How does it work?

TRT OrthoGold Softwave Therapy is the most advanced, highly effective, non-invasive treatments cleared by the FDA to treat degenerative conditions and chronic pain. This device delivers the most effective Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (“ESWT”) available. During Softwave Therapy, high energy sound waves are applied to painful and injured areas of the body to dramatically stimulate healing and regeneration. It works by helping to stimulate and improve your body’s own healing capability by enhancing blood circulation and stem cell activity to regenerate damaged tissue. Beneficial effects are often experienced in only one or two treatments! This non-surgical treatment can eliminate pain, restore mobility and significantly improve a person’s quality of life. Some of the conditions that can be treated with SoftWave Therapy are:

  • Knee Pain
  • Heel Pain

  • Hamstring Pain
  • Back and Neck Pain

  • Shoulder Pain

How are Treatments Performed?

Gel is applied to the treatment area and acoustic waves are then released over the treatment area.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

The number of treatments needed depends on the condition that is being treated. In many cases, only 3-6 treatments are needed. Each treatment session takes between 10-15 minutes.

What Types of Results Are Expected?

Beneficial effects are often experienced after only one or two treatments. Many patients report immediate pain relief after treatment. The technology has a high success rate per clinical studies. Patients treated report being pain free and/or have significant reduction in pain. SoftWave Therapy can eliminate pain, restore mobility and improve a person’s quality of life.

Top 5 Benefits Of Softwave Therapy

SoftWave Therapy is FDA approved to immediately increase blood flow and circulation.

SoftWave Therapy is FDA approved for pain treatment. The SoftWaves penetrate deep into the tissue to cut off the inflammatory response of the cells within the treatment area and reduce pain by 50% or more in the first treatment.

By reducing inflammation in the affected area, the body can restore lost range of motion after the very first treatment!

SoftWave Therapy is excellent for chronic pain and post-surgery, no matter how long ago the injury or surgery was.

SoftWave Therapy uniquely induces the migration of your body's stem cells to promote sustained healing.

Countless patients throughout the country have experienced relief from SoftWave Therapy’s non-invasive treatment!

  • Joint pain relief: Knee, shoulder, elbow, ankle & more
  • Soft tissue relief: Ligaments, muscles, tissue and more
  • Chronic pain relief: Back, nerves, discs, joints & more
  • Invasive treatment alternative: Surgery, stem cell injections, cortisone, etc.
  • Acute relief: Wounds, numbness, aches and mores


SoftWave Therapy is also a diagnostic tool because the only tissue that responds to the acoustic waves is damaged or inflamed tissue. So there will be pain for the patient when we are in the right spot. The pain is tolerable and will go away as the treatment progresses. This is an indication that the treatment is working and the healing process has begun. Most people describe it as a pain that “hurts so good” and is followed by immediate relief.

The typical course of treatment is between 15 and 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Treatments are typically received once a week. Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis.

This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. The typical treatment protocol is three to six treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis or neuropathy may require additional or ongoing periodic care to control pain.

Most people experience immediate pain relief following the first treatment. However, to receive the full benefit you may need to complete a series of 3 to 6 treatments. Not everyone responds to therapy and results cannot be guaranteed.

Yes, SoftWave Therapy is sometimes even more effective when combined with other forms of therapy, including physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, soft tissue mobilization, electrotherapy, assisted stretching, PRP, stem cell and exosome injections, and following surgery.

Yes, SoftWave Therapy is FDA cleared for pain reduction, increasing blood flow and circulation, activating connective tissue, treating burn wounds and diabetic foot ulcers.

The technician will be able to provide pricing after they have a chance to thoroughly review your specific condition and create a customized treatment plan. Typically, treatments cost between $200-$400.

SoftWave Therapy is not yet covered by insurance companies. Although it is currently going through the insurance approval process, it will likely be several more years before it is a covered treatment.

Yes, and more specifically it needs to be a prescription to “evaluate and treat with SoftWave Therapy,” on an Rx note like you would get for a pharmaceutical prescription.

SoftWave Therapy can help people suffering from neck and back pain, arthritis, shoulder tendinopathies, bone on bone discomfort (knees, shoulders, hips, discs), tennis elbow/golfers elbow (epicondylitis), heal spurs/plantar fasciitis, muscular trigger points, fractures, neuropathies, patellar syndrome, ulnar nerve/carpal tunnel syndrome, biceps tendinopathies, and more.

Although no results can be guaranteed, for most conditions, the results of SoftWave Therapy are permanent. This is possible because of the stem cells in your body that are induced by the treatment migrate to the inflamed or otherwise damaged area. The stem cells heal the damaged tissue permanently.
