Revolutionizing Healing

Softwave Therapy is not a new concept but is instead a significant advancement in the field of medical technology. Most people have heard of lithotripsy, a procedure used to break down kidney stones using high-intensity sound waves. This therapy uses a similar approach to stimulate healing responses within the body without anesthesia or causing tissue damage.

This innovative technique employs acoustic sound waves approximately 1,000 times stronger than traditional therapeutic ultrasound, triggering a regenerative response in the body. Scientifically known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy, this care method could be your path to pain relief.

A Perfect Complement to Your Care

When used in conjunction with chiropractic, Softwave Therapy is the perfect complement. Chiropractic primarily focuses on improving the body’s mechanical function, improving motion, and reducing mechanical tension. In contrast, this therapy specializes in stimulating stem cell healing responses in previously injured tissues and managing chronic pain.

One of the remarkable features of Softwave Therapy is its efficiency. We perform a comprehensive evaluation of your condition to ensure you are a suitable candidate for the therapy. You may not realize that the diagnostic procedure is also a treatment!

We direct the acoustic energy into the affected tissues using a handheld applicator, similar to an ultrasound device. Through a process we call mapping, we pinpoint the precise areas needing attention. This process doesn’t damage healthy tissues, ensuring your comfort during the procedure.

Our goal is to reduce your pain by 20% to 50% during this initial visit. Many patients, even those suffering from severe pain and using devices to assist with walking, experience significant relief after just one session.

Your Healing Journey

For those who qualify, therapy typically involves one session per week for four to eight weeks, occasionally extending to ten weeks in severe cases. Subsequent sessions are briefer, lasting between three and 10 minutes. Investing just a little time could lead to remarkable improvements in your well-being.

By the end of your cycle, usually within eight to 12 weeks, a comprehensive healing response will have begun in your body, resulting in the complete resolution of pain or reaching your maximum medical improvement.
