7 Week ACL Post Surgery Recovery Program
At University Village Chiropractic, our post-surgery ACL Recovery Program can have you back on the field or court in 7 weeks or less. That’s a fact.
How is that possible? Simple. Injuries in the body are a NEUROLOGICAL function NOT a physiological function and if you treat an injury or surgery rehab from a neurological stand point, then your recovery time is vastly accelerated with far better results. However, in traditional post-ACL surgery every physical therapist and athletic trainer on the planet is going to tell you 6-9 months because they will be treating the physiological component of the where the problem ENDED up, and this rehab will do absolutely NOTHING for where the ACL tear originated from. Until the ORIGIN of where the ACL tear originated from is treated, than absolutely no amount of rest, ice, stem, physical therapy or strength training in the world is going give you long term results. And it certainly is not going to get you back in an expedited time frame. That’s where we come in.
After your ACL surgery, you will begin your ARP Wave 7 Week ACL Recovery Program. The first part will encompass 30 days of ARP Wave Post Surgery Therapy where you will sleep with the device 8 to 9 hours a night and conduct proprietary exercise protocols 1 to 2 hours daily, via Skype with one of trained staff. This is 10+ hours of therapy daily as opposed to 2 to 3 hours a week of traditional Physical Therapy. Which program do you think will heal you quicker? 10 hours a day with Neurological Therapy, doing proprietary exercises and increased blood flow with our patented technology; or 2-3 hours a week of traditional Physical Therapy? Pretty obvious!
During this time frame, your muscles will be contracting at 500 times per second neurologically, flushing blood to the repaired tissue and vastly increasing the healing process while simultaneously strengthening the surrounding muscles and ELIMINATING atrophy. There is no other form of ACL recovery therapy that can ELIMINATE atrophy post-surgery, except ours.
After the 30 day post-surgery in home therapy program, you will go into our 20 session Neuro-Therapy Program where we will identify the origin of the ACL tear (it is never, ever, ever where it ended up), treat it, strengthen it, and have you back on the court or field at 100%.
FAQ’s On The 7 Week ACL Recovery Program
How are you able to get me back in 7 weeks as opposed to 6 to 9 months doing traditional physical therapy?
As we are treating the neurological origin of the ACL tear, we are simultaneously sending blood to the repaired tissue while contracting the muscles neurologically at 500X per second. This constant blood flow and strengthening of the neurological origin allows for the region of the tear to heal at an accelerated pace WHILE conducting ACTIVE MOVEMENT. Traditional therapy, HOWEVER, would continue to focus on treating where the tear ended up, limiting movement and blood flow while ignoring the issue that caused it in the first place. Add in the fact that you are receiving 10+ hours daily of advanced ARP therapy during the first 30 days, than 20 daily sessions of Neuro-Therapy and it is clear why we get players back far, far quicker, stronger and more importantly asymptomatic. We accomplish more in 50 days than any other ACL rehab program can accomplish in 9 months.
What will my strength be after finishing your ACL Recovery Program?
The best way to answer that question is with this analogy. Imagine having a Ferrari with absolutely no shocks, how much damage would that do to that car? What good is having a Ferrari if you have no shocks, because you will just end up ruining it at some point, correct? Well, with traditional ACL rehab, that’s the scenario that will happen. Your muscles are shock absorbers and if they are not turning on fast enough to absorb that shock or hit on the field guess what? That force is sent to areas of the body not meant to absorb force, such as your knee, causing the ACL tear. THIS IS A NEUROLOGICAL ISSUE, and until that muscle is treated neurologically to turn on fast enough to absorb force, than all the ACL surgeries and rehab in the world will not fix it. You will have a brand new Ferrari (new ACL) operating with no shock absorbers. How long until you think you reinjure that ACL? Strength, size and speed mean absolutely NOTHING if the muscle(s) protecting the ACL cannot turn on fast enough to handle the force going in. That’s a NEUROLOGICAL function, NOT a physical one, and thus MUST be rehabbed from a neurological stand point.
With our patented and proprietary ARP Wave System, we are going to find the neurological origin of the ACL tear, break up the scar tissue that is hindering it from turning on fast enough to absorb force, strengthen it through our proprietary protocols, and leave you with an ACL protected by muscles that will now turn on fast enough neurologically to absorb even the most violent of hits or force. No other form of therapy can neurologically accomplish this except our 7 Week ACL Recovery Program. None.
How can I have active moment so soon after ACL surgery?
Remember, we are taking the force OUT of the ACL region and transferring it into the muscles meant to absorb the force. We are able to do this by simply locating the ORIGIN of the ACL tear with our ARP Wave device, than neurologically put the muscle into ECCENTRIC CONTRACTION (lengthen) with our patented waveform, and when this occurs the force into the ACL is eliminated and transferred back into the shock absorbers or muscles if you will. At this point, we are able to treat you WITH ACTIVE MOVEMENT while simultaneously strengthening the muscle and sending blood to the repaired tissue. The key here is that we are allowing the origin of the symptom (the supporting muscle) to go into eccentric contraction and LENGTHEN, taking the force away from the ACL while we treat with active movement.
How does a typical ACL tear occur and how will your rehab prevent it from happening again?
EXAMPLE: Adrian Peterson. Probably the best built athlete in the NFL, but that didn’t prevent him from going down with a season ending ACL tear. The fact that the appropriate muscles did NOT turn on fast enough to absorb that hit caused the injury. It was NEUROLOGICAL, NOT PHYSIOLOGICAL. When Adrian endured that hit to his knee his quad, VMO, and calf all went into concentric contraction, shortening into “protection mode”, leaving the knee completely exposed without ANY ability to absorb shock and thus the ACL injury was the outcome. His strength, size and speed had ZERO ability to play any factor in preventing this injury because the signal from the brain to the muscles to turn on fast enough were impeded by scar tissue and inflammation and UNTIL that neurological origin was treated, all the rest, ice, compression, elevation, surgery and stim in the world would NOT fix this issue. After an ACL surgery, however, using the ARP Wave System we are able to go in, find that neurological origin to get the muscle(s) firing properly again and once we do, a hit to Adrian Peterson’s knee would have a DIFFERENT outcome. The muscles would IMMEDIATELY go into eccentric contraction (lengthen) and the force would be absorbed, taking it away from the knee and PREVENTING the ACL tear all together. Again… it is NOT physiological… but NEUROLOGICAL. Unfortunately, physical therapy and training rooms focus on the where the injury ended up leaving the origin untreated. Our treatment solves this issue!
