  • “I have been using BioWave for five years now and have grown to count on it in helping me keep my athletes on the playing field.In a sport that requires them to play a game every day I need a product that I know will give me the results, I need to help combat pain, inflammation and muscle fatigue.I have had tremendous results with pitchers reducing shoulder and elbow soreness using it for treatments the day following their starts.I use it on elbows for flexor bundle inflammation and medial epicondylitis, and on shoulders to help reduce inflammation and fatigue.I also use it in our rehab settings following surgeries to help control pain and facilitate motion during exercise programs. The “Blue Box” is an important adjunct to our overall health care plan to keep our athletes on the baseball diamond.”

  • “We have had great success using the BioWave at baseball. We use it on pitchers for rotator cuff and elbow soreness. It is a great change of pace for recovery a day or two after pitching. We have also used it in conjunction with doing arm care exercises. To be honest, the BioWave is the only electrical stimulation unit we use in the athletic training room anymore. Our athletes consistently ask to use the BioWave and we have had tremendous results with it.”

  • “BioWavePRO has been a wonderful tool to manage difficult pain conditions in my patients. For example, I have treated frozen shoulder patients who have been resistant to other therapies and whose range of motion was limited. However, when we applied BioWavePRO for eight minutes at the beginning of the PT regimen, and then while the treatment continued, we began PROM and exercise therapy with the patient. The patient was able to move more resistance through a greater range of motion with significantly less pain. I have found it to be a wonderful tool to facilitate motion and allow my patients to complete my therapy protocols much more comfortably.”

“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!”

“BioWavePRO is a great therapeutic tool for reducing pain and simultaneously improving range of motion and strength in our athletes. With multiple daily treatments, the athlete can perform rehabilitation exercises with less pain, allowing him to return to play more quickly.”

“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.”

“As a former college athlete, and avid runner I have experienced several knee injuries and general joint issues. A couple of years ago, I had a bi-lateral arthroscopic surgery/lateral release to reduce excessive joint pain, scar tissue weakness and pain. The surgery was successful and went very smoothly, however as with most knee injuries, chronic arthritis and pain persist. I was looking for a pain management solution which did not require the use of prescription, or pill based medicine. Historically, these solutions were only available to professional athletes.

My knee surgeon recommended that I meet with Brad Siff to discuss the BioWave device for neuromodulation pain therapy. The device claims to reduce pain after 30 minutes of treatment, and it certainly does just that and a lot more! The BioWave is a life saver in pain reduction. I often experience sharp pangs, limping and generally incredible amounts of pain after engaging in strenuous weight bearing activity. Being an active person who does not wish to give up my hobbies over knee pain, I tried so many things to find a solution, and it wasn’t until I was introduced to the BioWave that I noticed a difference. Using the machine immediately reduces pain, and that level of relief lasts for a day or two, with a general lesser level of joint pain experienced even a day or two beyond initial use. After using the BioWave home device, I have experienced an immediate decrease in muscle stiffness and a very immediate and obvious reduction in sharp or shooting pains from the joints.

The device is easy to use, is not painful during treatment and while you are hooked up to it, there is a sensation of stimulated blood flow to the area being treated. If you are an athlete or even a weekend warrior that doesn’t want to give up the sports and activities that you love I would highly recommend the device for pain management. The device is high quality and reliable. BioWave is also extremely customer service oriented and knowledgeable about medical matters related to injuries and pre-existing conditions. They will get you anything needed from stim pads, wires lost chargers immediately. I would highly recommend using the device!”

  • “My husband used it for the first time yesterday at the VA in Salem, VA. He suffers from spinal stenosis. His pain is unbearable for him at times. His pain in his lumbar spine was 8 before the BioWave therapy 5 when he finished. It was 7 in the cervical spine and 3 when he finished. He loves it. He does battlefield acupuncture every 2 weeks that takes his pain down one notch — the BioWave gave him more relief. His chronic pain team who are a wonderful group of people to him, will assist him in getting one for home.”

  • This is to thank Ron and Tony from Biowave for helping me get this to Ann Arbor, Michigan VA Hospital. During the few days since I received it and used it, it has reduced my average 8 pain level daily and weekly to about a 4 out of 10 scale. I’m glad that I kept bothering my VA pain doctor to check into this technology. It will help many more veterans that I’m in contact with to get pain relief without narcotics.

“I wanted to let you know about my experience with Biowave. I have been struggling with severe back and neck pain for over 30 years. I was beginning to think nothing would ever help. I had tried everything except major surgery. I was ecstatic when I tried the Biowave device that the V.A. hospital had and it relieved my muscle and nerve pain for hours. This device allowed me to get sleep, and even to start going out in public. The company is super responsive to questions and very professional. I love this device! One great company!”

My name is Mark Loughridge and I called earlier today to order a home BioWave machine.  I tried the BioWave system at my physical therapy appointment with Marjorie Alex today at Rehabilitation Associates in Westport Ct. I was getting my physical therapy session following my 6th hand surgery at HSS in Manhattan. I am quite astonished.  I am quite free of pain in my damaged hand!  This seems like a real game changer!  I would like to order a machine as soon as possible.  I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Many thanks!

I was 1st @ Bath NY VA to use Biowave. I’m educating my caregivers, friends as I go. Don’t stop trying! It flipping WORKS. Cumulative effect over time, 30 minutes is all it takes. Guys, I swear by my BiowaveHOME unit, it’s given me my life back. No fog from drugs, I use it on my schedule, when I need it. Go for it, you will not regret it.

I originally saw your product on twitter. I believe I e-mailed Ron off that feed, he then called me and I asked my primary  physician for Pain/PT consult. Used the unit for 6 times at Bath Va…Ron said he had never heard of someone falling asleep while unit was in use until I told him I was taking a power nap while using mine. I am covered for all but dental 100% medically by VA. Not service connected disability, Im 3 1/2 yrs post-op from VATS left lung surgery, 6 months later, 3 ribs over surgical area fractured. I’ve been in constant pain since. Then, Degenerative Disc Disease reared its ugly head L1-L-5 about a year and a half ago.

I’m 60 years old, had just gotten my associates degree when above occured, I went from looking forward to making more money in the medical field to homebound with chronic pain.I had my 5th cardiac stent placed 19 October 2017. Worked hard after that to try and exercise, couldnt. Also newly diagnosed last June diabetic, so being immobile could kill me over time. I was walking post-catheter, but I hate it. Started bike riding because it was easier than walking. But pain was still my obstacle. Couldnt take a full, deep breath without pain. But now after your unit, Im’ taking deep breaths,getting much better oxygenation. As I also have emphysema from smoking, that’s been a major game changer. I’m also now sleeping 3-5 hours at a stretch because I can sleep without pain. Quality of my life is drastically improving. Not only can I again do my housework, vaccuuming, making the bed, cleaning the tub, I’m much more active with friends, church, volunteering with vets, etc. I’ve also been bike riding a bike trail , 6 miles round trip to an area park, and the other direction is 12 miles to a river ramp and picnic area. I’m looking forward to visiting my children and grandchildren in Tennessee and Florida in a couple of months. I know I’ll be able to travel now. I’m using the home unit now every 2-3 days, and when I’ve done too much, because I can. Received SSI in January,because I was finally considered disabled. I fought to Not have to do it, but after 3 years I had given up. Now, I am myself again. Thank you and your company for making all of this possible. So sorry this is so long, but wanted to tell you. I had one of your reps come to a Vietnam Veterans Association meeting, wanting to share with those cranky old farts how well Biowave was working for me. I’m also sharing with a different vet support group here in Elmira as well about the difference with pain control on Biowave versus medicating. Hoping they’ll listen and give it try. Anyway, more than enough info you were looking for I’m sure. Take care.

I would first like to thank you for your outstanding website and podcast.  I have been listening to the podcasts and reading your website content since late last summer/ early fall when my son joined the USAF.  I found your site while doing my own research into AFSOC, as my son has aspirations of joining the CCT community.

The reason for this email is to thank you for advertising for Biowave.  I had never heard of that device until I heard you speaking about it on the podcast.

I developed a degenerative bone disease when I was in the first grade which deformed my right femoral head (it collapsed on itself and formed a mushroom shape).  As result of this condition I have lived with chronic hip pain ever since.  I was also told to expect to have a hip replacement by my thirties.

I dealt with the pain by taking Ibuprofen for most of my life until seven years ago when I donated a kidney to my father.  Ibuprofen is filtered through the body via the kidneys and since I now only had one I was advised to stop taking it.  Now my hip pain was a much bigger problem for me so I was force to get a hip replacement at 44 years old.  The replacement has not given me the freedom I had hoped for and over the past five years I have lost flexibility and the pain has not subsided as I had hoped.

This past month I had a follow-up to make sure nothing with the prosthesis had come loose. My surgeon was confident it had not.  After much discussion he gave me a few options for various tests which if conclusive would mean a revision surgery and additional bone loss when I am only 49 years old.  I told him that was unacceptable as I wanted an active life back.  After discussing the pros and cons of my situation in detail with him and after I asked for him to write a prescription for a Biowave machine, he did.

I received my new machine yesterday.  I immediately left work and did a treatment.  It was a miracle!  The pain was gone!  After the first treatment,  I was pain free in my hip.  I was able to bend over and pick small objects off the floor without having to drop to one knee which was how I had to do it since the surgery.  I could put my foot easily up on an end table that was the height of my mid-thigh area.  Again this was something I could not do previous to the treatment!  I went for a long walk and rode several miles on a stationary bike and felt wonderful!

This morning I woke up to a cloudy damp drizzling weather front that had moved in overnight.  This is the type of day I typically abhor, as it usually causes significant pain, tightness and even more loss of range of movement.  I had none of that today.  I did another treatment , per the clinical protocol and I can move better than I have in years!  I am more than happy with the results I have seen in such a short time.

Since I work in the medical field I understand the dangers of opioid base pain management.  I understand the numerous and sometimes very dangerous side effects, along with the addictive properties of such drugs.  This is why I avoided them and was forced to deal with daily chronic pain which prevented me from enjoying life with my family to its fullest.  Now I feel like I may be getting that back again.

I applaud you for advertising this product to you audience, as I know many of them have sacrificed greatly for our country, which I also applaud.  If by making more people aware of Biowave through your efforts helps one current or prior service member as much as it has already helped me, then you have accomplished a great service to our men and women of the United States Armed Forces.

Thank you Sirs for turning me onto a life restoring product.

I am a 60 yr.old veteran, have been with VA since 2012. In 2014, I was meddo-vacced to Buffalo VA, where I had an emergency, 6 hour lung surgery due to aspiration pneumonia.

Did well in recovery over 2 wks, ready to go home, had a heart attack, had 4 stents placed in heart. Finally got to go home after almost 3 weeks. Six months later, fractured 3 ribs over the same surgical site. I spent the next 2 1/2 years basically homebound, in chronic pain. I gained 60 pds, became a type II diabetic, and my emphysema from smoking became much worse. I applied for disability through Social Security. While waiting for that, I had another stent placed in my heart. I was a wreck. But post-op from the latest, I decided I had to start exercising, follow my diet, get my diabetes under control. I saw BioWave on twitter, contacted them, ended up with Ron Streelman as a contact. I got my new primary MD to order PT. I asked for the biowave as it had just arrived at Bath VA. Fell asleep during 1st treatment, it relaxed me and felt great…Ron had a fit when I told him that! Over the next 3 weeks, I progressively showed improvement, not only with pain, going from an 8/10 to a 2/10, my range of motion left arm/shoulder improved tenfold. I received a home unit, which I now use every 2-3 days as needed. I can take a deeper breath as it doesn’t hurt, so am receiving much better oxygenation, which helps overall. I can vacuum, clean the tub, do the dishes, where before, I did all of the above slowly, painfully, over the space of days. Now I can do all in the same day. When I overdo, because I can, just put the portable pack on, and continue with my chores. I am bike riding as weather allows, going on our local bike trail along the Chemung river, and to our area Lake Park. I can go out, and stay out for the day now. I can volunteer at church in the kitchen, cooking and running the dish machine. I can go out with friends in the evening now. I have my life back. I’m still limited, of course, and nothing has been cured. But because I am in less pain, I have stretched out and used muscles I was unable to because of the pain. Thanks to Biowave, my disability has gone from crippling to manageable.

  • The BioWave unit has been the most effective tool in my pain management arsenal BY FAR!!! I have been using the device for almost 5 years. It provides better pain relief than any of my medications do for the burning, “electric shock” sensation that accompanies nerve pain. It is my “go to” tool for flareups and sleepless nights.

Pain and Spine Clinics

BioWavePENS is used by physicians in pain and spine clinics across the United States.

“I want to get back with you about the BioWavePRO machine you have provided me. As you know, I have had some very serious Sciatic type pain in my right buttock and lower right calf areas from a back surgery I had about 6 months ago on L4 and L5.

The pain has been severe and in order to control it I have been on some serious medications like Oxycodone, Nortriptyline and 5% Lidocaine patches.

None of these provided much relief and it was looking like the only alternative to resolving the problem was an additional surgery, soon. I have been in daily pain that has limited the activities I could perform on a daily bases. Plus, being on these medications have added additional stress and issues dealing with my everyday routine.

Since trying the BioWave machine, I have had immediate relief from the pain and have experienced about a 90 to 95% reduction in the pain. I have stopped taking the above mentioned medications and am feeling much better. Now, I am only on the 3rd day with the machine but the pain improvement is nothing short of miraculous.

I do realize that a surgery is still in my future but the ability to have significantly reduced pain and be able to take some time to consult with my back surgeon and plan the approach to the surgery without having to be in agony while waiting for the surgery date is a great relief to me.

I have become a big fan very quickly of this product and already have several friends who have similar issues wanting to know more about it and see if they can experience the benefits I have already received. If you would like more information or have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks so much for your help and professional advice.”

“I am a patient with a thoracic spine condition that required spinal fusion surgery. Both pre-and post surgery, I have experienced intercostal neuralgia. It is a condition that creates severe nerve pain along the ribs, and it is very difficult to treat.

The BioWave unit has been the most effective tool in my pain management arsenal BY FAR!!! I have been using the device for almost 5 years. It provides better pain relief than any of my medications do for the burning, “electric shock” sensation that accompanies nerve pain. It is my “go to” tool for flareups and sleepless nights. The stimulation from the BioWave unit creates a deep soothing sensation that relieves my constant, unrelenting pain.

In addition to addressing the comfort that the device provides, I must commend Brad Siff. He has been professional, loyal, and helpful throughout my journey with chronic pain. Brad has taken a great deal of time to educate me and my physical therapists regarding my BioWave device.

The company has handled supply orders courteously, quickly, and accurately and company representatives are both very patient and attentive to my questions and concerns. I highly recommend this device for any patient who is seeking an effective management program for chronic pain.”

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.”

I am beyond satisfied with my BioWave unit and it really has become an integral part of my practice … my “go-to unit” if you will … particularly since I’m a Manual Orthopedic Physical Therapist and modalities are an adjunctive way for me to initiate and complete treatment.

Thank you and congratulations!!!   I see a VERY BRIGHT FUTURE for BioWave!
