Hamstring Strains

Don’t let your hamstring strain take you out of the games for the season


The hamstring consists of 3 primary muscles and the adductor muscle groups. When running or sprinting the hamstring operates to control the extension of the leg and bending the leg for the next stride. If the hamstring contracts too soon or is overloaded it will cause a strain.

Treatment Options:

  • Standard care – Compression, Rest, Ice 24 hours, heat. After 3 days start gentle stretching, light exercises. Length of healing time – 4-10 weeks for most. Probability of re-strain is very high.
  • Advanced sports chiropractic care – Compression, Rest for 3 days, MARC Pro stimulation to increase blood flow, supplement recommendations, laser therapy, Graston Technique, Active Release, Exercises, functional taping – 2-8 week back to sport. Probability of re-strain is moderate (depending on emphasis and compliance of home exercise program)
  • ARP Wave – Back on the field in 10 days or LESS – ARP wave treatments correct the neurologic origin of the injury and stimulate the conditions to heal faster than any other method.

Your injury was caused by your body’s inability to absorb force. The ARP Wave re-trains your brain to use the muscles properly. When working correctly, the muscles will absorb the force of activity without injury.

The ARP wave system gives us the ability to go in and find where the injury originated, treat the issue at its origin without surgery and without drugs and once this is accomplished, eliminate the physiological symptom… permanently.

Accelerated Injury Recovery Program:Back on The Field In 10 Days (Or Less)


In the VERY FIRST SESSION, with the ARP Wave device and proprietary protocols, you will see an immediate reduction in pain in the injured area and an immediate increase in your range of motion and flexibility Why? Because after locating the origin of your injury in this first session, we are able to put the muscle into ECCENTRIC CONTRACTION (lengthened) and take you through the movement that hurts the most. The “before” and “after” in this very first session will be astonishing, as we will have turned on the appropriate muscles and transferred the force AWAY FROM THE INJURY and into the correct muscles (shock absorbers). With the muscles in eccentric contraction, they are now firing properly and absorbing force.

At the end of this FIRST SESSION you will see a 25% reduction in pain and a vast INCREASE in range of motion. In the second session another 25% reduction in pain and so on until session 4 where typically you’ll be PAIN FREE! How is that possible? We will have broken down the scar tissue and reduced the inflammation in the muscle that was not absorbing force and, more importantly, transferred the force AWAY from the injury and into the muscles; eliminating pain all together and allowing for active movement. Traditional therapy of rest, ice, compression, elevation and stim would have continued to focus on where it ended up and the healing process would STILL be in its infancy. Ever wonder why players are lost for long durations of time and even for seasons? Because traditional therapy does NOT work. Under the best circumstances therapy will speed the process up slightly and RARELY will correct the faulty movement that caused the injury.

Fixing Movement is tricky work – it is estimated that a nerve must fire at least 4000 – 6000 times in order to improve communication between the brain and muscles. That is a lot of exercises on an injury with traditional therapy. On the ARP Wave System, however, we are contracting the muscles at 500 times per second neurologically. That is like doing 40,000 repetitions of exercise in a single session – all in perfect form for true changes in your movement patterns.

At the same time, flushing blood to the injured area while treating the injury with ACTIVE movement. Something no other therapy can replicate and allowing us to take an 8 week recovery time frame for example, down to 8 days or less with BETTER RESULTS and a stronger player. Treat the ORIGIN neurologically, you ELIMINATE the injury physiologically at an accelerated pace.


In sessions 5-10 we will now take you through proprietary protocols to break the neurological pattern that caused this injury in the first place. In essence, teach the muscles to respond in the correct way and move properly neurologically. Once this is accomplished, you are PAIN FREE, INJURY FREE.

After your 10th session, you’re back to the activity that was causing your pain, whether it be running, jumping, lifting weights or whatever the activity was painful before you came to see us. After the 10th session, you’re back on the field!


In sessions 10-20 we have proprietary protocols to strengthen the muscles and avoid future injury. This is again – not your usual rehab – The ARP Wave will help you become stronger, faster, and more stable. Sessions last about 30 minutes and you will work harder than you ever thought possible without weights.

Thus there is a reason more than 650 NFL Players trust us to get them back fast. Because it works… and it works FAST. The ARP Wave System can get players back from injury 60-70% FASTER than traditional therapy. When a player comes to us after being told they will be out 6-8 weeks or more, they know that we will get them back in a fraction of that time frame. They KNOW this because we will find the ORIGIN, treat it, eliminate the physiological symptom and in the process make them stronger and FASTER than they were prior to the injury! No one can do what we can do when it comes to accelerating the healing process. NO ONE. And for those athletes that make their living with their body, its results… FAST RESULTS, that matters most.
