UTSA Powerlifter Uses ARPwave to Overcome Back Pain

Allan and the UTSA Powerlifting Team

 

UTSA Powerlifter Uses ARPwave to Overcome Back Pain

Allan is a member of the UTSA Power Lifting Team and has been competing in powerlifting, football, track and field for most of his life. He and the rest of the UTSA Power Lifting Team were training in preparation for the upcoming national competition.

Allan had been progressing through his work out just fine and then a month out from competition he encountered a big problem. A great deal of pain started to develop in his low back. Weight Allan could once pick up with ease was impossible and painful to pick up now. Anything that required him to sit or bend over for became intolerable. He needed to find a solution fast! ARPwave’s Neuro Therapy is proven to accelerate the rehabilitation rate and decrease recovery time up to 80%, just what Allan needed in this case.

After just three treatments his low back pain had diminished entirely, becoming PAIN FREE! Ten treatments into his ARPwave protocol Allan had fully returned to his training with his team. Picking up right where he left off without hesitation. After completing all of his treatments Allan was completely pain free, back to working out at 100%, and right on track to perform his personal best on a national stage!

 

 

Nothing could stop him now right?!

WRONG. Unfortunately the Coronavirus hit and has delayed the national competition. But when the day comes Allan will be more than ready thanks to ARPwave! Check out his testimonial below!

Knee Injury and Low Back Pain Testimonial

Another Amazing ARPwave Success Story! Knee Injury and Low Back Pain Testimonial

 

 

Tessa’s and her family are very active, competing in obstacle course runs, white water rafting, hiking, cycling, paddle boarding, mountain climbing, high intensity training at the gym and creating new memories outdoors. Tessa and her family were enjoying a day at the lake’s obstacle course when suffered a gruesome knee injury. As she was helping someone over one of the inflatable obstacles they fell onto her knee, tearing her PFL, MCL and dislocating her knee.

 

pain management san antonio

 

Tessa sought out treatment at a traditional physical therapy clinic but unfortunately they could not help her unless she had surgery. A friend of hers recommended that she try ARPwave Neuro Therapy and later that week Tessa would come into Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab for her first ARPwave consultation. After learning about ARPwave’s non-invasive neuro therapy and experiencing the benefits for herself she decided this is the therapy for her!

After completing just HALF her sessions. Tessa completed a Rugged Manic obstacle course run. Where she scaled 10 ft walls, crawled through mud on her hands and knees, swung on a slippery rope, climbed and slid down a super steep slope in freezing cold water all completely pain-free!

Runner Eliminates Back and Leg Pain Using ARPwave

Runner Eliminates Back and Leg Pain Using ARPwave

 

 

Alicia is a relentless runner and dedicated mother of an awesome three-year-old boy. Alicia aims to raise her son in a healthy and active lifestyle. So she began to exercise, run and eat clean with her family. Running became a passion for Alicia and her son but soon she began to experience back and leg pain that would put a stop to their running time together.
During one of her work out classes at the gym, Alicia was paired against a drill Sargent for a competition. As an underdog few thought Alicia stood a chance but to their surprise she beat the drill Sargent! The sweet taste of victory became bitter as she began to experience shooting pain in her back, down her leg, and into her foot. Even after giving it days of rest to recover the pain grew worse and more present. She needed to get help and decided to try Airrosti. Alicia began getting weekly massages, adjustments, exercises and treatments but the symptoms did not improve. Her low back pain began to affect her ability to sleep, sit, stand and walk. Without any success at Airrosti Alicia was ordered to have an MRI performed to see what may be causing her pain. Upon reviewing the results she was diagnosed with a herniated and bulging disc at L5-S1 that is pushing onto her nerve.
Determined to once and for all fix this pain she began to search for options on Google where she came across Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab in San Antonio, Texas. After reading the reviews, watching a few testimonials and seeing all of the positive outcomes she decided ARPwave is something she wanted to try. Each passing ARPwave treatment, Alicia’s pain began to diminish more and more. She started to sleep through the night, sit through a meeting at work and stand on her feet all pain-free! Without any outside training Alicia only underwent ARPwave neuro therapy and after just a few short weeks she was back to running again! By her tenth ARPwave treatment she would go on to run from Austin, to Corpus Christi, TX with a team of 12 others. She also averaged the fastest pace of her life. Normally she averaged a 9 1/2 to 10 minute per mile pace but during the Capital to Cost Run she averaged a 7 1/2 minute per mile pace!
Since completing her ARPwave therapy Alicia has fully returned to running and living life pain-free! In December she entered and completed her first full marathon since her injury. On the sideline of the San Antonio Rock n Roll, her son and husband proudly cheered Alicia on. To her surprise, her son sprinted out into the race, reached for her hand and joined her for another run, once again.
Reunited again with running Alicia set her sights on new goals. Entering one of the toughest Texas trail runs there is, the Hoka One One Rocky 50! A 50-mile course through the woods of Huntsville, TX. She continued with her ARPwave neuro therapy training to improve her sports performance. A little less than a month later Alicia completed the 50-mile race in just under 12 hours. Placing 5th in her division and 18th overall in women! Congratulations on all of your success Alicia, we are excited to see what is to come next!

60 Year Old ARPwave IronWoman

60 Year Old ARPwave IronWoman

ARPwave Therapy San Antonio TX

 

Chung is 60 years old and an avid runner. She initially came into Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab with knee pain. Not only did her knee pain affect her daily life tasks but it hurt her hobby of running detrimentally. After completing a considerably light run she would experience aches, pains and stiffness.

 

Chung’s daughter Andrea is unable to walk or run on her own. But that hasn’t stopped the two of them from sharing this experience together. May Ling rides in a push cart while Chung pushes her on her runs and has even cheered her Andrea on as friend pulled in an inflatable boat on a swim! The loving bond Chung and Andrea share together is incredible and inspiring but her knee pain was stopping this from continuing.

Swimming for 2.4 miles in an hour and a half, cycling for 112 miles in seven hours and running for the final 26.2 miles in five and a half hours. Completing the entire 140.6 mile course in 14 hours and 42 minutes!

We congratulate you Chung on your amazing feat of strength and endurance!

ARPwave Helps Gabe Overcome Shoulder Injury to Win Gold

 

 

ARPwave Helps Gabe Overcome Shoulder Injury to Win Gold

Gabe Reynaga is a skilled BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) professor and competitor for the gym he manages, Ohana Academy in San Antonio. After many years of training and competing, and winning gold at the IBJJF Master Worlds Championship in Las Vegas, his professors awarded him a hard-earned and well-deserved Black Belt. Since earning his black belt Gabe has gone on to compete in four more IBJJF tournaments, bringing home the gold in all four.

In his last match Gabe suffered a serious and very painful shoulder Injury, a complete separation, in a hard fall. With a busy tournament schedule ahead of him, including the defense of his World Title, Gabe did not have time for the traditional R.I.C.E method of healing (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation). Gabe needed to get back on the mat to train and prepare to compete. He needed to fix this shoulder injury fast!

 

Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab started rehabbing Gabe’s shoulder injury using ARPwave Neuro Therapy.

  • ARPwave immediately increased the blood flow to the injury while decreasing the inflammation and swelling, and accelerating the rate of healing.
  • ARPwave also re-educates the muscles of his shoulder joint for correct biomechanics and neuro coordination.
  • ARPwave – Accelerated Recovery & Performance wave.

 

Gabe’s pain quickly diminished and his range of motion returned to normal. Continuing with his ARPwave therapy the rest of the month Gabe’s strength and endurance grew more and more and so did his confidence for the upcoming tournaments. Gabe rapidly recovered from his shoulder injury in a matter of weeks rather than months by using ARPwave neuro therapy. ARPwave Neuro Therapy has helped Gabe jump back into the ring of competition much sooner than expected, to continue his winning ways, and bring home more gold for Ohana Academy and Neuro Sports Performance & Rehab!
