"I am a neurosurgeon and I have been using BioWave 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."

"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!"
"BioWave 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."
