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.
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.
