In the present day, Low-intensity Shock Wave Therapy (Li-SWT) has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for men with erectile dysfunction who have not responded to oral PDE5i. After 18 months, the beneficial response was still present in 50% of those surveyed, allowing them to use PDE5i successfully. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) has been extensively studied and is approved by the U. S.
UU., with virtually no side effects or risks for most patients. If traditional treatments have not healed your injury, ESWT may be a non-surgical option that allows you to return to your favorite activities with minimal downtime from work or sports. Energy-efficient ESWT has been proven to be an effective treatment for relieving pain in chronic GTPS with gluteal tendinopathy documented by magnetic resonance imaging, although its long-term effect seems to diminish over time. ESWT is an advanced treatment that uses acoustic shock waves to eliminate calcifications in soft tissue, improve collagen synthesis, release growth factors, and stimulate the body's healing process to improve pain and help you stay active.
When Li-SWT is applied to an organ, shock waves interact with target tissues and induce a cascade of biological reactions that stimulate the release of growth factors, which in turn triggers tissue neovascularization with a subsequent improvement in blood supply. Patients have described ESWT in many ways, as it can help cure a wide range of conditions. During rehabilitation, treatments must address both causes and symptoms, so it is essential to fully understand this phenomenon and make constant efforts to ensure an effective way of administering therapies that provide comprehensive and long-term treatment of spasticity. The treatment consists of four sessions over a period of 4 weeks, during each session the patient receives 5000 shock waves; 1800 are applied to the penis and 3200 to the perineum.
