I am new to the clinic as a SoftWave patient. My husband began seeing Dr. Fargo as a patient and the services he was receiving ended up being vital for his health recovery. Once I learned SoftWave may help me with some chronic issues I was having, I came in for a consultation with Dr. Fargo. I have been having issues with my right knee for the last 6 years. I have tried strength training which helped improve my knee pain by 50%. When I walk upstairs, I lean on my left leg to do more of the work and after completing my SoftWave treatment I’ve noticed I have been able to use my right knee in a more balanced proportion to scale stairs and the discomfort has greatly decreased. My knee before SoftWave felt like it was loose, unstable, and leaning toward fragile, after SoftWave the right knee feels new, stronger, and tighter. As a result, I have more confidence in using it and putting pressure on it. The team at Chiropractic Health and Wellness is a well-oiled machine and are behind why I feel like in my mid 40’s I’m tapping into some of my 20-year-old energy levels. As a result of feeling how healthy my right knee is, I signed immediately back up to get this therapy on my left knee! I’m grateful this service is available and now I’ve become a chiropractic patient as well. I’m embracing speedy recoveries from things to support the physical lifestyle I have for this chapter of my work. I appreciate your team for taking care of my husband Arlen; Dr Fargo is a dear friend of his and I never would have expected I’d become a patient and we’d be on this journey together. Dr. Fargo has really revived both myself and my husband’s wellness – you have a phenomenal practice operating over there. Bravo!
SoftWave treatment surprised me and produced very positive results. The reason for saying “surprised me” is because my physical limitations are due to an accident 23 years ago.
My right shoulder/rotator cuff was still quite limited and painful. In the accident, my arm was “dragged” and stretched – luckily not torn or broken. Being right-handed amplified my desire to find an answer. After Dr. Alderman explained SoftWave treatment to me, I was intrigued and hopeful.
SoftWave still seems “odd” to me – more like having an ultrasound done – how could it help?! Well, it did. Prior to the treatment, it was too painful to cross my right arm past mid-body – affecting personal daily routines, carrying anything, even using the steering wheel. I could not raise my arm level to my shoulder – now, I raise it to the side straight up – slowly, but I can do it. Also, I could not use my hand/arm to even push a small button on an appliance or wipe a countertop. Now I can – it’s quite surprising how many things in a day where you use slight pressure – and by not using it, I became weaker….finally some muscles are waking up. It is wonderful to hold a grandchild!
After my first treatment, the immediate positive results were far greater than I could expect. Even now, after my 10 sessions have completed, my body continues to heal. Thus, the more healing, the more I can use and strengthen my muscles.
I am so thankful for the expertise of Dr. Alderman and the entire team who helped me through this fruitful experience.
“Dr. Alderman and Dr. Fargo have worked on my body for 2 years with moderate short-term effects on my shoulder pain. We seemed to always be chasing the pain around my shoulder. They suggested SoftWave therapy after years of shoulder pain, discomfort, and lack of mobility. Treatment like PT, chiropractic medicine, massage and cortisone injections helped keep my day-to-day symptoms at bay but only for short amounts of time. The SoftWave therapy showed immediate results with range of motion and pain, and it has continued to improve every day. This is the first thing I have done that has had some long-term relief. I will and have suggested the Doctors at Chiropractic Health and Wellness to anyone and specifically the SoftWave therapy treatments for anyone who has struggled with chronic soft tissue and muscle pain.”
I had my left shoulder and left upper back treated with SoftWave. Before this treatment, the pain was from a 5-year-old rotator cuff injury that the orthopedic doctor said could only be helped by surgery (which he didn’t recommend). I also saw a physical therapist. The exercises aggravated the injury and did not improve my range of motion. There were certain motions that I literally could not do. I had to be particularly careful with lifting heavy objects as this reaggravated the injury.
The injury only impacted certain motions which I could generally avoid, but I had given up on ever feeling like my shoulder would be normal again. Even after only 1 SoftWave treatment, I had an increased range of motion with less pain! It seemed like a miracle!!! After the complete series of treatments, I could use my shoulder as well as before the injury with little to no pain. It’s been 6 weeks since I finished the treatments, and my shoulder is still great! I am working on strengthening the muscles around the injury and still feel like I experienced a miracle!
