Regenerative Shockwave Therapy

We’re proud to provide SoftWave™ shockwave treatments (SWT) for our patients at The Stem Cell Doctors of Beverly Hills. The TRT/MTS SoftWave machine is the most effective shockwave machine available and has been used for most of the studies showing the efficacy of the technology. Learn more about how the treatments work, and contact us to determine whether you’re a qualified candidate.

New advances in regenerative technology allow for fast and long-lasting healing and pain relief… without the need for invasive surgery. An immense advance in regenerative therapy is the discovery that low intensity acoustic shockwaves can stimulate stem cells to divide and release exosomes and healing factors, which then cause pain relief, new vessel formation, regeneration of nerve fibers, and collagen production. The direct application of the pulses is used for treating a variety of medical issues from muscle and joint pain to erectile dysfunction, female genital discomfort, acute and chronic open wounds, scar tissue, and lymphedema.

How SoftWave™ Works

These acoustic waves simulate pain or injury to the body. In other words, they make your body believe that a traumatic incident has taken place, which stimulates the body’s self-healing abilities. The body’s growth factors are produced, new blood vessels are created, cell proliferation increases, nerves regenerate, and stem cells migrate to the area.  Healthy new tissue is created in place of the old, damaged tissue… resulting in ongoing relief from your chronic pain, healing of wounds, improvement in erectile dysfunction, and much more. With erectile dysfunction, new blood vessels and nerves are produced, which improves erections. New lymph channels are formed improving lymphedema. The shockwaves stimulate the stagnating healing process of chronic wounds, and heal acute wounds quicker as tissue regeneration occurs.

SoftWaves™ employs pulses of acoustic energy to treat the abnormal area. If there is no active joint or muscle pain, there is rarely discomfort. Therefore, treatment of erectile dysfunction, open wounds, scars, and most medical problems will be pain-free. If the patient has muscle or joint pain, the shockwaves help locate the source of the pain. The SoftWaves™ administrator will use some gentle pulses throughout the affected area; for healthy tissue, you won’t feel a thing. When the pulse strikes injured or unhealthy muscle or bone, there will be a ping of discomfort, but it eases during the treatment. Once this area has been identified, additional pulses to this precise spot is performed with varying intensities, thus, ensuring accuracy.

What Makes the SoftWaves Unique to Shockwave Therapy

The TRT/MTS Softwave technology uses a patented parabolic reflector that delivers unfocused shockwaves that penetrate deeper into the body and cover a wider target area than focused shockwave machines. Therefore, this technology results in no or less pain, higher efficacy, and fewer treatments than the focused shockwave machines for most conditions.  The treatments do not require anesthesia as compared to most high energy focused shockwave machines.

What to Expect from SoftWaves™

The first step in the process is meeting with a provider to ensure that you’re qualified for the procedure. Our doctors will also be glad to answer any questions you have about the treatments.

Treatment of medical issues may require multiple treatments over several months depending on the issue. These usually painless treatments follow a variety of protocols, which are evolving as more experience and research occurs.

Orthopedic treatments usually only require three treatments, each separated by a week. SoftWaves™ treatment may result in some pain or discomfort when treating an orthopedic injury, especially as the most injured area is first identified. This pain is fleeting and is actually evidence that the treatment is working as intended. Most patients report some immediate pain relief and improvement, which is a very good indicator of the ultimate success of the therapy, but not everyone does. The full benefit of the treatment won’t be apparent until the healing process is complete, which takes eight to twelve weeks. It is very important to avoid overuse shortly after SWT, because the immediate reduction of pain after SWT does not mean that the tissue has completely healed. It is expected that at least 80% of the patients become 100% pain free at 12 weeks, but this varies by the situation.


Following your treatment, it’s normal to feel a little tired. On unusual occasions, you may want to give yourself a few hours to rest and relax, so you may consider having someone drive you home. If you are being treated for an orthopedic cause, it is recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise for a few days after treatment and major competitive exercise for a month.  Whatever a doctor has prescribed in the past, such as stretching and physical therapy, should be continued. There are no restrictions when treating non-orthopedic issues. Also hydrate your body, just as you might following a massage. Avoid anti-inflammatory medicines for a few days.

You may feel a tingling sensation in the treated area, which can last a few days; this is positive, and shows that the treatment is having the intended effect.

Wait a full 12 weeks after your last treatment to evaluate outcomes as the biologic response is active during this entire 12 weeks.
