The treatment works by increasing blood flow to the affected area, which promotes healing and reduces inflammation. Unlike traditional treatments such as surgery or medication, pulse wave therapy has no side effects and requires no downtime.

What is Pulse Wave Therapy?

Pulse wave therapy (PWT) is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses low-intensity shockwaves to stimulate healing and improve blood flow. It is also known as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) and can treat various conditions, including musculoskeletal pain, erectile dysfunction, and chronic wounds. Pulse Wave Therapy was first developed in the 1980s to treat kidney stones. However, researchers soon discovered that it had other medical applications, including treating musculoskeletal pain. Since then, PWT has been used to treat various conditions, including plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, and rotator cuff injuries. It has also been effective in treating erectile dysfunction and chronic wounds. In recent years, PWT has gained popularity as a safe and effective alternative to surgery and medication. It is a non-invasive treatment that does not require anesthesia or downtime, making it an attractive option for patients who want to avoid the risks and complications associated with more invasive procedures.

How Does Pulse Wave Therapy Work?

Pulse wave therapy is a promising medical treatment that has the potential to revolutionize the way we treat a variety of conditions. With its proven effectiveness and minimal side effects, it will likely become an increasingly popular treatment option.

During pulse wave therapy, a handheld device delivers high-frequency sound waves to the affected body area. These sound waves create a mechanical pressure that stimulates nitric oxide production, a molecule vital to the body's natural healing processes.

Nitric oxide helps to improve blood flow by relaxing the walls of blood vessels and increasing the diameter of the vessels themselves. This increased blood flow delivers oxygen and nutrients to the affected area, promoting healing and reducing pain.

  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis

Cardiovascular Health

Pulse wave therapy can also be used to improve cardiovascular health. By delivering shock waves to the arteries, pulse wave therapy can stimulate nitric oxide production, improving blood flow and reducing blood pressure. This can lead to a reduced risk of heart attack and stroke.
