What is MyARP ?
MyARP is a movement and training system exploiting neural facilitation to significantly accelerate the body’s natural recovery and performance ability.
How does it work?
Injuries are caused by the body’s inability to absorb force. When we fatigue, our muscles shorten. This muscle tightening reduces and limits our ability to absorb force, resulting in lower performance and higher risk of injury. MyARP keeps muscles relaxed or “loosened” by eccentric lengthening, resulting in the ability to absorb much more force without injury. Using MyARP before sport practices/games, or other physical activity, will increase the effectiveness of absorbing, as well as creating, more force. The results include injury prevention, reduced fatigue and better performance. Using MyARP after sport practice and games, or any other physical activity, will generate instant recovery without soreness and pain.
Who can use MyARP?
The MyARP Concept is beneficial to everyone (*) regardless of age, sex and occupation. We also specialize in consulting for self-administered, accelerated recovery from all type of muscle injuries and surgery, including the prevention of surgeries. In some cases, we can also treat muscle-related spinal cord injuries.
(*) IMPORTANT NOTE ON CONTRAINDICATIONS: ARP IS NOT TO BE USED BY INDIVIDUALS WITH IMPLANTED ELECTRICAL DEVICES, OR WHO HAVE A BLOOD CLOT OR A HISTORY OF BLOOD CLOTS, AND SHOULD NOT BE APPLIED IN CASE OF PREGNANCIES.
What conditions can MyARP help with?
- Chronic pain
- Bone-on-bone conditions
- Post surgery recovery
- Recovery from stroke
- MS (Multiple Sclerosis)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neurological diseases
- Limited range of motion
- ACL-MCL-PCL-LCL-Meniscus tears
Who should NOT use MyARP ?
Treatment with MyARP is contraindicated in those patients with:
- Implanted electrical devices (i.e. pacemakers)
- History of blood clots
I am not a professional athlete. Will MyARP work for me?
Waking up in the morning with stiff muscles can be eliminated with one minute of MyARP to relax those muscles. If you work on your feet MyARP will help to return blood pooled in your lower extremities to the central circulation (i.e., improve venous return). If you have a difficult time sleeping, MyARP will relax you so you will sleep soundly. MyARP will eliminate most headaches in a few minutes. If you do Pilates, Yoga, or Tai Chi MyARP will allow you to get into positions you have never been able to get into. If you or anyone in the family is not flexible MyARP can have you loose and very flexible in minutes. MyARP will help you move freely and without pain, helping to improve your quality of life.
How can I instantly increase flexibility?
When you were a child you were more flexible . By the time you reached 4 years old you began copying the pattern of movement of the influencers around you such as Mother, Father etc. In doing so you created compensation patterns which prevent you from being able now to have the same ease of movement or flexibility you had as a child. With MyARP you instantly change the signal hence allowing your muscles to lengthen. This is how your flexibility is instantly increased. MyARP did NOT make you more flexible it just allows you to demonstrate what you have always been able to do. No amount of stretching or training will allow you to achieve what MyARP will do: your inability to move like a child is a neurological issue NOT a physiological.
How does your MyARP prevent injury?
All injury is caused by the body’s inability to absorb force and this is a neurological issue not a strength issue. Almost ALL athletic injuries are caused by the muscles not receiving the appropriate signal to turn on fast enough to absorb force. The muscles are the body’s main shock absorbers: when they are not firing correctly the force ends in tissues that are NOT designed to absorb force such as tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. These tissues are NOT designed to absorb force and consequently injury occurs. MyARP trains the muscles to fire fast enough to absorb many times the amount of force they usually do. Once the muscles are able to absorb force,that force does not go to tendons, ligaments, cartilage, or bone,and athletic injury potential is reduced.
How does MyARP improve my performance?
You have only trained your hardware:your muscles. You more than likely have never trained the software that fires those muscles. MyARP will reeducate your muscles to work in complete harmony and create a rhythmic dance between agonist and antagonist actions. Your muscles will perform better with less energy expenditure not having to inefficiently fight each other.
How does MyARP recover muscles so quickly and eliminate muscle soreness?
When you fatigue a muscle shortens and goes into concentric contraction to protect you. This signal is hardwired into your body. MyARP Training instantly changes that signal when fatigue sets in and allows your muscles to immediately lengthen eccentrically. Increased blood supply, and freedom movement are the means by which recovery is hence facilitated.
Can I build muscle faster with MyARP?
Much faster. When you are doing any type of weight training or resistance training you as a human are capable of contracting your muscles 2 times per second. MyARP allows you to contract the same muscle 245 and up to 500 times a second thus stimulating growth and strength much faster than traditional training methods.
