SoftWave Therapy

$50 Initial Scan & Treatment Special

Safe. Painless. Amazingly Effective. Messer Chiropractic Provides SoftWave Therapy!

Messer Chiropractic provides gentle, healing therapy with the aid of SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Technologies. SoftWave’s patented applicator delivers unfocused, low-intensity energy to injured soft tissues. This activates the body’s natural healing processes at the cellular level to elicit multiple health benefits, including:

  • Improved blood flow
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Enhanced tissue regeneration
  • Decreased chronic and acute pain
  • Stimulated function of existing stem cells
  • Accelerated healing from a wide variety of wounds and injuries

FDA 510(k) Cleared

The SoftWave applicator is cleared by the FDA to activate connective tissue, treat chronic diabetic foot ulcers, treat second-degree burns, and produce improved blood flow as well as temporary relief from pain.

The benefits of SoftWave therapy are far from limited to these effects, however. Medical professionals have used low-intensity shock waves to promote faster healing and regeneration for decades; SoftWave has merely perfected their application. That is why SoftWave’s applicators can be found at the world’s leading research and medical centers such as the Cleveland Clinic and Memorial Sloan Kettering, as well as several professional sports organizations including the Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Steelers.


The SoftWave applicator is non-invasive, requires no anesthesia, and causes zero adverse side effects. Treatment time is short – as is recovery time – and the results are long-lasting.

SoftWave’s innovative alternative to injection, surgery and medicine may be used to treat a wide range of conditions, including pain in the back, knees, elbows, shoulders and hamstrings, as well as discomfort resulting from foot ulcers.

My overall opinion of Softwave therapy is it changed my life! I believe without it I would of had to have disc replacement or fusion surgery. I now have more mobility in my neck and back.


I was skeptical of Softwave, but I have seen considerable improvement. I’ve been able to move from side to side much better, and my chiropractic adjustments are much easier. I’m in much less pain.


I would recommend it. I have barely any pain in my right elbow.


At first I didn’t think it would work, but it did!


It does work! Softwave has helped me in 2 areas of my body. It got rid of the sharp sciatic pain in my hip and down my right leg. Now it has helped get rid of a strong right knee pain. Hopefully I can avoid knee replacement surgery!


I have more feeling in my hands and feet. My back is doing better, neck feels looser. New itching and sensation in my face and hands.


I give Softwave 2 thumbs up. I went from hurting all day every day to almost no pain at all.


I love it. I have had substantial decrease in pain and tingling in my arms.


It was good for reducing pain, and I can now walk straight.


I don’t have pain in my hip. I can walk up steps pain free. Now I just have to strengthen my right hip which was very hard to do before. Exercise equaled pain. I would recommend Softwave to anyone with chronic pain.


It has been a simple, painless process that’s greatly reduced my pain and inflammation. I am now able to drive comfortably and play with my kids more often.


Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy is a natural, noninvasive, and detoxifying remedy. Red light therapy addresses the root causes of symptoms without accompanying pain or side effects.

When you receive red light therapy, you are exposed to LEDs which emit red and infrared wavelengths. (Although it is invisible, infrared light is perceptible as gentle heat.) These wavelengths painlessly permeate to the cellular level where they improve circulation and nutrient delivery, stimulating fat reduction and faster recovery from injury as a result. Red light therapy also helps the body produce higher concentrations of collagen and elastin – both proteins which lessen the visible effects of aging by decreasing fine lines and wrinkles in the skin.

Red and infrared light are both demonstrably effective at treating a wide range of conditions including joint, muscle and tendon pain, as well as discomfort stemming from arthritis. Both also provide numerous benefits to bone health, such as:

  • Stimulated growth
  • Reduced pain and swelling
  • Improved structure and density
  • Accelerated healing from injury
  • Enhanced biomechanical properties
  • Increased strength and resistance to fracture

Enhancing your bones’ density and capacity for regeneration is of especial importance if you are currently recovering from a fracture, or living with osteoporosis or osteopenia. And because bones progressively weaken with age, seniors stand much to gain by receiving red light therapy.

Contact Messer Chiropractic today to learn more about red light therapy: a fast, safe, easy, natural, painless, nonsurgical and affordable treatment that often produces same-day results!


So relaxing, gives you energy, and reduces pain. I love it!!


I decided to give the RLT a try because I was curious about it. I like it and would do another treatment package again.


I signed up for 12 sessions. Usually in that span I would have daily caffeine, as well as need for acetaminophen for joint pain. I have been able to come off daily caffeine and rarely have used acetaminophen for shoulder/elbow/lower back pain.


I did softwave therapy and red-light therapy together. I had less pain in my shoulder and neck. It was very relaxing, and the red lights eased my pain. I would do it again.


The differences in my blood images before and after were amazing! I have more feeling in my hands and feet.


Clothes are looser fitting. My skin looks and feels healthier. Always feel much better after the lights.


My muscles feel looser. Soreness has subsided, and overall I feel more relaxed.


I received more energy. I want one!


I did the Red-Light Therapy with the Softwave Therapy package. My left hand isn’t sore anymore, and it’s very relaxing.


I feel it has improved my blood flow which has helped with pain recovery and healing.


I have noticed more energy and am in a better mood on a regular basis. I also feel my stomach has lost inches and my skin looks better with lightened sunspots.


I feel my psoriasis on my hairline has improved and possible brown spots on hands have lightened.


Red-light is an amazing experience. Especially combined with the sound bed. You feel calmer, clear, energized, and rested.


Specific Spinal Correction

Using manual manipulation and gentle spinal mobilization techniques. Your doctor at Messer Chiropractic will use motion palpation as a way to feel your spinal joints move as you turn and bend. Also, a leg-length check may be performed to uncover an imbalance in your neck, mid back, or lower spine. If there is restriction in your spinal movement, the doctor will make a very specific correction to your spine. This will improve your spinal biomechanics, improve circulation, reduce nervous system interferences, and reduce pain.

Your doctor at Messer Chiropractic is trained in extremity adjusting as well. Extremity adjusting occurs when chiropractors adjust the joints of the body that are outside of the spinal joints. These joints include the ribs, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles, feet, and your jaw. Similar to subluxations of the spine, extremities can also suffer from misalignment. These misalignments can cause pain and limit your range of motion. Once corrected you can be pain free in your extremities again

Care for Mother-to-be

Chiropractic care is safe for both women and babies during pregnancy. Your doctor at Messer Chiropractic has been trained in a number of techniques in order to keep mom comfortable during her prenatal adjustments and provide maximum safety for pregnant women and healthier babies. During the months of pregnancy, hormones cause women’s ligaments and muscles to relax, which may cause stress on the spinal joints and compromise nerve flow. There is never a more important time to be under chiropractic care than during pregnancy. The physiological changes that are occurring in both mom and baby are incredible. It is a dynamic process during a short period of time which means you can benefit from regular spinal care, proper nutrition, and exercise. Chiropractic care allows women to be and feel their best during one of the most important times during their lives—before, during, and after pregnancy. Your doctor at Messer Chiropractic can help you remain pain-free and increase your ability to move during this time, allowing you to stay active. Research has also shown many benefits of chiropractic treatments during pregnancy, including decreased intervention during the birth process, decreased need for pain control during labor, the ability to deliver with more comfort, and decreased average length of labor.

Personal Injury Care

After an auto accident. Whiplash is often caused by rear-end accidents. Nearly 2 million Americans suffer from whiplash each year. It happens when a sudden, jolting movement of the head is sustained backward, forward, or to the side. It destabilizes the spine and can cause severe pain. It can also lead to blurred vision, headaches, dizziness, shoulder pain, reduced range of motion in the neck, arm pain, neck stiffness, and even middle back pain and pain in between the shoulders and lower back and hip pain. It is not a life-threatening injury but can lead to chronic pain and disability. Early care and treatment is very important to getting you functional fast. The sooner you are able to get evaluated and treated, the sooner you can be on the road to recovery. Even if you are in an accident that seems minor, injuries from car accidents can show up days or even weeks after the fact, so make sure to see a chiropractor at Messer Chiropractic as soon as possible.

Toxin testing and eliminations

Dr. Amanda Messer uses hair analysis to detect the presence of heavy metals. Through this painless testing procedure, she can also evaluate for normal mineral balance and glandular health. Through the ratios that this test offers, Dr. Messer is trained to determine the health of several glands and your metabolism from your hair. The hair analysis also is able to point out what is the worst problem that the body is dealing with at this time weather it is heavy metal exposure, adrenal fatigue, thyroid imbalance, or digestive disturbance.

massage therapy

We have an independent licensed massage therapist in our office. Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specified massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient’s condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion. Massage therapy can help in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments to get you feeling better faster and feeling better in between treatments with less flare-ups.

Soft tissue therapies

Your doctor at Messer Chiropractic uses many modalities to loosen up your soft tissue and get your muscles to relax including vibrational massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, guasha tool therapy, active release therapy, electric muscle therapy, arthro-stim therapy, and more.

Care for Sports Injuries

To achieve maximum performance. No matter what level you are at, a chiropractor can take care of everything from rehabilitation of an injury to helping you achieve your own personal goals. Your doctor at Messer Chiropractic treats common overuse injuries such as hip, knee, or foot injuries from running, shoulder injuries from volleyball, baseball, or tennis, even patients with concussions return to their sport faster if they have their spine evaluated and treated. Your doctor is a hands-on teacher with an in-depth knowledge of anatomy, strength, and endurance training, as well as correction of improper biomechanics through strength and conditioning.

Care for Pediatrics

To improve infant’s and children’s health. Kids are very special to us. Parents are often concerned with the question of how to keep their kids healthy when everyone around them is getting sick. We believe getting your child adjusted can get them healthier and keep them healthier. Your doctor at Messer Chiropractic is trained in pediatric care and has undergone additional education to become an expert in treating children. Our office is fun and friendly so children have no reason to fear coming to get adjusted. The nervous system is in control of the growth, repair, and function of every part of the body and it sends messages to each and every tissue and organ telling it how to work. When a child’s spine is out of alignment, it interferes with the course of these messages and the body may not appropriately respond. Your doctor is able to remove these interferences with gentle adjustments to your child’s developing spine, allowing your child’s nervous system to function at maximum capacity and respond to environmental stresses with ease.

Birth is unavoidably stressful for your little one, which alone can cause a disturbance in the nervous system. Because of this, newborns are especially susceptible to spinal misalignment and stress on the nerves. This may not be apparent initially, but if left uncorrected, it could cause problems in the years to come. If your child’s body is stressed in any way, growth and development may be altered. This can show up in many ways such as scoliosis, pain, asthma, allergies, digestive disorders, ear infections, and chronic sickness.

Chiropractic care for your children is vital to their health and an absolute necessity for their development and for actualization of their full potential in every area of life.

Nutritional plans and recommendations

Your doctor provides specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and health food choices to enhance your return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? Your doctor can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Hormone testing and restorative treatment

Dr. Amanda Messer has extensive training in the evaluation and treatment of hormone imbalances. Her drugless approach to hormone balancing is effective and life-changing. All of the symptoms of estrogen dominance, adrenal fatigue, thyroid imbalance, menopause for women, or andropause for men can be alleviated by balancing your hormone levels. To accurately test your hormones, she offers a hormone saliva test which tests 11 different hormones at 4 different times in the day and costs $375. It comes as a kit in a box that you take home to do. This may seem expensive at first, but imagine a program that allows the body to heal problems due to hormones that have dragged you down for years or problems that are accumulating or changing for the worse as you age. This is a program that does not just mask or treat the symptoms but it corrects the source of the problem.

Say Hello to Messer Chiropractic & Nutrition

The entire staff at Messer Chiropractic & Nutrition Center is here to make your experience a pleasant one. We understand that pain affects every area of a person’s life, from the physical to the mental and the spiritual. As such, we are on a mission to help you discover the power within your own body to nurture, heal, and protect your overall health. Our exceptional style of chiropractic care ensures that we use your symptoms as a starting point in the search for the underlying causes of your disease, discomfort, or pain, instead of simply treating your symptoms over and over again.

Say Goodbye to Pain

It is very common for issues that seem to be unrelated to actually stem from irregularities in the spinal column. Because individual patients respond differently to like treatments, we will avoid a one-size-fits-all schedule and will develop an individualized plan to reintroduce wellness to your life. This may include chiropractic adjustments, changes to your diet, tweaking your daily schedule, and adding corrective exercises to your routine.
Chiropractic care will introduce life-changing benefits to patients who commit themselves to the programs we develop for them, including: long term relief from headaches and migraines, liberation from neck and back pain, reduction of muscle stiffness, improved balance and mobility, and more. These physical improvements often lend themselves to better mental and spiritual growth.
