What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is an innovative and highly effective treatment for chronic pain. Shockwave therapy uses pressure pulses, or acoustic waves, that expand in the body and stimulate blood vessel and nerve growth to help heal and regenerate tissue.
Shockwave therapy is used in orthopedics, urology, physiotherapy and sports medicine to treat a wide range of conditions.
If you’re suffering from acute or chronic pain, shockwave therapy is an ideal treatment to relieve pain, restore mobility and speed up recovery time.
Shockwave therapy provides painless and long-lasting treatment for erectile dysfunction. Applied at a low intensity to the penis, acoustic waves help increase blood flow and stimulate new blood vessels to form. 5 million British men suffer from erectile dysfunction so don’t suffer in silence.
The area to be treated is located using palpation in order to deliver the therapy precisely.
Gel is applied to the area to be treated. Use of gel is necessary to transfer the acoustic waves efficiently and smoothly.
The Shockwave applicator is slightly pushed against the area to be treated and the start button is pressed.
