Table of Contents

Executive Summary

  • ARPWAVE therapy is an approach that uses electrical currents along with a regimen of active range-of-motion and other exercise techniques to help speed up the body’s natural recovery process and provide pain relief.
  • ARPWAVE therapy is an alternative approach to surgery or invasive procedures.
  • Benefits can include faster muscle recovery, pain reduction, and reduced inflammation, among others.
  • ARPWAVE therapy is a helpful option for people who have experienced a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, a ligament tear, and joint pain that does not improve.  

ARPWAVE therapy, also known as Accelerated Recovery Performance (ARP) Wave therapy, is a form of neuromuscular therapy that can help speed up and promote the body’s natural recovery process. This form of therapy uses a device that delivers electrical currents into the muscles in conjunction with a regimen of active range-of-motion and other exercise techniques.

ARPWAVE therapy helps to ease tension, pain, and discomfort in muscles and is used as an alternative approach to surgery for a range of muscular injuries. Both athletes and non-athletes can benefit from using ARPWAVE therapy to recover from injury or improve general mobility.

This unique treatment offers a wealth of benefits, from increased athletic performance to improved everyday comfort. With all the advantages and minimal drawbacks compared to other procedures, it can be a great option if you’re the right candidate. As you consider whether you may benefit from ARPWAVE therapy, it’s important to know how it works and what to expect. 

Things to Know About ARPWAVE

ARPWAVE therapy is a non-invasive approach to pain relief for people who have experienced a muscle injury or a range of additional medical conditions. If you’re thinking ARPWAVE may be a good option for you, there are three key things you should know about the process and how it works.

1. How ARPWAVE Therapy Works

ARPWAVE therapy works by using electric currents to rebalance the charges in injured cells. When cells in your muscle tissue are damaged, they develop a negative charge. In the short term, this negative charge is helpful for attracting white blood cells to the area to promote healing.

In the long term, though, this can lead to the development of disruptive scar tissue, which can limit your range of motion, decrease flexibility, and increase your risk of future injury. The advanced technology of ARPWAVE therapy pinpoints areas of negative charges and then sends an electric signal through the muscles to restore a positive charge to the cells and promote recovery.

ARPWAVE also works to make muscles more resilient. Injuries often occur when the body is unable to properly absorb force. During exercise and activity, muscles tighten and shorten, making them less likely to handle force. ARPWAVE therapy works to keep muscles relaxed before engaging in sports or exercise so that they can better absorb the stress of the activity.

In some cases, ARPWAVE therapy can be hard work as you adjust to different levels of exercise and work through existing discomfort. Because of this, it’s important that you are extra careful to take steps to promote your body’s recovery. During the process, you should prioritize getting adequate amounts of sleep, eating healthy and protein-rich meals, and minimizing your alcohol intake.

2. What Conditions ARPWAVE Can Treat

One of the advantages of ARPWAVE therapy is its versatility. Because it is a non-invasive and low-risk approach, there are many people who can benefit, and there are only a few limitations. ARPWAVE therapy is considered an alternative to surgery for a list of health conditions.   

ARPWAVE therapy can help support anyone who has experienced any of the following:

  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritis
  • A need for joint replacement surgery
  • Recovery from joint replacement surgery
  • Neurological disease
  • Spinal cord injury
  • An ACL, MCL, PCL, LCL, or meniscus tear

If you’ve experienced any of the above conditions, then you should discuss trying ARPWAVE therapy with your doctor. ARPWAVE is a good option for most people. However, if you are pregnant, have a history of blood clots, or have an implanted electrical device, you may not be a good candidate.

3. The Benefits of ARPWAVE Therapy

ARPWAVE therapy offers many benefits, but the number one advantage for most people is that it is a non-invasive and non-surgical approach. Surgery is often the last resort option for people experiencing pain, especially since it can come with considerable downtime and a long post-recovery process.

ARPWAVE therapy fits into a variety of lifestyles and works within your current routine so that you can experience relief without the disruption of surgery. This approach also keeps you active and in motion, so you don’t have to completely derail your level of activity and rebuild from surgery.

Some of the additional benefits of ARPWAVE therapy include:

  • Faster recovery from an injury or surgery
  • Improved muscle function and strength
  • Improved range of motion
  • Pain reduction
  • Enhanced athletic performance
  • No need for medication
  • Controls inflammation
  • Prevents atrophy of the muscles
  • Improved sleep from relaxed muscles

With the many great benefits of ARPWAVE therapy, anyone can utilize it to improve their quality of life. Although many professional athletes have used this approach, ARPWAVE therapy is not exclusive to athletes. Many people can benefit from the advantages of this pain management approach. This alternative therapy is great for people who work regularly on their feet, wake up with stiff muscles, or experience joint pain.

If you’re considering ARPWAVE therapy, talk to your healthcare provider about whether it’s a good option for you.
