We have the expertise and specialist Shockwave Therapy technology to solve Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome at The Physiotherapy centre.

We have the expertise and  specialist Shockwave Therapy technology to solve Erectile Dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome at 3Way Healthcare.

The technology we use is from the Market Leading Swiss company STORZ MEDICAL.  All our ESWT machines are manufactured in Switzerland to stringent European and British standards.  Many other clinics use lesser Chinese manufactured ESWT machines.

Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment which utilises soundwaves transmitted to localised injured tissue to reduce pain, accelerate healing and stimulate cell regeneration.

Men’s Health Urology Conditions we can treat:

Erectile Dysfunction

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Peyronie’s Disease

Erectile Dysfunction

A study published by Kings College London (2019) estimates around 11.7 million men in the UK have experienced ED and 2.5 million have given up on sex as a result. The same study suggests 50% of men under the age of 50 are estimated to have suffered from erectile
dysfunction.

Common causes of ED:

  • Vascular (lack of blood flow) – including ageing, diabetes & hypertension
  • Psychological/emotional
  • Following prostate surgery
  • Medication/recreational drugs
  • Lack of testosterone

We have a 70% success rate using focused shockwave therapy for men suffering from vascular ED.  We also have success in men following prostatectomy. All other forms of ED will not benefit from shockwave therapy.

Focused shockwave therapy has the following effect to reverse ED:

  1. Stimulates the body to grow new blood vessels in the penis.
  2. Revitalises blood vessels that have through age become narrower.
  3. Increase in girth and length through stimulation of the corpus cavernosum – healthier and more elastic tissue creates better function.

Our Specialist Shockwave Therapist and UK Shockwave Educator, Yves De Vos, has extensive experience in treating ED through his relationship and training with VENN HEALTHCARE and STORZ MEDICAL. He also works in partnership with 5 other clinicians through ED CLINICS.

Not all shockwave therapy is the same and the shockwave device we use is a Storz Focused Device which is the only form of shockwave that is clinically proven to help with vascular ED.

Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s Disease (PD) is a disorder of the penis caused by plagues (scar tissue) resulting in painful erections and a curvature of the penis.

The exact cause for PD is unknown however studies suggest it may be caused by minor trauma to the penis resulting in bleeding and formation of scar tissue.

Some men have minimal problems in others it can cause painful erections and ED.

Focused Shockwave therapy is not able to break down scar tissue hence may not result in improving the curvature of the penis but can help with pain and erectile dysfunction.

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS) is a common genitourinary condition characterised by episodes of pain and discomfort which come and go unpredictably. It can also involve inflammation and difficulties with urinating. It is also sometimes referred to as Prostatitis.

Causes for CPPS can be musculoskeletal in nature such as tension in the pelvic muscles, fibromyalgia, inflammation of the pubic joint (symphysis pubis) or a hernia. The pain associated with this condition can degrade the quality of a man’s personal and work life and leaving him confounded and depressed.

Focused Shockwave Therapy in combination with addressing the cause of the pain through exercises or manual therapy has shown to have excellent results.

To discuss this in complete confidentiality please contact us directly or call on 0118 969 2299.

Fewer Potential Complications

No Anesthesia

Fast Treatment

Around 20 minutes per session.

Client Feedback

Jill worked so well with me and I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with her - she was excellent!

Dear 3way, I love 3way Physio! Crawled in today... practically skipped out thanks to Nikki!

Nikki, I have had a brilliant introduction to physiotherapy - found that it really works and will not be afraid of acupuncture. I recommend this practice.

...my very grateful thanks. Whilst I hope I don't have any further problems, if I do, be assured my first port of call will be 3way healthcare.

Jo's treatment has been fantastic, she has been of great help. Her friendly manner and approachability is excellent and I would definitely recommend her to anyone requiring treatment.

I would like to thank 3way healthcare for getting me over my various injuries this year so that I was fit for yesterday's London Marathon! I finished in a time of 3:08, beating my own prediction of 3:10!

Hi Jacky, I just wanted to say a very big thank you for this weekend. I don't think we would have managed it without you, your magic hands, and your bag of magic!

My course of physio at 3way helped restore full mobility to my hip after surgery - I'm back to my former, active self.

Dear Jo, Thank you for being so thoughtful, caring and supportive in helping to get me mobile again. It was your positive attitude that often got me through my 'low' times and I thank you very much.

Dear Kerry, Thank you for making me well again.  I have now been signed off as 100% fit for work. Everyone at 3way was very good to me and I do miss the treatment, but thankfully I don't need it now!

Thanks to Jacky for sorting out my hip and neck.

Thank you so so much for all your help this weekend. Your pool sessions worked a dream!... Meant I wasn't stiff at all!
