Does the SoftWave Therapy hurt?
SoftWave® Therapy is also a diagnostic tool because the only tissue that responds to the acoustic waves is damaged or inflamed tissue. So there will be pain for the patient when we are in the right spot. The pain is tolerable and will go away as the treatment progresses. This is an indication that the treatment is working and the healing process has begun. Most people describe it as a pain that “hurts so good” and is followed by immediate relief.
How long does treatment take?
The typical course of treatment is between 15 and 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Treatments are typically received once a week. Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis.
How many treatments does it take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. The typical treatment protocol is three treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis or neuropathy may require additional or ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How long before results are felt?
Most people experience immediate pain relief following the first treatment. However, to receive the full benefit you will need to complete a series of 3 to 6 treatments. Not everyone responds to therapy and results cannot be guaranteed.
Can it be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment?
Yes, SoftWave® Therapy is sometimes even more effective when combined with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy, assisted stretching, PRP, stem cell and exosome injections, and following surgery.
Is the treatment FDA approved?
SoftWave® Therapy is FDA cleared for pain reduction, increasing blood flow and circulation, activating connective tissue, and treating diabetic foot ulcers.
How much does SoftWave® Therapy cost?
The technician will be able to provide pricing after they have a chance to thoroughly review your specific condition and create a customized treatment plan. Typically, treatments cost between $400-$600.
Are the results long term?
Although no results can be guaranteed, for most conditions, the results of SoftWave® Therapy are permanent. This is possible because of the stem cells in your body that are induced by the treatment migrate to the inflamed or otherwise damaged area. The stem cells heal the damaged tissue permanently.
