Softwave Stem Cell Therapy

Happy womanAt Optimal Family Chiropractic we’re pleased to offer Softwave Stem Cell therapy, a type of regenerative treatment that uses stem cells or cellular material derived from stem cells to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. This therapy is ideal for patients who have tried other options such as injections or physical therapy for their pain and limited range of motion, but didn’t get the results they were seeking.

How Does It Work?

Softwave Therapy uses sound waves sent through the body at a high speed of just under 3500 miles per hour. Your brain reacts by sending your own stem cells to the area to repair damage. Stem cells are always dormant in the body, ready to travel anywhere they’re needed. We simply jump-start this healing process. Benefits of Softwave Therapy include increased circulation and improved joint and muscle flexibility.

Who Can Benefit?

Here are some conditions that may respond to the therapy:

  • Arthritic knees
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Inflammation
  • Jumper’s knee
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Wrist arthritis
  • Ankle pain

What Does It Feel Like?

We first start the treatment away from the injury, just so a patient can feel it, which is like a tapping that’s going into the body. Once the therapy is directed over injured areas, whether it’s inflammation, scar tissue adhesions, or necrosis, the discomfort does increase. However, it’s like what somebody might feel from a deep tissue massage.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a session take?

A session takes about 4-6 minutes.

How many sessions are needed?

For acute issues, such as an injury, 4-6 treatments. For a chronic issue, 8-10 sessions are usually needed. Then for maintenance care, patients usually come in 2-4 times a year.

Is it safe, and are there any side effects?

The therapy is safe. On the initial treatment, you may experience some stiffness and an increase in pain or discomfort for about 24 hours.

Is there anyone who can’t have the therapy?

Those with pacemakers can’t have the therapy. It can’t be done if you’ve had a cortisone shot within 21 days, or if you’re on blood thinners.

How much will my care cost?

It depends on your condition. The cost of therapy can range from $400 to about $1,000 for a package.
