SoftWave Therapy

TRT/MTS SoftWave Therapy is a noninvasive therapeutic device that uses a patented breakthrough method of shock-wave generation. It brings unprecedented advantages to sports and regenerative medicine. 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 reception was impeccable, professionalism at each level was top notch, Dr. May takes massively educate his patients on the Softwave technology and pays attention to details the patients have. The results I experienced just minutes after were incredibly unbelievable. Yes, I felt a whole lot better. It’s been one heck of a pain for over a decade. I will recommend them without blinking! Thank you to the entire Team.”

” What a wonderful experience! From the front line staff to the actual first discussion and explanation from Dr. May. His process explaining the procedure was insightful. He used layman’s and did a mapping of my knee to assure that procedure would benefit me. I completed the procedure and my flexibility improved 35-45%. I actually did a squat and lunges and experienced NO PAIN!!! Thanks to Dr. May and his phenomenal staff. “

“Curiosity brought me to Rittenhouse Square Chiropractic when I saw a sandwich board ad on the sidewalk. I had been experiencing excruciating shoulder pain for a few months and while accupuncture and massage gave me relief, both services lasted temporarily. Within 2 months I wound up going to the hospital’s emergency because the pain was so intense with limited ability to move my arm more than about 6 inches from my side. I figured what RHC was advertising might be a solution. I am so glad I called and made that first appointment! OMG! The staff there very welcoming and friendly. I have interacted most with Dr. May, Morgan, and Alena. SUPER professionalism and personable! On a scale of 1 to 10, my pain level was at a 10!!! I have completed 5 of 8 Softwave Therapy Technology sessions and after the first one the pain lessened significantly! It’s been 3 weeks and I’m able to raise my arm and wave it around without pain!! My pain level now teeters around a 1 or 2 every now and then but oh what a huge difference! Softwave is a miracle and I feel awesome. Everyone should try it. It definitely works…and it works quickly!”

” Softwave treatments offered here has improved my quality of life. I have been struggling with arthritis in my knees,I got significant pain relief with soft wave treatments ,and mobility in my knee has improved tremendously. The provider and all the staff are very friendly, and very flexible with schedule requests. The provider took time to offer me practical recommendations that was customized to my concerns. Great treatment and great service! “

    The TRT OrthoGold 100 SoftWave is the only Unfocused Extracorpeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) technology available, and is scientifically validated to accomplish the following:

    • Immediately shuts 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.
    • 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
    • TRT SoftWave is scientifically validated to recruit and activate endogenous stem cells production, allowing the body to truly start healing from within.

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

    We use the saying “You got to Feel It to Heal It.”

    8-12 sessions is the initial protocol for a single joint injury.

    SoftWave is Unique, Patented and Profound. The patented unfocused electro-hydraulic design of the TRT/MTS SoftWave device brings unique and profound advantages for healing and recoveries of the human body:

    • 100% non traumatic to tissue and cells
    • Near-immediate pain relief in some conditions.
    • Sustained blood flow improvement.
    • A wave delivery zone thousands of times larger than focused or planar designs.
    • Demonstrably more efficient and effective.
    • Typically, 8-12 applications or fewer needed.
    • Real-time biofeedback provides precision guidance of application to problem origin areas. No need for imaging or trigger point references.
    • Transformational vs. Incremental.
    • The only Unfocused Electrohydraulic ESWT available in North America, and it has FDA 510(k) clearance.

    Additionally, TRT/MTS SoftWave Therapy is…

    • Utilized by professional sports teams (Cleveland Indians, Brooklyn Nets, NY Giants, LA Lakers)
    • Utilized by top medical institutions (Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic)
    • Top choice of many sports legends, active and retired (See Testimonials below)
    • Has helped thousands heal and recover in record time.

    All Shock Wave Therapies are NOT Created Equal

    It’s best to refer to this device as “SoftWave Therapy” as there is much confusion regarding “Shock Wave Therapy.” There are many manufacturers that produce devices that do not actually create a “Shock Wave” yet are marketed as such. This unfortunately has created confusion in the marketplace, as well as turned off many to the technology since the mislabeled devises produce inferior results.

    SoftWave Therapy has the Science:

    Patented TRT SoftWave stands alone in the industry with quality and quantity of peer-reviewed published scientific literature validating mechanisms of action at molecular and cellular levels. All “shock wave” devices are not created equally, and one must be sure to read the scientific research applying to each specific device, if one is to gain an accurate understanding of the particular device one is seeking to learn about. Many “shock wave” distributors list studies on their websites that did not use the specific device they offer but are presented as if they did. AcoustTek only lists scientific studies that used TRT/MTS devices.

    The Best Kept Secret in Professional Sports:

    The best kept secret in professional sport! Top Sports Medicine Clinicians across the country have been quietly using SoftWave for years on injured star athletes, seeing unprecedented acceleration of recovery times. As success after success mounts, SoftWave is now becoming more widely understood to be the profound advantage that makes a tangible difference to who plays on the field and who stays in rehab.


    “Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is broadly used as a non-surgical therapy in various diseases for its pro-angiogenic and anti-inflammatory effects. ”

    “We can summarize the final effect of ESWT as a general improvement of tissue homeostasis and metabolism, accompanied by improving of the tissue self-healing abilities. Evidence from basic science and clinical studies indicates that this effect involves the ability of shock waves (SW) to support proliferation and differentiation of stem cells, which significantly contribute to tissue healing, but besides stem cells, many other cell targets, including endothelial cells, bone cells, and small unmyelinated nerve fibers, have been involved in ESWT therapeutic potential”

    “SW are biphasic high-energy acoustic waves characterized by an initial positive very rapid phase of high amplitude, followed at a distance of microseconds by a sudden phase of mild depression responsible of the biological activity on living tissues. In agreement with the definition proposed by Huang C and collaborators as a therapeutic intervention that reduce and reverse injury to damaged tissues or promote the homeostasis of healthy tissues by mechanical means at the molecular, cellular, or tissue level SW are today considered a form of mechanotherapy. As for most forms of mechanotherapy in clinical use, ESWT mainly focus on improving tissue regeneration and, consistent with this, clinical results indicates that besides reduction and/or inhibition of apoptosis, the clinical efficacy of ESWT is tightly related to its ability to improve neovascularization and matrix remodeling in tissues”

    “The body of scientific data demonstrating that ESWT can induce tissue healing and regeneration through mechano-transduction has brought to the present view of SW as immunomodulators during the wound healing process, which is also well in line with recent evidence indicating that SW influence the TLR3 pathway.”
