Dr. Jeffrey Melby

Meet Dr. Jeffrey Melby

When he was just two years old, Dr. Melby had an accident on a playground. A backward fall from a slide led to numbness in his legs and bed-wetting. Concerned, his parents took him to a chiropractor. The great results actually inspired Dr. Melby’s father to become the first chiropractor of the family in 1985.

Dr. Melby did his undergraduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside as well as Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois. He went on to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

Dr. Melby has been in Champaign-Urbana since 2004. It has been the perfect community to establish his practice. He loves serving the families of this community.

In his spare time, Dr. Melby does CrossFit, cheers for the Green Bay Packers, watches local music concerts, and eats sushi. His new passion is golf, though Dr. Melby readily admits that he’s not very good.

SoftWave FAQs

  • What results should I expect from SoftWave Therapy?

    If you are a candidate for treatment, SoftWave therapy can provide both immediate and long-lasting results. After one SoftWave session, patients typically experience a 20-50% reduction in pain and improvement in mobility, lasting from a few hours to several days. Some patients require multiple sessions before experiencing improvement.

    To determine if SoftWave is a suitable treatment for you, schedule a $69 New Patient Appointment, where you will receive one SoftWave treatment session, and the provider will assess whether further treatment is appropriate.

    Unlike pain medications and injections, SoftWave treatment seeks to activate the body’s natural healing process at the cellular level to deliver genuine and long-lasting results.

  • What is the SoftWave treatment process like?

    SoftWave is a fast and convenient non-invasive procedure that usually lasts 10-15 minutes, with no downtime required for recovery. First, ultrasound gel is applied, then the SoftWave device is gently placed to deliver shock waves to the injured area. Most patients feel a gentle tapping or pulsing sensation, while some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort. The use of anesthesia or numbing agents is not necessary. Effective communication with the provider during treatment can help identify treatment hotspots and track progress.

    Is SoftWave therapy safe after surgery?

Some doctors even use SoftWave in the operating room immediately after surgery, to activate the body’s healing process.

  • Does SoftWave therapy have side effects?

    Side effects from SoftWave therapy are minimal and non-restrictive. SoftWave does not cause bruising or swelling, although some patients may experience slight redness and soreness that typically subsides within one to two days. While recovery downtime is not usually needed, we recommend avoiding high-impact movements or exercise for the first 24-48 hours.
