  • "In my experience, BiowavePRO Neuromodulation Pain Therapy is a great adjunct therapy for providing long-lasting pain relief in my patients. I have several spinal stenosis patients who have had difficulty returning to daily activity through traditional physical therapy. When I treated my patients with BiowavePRO, the treatments consistently provide about 48 hours of continued pain relief as well as a significant reduction in stiffness. I have found it to be one of the most helpful tools to get my patients to comfortably return to daily activities."

  • "I’m Nathan Stupar and am currently a linebacker for the New Orleans Saints. I recently tore my ACL on punt coverage during our game against the Detroit Lions our fourth game into the regular season. I want to tell you about my journey ahead of me. Tearing your ACL means recovery takes about six to nine months to return to the football field. This is a difficult thing to process because I’m used to injuries taking a couple weeks to come back from. Recently in preseason this year I tweaked my hamstring against the Texans. Hamstrings are no laughing matter because they are very tricky. If it isn’t right and you come back too soon, you can easily tweak it again and be out another couple of weeks. But during my recovery I used BioWavePRO nonstop. It blocked the pain, allowed me to complete my rehab more easily and helped me get back onto the field quicker. I began to play my best football on special teams until I ended up tearing my ACL. The BioWavePRO gave me a quicker healing timeline and took away the pains that can come with a tweaked hammy. I would definitely suggest using BioWavePRO for future injuries like I am now with my ACL. I am currently rehabbing from my surgery and things are going great. Yes it will take time to get back to grinding on the field with my brothers, but I know I’ll be back quicker with the help of my BioWavePRO by my side! I highly recommend it to those who are looking for an edge on recovery and pain relief. It really does wonders. Thank you BioWave for keeping me right and to bringing me back as soon as possible so I can be back to playing on Sundays!"

  • "I am a neurosurgeon and I have been using BioWavePENS over the past 2 years. The system is easy to use and has given my practice an additional modality to help with difficult to treat back and neck symptoms that are not amenable to traditional spine surgery. I also use BioWave for patients with excessive postoperative pain. The system gives me an idea how patients respond to neuromodulation and facilitates the patients appreciation of neurostimulation prior to any invasive trials."
