Scientific Evidence

for Treatment with Acoustic Sound Wave Therapy

True Freedom Therapy uses an FDA 510(k) cleared acoustic wave therapy device that has been scientifically demonstrated to rejuvenate blood vessels, capillaries, and tissue, reduce plaque buildup, and most importantly, improve blood supply to the affected areas of the body so that you can be free to enjoy all that life has to offer.

Conventional treatment methodologies such as pills and painful injections treat the symptoms, not the cause of the problem. Our SoftWave® technology returns blood flow to the affected areas by activating signaling pathways and transmitting stem cells, healing cells that reverse the condition, to the source of the problem.

At True Freedom Therapy, our treatment protocols have been thoroughly tested by research institutions from around the globe such as the Cleveland Clinic and San Diego Sexual Medicine.  Our medical device has been put through the rigors of scientific investigation and has often been subjected to randomized, double-blind , sham controlled scientific investigations – the ‘gold standard’ of scientific research.

Evidence for the Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction

Does low intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy have a physiological effect on erectile function? Short-term results of a randomized, double-blind, sham controlled study

This is the first randomized, double-blind, sham controlled study to our knowledge that shows that low intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy has a positive short-term clinical and physiological effect on the erectile function of men who respond to oral phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitor therapy. The feasibility and tolerability of this treatment, coupled with its potential rehabilitative characteristics, make it an attractive new therapeutic option for men with erectile dysfunction.

Evidence for the Treatment of Pelvic Floor Disorders

ESWT for Treatment of Vulvodynia: A Prospective, Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study

“61 women completed the study.  We tested for differences in the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and the Cotton-Swab Test (CST) within and between the treatment and placebo groups.  We found significant changes in the treatment group.  Reductions in VAS and CST were observed at all three follow ups.  At all assessments, pain reduction was always >30%.  There were no differences between the treatment and placebo groups before treatment but statistically significant differences at all three follow ups.  ESWT seems to reduce pain perceptions in our treatment group.  This method is easily replicable, inexpensive and without known side effects.”

Evidence for the Treatment of Peripheral Neuropathy

The Use of Shock Waves in Peripheral Nerve Regeneration: New Perspectives?

“Low-energy extracorporeal shock wave treatment (ESWT) is a relatively new therapeutic tool that is widely used for the treatment of epicondylitis and plantar fasciitis and to foster bone and wound healing. Shock waves, sonic pulses with high energy impact, are thought to induce biochemical changes within the targeted tissues through mechanotransduction. The biological effects of ESWT are manifested in improved vascularization, the local release of growth factors, and local anti-inflammatory effects, but the target cells too are influenced. ESWT appears to have differential effects on peripheral nerves and has been proved to promote axonal regeneration after axotomy.

ESWT may augment and potentiate the mechanisms described earlier in a regenerating nerve segment.  It is to be expected that ESWT will become more widely used in the treatment of injuries and pathological conditions affecting peripheral nerves.”

Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy versus Ultrasound Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis:  A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

“ESWT is superior to UST for plantar fasciitis as it improves pain activity and intensity, primary efficacy success rate and activity limitations.”
