Shock Wave Therapy for Mens’ Health

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy, also known as wave therapy, is a non-invasive ED treatment that involves using special low energy acoustic waves on targeted areas. The shockwaves cause inflammation and increase blood flow to the affected area and encourage tissues in the area to heal.

How does shockwave therapy work?

During wave therapy, pulsating acoustic waves trigger a healing response in dormant stem cells and growth factors in the penis. When growth factors are released, new blood vessels form, and damaged erectile tissues are healed.

In addition, shockwave therapy can promote the growth of nerve tissues in the penis, resulting in increased blood flow and heightened sensations. This gentle rejuvenation of erectile tissue and nerves is what shockwave therapy is all about, and why this breakthrough treatment has proven to be so effective for ED and Peyronie’s Disease.

What is the shockwave therapy procedure like?

During the initial shockwave therapy treatment, a numbing cream is applied to the penis. Then, one of the men’s health specialists uses a probe coated in ultrasound gel to target different areas of the penis with the shockwaves.

How long does shockwave therapy take?

Shockwave therapy is a quick, pain-free procedure, and generally takes 20 minutes to complete. Treatment typically involves a course of three procedures, 1-2 weeks apart. However, depending on the severity of the patient’s disorder, total healing in the area could take up to one year of treatment. Once results are achieved, the effects of wave therapy can last for up to two years.

What can a patient expect after shockwave therapy?

Wave therapy is virtually pain-free and you will be able to drive yourself home after the procedure. Some men might experience temporary tingling, soreness, tenderness, or swelling in the area for a few days after treatment. This is expected, as shockwaves stimulate inflammation in the targeted area, and these side effects are the result of the body naturally healing itself. Again, these side effects should only last a couple of days.

Does shockwave therapy work for PD?

Both ED and PD can cause depression, lack of confidence, and other issues, but shockwave therapy can reverse the symptoms of these disorders and allow for stronger, more sustainable erections without any pain. Wave therapy has little to no side effects, allows for almost immediate resumption of normal activities after the procedure, and many men experience positive results immediately after treatment.

What are the benefits of wave therapy for PD and ED?

Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is a fast, effective treatment for erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease. Some of the benefits of wave therapy include:

  1. Stronger Erections – increased blood flow and circulation to the treated area results in firmer, long-lasting erections.
  2. Softened Plaques – ultrasound waves are aimed to soften and break the plaques within the penis and eliminate the curvature to allow for painless erections and a better shape of the penis.
  3. Heightened Sensation – repaired erectile tissues and nerve endings in the penis can result in more powerful sexual sensations.
  4. Enhanced Stamina – results vary from patient to patient, but most men notice a significant increase in sexual performance post-treatment.
  5. Minimal Side Effects – most patients experience no side effects, while others only experience mild tingling, numbing, tenderness, and swelling for a few days after treatment.

Should I get shockwave therapy?

Don’t resign yourself to a lifetime of erectile dysfunction or PD. Wave therapy can reverse the symptoms of your disorder, give you back your ability to achieve and maintain a strong, satisfying erection, and allow you to reconnect and enjoy your time with your partner in the bedroom.
