    pelvic floor as they age. This can lead to incontinence of both urine and feces, especially if the man has had prostate surgery.
  • The pelvic floor muscles support the womb, the bladder, and the bowels. If the muscles are weak, these pelvic organs may lower into a woman’s vagina. Besides being extremely uncomfortable, this can also cause urinary incontinence.

It’s a noninvasive therapy that has been used in orthopedics for years to aid with the healing of wounds, broken bones, injured ligaments, and injured tendons. Erections rely on healthy blood flow. Shockwave therapy is viewed favorably as a way of repairing and strengthening blood vessels in the penis and improving blood flow.
