Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), also commonly referred to as Shockwave Therapy, Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT) and Extracorporeal Acoustic Wave Therapy, is an out-patient treatment used to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Shock wave can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, in particular, those involving areas where major connective tissue attaches to bone. Common sites that can been successfully treated are:
Foot - plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis
Knee - patellar tendinitis and shin pain
Elbow - tennis or golfer's elbow
Shoulder - rotator cuff tendinitis and calcific
Hip - trochanteric bursitis
Muscles - various trigger points throughout body
Shockwave Therapy for ED
Most men suffering from erectile dysfunction have vascular problems affecting the vessels that supply blood to the cavernous bodies of the penis, resulting in a decreased ability to develop and maintain an erection. The end result is an inadequate blood-flow followed by premature draining of an already reduced amount of blood from the cavernous bodies, meaning an erection is not achieved. Shockwave Therapy for ED of this type can be a highly effective treatment.
How does Shockwave Therapy differ from other ED Treatments?
Most other therapies involve the continuing use of medication, or invasive treatments such as injections and implants, whereas shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment which triggers a natural mechanism that cures vascular-related ED problems rather than just treating the symptoms.
The shockwaves are focused onto the area to be treated creating new blood vessels in penile tissue, enabling patients to achieve and maintain firm spontaneous erections.
Shock Wave for Cellulite Reduction
Shock Therapy refers to the energetic, acoustic waves which create vibrations that positively impact the underlying connective tissue, cells and ultimately, the skin itself.
The term "extracorporeal" refers to the method by which the shock waves are transmitted through the skin. In this case, the shock waves are delivered externally through a pad and into the skin.
Along with treating cellulite, the therapy will also help to stimulate collagen production, rejuvenate connective tissue, improve elasticity of the skin and give skin an overall firmer, smoother and tighter appearance.
What is really happening during the ESWT process is that shock waves cause micro tears in the connective tissues while breaking down the fatty deposits (cellulite). When the minor tearing (injury) occurs, the body automatically increases the amount of collagen to the affected area as a means of healing.
When the collagen goes to work and restores/heals tendons and tissue, the treated/injured tendons and tissue are replaced with a denser, rejuvenated frame (collagen fibers) and from there, firmer and tighter tendons and tissue. From the outside, the visible result is lifted, firmer, smoother skin.
The shock waves are transmitted via handheld treatment device which delivers a series of acoustic (similar to sound) waves directly into the deep connective tissue of the affected area. Acoustic waves generate strong, energized pulses which send vibrations directly to the skin and tissue.
By using a handheld device, "shock" (or radial/acoustic pressure) waves target enlarged fat cells and break them down.
What is shock wave? Shock Wave Benefits Technical Parameters
A shockwave is a pressure wave - any action that displaces its surrounding medium is a shockwave. The ripple created when a stone is thrown into a pond is a shockwave. The shockwaves used in equine medicine are generated in a fluid medium inside a transducer head and are then transmitted readily through skin, fat, and muscle. The high energy waves are focused within the transducer head so that the shockwave can be directed to the precise area of the injury. When shockwaves hit an area of higher acoustic impedance, such as bone, the waves slow dramatically and a large amount of energy is released into the surrounding tissue.
What signs indicate this therapy is needed?
Shock wave therapy may treat conditions such as degenerated tendons (Achilles tendonitis), heel pain (plantar fasciitis) and tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis).
How Long Does Treatment Last?
The therapy session takes about 15 minutes depending on the disorder that is treated. In general, 3-5 sessions are necessary at weekly intervals. The greatest success rate when dealing with problem areas is achieved by following a 12 week treatment program.
I have had this problem for a long time . Is shock wave too late for me ?
No! Long-term sufferers finally have a non-surgical treatment option. If you have "tried everything" don't be discouraged, this is a new weapon against your pain!
