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


Male Pelvic Health

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.

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

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.
