Following knee surgery Mark got hard to work at a traditional physical therapy clinic. Months of therapy passed but the results just weren’t there. So he decided to try another traditional physical therapy clinic. But AGAIN, found himself in the same position. Surly it couldn’t happen a third time he presumed while starting therapy at a third traditional therapy clinic. After giving it his all, Mark was still left with knee pain, stiffness and instability.

Desperate for help he turned to his sports surgeon specialist, Dr. Jamie Lynch. She would go on to recommending him to trying ARPwave neuro therapy here at Neuro Sports Performance and Rehab. In just one treatment Mark had experienced more progress than the months of effort put in prior with traditional therapy. After a few weeks, his mobility and strength began to return. Now a few months later he found himself in an entirely different position. A pain free, mobile and strong state finally! Through all of his initial speculations and months of physical and neurological challenges Mark was able to achieve all of this success with ARPwave and the therapists here at Neuro Sports.

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!
