Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts at least 12 weeks. The pain may feel sharp or dull, causing a burning or aching sensation in the affected areas. It may be steady or intermittent, coming and going without any apparent reason. Chronic pain can occur in nearly any part of your body.

It must be explained that there are two mechanisms of action for SoftWaves™. First, Softwaves reduce inflammation and swelling oftentimes immediately. The treatment for Chronic Pain can lead to immediate or near-term reduction of pain and swelling. The effects of the first treatment can best be explained via a comparison to a deep tissue massage. These massages are painful at times but result in an immediate improvement. This first reduction in pain is not permanent healing. This reduction in pain is due to managing the inflammatory system in the short term. The second, more important mechanism of SoftWaves™ is that the pulses fool the body into thinking that it has been injured. The waves cause the localized cell walls to become permeable and pass proteins through the walls via exosomes that mimic cellular injury. This stimulates the body to initiate a biologic cascade, including the production of stem cell attractants, the recruitment of stem cells, and the activation and differentiation of stem cells that leads to new and healthy tissue. This “healing” takes place over 12 weeks from the last treatment. Patients can return to normal lifestyle immediately after treatment including light athletic workouts. Gyms such as CrossFit should be avoided until the patient returns to health. Whatever a doctor has prescribed in the past, such as stretching, and PT should be continued.
