What is Softwave Therapy?
SoftWave TRT uses patented technology to reach an injured area at the cellular level to successfully turn on the body's natural healing process.
- Increases blood supply
- Stimulates, activates and recruits resident stem cells
- Accelerates wound healing
- Repairs, remodels and regenerates tissue
- Induces antibacterial effect
- Reduces acute and chronic pain
How does SoftWave work?
SoftWaves are created by means of a high-energy electrical discharge in water. The voltage is discharged between the opposing tips (plus and minus pole) of an electrode. The arcing or spark gap causes an equalization of voltage between the two tips of the electrode whereby a hot plasma bubble is created. This bubble explodes in all directions, compresses the surrounding water, and generates a pressure > 10 MPa within only a few nanoseconds (10-9 ns).
SoftWave low intensity, unfocused energy is delivered via our patented parabolic reflector applicator in the form of parallel waves. SoftWave technology offers the ONLY UNFOCUSED SHOCK WAVE on the market. Despite this electrohydraulic shock wave energy in water traveling 5 times faster (3355mph) than in air (767 mph), it does not cause microtrauma.
How long is a typical Softwave Treatment?
5 minutes. SoftWave Treatments are targeted and effective.
How long does it take to feel or see results?
Many patients report results in the first session, but some cases may take 2 or more treatments.
Can softwave replace a surgical procedure?
SoftWave Therapy is a great alternative for many to surgery. This should be discussed with your doctor to evaluate on a case-by-case basis. There are risks involved with a surgical procedure, anesthesia, and the occurrence of scar tissue, just as there are risks with delaying surgery in certain cases. If you are considering surgery, we are able to accommodate same-day consultation scheduling with one of our doctors in most cases. Give us a call or schedule something below.
Is it safe? What does the Treatment Feel like?
SoftWave Therapy is safe and effective. Most patients feel no discomfort at all. Some report a very mild pinching for the duration of the treatment - it is very mild and we get no complaints.
