Roots Chiropractic is proud to offer Softwave Therapy in Derby. We know, however, that we won't be the last because of the incredible results our patients have gotten from this therapy!
If you have repetitive, chronic pain or injury, we offer a natural, non-injectable way to help you heal through Softwave Therapy. The results are unbelievable and can even seem miraculous!
This therapy uses sound waves sent through the body at a high speed. Your brain reacts by sending stem cells to the area to repair damage. Stem cells are always dormant in the body, ready to go anywhere that they're needed. We simply jump start this healing process. In the short term you have pain reduction and decreased inflammation. The relief is usually instant! Over the next 90-120 days the cells migrated to the area will help clean up and repair the damaged tissue.
The typical form of stem cell therapy can cost several thousand dollars for a single treatment. Options like cortisone shots don't always work, and typically require multiple rounds. With Softwave Therapy, you will do about 6-8 treatments to get results. After that, you have the option to do a booster visit about every 2 months to ensure your problem doesn't return.
