Confused by the marketing lingo?
KNOW THE FACTS
Welcome to the
Shockwave Therapy Knowledge Center
FACTS vs. GIMMICKS
As demand for Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy (LI-SWT) technology has increased, marketing experts have been divided on what terminology resonates with consumers. Many insisted that "shock wave" would turn off patients, that they would only hear “painful”. With that came a flurry of terms you may have run across in your research -- Acoustic Wave, Linear Piezo, CoreWave, GAINSwave, Soundwaves -- the list goes on! RENEWAL MEDICAL CENTERS believes our sophisticated patients are best served when they are educated and informed.
THE HYBRID DIFFERENCE
At Renewal Medical Centers we combine three different shockwave modalities to treat Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie's Disease and Chronic Pain: Radial, Unfocused and Focused. Radial energy using Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy (Li-SWT) acts on the surface and shallower structures, and focused and unfocused energy pulse waves penetrate into the deeper tissues.
By using multiple modalities we are able treat both superficial as well as deeper structures, offering the
most comprehensive and effective approach-- THE GOLD STANDARD -- in treating men's sexual health and performance and chronic pain available in North Texas.
Radial ballistic shockwaves are transmitted through pulses of energy spreading out in a radial manner acting upon the upper layers of the skin, sensory nerve fibers, the surface blood vessels and connective tissues.
The focused therapy generates shockwaves which are directed to a precise depth. The energy can be delivered to a precise point with minimal loss of effectiveness.
The unfocused therapy generates shockwaves which are less focused, targeting wider non-superficial layers offering the deepest penetration resulting in neovascularization, stem cell mobilization, and inflammation reduction.
