How SoftWave Therapy Works

SoftWave therapy uses unfocused shockwaves to penetrate deep into tissues, stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. These shockwaves increase blood flow and promote the regeneration of damaged tissues. The result is reduced pain and improved mobility.

The Science Behind It

The technology behind SoftWave therapy is based on mechanotransduction, where mechanical energy is converted into biochemical signals. This process awakens dormant stem cells and growth factors, accelerating tissue repair and reducing inflammation.

Effective for Various Conditions

SoftWave therapy can treat a variety of chronic pain conditions:

  1. Tendinitis
  2. Bursitis
  3. Plantar fasciitis
  4. Arthritis
  5. Lower back pain
  6. Chronic neck pain

Real-Life Experiences

Many patients have experienced significant improvement after undergoing SoftWave therapy. For instance, Michelle Gilleran, a patient at Beard Family Chiropractic, shared how SoftWave therapy helped her recover from a workout injury that had been troubling her for months.

Non-Invasive and Drug-Free

One of the most appealing aspects of SoftWave therapy is that it is non-invasive and does not require medication. This makes it an excellent option for individuals looking to avoid surgery or the side effects of pain medication.

Minimal to No Side Effects

Unlike other treatments, SoftWave therapy has minimal to no side effects. Patients may experience slight discomfort during the procedure, but this usually subsides quickly.

Quick Recovery Time

SoftWave therapy sessions are short, often lasting around 15-20 minutes. There is no downtime, allowing patients to return to their daily activities immediately.

Long-Lasting Relief

Patients often report long-lasting relief from chronic pain after just a few sessions. The regenerative effects of the therapy continue to work even after the treatment has ended.

Initial Consultation

Before starting SoftWave therapy, a consultation is necessary to assess your condition and determine if you are a suitable candidate. During this consultation, your chiropractor will review your medical history and perform a physical examination.

The Treatment Process

During the treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver shockwaves to the affected area. The process is relatively quick and typically takes less than half an hour.

Post-Treatment Care

After the session, you may experience mild soreness, similar to what you might feel after a workout. This is a normal response and usually dissipates within a few days.

Arthritis

For those suffering from arthritis, SoftWave therapy can be a game-changer. It helps reduce joint inflammation, increasing mobility and reducing pain.

Lower Back and Neck Pain

Chronic lower back and neck pain can severely impact your quality of life. SoftWave therapy targets the root cause of the pain, providing relief and helping you regain mobility.
