager to get back to his active lifestyle Christian began his rehabilitation process with confidence. But even after “graduating” from traditional physical therapy, he wasn’t back to his normal capabilities. His labrum may now be structurally healed but his range of motion was extremely limited, forcing his body to develop compensations around movements and positions daily. In addition his muscles were still extremely weak and imbalanced.

Dissatisfied with his current status he went on to try massage therapy, chiropractic care, and Airrosti. Christian had confidence in these treatment styles to return him to his normal active life. But still, they all fell short in providing him the results he wanted.  It almost seemed impossible at times that he would ever get back to doing the things he loved but he continued to seek out other possible answers. Scrolling through the web he came across a “Free Consultation” for ARPwave neuro therapy with Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab. So once again Christian found himself in another consultation. He was a bit skeptical of this cutting edge treatment alternative due to the history with previous treatments.

After undergoing an examination and a single ARPwave treatment his skepticism was shattered. The results he received from just that one treatment sparked hope again for Christian. “I was convinced I was going into something really, really, REALLY beneficial” he goes on the state.

Upon completing his ARPwave therapy Christian has completely eliminated his pain and regained his mobility. He is finally back in the gym training, playing basketball with his buddies and on track to getting back into his normal lifestyle. Listen to his inspiring testimonial in the video above.

When No One Could Help, ARPwave ANSWERED.

Christian, a talented baseball player was suffering from debilitating knee pain that was having a detrimental effect on his game. He and his family looked for help and answers from some of THE best sport medicine clinics in the San Antonio area. After two years of consultations, examinations, x-rays and MRIs Christian and his family still didn’t have an answer nor a solution to treat his knee pain. Two years of constant pain and irritation on and off the field took a significant toll on his baseball game and athleticism. For Christian baseball was everything. He gave it his all and it even got him a scholarship with Trinidad State College in Colorado. This is such an accomplishment for a young player but unfortunately they had to pull their offer due to his recent injuries and struggling game because of it.

Luckily Christian found himself here at Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab. On his first appointment we were able to provide the origination of the problem and a solution on how to treat it using the ARPwave. Less than halfway through his neuro therapy program he was completely pain free and regained full mobility and usage. Since Christian has completed his ARPwave therapy he’s back on the field training, going to showcases and personal workouts in hopes to be playing baseball for a college this upcoming season. Christian, his family and the team at Neuro Sports Performance have high hopes for him to gain a new scholarship now that he is pain free thanks to ARPwave!

Overcoming Sports Injuries: The Quickest Way Back Onto The Field

An injury to an athlete is not only detrimental physically but also neurologically. Kaitlyn, a college soccer player tore her ACL in the middle of the season, bringing an end to hers. After undergoing knee surgery, as a strong and determined athlete she sought to get back on to the field and training as soon as possible.

The current treatment model for sports injuries has athletes undergo an extensive rehab process that can last a few weeks with minor injuries or up to a year with more serious injuries like an ACL tear or Tommy John Surgery. ARPwave has broken this current model. Healing minor injuries in the matter of minutes or days and more serious injuries like an ACL tear in 7 weeks!

How? Injuries in the body come from a loss of neurological function, NOT physiological function in the case of non-contact injuries. If you treat an injury or surgery with rehab from a neurological stand point, then your recovery time is vastly accelerated with better results. Traditional rehab will do absolutely nothing to address where the ACL tear came from because they will only be treating the physiological component of where the problem ended. Until the origin of where the ACL tear came from is treated, no amount of rest, ice, physical therapy or strength training is going to give you long term results; neither will it get you back in an expedited time frame.

Kaitlyn is a perfect example of this accelerated process. After she completed her 7 week ACL rehabilitation protocol with ARPwave therapy and additional strength training with Neuro Sports she’s back to training, exercising at the gym and running in just 3 short months! Where as her friend “is 5 months down the road into doing traditional therapy and just now starting to run”. Listen to her the entire journey and testimonial through the ARPwave Rapid Rehab processes here at Neuro Sports Performance & Rehab bellow.

ARPwave Addresses Ankle/Foot Issues

👣Humans evolved natural shock absorbers in our feet and calves to lessen the impact forces we experience daily.

💪🏼Our muscles don’t only act as shock absorbers, but also recycle stored energy to improve running/walking efficiency.

🏃🏻‍♀️These natural “shocks” will to work effectively if you heel strike – a technique made possible (and in fact promotes) by super thick heel cushioned running shoes.

🤕Without our shocks working, a runner’s likelihood of injury dramatically increases while their performance plummets.

👟Loose the moon-boots (responsibly) and take charge of your own body!!

⚡️With #ARPwave Therapy we are able to rapidly re-educate the body back to correct biomechanics (mid-foot strike) and reestablish efficient force absorption.
