THE HISTORY OF NEURO RECOVERY 2018-02-15T18:41:47+00:00



Neuro Recovery was created by Denis Thompson CEO of ARPwave after years of working with elite amateur and professional athletes who sustained injury or had surgery.With the help of many of the top therapists from the majority of all professional teams Denis researched the history of how long it took to recover and return to play. Denis found that there is clear empirical history for all injury and post-surgical cases as to length of time the athlete could return to play.With this history as the foundation for return to play Denis set out to research WHY it took so long for recovery and shorten the time.

In his research it was clear to him the reason athletes return to play faster than general patient population from injury and surgery was the additional therapy they receive. The typical patient recovering from injury or surgery will see a therapist at the most 3 times a week where the athlete may have therapy 3 times a day. This was a small piece of the puzzle but it still did NOT answer the question WHY it takes so long to recover.

Denis felt there had to be a common denominator and it was clear it was NOT just the increased therapy sessions. When Denis began researching the neurological dominant state of all injured athletes and post-surgical cases he identified what he believed to be the common denominator. Denis then researched to see if the general patient population were in the same neurological state and they were.

With this information Denis then created a protocol to immediately address this neurological missing link and reverse it. Neuro Recovery is this missing link which allows ALL patients to move out of a sympathetic dominant neurological state to a parasympathetic dominant state.

The reason Neuro Recovery speeds up the recovery process is when a patient is in a sympathetic dominant state (fight or flight) most healing functions are for all intents and purposes shut down. The sympathetic system’s activity breaks down the body when stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol run. When this system dominates, energy is diverted from healing, building tissues, and eliminating waste.

Denis felt this was the answer to WHY it takes so long to recover from injury or surgery.

Armed with this information Denis created Neuro Recovery to move all patients from the sympathetic dominant state to parasympathetic state and to increase therapy time. All patients including elite amateur and professional athletes can now benefit by sleeping with Neuro Recovery which increases therapy from a max of 3 hours a day to now 11 hours a day.

The volume of therapeutic activity and the neurological reset accomplished by Neuro Recovery results in a dramatic reduction in time to recover from injury or surgery.
