Used by thousands of professional athletes, ARPwave technology is a direct-current electric muscle stimulation (EMS) device designed to help speed up recovery from sports injuries, orthopedic conditions, and nerve-related pain.
At Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, our physical therapy team uses the ARPwave to help patients get pain relief, heal faster, and also increase flexibility.
Using electrodes placed directly on the affected area, our physical therapists direct each patient to move or perform a motion and use the electric stimulation to resolve movement restrictions.
ARPwave works directly on the nervous system and can be used to provide relief for conditions such as:
- Frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis)
- Joint pain (back, elbow, foot, hip, knee, neck, shoulder, wrist)
- Muscle tears
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Postsurgical joint pain
- Rotator cuff damage
- Shoulder impingement
