What is SoftWave Therapy?
SoftWave Tissue Regeneration leverages acoustic wave technology to encourage the body’s natural healing properties. This unique technology helps to promote cellular regeneration and increased blood flow to affected areas. Regardless of whether you’re looking for relief from pain, recovering from a sports injury, or simply looking to improve your overall well-being, SoftWave may be an excellent option to avoid surgery and potentially addictive medications.
The History of SoftWave
SoftWave technology, which is also often referred to as Shockwave therapy, is not necessarily a new technology. You can trace back the first use of shock waves in medicine to the 1950’s. Companies like SoftWave have been using and improving this innovative technology for decades. This unique technology is currently being utilized by many of the top research and medical centers, as well as a whole host of professional sports organizations.
How is SoftWave Therapy Different from Shockwave Therapy?
SoftWave therapy utilizes SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Technology, which leverages short, fast, and highly intense bursts of energy (shockwaves) into soft tissue that has been injured or is painful. SoftWave is currently the only company on the market that utilizes unfocused true shock wave technology in their devices.
The SoftWaveTRT device that we use at St. Paul Chiropractic and Natural Medicine uses a deeper therapeutic energy zone than other shockwave devices. This helps to provide increased healing that is spread over a larger and deeper area of the body.
Is SoftWave Therapy FDA Approved?
Yes, SoftWaveTRT is FDA approved for pain reduction, improved blood supply, activation of connective tissue, treatment of second-degree burns, and the treatment of chronic diabetic foot ulcers.
How Long Does a SoftWave Therapy Treatment Last?
Most SoftWave therapy sessions last between 5-15 minutes and are repeated weekly for 3-5 weeks.
What Can SoftWave Therapy Treat?
SoftWave Therapy is a viable alternative to surgery for many musculoskeletal and soft tissue conditions. Shockwave therapy can also be used to:
- Improve blood flow
- Reduce inflammation
- Stimulate collagen production
- Increase cell growth
- Breakdown calcium build-up
In addition, SoftWave therapy can be used as one of the key steps to recovery for a number of different injuries or conditions. For instance, a sports injury may ultimately require surgery, but SoftWave therapy can help reduce pain and speed up the healing process.
