Now a treatment for your injury is available that doesn’t involve painful surgery: Pressure Wave/Shockwave technology. Dr. Dennis L. Streeter, a board-certified surgeon in Merrillville, Indiana, uses this new technique to help heal you in record time.

Medical Wave Q & A

What is pressure wave therapy and how does it work?

Pressure wave therapy uses high-energy sound waves on painful parts of your body. Dr. Streeter uses a patented device that delivers pulses of energy to the painful area. The pulses create and then burst bubbles within the soft tissue.

That reaction stimulates the cells in your body responsible for healing connective tissue. Your cells respond by loosening tight, knotted tissue from the treatment area. The treatment also enhances blood circulation and helps renew damaged tissue.

What conditions does medical wave treatment improve?

Pressure wave — also called medical wave — technology treats a variety of soft tissue problems like overuse injuries in athletes or injuries from accidents. The technology activates healing in damaged muscle and connective tissue.

Medical wave treatment can be used to treat your:

  • Back
  • Neck
  • Forearm, wrist, and hand
  • Hamstring
  • Foot
  • Knee
  • Shoulder
  • Toe
  • Elbow
  • Heel

Medical wave is recognized as a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) that doesn’t require injections, surgery, or long-term medication use to see results.

How does medical wave help erectile dysfunction?

When medical wave is applied to the genital area, it stimulates a process called neovascularization — the growth of new blood vessels. Blood supply is critical to obtaining firm, lasting erections for sexual intercourse.

As a natural treatment for ED, medical wave addresses blood flow issues to the penis to provide long-lasting relief from ED symptoms. This means that you can get and maintain erections on your own without a pill or surgery that can have unwanted side effects.

What are the benefits of pressure wave treatment versus traditional treatment with surgery or other therapies?

There are many benefits to pressure wave treatment:

  • 91% success rate (from clinical studies)
  • Noninvasive
  • No anesthesia required
  • No risk of infection
  • No scarring
  • No downtime
  • Over 80% patient satisfaction
  • Cost effective
  • Faster, easier healing
  • Improved microcirculation
  • Improved metabolic activity
  • Relaxing of damaged muscles and connective tissue

 

How many treatments are needed to see a reduction in pain and better mobility?  

You should see beneficial effects after only one or two pressure wave treatments. There is no downtime. This treatment helps restore mobility and function, which improves your quality of life.
