Client Testimonial

I feel very blessed to have found Christine at A Step Ahead Physiotherapy - not only does she have the extensive knowledge and ability to get you on the road to full recovery; she really cares about her patients. This is not a job for Christine, this is a calling. I thoroughly recommend you make an appointment and start your recovery now.

ARP Wave

ARP Wave stands for Accelerated Recovery Performance. It works on the body’s “wiring system”, the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It helps the brain communicate with the rest of the body to treat the neurological origin of pain and restricted movement.

The ARP Wave machine is an electronic device that uses electrodes to determine the source of your symptoms. Throughout the course of your treatment, these electrodes are used on the points identified to eliminate pain and train your body absorb force properly. If your muscles are not absorbing force, it is going somewhere else in your body which results in damage.

ARP Wave therapy locates areas of damaged, inflamed tissue with scar tissue around it. ARP Wave therapy enables the nervous system to communicate with these areas and breaks up the scar tissue enabling the damaged area to heal.

Who it’s good for:

  • Patients in chronic pain or on pain medication
  • Patients with “mysterious” or undiagnosed pain/symptoms
  • Patients with neurologic disorders, spinal cord injuries, or strokes
  • Post-surgical patients
  • Patients with swelling

Testimonials

Last year I was on the verge of giving up running and now I'm back to doing around 60 miles per week and have three ultra marathons planned for this year. I have already completed a 50K. The ARP allowed me to still run whilst having treatment which makes a big difference. In addition to the treatment, ARP highlighted where the main issue was. Christine knew all along it wasn't in the foot/ankle but no doctors could identify exactly where it was.

Radial Pressure Wave Therapy

 

Radial Pressure waves are acoustic waves that generate oscillations in the tissue. The wave hits the body at skin surface and from there travels radially into the body to a depth of around 2 inches. In the body, the pressure waves stimulate metabolic activity and the body's intrinsic healing mechanism. Learn more about RPW here.
