Chronic pain can severely impact one’s quality of life and limit everyday activities. While some opt to manage their pain with prescription medication, others seek to avoid the potential side effects of drugs. This is where non-invasive therapies like SoftWave come into the picture.
SoftWave therapy is gradually gaining popularity as a drug-free option for managing chronic pain. However, before deciding to try this therapy, many patients want to know: “Is it safe?”. For many patients, the answer is yes!
How Does It Work?
SoftWave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses unfocused shockwaves to promote natural healing at the cellular level. It is a safe therapy that doesn’t cause any side effects in most cases. In fact, many healthcare providers use SoftWave therapy for post-surgical rehabilitation to accelerate healing after surgery. It is also used to treat various other conditions like chronic pain, inflammation, and musculoskeletal injuries.
SoftWave therapy can be safely combined with most prescription medications. However, it’s important to inform your healthcare provider about the medications you are taking before starting a SoftWave therapy session.
Who Is A Good Candidate For SoftWave Treatment?
For patients with metal implants like pins, plates, or joint replacements, SoftWave therapy is a safe option. SoftWave therapy is also generally safe for most patients with blood pressure issues like high or low blood pressure.
If you have a pacemaker, then SoftWave therapy may not be suitable for you. It’s also not safe for pregnant individuals or those who have cancer.
SoftWave therapy has been a preferred treatment by many leading medical providers across the country, including Cleveland Clinic, Shepherd’s Center, and Memorial Sloan Kettering, for treating various conditions.
If you are planning on using SoftWave therapy, it’s essential to consult with Dr. Prestin to determine its suitability for your condition. With proper guidance, SoftWave therapy can be a safe and effective way to manage chronic pain and improve your overall quality of life without drugs or surgery.
