Shockwave Therapy to Treat Acute Injuries and Sexual Wellness

How does Shockwave Therapy work?

To treat musculoskeletal injuries or other areas, shockwave therapy promotes increased blood flow by breaking up adhesions in the tissues. The disruption of calcified deposits and other blockages allows for more movement in areas of the body that have become tight or “stuck,” as we see in frozen shoulder, plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, bursitis, tennis elbow, and more.

Increased blood flow helps greatly to relieve pain from acute and chronic injuries.

Shockwave Therapy for Sexual Wellness & Bladder Leakage

In addition, other areas benefit from better blood flow including sensitive areas such as the penis and pelvis. Improved blood flow to the penis (erectile dysfunction) can result in larger and longer erections. Too, the increased blood flow can help with stress urinary incontinence (bladder leakage), as well as to break up adhesions that may be causing pelvic pain.

Best candidates for ED treatment are those with mild erectile dysfunction, and who are not responding to medications or prefer not to take them, and are interested in trying regenerative therapies.

The Benefits of Shockwave for Erectile Dysfunction:

Acoustic Wave Therapy is popular because it is non-invasive, with no needles or medications. It is safe, and utilizes FDA-cleared technology that has been used in Europe for more than a decade. There are several research studies showing that sound waves are part of the future of ED therapy. Patients have reported a host of beneficial effects, including:
·         Enhanced sexual performance
·         Erections that occur more spontaneously
·         Harder, stronger erections
·         Better orgasm and general satisfaction
·         Heightened stimulation

Shockwave Therapy, also known as acoustic wave therapy, is not as scary as it sounds. You can read more about how it works, its benefits, and what to expect on our blog.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is shockwave therapy?

Shockwave Therapy, also known as Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT), sends pressure waves to tissues through a series of pulses. The pressure waves help boost collagen production and relax stiff connective-tissue fibers.

What does shockwave therapy look like?

A small wand-like device uses targeted sound waves to stimulate tissues and blood vessels.

Does shockwave therapy hurt?

There can be some discomfort initially with shockwave treatment, but there is also a numbing effect as an area is treated. Numbing cream can be used to lessen the discomfort.

What is shockwave therapy used for?
Shockwave Therapy can be used for a variety of issues:
  • Cellulite
  • Treat urinary incontinence / leakage
  • Promote smoother results after liposuction or other procedures.
  • Treat female sexual arousal disorder
  • Erectile Dysfunction
What are some benefits to shockwave therapy?
  • Non-surgical, non-invasive treatment and doesn’t require any downtime.
  • Typically pain-free, and can be adjusted if you feel uncomfortable.
  • Quick. Each sessions lasts roughly 30 minutes.
  • Results may last up to a year.
How does shockwave therapy help with Erectile Dysfunction?

Shockwave, through the sound wave pulses stimulate penile tissue and encourage blood flow, which can also speed up the healing process. Shockwaves have also been shown to grow new blood vessels, thereby improving blood flow in the penis, which is essential for erections.

What is shockwave therapy for urinary incontinence/bladder leakage?

Shockwave therapy works as an urinary incontinence / leakage treatment by decreasing bladder overactivity, eliminating urinary incontinence, and improving stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms.

Does shockwave therapy help with cellulite?

In a 2019 shockwave cellulite study, researchers found a significant reduction in cellulite in both the buttocks and posterior thighs even three months after the treatments.

How does shockwave therapy help with cellulite?

1. weakens fibrous tissues right under the surface of the skin
2. reduces swelling caused by poor lymph fluid flow throughout the skin
3. May stimulate stem cells found in fat tissue to regenerate healthier, more youthful skin
4. improves blood circulation to support new, healthier cells.

How effective is shockwave therapy?

Numerous studies show that acoustic shockwaves provided significant effects on the biological tissue, which led to the “restructuring of skin properties and subcutaneous tissue,” thus improving the aspects of cellulite and localized tissue.
