Don’t let your shoulder pain keep you out of the gym
Shoulder pain is a complicated problem. First let’s talk about the non-traumatic shoulder problems. The number one reason for shoulder pain is poor stabilization of the rotator cuff followed by impingement, wear and tear and eventually, inflammation or tearing of part of the rotator cuff. For most athletes when the pain starts in their shoulders – they ignore it and try to work through it. You don’t have to live with the pain! If you fix the problem – you may save your rotator cuff!
If you are an overhead athlete – CrossFit, Body Building, Weight lifting, Tennis, Volleyball, ect. you will need your shoulders to be working correctly – bad movement will eventually catch up to you. The ARP Wave has the unique ability to locate the neurologic origin of your pain and fix it. Changing your movement patterns can eliminate you shoulder pain and by strengthening the rotator cuff you can stay pain free and get back to your training. The neuro-therapy makes it possible to change at a rate that is amazing.
BACK TO SPORTS IN 10 DAYS (OR LESS) ACCELERATED INJURY RECOVERY PROGRAM
WHY LET AN INJURY RUIN YOUR SEASON!
Let’s face it – most seasons are way too short to get injured and still play. Typically you have around 10 weeks in a season. If you get an injury and go the normal PT route, you won’t be back for at least 4-6 weeks. You can do better!! Most injured athletes can get back on the field in 10 days or less – yes that is exactly what I said. Here is how:
The ARP Wave technology works on the theory that injuries occur when our body is not able to absorb force correctly. If the muscles are working correctly they act as “shock absorbers” by creating an eccentric contraction (controlled lengthening) of the muscles. When you don’t absorb force correctly the force is placed on the joints or tendons that are made to guide the motion – not absorb the force. Then injury occurs!!
In traditional medicine, injury care is directed at the area of the injury which is where the pain ended up. ARP Wave protocols search for the neurologic origin of the problem. Treatments work to provide a Neuro-therapy and re-establish proper communication within the muscles and nerves. When the muscles are able to absorb force correctly – your pain goes away, your injury heals, and you are stronger, more balanced and able to get back to your sport.
SESSIONS 1-4: PAIN FREE WITH ACTIVE MOVEMENT
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 neurologic pathway must fire in correct movement 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. That is like doing 40,000 repetitions of exercise in a single session – all in perfect form for true changes in your movement patterns. The ARP Wave current also causes substantial increase in blood flow to the injured area while treating the injury with ACTIVE movement. Something no other therapy can replicate. This allows 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.
Sessions 5-10: PAIN FREE, ACTIVE MOVEMENT… AND BACK ON THE FIELD!
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!
Sessions 10-20: STRENGTHENING AND LONG TERM STABILITY!
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.
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.
YOU WILL FEEL BETTER YOUR VERY FIRST SESSION… GUARANTEED OR YOU PAY NOTHING!
In your very first visit with us we will locate the origin of your symptom, take you through a treatment, and at the end of this session, you will have increased your range of motion by 25% and seen a similar reduction in pain- GUARANTEED. If you don’t think that we can HELP YOU to eliminate your elbow pain, you pay NOTHING.
We are that confident.

TORN ROTATOR CUFF OR LABRUM TEARS
IF you have been diagnosed with a confirmed full thickness tear with retraction then you have several options:
There have been several case studies of rotator cuff re-heal post ARP Wave treatments. This is an exciting area of future study for the treatments.
