SoftWave Therapy at Foundation Family Chiropractic

softwave therapy on persons armIf you suffer from chronic pain or are recovering from an injury, our Summerville practice location offers SoftWave therapy to help increase blood flow and circulation, promoting repair for the area of concern in a non-invasive manner.

SoftWave therapy complements chiropractic adjustments by targeting degenerative cells to heal themselves. As your chiropractor works to improve the structure and help your body heal more effectively, they can also hack the body’s healing mechanisms using this technology.

In turn, as you regenerate vascularization and experience stem cell activation, your body is able to increase the speed and efficiency with which you’re healing.

Promote More Effective Healing

The therapy works by emitting a sound wave into the practice member’s tissue, affecting the mechanoreceptors inside of a cell. The body then recruits healing factors to that area because SoftWave tricks the cell into thinking its mechanoreceptors have been damaged by way of micro traumas.

Applied with a hand held instrument, when it’s moved over healthy tissue, you won’t feel a thing. However, when it’s moved over damaged tissue, you may feel like a ball-peen hammer has been tapped over the area. This helps us target exactly where you’ll need therapy moving forward.

Your First Appointment: A Discovery Session

During your first appointment, we’ll use the SoftWave system to pinpoint exactly where your damaged tissue is and determine whether you are a good candidate for this kind of treatment. Your chiropractor will also take you through an exam to test your range of motion and the effect on your activities of daily living (ADLs).

With that information, we’ll make recommendations on how to proceed with your care plan and what that timeline will look like as a practice member.

Therapy Benefits Abound

FDA research shows a proven increase in vascularization and stem cell regeneration over time after SoftWave therapy, encouraging the body’s ability to heal without invasive surgery or pain medication.

In our practice members, we’ve seen great changes in their shoulders and knees, the lumbar area, the sacroiliac joints, and improvement with plantar fasciitis. We’ve also witnessed practice members with rheumatoid arthritis have many positive changes in their flexibility and range of motion.
