Many patients see Dr. Nikesh Seth after other pain management treatments have failed. This isn’t surprising, considering that the majority of treatments simply mask the pain instead of solving the root cause. The human body is an incredible machine capable of self-healing in many cases with a little help. ARP Wave Therapy is one of the latest procedures available at Integrated Pain Consultants and works by giving your body what it needs to heal itself from the inside out.
Accelerated Recovery Performance, or ARP, works via neuro therapy. It focuses on why patients have pain, not just where. ARP can determine the pain or injury origin and considers it a type of electrical breakdown. A lot of pain is electrical, not physical, and that can stump doctors who think the pain site is also the injury site. That isn’t always true, but it can make finding the pain source challenging. That’s where ARP steps in. The proprietary system uses direct current electric muscle stimulation to locate the original injury site. It’s a simple procedure that only requires sticky pads on the skin.
When the injury site is found, ARP either stimulates or destroys it (depending on what is necessary for permanent pain relief). Maybe scar tissue needs to be broken down or muscles need to get stimulated to increase blood circulation and kickstart natural healing. Simultaneously, the brain receives the message that the pain area is identified, which in turn can stop the brain from resisting healing. It’s a stubborn pattern the brain can fall into that ultimately keeps the body from self-healing.
ARP Wave Therapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions including back pain, hip pain, ACL tears, headaches, and much more. It’s holistic, natural, and non-invasive. However, patients should be prepared to move during the session. Wearing workout clothes is a good idea. Movement is a must in order for ARP Wave Therapy to work and find the injury site.
