Reduce Pain. Improve Sexual Health. Understanding the Many Benefits of Sound Wave Therapy
Since the mid-90s, Shockwave Therapy (SWT), also known as Sound Wave Therapy, has effectively treated various chronic conditions. People love SWT due to the immediate relief they receive following treatment. In the past, SWT was used to treat musculoskeletal conditions, but it has gained mainstream popularity recently due to its expanded uses, including improving sexual function. In this blog, we will explain how SWT works, its benefits, and the different conditions that it is being used to treat.
What is Sound Wave Therapy (SWT)?
SWT is a non-invasive treatment that addresses a wide range of chronic conditions. The quick in-office treatment delivers short-duration high-energy pulses to targeted areas of the body. The delivery of high-energy acoustic sound stimulates the repair of tissues by increasing cell permeability and improving circulation. The treatment also helps break down calcific deposits and stimulates the production of osteoblasts.

There are many reported benefits to receiving SWT. Some of the main benefits include:
- Breaks down calcium deposits
