Shock wave therapy is a multi-purpose treatment system used in orthopedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, urology, aesthetics, beauty and veterinary medicine.
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has been increasingly used in orthopedics and traumatology since 1991 for the treatment of musculoskeletal problems and finally for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Shock wave therapy is cheaper, more effective and easier to use than surgical treatment. Comparing with surgical treatment; It is a new treatment alternative with shorter return to work , less side effects and unwanted effects. It should be considered as an effective treatment option in many diseases, especially in patients with erectile dysfunction before surgical treatment.
After scientific reaserch and studies, low intensity shock wave therapy (ESWT) was defined and subsequently used in the treatment of diseases such as cardiac ischemia, diabetic foot, Peyronie's disease, wound healing, weight loss and erectile dysfunction (ED).
Shock waves cause mechanical stress and micro trauma when applied to an anatomical region. This mechanical stress and micro-trauma lead to the formation of angiogenic factors. Thus, it induces a series of biological reactions that increase blood flow and trigger neovascularization of tissue. It is an effective treatment method used to accelerate recovery and eliminate indications that cause acute or chronic pain without the need for invasive operations and medications.
After treatment, patients can continue their daily activities. There are no side effects. No medication or surgical intervention is required during the sessions.
