Healing Injuries Faster and Optimizing Your Workouts with a Nervous-System-First Approach | Garrett Salpeter

Healing Injuries Faster and Optimizing Your Workouts with a Nervous-System-First Approach | Garrett Salpeter

When the body experiences an injury, the brain quickly takes over. The nervous system is the key to healing but is often overlooked or ignored by traditional medical treatments. By targeting the nervous system, can we recover from injuries and reduce pain more effectively?


Garrett Salpeter taps into the power of the Nervous System to promote healing.

Using his training in Engineering and Neuroscience to create NeuFit and the patented Neubie device, Garrett is helping so many heal from injuries. He and his team have trained thousands of doctors, therapists, and other professionals in the NeuFit methodology. These practitioners have used NeuFit to help patients recover faster from injuries, reverse chronic pain, and restore function lost due to neurological injuries or diseases. Many are able to achieve improvements in fitness and performance and other physical pursuits. Garrett’s work is also used by dozens of professional sports teams and universities and is the subject of multiple ongoing trials evaluating NeuFit’s effectiveness. The studies focus on areas like post-operative recovery, muscle hypertrophy, and functional recovery from stroke, MS, and neuropathy. Garrett is the host of the NeuFit Undercurrent Podcast and bestselling author of the book, The NeuFit Method.

In this episode,

Not only did Garrett and I geek out on the scientific aspects of how the body works, but we dove deep into what healing from an injury is like. If you’ve struggled with injuries or pain, you know how hard it can be to find relief. That’s where NeuFit technology comes in. NeuFit is a cutting-edge approach to healing that focuses on the nervous system. According to Garrett, the nervous system is the key to healing and optimal function in the body. By targeting the nervous system, NeuFit can help people recover from injuries and reduce pain in a way that traditional methods often cannot.

The Neubie device is a key component of NeuFit technology, developed to help people recover from injuries and reduce chronic pain. This non-invasive device uses low-level electrical stimulation to target the nervous system and promote healing. It works by sending a small electrical current through the skin and into the muscles, which activates the nervous system and stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Overall, the Neubie is a powerful tool for helping people recover from injuries and reduce pain. Its non-invasive nature and versatility make it an appealing option for those seeking an alternative to traditional treatment methods.

I’m so excited for you guys to hear about this amazing technology and how passionate Garrett is about helping people heal. It’s not just about healing from a broken foot or a shoulder injury, it’s about what NeuFit can do for people suffering from chronic conditions. This could change the game! I’m so excited to continue following Garrett’s work and see what kind of healing could take place in the future.

    Great podcast on the Neubie! Tapping into the neural system is the real deal. This changes the path of recovery and adaptation. Neuroplasticity of the brain is an interesting topic and needs to be pursued more.
