How It Works | Shockwave Therapy for E.D.

Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a safe and non-invasive procedure used to treat the underlying causes of ED. It uses low intensity, high frequency sound waves to target areas of damaged tissue in the penis, stimulating blood flow and promoting natural healing. This treatment has been found to be effective in certain types of ED such as arterial insufficiency when blood flow is limited.

During the procedure, a specialized device is used to comfortably direct sound waves into the penis, which then causes micro-trauma in the tissue and triggers a healing response. Shockwave therapy for ED is believed to increase blood flow to the penis by stimulating vasodilation and improving nerve function. This increased blood flow can help improve symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, weak erections, and poor sensation.

Shockwave Therapy for E.D. Research has shown that shockwave therapy for ED can improve overall sexual function in men with ED who do not respond to other treatments. In addition to improving erectile function, research has also demonstrated that shockwave therapy can help reduce inflammation and relieve pain caused by conditions such as Peyronie’s disease.

This non-invasive treatment is typically done as an outpatient procedure that takes less than 30 minutes to complete. Generally, a series of three to five treatments are needed for optimal results. The effects of shockwave therapy for ED may be noticed shortly after the first treatment but continue to build with successive treatments.

The side effects associated with shockwave therapy for ED are minimal and generally include mild discomfort, bruising, swelling, and redness at the treatment site. However, these side effects typically resolve within a few days of the procedure. Additionally, post-treatment sexual activity is typically avoided for 1-2 days following each session.

Shockwave therapy for ED is a safe and effective treatment option for ED. It has been found to improve erectile function, increase sexual desire, reduce pain associated with Peyronie’s disease, and improve overall sexual health. If you are considering shockwave therapy for ED, it is important to discuss your options with an experienced physician who can help determine if this treatment is right for you. With the proper care and treatment, shockwave therapy can be an effective way to improve your erectile function and overall sexual health.
