SoftWave Therapy: Addressing Common Questions about Camarata Chiropractic's Innovative Treatment

Published June 1st, 2023 by Camarata Chiropractic

SoftWave Therapy has gained recognition as a highly effective treatment for various musculoskeletal conditions. This innovative therapy harnesses the power of acoustic waves to stimulate healing and tissue regeneration. At Camarata Chiropractic, we offer Softwave in Rochester and we have witnessed the transformative effects of SoftWave Therapy in our patients. Many individuals have experienced significant pain reduction, improved mobility, and accelerated healing as a result of this cutting-edge treatment.

How Long Does SoftWave Therapy Last?

The duration of SoftWave Therapy sessions can vary depending on the specific condition being treated and individual patient needs. Typically, a session lasts between 10 to 20 minutes. The number of sessions required may also vary, and our experienced team at Camarata Chiropractic will provide a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique situation. 

Typically, on average, after 6-8 treatments, we should have the maximum stem cell production that will continue to migrate and repair the tissue over the next 8-12 weeks. Research shows a success rate for musculoskeletal disorders of 65-91%. This also depends on severity, frequency and chronicity of patient condition. We can discuss this in more depth on your Day 1 $49 intro visit.

Is SoftWave Therapy Covered by Insurance?

No, not as of now. We have tried submitting to various health insurance companies on the patients behalf with constant denial. We have also spoken on the phone with insurance company representatives. SoftWave Therapy is NOT being covered under insurance. It is a patient self-investment. SoftWave Therapy may be eligible for reimbursement through Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). We recommend checking with your specific account provider for detailed information on eligible expenses and required documentation. (We have patients using HSA/FSA that has been covering SoftWave Therapy!)

Is SoftWave and Shockwave Therapy the Same Thing?

While both SoftWave TRT Therapy and Shockwave Therapy utilize sound waves for treatment, they differ in terms of technology and therapeutic approach. SoftWave TRT Therapy utilizes electro-hydaulic supersonic acoustic waves that travel 3355 mph into the tissue and/or joint being treated promoting tissue regeneration and healing at the deepest layers! 

SoftWave TRT has put over $25 million into research and development, has over 48+ open and active patents and holds the only patent for peripheral nerve regeneration! SoftWave TRT is also FDA cleared and approved. SoftWave TRT does not cause or rely on microtrauma but rather mechanotransduction, when the acoustic waves compresses and expands the cell membrane mimic a "trauma" without actually causing trauma, allowing increased blood supply to the area, decrease in inflammation and stimulation, activation and recruitment of resident stem cells to truly heal the effected tissues, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs, cartilage, nerves that are damaged, arthritic, scar tissue or inflamed.

Is SoftWave Worth the Investment?

SoftWave Therapy has proven to be a valuable investment for many individuals seeking non-invasive and effective solutions for pain relief. While the cost of SoftWave Therapy can vary depending on factors such as the areas being treated and number of sessions required, it is important to consider the potential benefits and long-term impact on your quality of life. The transformative effects and improved well-being experienced by our patients make SoftWave Therapy a worthwhile investment for many.

What Does a SoftWave Session Cost?

The cost of a SoftWave Therapy session can vary depending on factors such as the treatment area and the number of sessions required. We recommend contacting Camarata Chiropractic directly to inquire about the specific cost of SoftWave Therapy sessions based on your individual needs. Our team is committed to providing transparent and personalized information regarding treatment costs. We can discuss this in more depth on your Day 1 $49 intro visit.

What Are the Risks of SoftWave Therapy?

SoftWave Therapy is a non-invasive and well-tolerated treatment option with minimal risks. The procedure is generally considered safe and does not involve significant side effects. However, it is essential to consult with our experienced practitioners at Camarata Chiropractic to discuss your medical history and any potential contraindications to ensure the suitability of SoftWave Therapy for your specific situation.

Who Is a Good Candidate for SoftWave Therapy?

SoftWave Therapy can benefit individuals experiencing various neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. It is especially suitable for those who prefer non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical treatment options or those who have tried injections and/or already had surgery but looking for continued healing and pain relief. Our team at Camarata Chiropractic can assess your specific condition and medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for SoftWave Therapy.

How Painful Is SoftWave Therapy?

When we run the device over healthy, normal tissue, no biofeedback response is produced. When we run the device over damaged tissues, inflamed tissue, arthritis, scar tissue and/or areas of poor circulation a positive biofeedback response is produced! When this positive response is produced we know you are a great candidate!

SoftWave Therapy is generally well-tolerated by patients and is not considered painful. The acoustic waves used in this therapy are gentle and designed to stimulate healing without causing discomfort. Some individuals may experience a mild tingling or pulsating sensation during the treatment, but it is typically well-received and does not result in significant pain.
