Shock waves have been successfully used for the disintegration of kidney stones since 1980. But shock waves are also able to improve perfusion and stimulate vascularization. Muscles relax and pain is reduced or even eliminated.

In recent years, shock wave application has been extended to the treatment of patients suffering from what is referred to as chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) or from painful penile curvature (Peyronie's disease). In CPPS therapy, shock waves are applied to the prostate (usually the origin of the disease) by placing the applicator on the region between the scrotum and anus.

In the treatment of Peyronie's disease, the transducer generating the shock waves is placed directly on the penis.
