Without getting too technical, StemWave is an FDA listed medical device that utilizes harmless, yet powerful acoustic waves to activate the body’s natural healing mechanisms. This non-invasive treatment option was designed to help patients dealing with musculoskeletal conditions related to pain and inflammation.
When we are trying to identify damaged tissue or inflammation, we will move the treatment source around the injured area. When the waves from the treatment source penetrate healthy tissue, you won’t feel much of anything. However, when the waves hit damaged tissue, you will experience manageable pain or discomfort—but not of intensity that requires numbing cream or anesthetic.
When these Waves penetrate damaged tissue or areas of inflammation, they activate a natural response within the body as if a new injury has occurred. This immediately kickstarts the biological healing process by sending healing agents to help reduce inflammation and repair damaged tissue in the injured area. Ultimately, the goal of this treatment is to “awaken” dormant cells that are critical for healing—without the need for invasive procedures or medication.
Our doctor will conduct an interactive consultation to discuss more about StemWave, your goals, and expectations regarding your specific case. At the start of treatments, we utilize the device as a diagnostic tool over the area to identify the primary location(s) of pain. Once located, we focus the remainder of treatment towards that area to ensure we maximize the positive biologic effects. The treatment itself can be conducted in less than 10 minutes.
Although some patients feel immediate improvement after their first visit, this is not a “one and done” treatment solution. Subsequent treatments are required to further the healing and achieve lasting results. Based on your specific goals & expectations provided, our doctor will put together a recommended care plan that best suits your needs.
Care plans commonly range between 8-12 sessions. Patients typically experience significant progress after 3-4 treatments. However, we often see a noticeable improvement after the first treatment. Subsequent treatments that follow will offer continual improvement and sustained results.
Dr. Wray is one of the kindest most gentle chiropractors in my opinion. He has helped me tremendously after my boat injury 25 year ago and continues to be there to help me anytime I need himHe is just like my family member. I appreciate all he does to keep me and my back and neck in line.
I highly recommend Dr. Wray. He is very nice and very helpful. All my visits are on time and always make my back feel better.
Since Dr. Wray has used the StemWave on me I have less back and knee pain. Boy, that sure feels a lot better. Now I can do things I haven’t been able to do for a long time. It also has improved my thinking. I feel almost normal now. I thank God for Dr. Wray & what he has done for me.
I am a young hairstylist, pretty active. I experience tight neck, high stress, and low back pain. I started going to Dr Wray and he was my first chiropractor ever. I was really scared but in his care I quickly learned that it’s not as bad as it sounds. I always feel better after I visit him. For me it’s not one of those betters like I automatically realize it, it is something like I realize oh hey, there is an absence of pain. He is great!
I am very happy with the care that I am receiving from doctor Wray. He is very knowledgeable about chiropractic care and all of its benefits. He takes the time to discuss my care options with me at length. He is also very knowledgeable when it comes to the ZONE adjustment technique.
He is helping me. When I first saw Dr. Wray, my spine felt misplaced and on fire. I have graduated from 3 times a week to once a week. Soon I will be as close to normal as possible.
Have gone to Dr Wray for a long time. He is the only one that has been able to help and keep me lined up. Have tried others but stopped after no one else could help. With some of his new treatments this is the best i have felt in years. Thanks Dr Wray
My only regret is not calling him sooner. He has helped me feel better in less time than I anticipated. He also does zone healing, which is an incredible bonus. The staff is always pleasant and professional. Thank you for being an asset to your profession Dr Wray.
I have been going to Dr. Wray for a long long time and he is so thorough and I always get relief. He is so knowledgeable about the human body!
