Frequently Asked Questions
Your Questions About ARP wave Neuro Therapy AnsweredWe've put together some commonly asked questions to give you more information on ARPwave Neuro Therapy.
1What is ARPwave Neuro Therapy?
ARP stands for Accelerated Recovery Performance. ARP Wave Neuro Therapy is a drug-free alternative therapy that treats the neurological origin of all physiological symptoms. It is also a supplement to other types of physiological therapy such as e-stimulation and physical therapy.
2How does ARPwave Neuro Therapy help the body heal?
All injuries are caused by the body's inability to absorb force. For example, when athletes become fatigued, their muscles shorten, limiting their ability to absorb force. ARPWave Neuro Therapy uses a patented bio-electrical current to find the source of the pain or injury and eliminate old muscle compensation patterns. Once the source of the injury or pain is found, the direct, bio-electrical current is used to re-educate the soft tissues to elongate and absorb force.
3What is ARPwave Neuro Therapy’s success rate?
Practitioners have used ARPwave Neuro Therapy to treat over 350,000 patients over the last 18 years. Out of the 350,000 people who received treatment, 96% of all the patients who have received ARPwave Neuro Therapy treatment have experienced significant or complete reduction of their chronic pain symptoms.

6What happens during a typical ARPwave Neuro Therapy session?
During treatment, a licensed ARPwave Neuro Therapy practitioner will use pads that are placed on your skin, allowing DC currents to pass through and identify the origin or the disruption in your soft tissue. Once the source has been found, the practitioner will guide you through a series of exercises to correct body compensation and create new neuro patterns that reeducate your muscles to elongate and absorb force.
