SoftWave Therapy

SoftWave Therapy - The Chiropractic Source

TRT/MTS SoftWave Therapy is a noninvasive therapeutic device that uses a patented breakthrough method of shock-wave generation.

TRT/MTS SoftWave Therapy is a noninvasive therapeutic device that uses a patented breakthrough method of shock-wave generation. It brings unprecedented advantages to sports and regenerative medicine. It rapidly relieves chronic pain and greatly accelerates recoveries with sustaining results. This is not an incremental change; it is TRANSFORMATIONAL and very unique!

The TRT OrthoGold 100 SoftWave is the only Unfocused Extracorpeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) technology available, and is scientifically validated to accomplish the following:

  1. Immediately shuts down the inflammatory process at the treatment site. Results are typically an immediate and sustained relief of chronic pain and releases muscular adhesions / tightness. Improvement of range of motion is a common result.
  2. Sustained Improvement of Blood Flow. This has been linked to a release of various immune factors and increased ATP that leads to angio/vasculogenesis (growth of new blood vessels) at the treatment site
  3. TRT SoftWave is scientifically validated to recruit and activate endogenous stem cells production, allowing the body to truly start healing from within.

Additionally, not only is this Softwave machine used for treatment, it also has a diagnostic feedback in which the “origin of pain” can be precisely identified, serving an invaluable tool for proper treatment. This feedback mechanism allows us to know exactly where the problem.

We use the saying “You got to Feel It to Heal It.” – 5 to 6 sessions is the initial protocol for a single joint injury

SoftWave is Unique, Patented and Profound. The patented unfocused electro-hydraulic design of the TRT/MTS SoftWave device brings unique and profound advantages for healing and recoveries of the human body:

  • 100% atraumatic to tissue and cells
  • Near-immediate pain relief in some conditions.
  • Sustained blood flow improvement.
  • A wave delivery zone thousands of times larger than focused or planar designs.
  • Demonstrably more efficient and effective.
  • Typically, 5-6 applications or fewer needed.
  • Real-time biofeedback provides precision guidance of application to problem origin areas. No need for imaging or trigger point references.
  • Transformational vs. Incremental.
  • The only Unfocused Electrohydraulic ESWT available in North America, and it has FDA 510(k) clearance.

Additionally, TRT/MTS SoftWave Therapy is…

  • Utilized by professional sports teams (Cleveland Indians, Brooklyn Nets, NY Giants, LA Lakers)
  • Utilized by top medical institutions (Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic)
  • Top choice of many sports legends, active and retired (See Testimonials below)
  • Has helped thousands heal and recover in record time.

All Shock Wave Therapies are NOT Created Equal

It’s best to refer to this device as “SoftWave Therapy” as there is much confusion regarding “Shock Wave Therapy.” There are many manufacturers that produce devices that do not actually create a “Shock Wave” yet are marketed as such. This unfortunately has created confusion in the marketplace, as well as turned off many to the technology since the mislabeled devises produce inferior results.

What are the different types of Shock Wave Therapies?

It’s extremely important to understand where SoftWave fits into the big picture of the very broad market of “shock wave therapy.” There are 2 main categories of shock wave therapy.

Radial Pulse Therapy

  • They do not produce a true “shock wave” as defined by physics. The type of energy that it creates is a a sound wave and they work on a different principle from shock wave therapy. They are also comparatively limited to what they can treat.
  • Radial Pulse devices have been incorrectly referred to as “shock wave” for so long that it has stuck, though it is technically not correct.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)

1. Focused ESWT:

This type relies on microtrauma to the tissue, has a very small treatment area and requires many applications over weeks/months at time.

Within Focused ESWT, there are three ways to produce the wave:

  • Electrohydraulic: Of the 3 methods, it is demonstrated to be the most efficient and effective
  • Piezoelectric: Focused and Focused/Planar. Very little published science, typically many applications needed
  • Electromagnetic: Scientifically shown not to have enough energy to produce an actual shock wave, little published science, many applications needed

2. Unfocused ESWT (SoftWave Therapy).

  • TRT owns the patents for unfocused ESWT in North America and utilizes the electrohydraulic method to generate the waves. It is created by a cobination of light, heat, and an electrohydraulically produced sound that combines to create a true “shockwave.”
  • It is non-traumatic to tissue or cells (causes no microtrauma or damage to any tissue)
  • The treatment zone is thousands times larger than focused or planar devices, due to its large “unfocused” applicator head
  • Scientifically validated to elicit a strong anti-inflammatory effect and to recruit/activate endogenous stem cells, to vascularize tissue, promote healing, and to kill off pathogens.

BALLISTIC SHOCKWAVE (Does not produce a shockwave)
“Although the ballistic source investigated marketed both the terms “shock wave” and “focused’ the device technically does NOT generate a focused shock wave. Electrohydraulic (EH) sources employ focusing by means of a reflector and generate shock waves at the spark source; for all settings the EH results in a shock wave at the focus. Electromagnetic and piezoelectric sources also use focusing but do NOT generate shock waves at the source.

RADIAL SHOCK WAVE THERAPY: (Does not produce a shockwave at current pressure output)
Acoustic Field Characterization of the Duolith: Measurements and Modeling of a Clinical Shock Wave Therapy Device
“It was shown that shock formation did not occur for any machine settings and that a true shock formation could be reached if the maximum initial pressure output of the device is doubled.”

SoftWave Therapy has the Science

Patented TRT SoftWave stands alone in the industry with quality and quantity of peer-reviewed published scientific literature validating mechanisms of action at molecular and cellular levels. All “shock wave” devices are not created equally, and one must be sure to read the scientific research applying to each specific device, if one is to gain an accurate understanding of the particular device one is seeking to learn about. Many “shock wave” distributors list studies on their websites that did not use the specific device they offer but are presented as if they did. AcoustTek only lists scientific studies that used TRT/MTS devices.

The Best Kept Secret in Professional Sports:

The best kept secret in professional sport! Top Sports Medicine Clinicians across the country have been quietly using SoftWave for years on injured star athletes, seeing unprecedented acceleration of recovery times. As success after success mounts, SoftWave is now becoming more widely understood to be the profound advantage that makes a tangible difference to who plays on the field and who stays in rehab.

“Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is broadly used as a non-surgical therapy in various diseases for its pro-angiogenic and anti-inflammatory effects. ”

“We can summarize the final effect of ESWT as a general improvement of tissue homeostasis and metabolism, accompanied by improving of the tissue self-healing abilities. Evidence from basic science and clinical studies indicates that this effect involves the ability of shock waves (SW) to support proliferation and differentiation of stem cells, which significantly contribute to tissue healing, but besides stem cells, many other cell targets, including endothelial cells, bone cells, and small unmyelinated nerve fibers, have been involved in ESWT therapeutic potential”

“SW are biphasic high-energy acoustic waves characterized by an initial positive very rapid phase of high amplitude, followed at a distance of microseconds by a sudden phase of mild depression responsible of the biological activity on living tissues. In agreement with the definition proposed by Huang C and collaborators as a therapeutic intervention that reduce and reverse injury to damaged tissues or promote the homeostasis of healthy tissues by mechanical means at the molecular, cellular, or tissue level SW are today considered a form of mechanotherapy. As for most forms of mechanotherapy in clinical use, ESWT mainly focus on improving tissue regeneration and, consistent with this, clinical results indicates that besides reduction and/or inhibition of apoptosis, the clinical efficacy of ESWT is tightly related to its ability to improve neovascularization and matrix remodeling in tissues”

“The body of scientific data demonstrating that ESWT can induce tissue healing and regeneration through mechano-transduction has brought to the present view of SW as immunomodulators during the wound healing process, which is also well in line with recent evidence indicating that SW influence the TLR3 pathway.”
