Treating Complex Pain with PiezoWave2 with Dr. Grove Higgins

 

PiezoWave2 Evaluation at Neuroathlete

After completing a month-long evaluation using PiezoWave2 in his practice, Dr. Higgins quickly saw the value in the technology, both in terms of patient outcomes and revenue. “The evaluation was critical to us being able to quickly pickup on how we could use the technology effectively in the practice and for our patients,” shared Dr. Higgins. During the evaluation, Dr. Higgins and his team contacted patients with lingering issues that were challenging cases. They asked these patients if they would be willing to try a series of PiezoWave2 sessions – most said, “yes.” “We did about 150 treatments – 2-3 sessions per patient – over the month of our evaluation,” said Dr. Higgins.

“During 4 short weeks, we got a huge amount of experience and saw great results. Some individuals got instantaneous results and other took multiple sessions.”

Following the evaluation and the positive outcomes, Dr. Higgins had no hesitation purchasing PiezoWave2 and integrating it into his practice as a modality used both as a standalone treatment and in combination with other modalities.

“The most important aspect we discovered with PiezoWave2 is its ability to be both a diagnostic and treatment tool,” stated Dr. Higgins.

“From a diagnostic standpoint, we were able to find out issues associated with the primary issues. Often by treating the secondary, or silent issue; we were then able to resolve the primary issue.” With his background in anatomy and neurology, Dr. Higgins said that using PiezoWave2 to search the “body’s wiring and find things” made 100% anatomical sense with regard to nerve pathways.”

“What we really like about PiezoWave2 is that is allows the patient to become much more active in their treatment,” said Dr. Higgins. “The injury flaring capabilities of the PiezoWave2 and the process of using patient feedback to guide where to treat has gotten my patients much more active in the treatment process.”

For the patient, it allows them to connect with their body and what’s going on in a very tangible way. Patients become much more compliant with their entire treatment plan.”Because they used PiezoWave2 so extensively during their trial, Dr. Higgins said they quickly and effectively were able to integrate it into the practice and see patient value in outcomes and return on investment.

 

PiezoWave2 Case Studies: Accelerating Recovery 

Following are two case studies from Dr. Higgins practice using PiezoWave2:

Toe Arthritis: 

• Runner with chronically arthritic toe joint arthritis on the path to fusion surgery. Dr. Higgins treated the pain from the injury with PiezoWave2. Within one session, the runner had significant relief. After three sessions, the patient was back to running completely pain-free and has not needed treatment since. For now, although the arthritis is still present, surgery is off the table as function has been restored and pain removed.

Plantar Fasciitis:

• Tennis player in late 60s who played tennis five days a week and said it was what kept him healthy both physically and mentally. Due to painful plantar fasciitis, he had to cut back to two days of tennis, which was very upsetting to him. After a single PiezoWave2 session, he played three sets the next day – something he’d not been able to do for a long time. After three treatments, the pain was completely gone.

Facial Pain:

Additionally, Dr. Higgins is partnering with dentists and orthodontists who refer their TMJ and facial pain clients to him. “Facial pain is phenomenally hard to treat,” stated Dr. Higgins. “After working with an LA-based dentist and learning his protocols for facial pain using PiezoWave2, we’ve had great outcomes getting relief for patients dealing with this condition.” Dr. Higgins shared that PiezoWave2 is effective with most all soft tissue injury; helping to diagnose, break and treat chronic pain cycles.

“PiezoWave2 allows me to diagnose pain at its source and treat it effectively,” said Dr. Higgins. “It speeds up recovery and allows me to also free up my time.”

Dr. Higgins does the PiezoWave2 treatments as part of a more comprehensive patient session as well as a standalone therapy. He has easily been able to sell PiezoWave2 packages – 10 sessions for $650 – and has other members of his team do those sessions, which frees up his time. An average PiezoWave2 session is 15-minutes.

“We actually asked our patients during our initial product evaluation what they would be willing to pay for PiezoWave2 treatments, and they help us set our pricing.”
