Okemos Family Chiropractic Provides SoftWave Therapy

Acoustic wave therapy, the worldwide standard of care for stones, pain pathologies and bone healing, is considered of non-significant risk when used for the majority of indications, such as musculoskeletal conditions, degenerative conditions, neuropathy and chronic pain. Dr. Kirby Perrault and Dr. Craig Heinrich at Okemos Family Chiropractic use SoftWaves technology to produce both positive and negative (tensile) forces on cells.

            The shearing forces momentarily make the membranes permeable while still keeping the cell intact to fool the body into thinking an injury has occurred, and then initiating the natural biologic process of repair. Four to eight weeks after a patient’s first treatment, there is typically an increase in small, medium and large blood vessels of up to 400 percent and a corresponding increase in permanent blood supply, which helps in fighting infection.

            Independent studies have proven SoftWave therapy to be a highly effective treatment for conditions related to damaged bone and muscle tissues. The results indicate that up to 91 percent of patients experience successful healing.
