"We have had great success using the BioWave for 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. 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."

"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."

"In my experience, Biowave 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 Biowave, 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."
