SoftWave TRT Orthogold

This technology is revolutionizing the healthcare industry.  Imagine a machine that helps the body to heal damaged tissue, increases blood supply and decreases inflammation WITHOUT any anesthesia, surgery or hospitalization!!  This therapy does all this and more for a fraction of the cost of just ONE medical stem cell treatment.  Locally, orthopedists are charging a minimum of $4000 for 1 Stem Cell procedure.  You can spend up to $50,000 or more for multiple treatments in places like Panama City, Panama.  For a drastically less investment in your health, you can have several sessions without having to travel or risk the side effects of anesthesia and surgery.  Best of all, it only takes a few minutes to get these amazing results.  Visit the company website at for more information.

Don't be fooled by imitation copy cats that are being sold in the USA that claim to be the same as the Orthogold series of ESWT equipment.  They are NOT FDA CLEARED and they DO NOT have the same therapeutic capability or benefits.  The owner's of these devices are offering discounted fees to lure you in so please beware and ask for the SoftWave TRT Orthogold machine by name!  See side by side comparison below.  

SoftWave Therapy is a noninvasive therapeutic device (It is also known as "The Stem Cell Machine") that uses a patented breakthrough method of shock-wave generation. It brings unprecedented advantages to sports and regenerative medicine (old injuries). 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 SoftWave OrthoGold TRT is the only Unfocused Extracorpeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) technology available in North America, and is scientifically validated to accomplish the following:

     -Immediately shut 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 after the very first treatment.

     -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. SoftWave is scientifically validated to recruit and activate endogenous                     stem cell production, allowing the body to truly start healing from within. Stem Cells are the key to tissue regeneration and repair.

     -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 as an invaluable tool for proper treatment. This feedback mechanism allows us to know exactly where the problem is.

  • 100% atraumatic to tissues and cells (safe - no damage or trauma created).  No bruising after treatment like radial impulse treatments.
  • Near-immediate pain relief in some conditions.
  • Can break up fibrous adhesions and micro calcifications in joints and tendons.  Penetrates up to 12 cm deep (4.7 inches).
  • A wave delivery zone thousands of times larger than focused or planar designs (kidney stones and plantar fasciitis)
  • Demonstrably more efficient and effective.  Up to 91% helpful for musculo-skeletal conditions.
  • Real-time biofeedback provides precision guidance of application to problem origin areas.  No need for imaging or trigger point references.
  • The only Unfocused Electrohydraulic ESWT available in North America, and it has FDA 510(k) clearance. 
  • A fraction of the cost of medical stem cell therapy (1 orthopedic stem cell treatment is about $5000 and is very invasive involving blood removal and injections as well as anesthesia).  SoftWave treatments are spread out over 6 to 8 visits for most patients and is an affordable treatment option.  
  • Utilized by top medical institutions including:  The Cleveland Clinic,  Mayo Clinic,  University of Pittsburgh Medical Center,  University of California San Francisco, Baylor Medical Center,  Northwestern University Hospital,  Shepherd Center)
  • Used by the following sports team and many more:  Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Lakers,  New York Knicks,  Brooklyn Nets,  Cleveland Indians, Chicago Cubs, NY Giants,  Cleveland Guardians,  Team USA
  • Has many other uses for conditions outside of the Chiropractic / Orthopedic realm (urology, brain injuries, cardiac issues, wound healing, plastic surgeons).
  • No X-Rays or other tests required!
  • No need for multiple visits for months on end!  Most patients complete the treatments in 6 to 10 visits.  This is determined on the first visit based on several factors.  
  • Save your body the damaged caused by taking medications long term for pain as well as the cost of endless therapies.  
  • Yes!!  The benefits are permanent.

                                       Activation of mitochondria (the powerhouse of every cell in the body) leads to better cellular health and ability to heal



                                                         New Blood Vessel Growth After Shockwave Therapy

                                     More Blood Vessels mean better blood flow, more nutrients and oxygen to the area and removal of more toxins

                                                                                           This all means healthier tissue and better overall function!

In Office Case

36 year old female came in for SoftWave therapy in October, 2023.  She injured her right shoulder in May 2022.

A MRI showed a complete tear of the supraspinatous tendon (one of the 4 rotator cuff tendons).  She had EXTREMELY

limited movement of her shoulder in all directions.  After her first visit, she had immediate relief of pain and a noticeable increase 

in movement.  As she left the office, without thinking, she reached in the back seat of her car to get her water bottle and realized that

she could move it for the first time in 17 months!  She was in tears on her 3rd visit because she could now hold a book and read to her

son and HUG him and her husband for the first time since her injury.  No surgery, injections, anesthesia or down time.  Here is her

testimony in her own words.

In Office Case

60 year old male.  Left Sacro-Iliac pain into the buttock and down the left leg for 15 years that became severely worse

for the last 7 months after falling off a ladder.  A MRI was done on December 9, 2022.  See the large disc herniation and

fragment at the posterior (back side) of L4 extending into the spinal canal compressing the descending nerves.  It is affecting

the left nerve root (cannot be seen on this view).  SoftWave treatment done the next day after the  MRI.  All pain was gone 

immediately and never returned.



Follow-up MRI with contrast done on January 6, 2023.  Notice the drastic reduction in the size of the disc fragment.  Per 

the radiologist's report, the herniation was smaller and no longer affecting the exiting nerve root.   The difference in color

is due to the contrast dye that was used.  Total # of SoftWave treatments at this point was only 5.  I suspect the fragmented

disc was reduced with the first visit.   NO SURGERY -- NO ANESTHESIA -- NO DOWN TIME -- NO SIDE EFFECTS -- NO


still no pain and doing heavy labor with no issues.


In Office Case

74 year old male.  Severe neuropathy (nerve damage) in the lower extremities.  Numb from the knees down.  Color of legs and feet

were ash gray and white.  No sensation to sharp stimulus.  Could feel dull pressure.  After his first treatment to his lower back, legs

and feet, the color returned immediately (healthy pink).  After his second visit, he could feel the pedals on his stationary bike.  

After his fourth visit, he could feel pain again.  He stated he put on an old pair of sneakers that were in bad shape and had to throw 

them away because they hurt his feet.  

     Pre        Post              

       First Visit - I decided to take a photo after I put on the gel.  You                    Immediately after the treatment.  Feet are nice and pink.

     can see the discoloration.  The photo does not show all the detail.                      



                                                         This was his fifth visit BEFORE I treated him.  Feet are nice and pink indicating great 

                                                                 circulation.  At this point he could feel sharp sensations and pain again.  

In Office Case

16 year old male.  Injured left knee playing football with severe swelling for over 4 weeks with no relief.  Two treatments 2

days apart.  Swelling and bruising down considerably (over 2 cm decrease in circumference).  Less pain and better ROM.
