  • “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 York Giants. I tore my ACL on punt coverage during our game against the Detroit Lions our fourth game into last season. I want to tell you about my journey. 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….

“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….

“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….

“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 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 a 60 yr.old veteran, have been with VA since 2012. In 2014, I was meddo-vacced to 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….

Not even Tylenol. Nothing. No opioids, nothing. None of the things that are in my cabinet.

“This is to thank Ron and Tony from Biowave for helping me get this at my 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.”

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….

“They didn’t have Biowave at my VA but I got my pain management person in contact with Biowave. Next thing I know they mailed one straight to my door. I have been doing spinal nerve blocks for 10 years and have never used a tense unit.

 

What I can tell you is I am on day 6 of using my Biowave Home unit and I am pain free. Give it a try it’s free for us. What do you have to lose but pain? I hope all of you get the pain relief you desire. God Bless.”

“Hi,

 

Thanks for the email and for developing the Biowave HOME pain relief miracle.

 

I was the first veteran at my VA to receive a Biowave HOME device. I had used TENS devices for years for lower back pain to help relax the muscles that would tighten up and cause unbearable pain. My life of pain had existed since 1973 when I injured my back in an auto accident….

“I had surgery on both shoulders and my back several years ago. I injured my back while in the Army years ago. And have torn both rotator cuffs. Surgery is no longer an option.

“I got mine through the VA. This has taken the place of needing injections and virtually no pain. It can be used almost anywhere. It has a cumulative effect to the point where you don’t need to use it every day. I was willing to buy it myself if the VA didn’t pay for it. It’s really that good.”

“BioWave was recommended to me from another veteran. After 12 yrs with back pain and taking pills and therapies, BioWave was the only non-medication that actually relieved the pain in 30 minutes or less. Would not change it for anything in the world. It actually works.”

“I have been using the BioWave Unit for several months now. I am glad I saw the ad on the internet. The unit works great and relieves my pain without pain meds. My pain is severe as it sometimes takes all day to relieve the pain. I use mine every week and I am glad I have it. I had a TENS unit that doesn’t work as well.”

“After YEARS of suffering from chronic pain in my lower lumbar area, and being treated with Rx creams, lotions, and sacroiliac joint injections… the BioWave Home unit I received from the VA has now reduced my pain to a very manageable intermittent disturbance. I received over 26 hours of pain-free relief after my 3rd treatment at the VA PT clinic. I am currently seeing 3 to 4 days of steady pain-free relief (from its cumulative effectiveness) in my lumbar area. There was a ‘process’ I had to follow before being issued one from the VA, but it was well worth the effort to participate in it. I’m looking forward to golf season… I know I’m going to be playing PAIN-FREE! Thank you BioWave for helping me feel pain-free and enjoying life to its fullest.
P.S. Feel free to share this testimonial with other veterans.”

“I don’t mind at all with using my testimony. I was on methadone for 11 years through the VA and quit cold Turkey. I would never recommend that for anyone. Having been off methadone for 2 years this week, I have exhausted every avenue thru the VA Pain management seeking relief for chronic lower back and leg pain. Then I was introduced to BIOWAVE in March of 2018. I am so thankful now that I never gave up on the BIOWAVE treatments. I received my home BIOWAVE unit today (12-14-2018). This is the only true relief I have had in a long 2 year battle. I am totally pain medicine free. My hearts desire is that every one of my fellow veterans could receive this same relief. If you believe BIOWAVE could help you, it is worth every effort. Don’t give in, it’s your health.”

“I just received my BioWave. One of the best pain relievers I have ever experienced. I have had chronic back pain since 1980. I use the BioWave once a day and the pain drops dramatically for the rest of the day. Don’t get me wrong I still have pain but nothing like what I have experienced for the last 38 years. Along with hip, neck and shoulder pain, this reduces the pain to a level I haven’t experienced with pharmaceuticals. Thanks Ron.”

Ray

“I’m a 67 y/o disabled veteran. I’ve had chronic, severe pain from spinal stenosis and other deterioration of the spine for more than 20 years. Doctors tried everything, including a myriad of opioids. Nothing helped. Then my VA physical therapist used the BioWave on me during a PT session. After 30 minutes using the BioWave, the pain was COMPLETELY GONE for the first time in decades!! I was blown away! Couldn’t stop saying “OMG! OMG! This is magic!” and told my therapist I HAD to have one to use at home, which he immediately ordered.

A 30-minute session using the BioWave (VERY easy to use without assistance) knocks out my pain for at least 2 days. Because there are several areas of my body that have chronic pain from my spinal issues, I have to use it multiple times to cover the various areas, but I’m more than thrilled to do that.

THANK YOU BIOWAVE!!! You have improved my life beyond measure!”

“Have been getting weekly treatments for the last month. In order to receive my own personal BioWave Home Unit.

I’m so excited, waiting anxiously for it to arrive!

Just learned about BioWave, and how it can possibly help me regain my quality of life, earlier this year. So grateful for all the information and help I’ve received through my local VA. I now have a renewed perspective on my new life, as I slowly embark upon a pain-free, more mobile me in the coming new year!

Thank you so very much!”

“Got mine through the VA. After 30 minute treatments, I can (1) gain full range of motion in my shoulder; (2) bend over and touch my toes, split wood, carry 50# bags of feed, and drive for long distances… all without pain in my lower back; and (3) it has eliminated the need for pain meds due to post-surgery complications. BioWave has absolutely improved the quality of my life!”

“So let me preface a little. Due to an accident I ended up having a stroke. I have bee physically fit all my life and did my time in the military and in war. At the age of 55 saw a great future then came an accident at work and a stroke followed. I could barely move my right arm and the horrific pain resulted. The policy now is no painkillers. This meant months of no sleep and continued degeneration with little or no sympathy or planned treatment. The doctor finally decided to cut me and remove my connecting shoulder bones and announced I would be crippled. Well, being who I am I refused. My doctor’s nurse practitioner and the alternative medical doctor suggested BioWave and let me try it at the VA. IMMEDIATELY I felt relief I could raise my arms farther than in 6 months The amount of loss to my life was at a point I could not continue. Then it came in the mail and within a week I began a road to recovery. It’s not perfect, I am damaged but its only been two months and I have a chance to have an acceptable life. So at least try this, don’t give up or get cut up. By the way, I work I the concrete industry I don’t have an easy job, but I am back. Thank you.”

author

John

“I received my BioWave about 3 weeks ago it took me quite a while to respond positively because they cut open 16″ of my spine and I have a lot of areas where I’m experiencing some extreme pain I read the opportunity to use this device on those areas and I find it nothing short of amazing. I highly recommend it. If you don’t start the process it won’t happen and I would highly recommend it to everyone.”

Just used it on my shoulder tonight, the pain level went from a 9 10 to about 3 and when I used it on the left two weeks ago the highest pain level to come back has only been about a 6 periodically. It works great.

I normally don’t comment on things like this but I have used a Bio-wave and it WORKED! Long story short, I am fused from L-1to S-1 with hardware in place. I have had radicular pain in both legs for 10 yrs. I have had 1, 30 min. session, left leg only ( on 1/11) and have experienced NO PAIN for 2 days and am still at 50% better than prior session, at 3 days. My next session is this Wednesday and I can’t wait.

I love my BioWave. It is great and has helped me be able to walk again because the pain had me so bad that all I could do was lay in bed or on my couch. I couldn’t walk from my living room to the bathroom without being doubled over in pain. I can now feel my feet some before I couldn’t feel the bottom of my feet. Thank you so very much to the BioWave team y’all are amazing.
To the people that are not sure let me just say it’s so worth the hoops you might have to jump at the VA. I will tell you I was the very first veteran to receive one from my VA, they ordered it and it was delivered to my house. It took a few months because they didn’t have them in the system yet, but once in the system it moved fast I had it within a few days after being ordered. So to all the veterans that it could help fill in the form and ask them how to go about it.

I have had back problems since I was 35 years old. At my present age of 75, I suffer with severe scoliosis, spinal stenosis, fractures, herniated discs, pelvic fractures, arthritis, damaged nerves, neuropathy, torn hip labrum, etc. I have tried everything for relief – Meds, Injections, etc. My VA Doctor told me about the BioWave and set me up for a test at the local Clinic. I was totally amazed at the immediate relief that I experienced. When it was determined that it indeed did work for me, I was provided with one for home. After all these years, I finally have something to relieve my pain and give me a better quality of life.

I received and started using Biowave this week, and all I can say is WOW! I have suffered from chronic post surgery back pain for years, and I refuse to take pain killers. This thing is AMAZING! I will surely pass the word around, in fact, I have an appointment with physical therapy at the VA this week, and I will bring my unit along. Thanks!

If I do have any pain, all it takes is one thirty minute treatment and it’s gone!! Amazing product! Thanks for the opportunity to control my life and pain without meds!

Don

I asked my Pain Doctor, at the VA, if he knew anything about BioWave. Instead of reply he requested a Biowave Representative to come to the house. After the first demo I was pain free for over 2 hours, it was amazing. After I got my unit I would do 2 a day treatments, then 1 a day and now ever other day. The lasting effect is great. I can finally get to the chores I’ve been putting off. Thank you.

Because I could not get opioids for my neuropathy pain, I reluctantly resorted to alcohol relieves pain but increases, sugar, bad cholesterol and a1c levels!). Now my biowave unit has allowed me to give up alcohol use and it has eliminated my neuropathy pain and i now sleep better as well!

Also, my wife arlette, an r.n. used the biowave unit for pains in her knee. After several uses, her pain has been totally eliminated!

We absolutely recommend the biowave unit! It has saved us expensive doctors and therapy visits!  A great investment!

Bio Wave is very helpful to me. I use it on various painful body parts: neck, back & knees. It’s much more helpful than “TENS” Bio Wave relief is long lasting.. It’s convenient to use. My introduction to Bio wave came from my physical therapist who uses it on me as part of therapy. I’ve recommended it to friends & neighbors.

Feeling fine at 99.

I have been using Biowave on my father in law for approximately a month now. He is a 99 year old WWII veteran and ex POW.  As of now, I put it on him twice a day and the benefits are very obvious. He states that his pain is greatly reduced after every treatment and has greater range of motion than before the treatment began.

He would recommend Biowave whole heartedly to anyone that is experiencing persistent pain. He is very grateful to Biowave and the VA for the pain relief that he is experiencing from using the Biowave.

With his greatest appreciation,

Thank for your assistance and God Bless America.

Lest we forget.

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….

“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.”

“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….

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

I was Skeptical at first, the VA is not wanting to give out the Biowave, I’m sure that other Veterans are running into the same thing, the ( VA ) is saying it’s basically the same thing, not True!!! The Biowave goes a lot deeper than the ten units, myself personally have noticed a Good 50 % drop in pain and gives me.

A lot more time to Spend doing things pain free !!! Thanks Biowave and Ron Steelman for going to bat for all Veterans with a pain deterrent that works and no opioids, or at least cutting use of opioids by 50 % .in my case 100 % opioids free. I hereby authorize Biowave to use my testimony.

I have had neck issues (major pain) for years—fusion surgery in 2016–no pain relief. Tried everything except for opioids which I have always refused. Nothing worked. I stumbled on to Biowavego, assumed it would not work either but had nothing too lose— so I bought one. It is indisputably the best product I have ever used for pain relief—no doubt about it. The only negative is that the pads do not stick well. Anyone suffering from disc pain should own a Biowavego. It is amazing.
