Pelvic pain syndrome, Peyronie’s disease and erectile dysfunction problems are effectively treated with shockwave therapys.
The goal of this painless procedure – which can be repeated any time – is to treat chronic pelvic pain syndrome, erectile dysfunction problems and Peyronie’s disease.
The procedure provides causative, not symptomatic treatment. Shockwaves trigger positive biochemical changes in the body. Electromagnetically generated focused pulses induce angiogenesis in the treated area, which helps the regeneration of tissues through improved nutrient and oxygen supply, and its effect on the nerve fibres relieves pain.
In cases of erectile dysfunction, low intensity shockwave therapy leads to improvement in sexual functions. Most erectile dysfunction problems are caused by the anatomical and functional disorders of vessels. In diabetes patients with vascular and nerve impairment this treatment considerably improves the endothelial response, which is the basis of normal erection. As a result of the treatment, erectile dysfunction drugs are no longer needed in the future in cases of mild erectile dysfunction problems. In more severe, refractory situations, when erectile dysfunction drugs are no longer effective, the treatment may also be successful in that medications may be effective again.
The most typical symptom of CPPS – chronic pelvic pain syndrome – is pain radiating from the pelvic floor to the pelvis. A functional disorder of pelvic organs may lead to urinary, defecational and sexual problems, which are often confused with other chronic diseases. Shockwave therapy may improve the functions of pelvic organs, the tone of the spasmodic pelvic muscles, and it also relieves pain by modulating pelvic nerves. Functional parameters, for example urinary complaints improve, which also improves the patient’s quality of life.
Peyronie’s disease is a progressive illness most often caused by the appearance of smaller or bigger nodes in the back of the penis. As the disease progresses, pain may occur, and the disease may also lead to erection disorders, and a curved deformity of the penis that might interfere with sexual life. There is no effective medication for the acute phase of the disease, but this procedure is able to stabilise the abnormal curve that has already occurred – i.e disease progression is halted – and it also has a significant pain relieving effect. Treatments help soften the plaques, and this improves erection quality.
The therapy package contains 8 to 10 appointments with 15 to 20 minute-long treatments at each visit.
