ARPwave ACL Rapid Rehabilitation After Knee Surgery

ARPwave ACL Rapid Rehabilitation After Knee Surgery

Erick is an avid martial artist who experienced a gnarly knee injury during a martial arts class one day. In result, he would undergo knee surgery where they would have to completely reconstruct his ACL. Following his surgery, Erick immediately started his physical therapy eager to get back to training and his normal quality of life. But after what seemed like ages in a traditional physical therapy, he had seen hardly any progress in his knee.

With unannounced instability, severe muscle atrophy, decreased mobility and now chronic pain he sought out a fresh start somewhere else but would get an unexpected answer. During his initial consultation and examination it quickly dawned on Erick that ARPwave neuromuscular therapy was not a traditional physical therapy but could provide the rapid recovery he was looking for.

Not sure what exactly he was in store for Erick underwent his first ARPwave neuromuscular therapy treatment. The  skepticism Erick had prior to the treatment, vanished! Following his treatment his knee felt the best it had in a really long time. The chronic pain that seemed to constantly present itself completely went away and he gained far more mobility and range on motion. So Erick proceeded with his ARPwave protocol mastering every exercise we could throw at him over the following weeks.

In just a few months Erick has seen more progress in his knee with ARPwave than ever before. Pain was no longer a part of his life. The mobility in his knee had improved and finally reached normal range of motion. With great improvement in his stability and strength Erick has returned to exercising at the gym and is soon to be back on the mat training.

“ARPwave has been hands-down the best decision I have ever made”

“ARPwave has been hands-down the best decision I have ever made”

Recently Neuro Sports Performance has had the pleasure of treating a passionate martial artist name Elizabeth. Elizabeth was finishing up a kung fu class one day when she suffered a knee injury that left her leg like a limp spaghetti noodle. A MRI would later confirm that she tore her ACL and would require a full reconstruction and knee surgery. With reassurance from her surgeon that her knee would be “good as new” in a year, she had high hopes for her recovery following surgery.

Six months down the road, Elizabeth had given her knee time to heal and completes her prescribed physical therapy. Looking at her progress and where she was physically, “devastated would be an understatement”. Knee pain was a constant occurrence in her life. Some things that were simple now seemed impossible. She wondered if her knee “would ever be normal again” and even at times thought “it would be easier if I just lost my whole leg”. Then she came to the conclusion “that regular physical therapy is crap” and looked for something better. Through some research she would discover ARPwave Neuro Therapy here at Neuro Sports Performance. Which she refers to as a “life saver” now. Elizabeth dedicated herself fully to the ARPwave rehabilitation protocol and her knee responded fantastically. “I look forward to being able to kick a bag again soon” she remarked eagerly.

The pain that seemed to always linger and sometimes debilitate her, disappeared. Her mobility, strength and stability rapidly improved. As her strength grew, so did her confidence. Once and for all she was able to return to martial arts with great optimism. “ARPwave has been hands-down the best decision I have ever made …I believe, wholeheartedly, that I will come out of this experience a better martial artist, and a better person. I look forward to being able to kick a bag again soon, polishing up my Hung Gar forms, sparring, and finally testing for my first degree black sash.”

Shortly after starting his therapy Dee noticed tremendous amounts of progress over such a short period of time. Just a few weeks into his therapy his range of motion had fully returned and he was able to support his full body weight. Much further along than any traditional therapy would have provided.

But with Dee’s dedication, hard work, support from all of his fellow Ohana Academy members, family, friends and of course his ARPwave therapist Mike, Dee made it to the podium. Finishing __ in his division.

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.

Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab - ARPwave Saves Pro-Basketball Player’s Career After 2nd ACL Surgery

ARPwave Saves Pro-Basketball Player’s Career After 2nd ACL Surgery

Background

A little background on Mike Whites’ injury. Mike originally injured his ACL during his standout college career as a UTSA Roadrunner. After surgery and traditional physical therapy Mike was able to once again play basketball at a high level as a professional, but the knee was never the same. The knee was weak, it required a brace, and needed to be iced often due to swelling.

The second time Mike suffered the same ACL injury, it looked like his career was over. After the second ACL surgery Mike didn’t feel like the physical therapy was helping, it was only teaching him to work around the weakened muscles supporting the knee. Mike was not yet ready to give up, and while searching for a solution, he found Neuro Sports Performance & Rehab, San Antonio’s exclusive ARPwave clinic.

In Mike White’s own words:
“I have an incredible testimonial for ARPwave.”

“I came in after knee surgery, I was going through physical therapy and it really wasn’t giving me the results I wanted. I met Paul (Neuro Sports Performance & Rehab), and he actually came through for me, it kind of saved my life and my career.”

“The ARPwave has changed my life, changed my body, and changed every aspect of how I view rehab and therapy.”

“I am very appreciative and very grateful. It has me feeling better than ever, one hundred percent better, even better than when I was in high school. And that is how great I feel, especially since getting the weight down too.”

“It definitely was a challenge, a great challenge, but it was worth it, and I am glad I stuck with it, and I am glad I stuck with ARPwave. And like I said, I got incredible results. If you have any type of injury, you should listen to my testimonial and I will let you know that it will definitely give you the results you want.”

“I had a torn ACL, a torn meniscus, I wasn’t even supposed to be playing anymore. The ARPwave actually took away my arthritis, it took away the scar tissue, it took away all the bad gunk (swelling) that I had in my knee. Now, I don’t even need to wear a knee brace, I don’t need any of that. I can play on my own, without all that gear, and I feel light, and my leg, actually my quad has been built back up, and it is still being built back up to a level where I have my balance back, and I have my leg back up to full strength. After the ARPwave got rid of that scar tissue and then built strength in the muscles supporting the knee, the ACL and the meniscus, it gave me the results that I needed.”

“I just got signed!”

“It’s been a crazy hectic month training and trying to prepare myself, but the ARPwave got me back, just 4 1/2 months (since the injury) and I wasn’t even supposed to be working out for 7 to 9 months after ACL surgery.”

“I got signed by a team in Singapore, The Falcons, and I am looking forward to it, it’s a great opportunity to go over there and win a championship with this team, and actually get to play with one of my past teammates.”

“I am looking forward to it, and I can’t thank Neuro Sports Performance & Rehab enough, for coming through for me, and actually sticking with me through the process, and pushing me and being there for me, and I appreciate it! Thank you!”

Come-Back Update: In Mike’s first game back he led his team with 25 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 blocked shots. Congratulations Mike White. Your determination is motivational!

Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab - ACL Surgeries End Most Athletes Careers

ACL Surgeries End Most Athletes Careers

In a recent New York Daily News article, the author sited an August 25, 2014 study from the British Journal of Medicine which determined that 55% of all athletes who undergo ACL reconstruction surgery never return to competitive level sports.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, about 200,000 ACL knee injuries happen each year in the United States and half of those are surgically repaired.

With the rising number of younger athletes injuring their ACL’s at alarming rates, the majority are having their competitive sports dreams dashed before many of them even reach college.

There’s good news!

According to a medical study conducted by the University of Hawaii’s, John A. Burns School of Medicine, 25 patients with ACL injuries where studied to determine the effectiveness of the ARPwave Therapy.

This therapy has been around for over a decade but was mainly reserved for professional athletes.

According to the study, 14 of these patients used the ARPwave therapy post ACL surgery while the others used traditional (PT) Physical Therapy. Every ARPwave patient recovered faster from surgery than the other patients.

At Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab, we are excited to announce that we are the only ARPwave Clinic in the Greater San Antonio area . We offer the full range of ARPwave therapies and protocols to not only help athletes recover better and faster than with traditional physical therapies but also, in most cases, we are able to prevent the ACL surgery altogether!
