Shockwave Therapy

What is Shockwave Therapy?

One of the most innovative methods for treating erectile dysfunction (ED) now being used is shockwave therapy. Shockwave treatment stimulates blood flow to the injured area by sending brief energy pulses that move faster than sound. The process of neovascularization is how these energy bursts produce fresh blood vessels. No surgery, no pumps, and no needles.

For an erection to form and stay in place, blood flow is essential. When you have a healthy erection, the blood arteries that supply blood flow to your penis dilate, expand 2.5 times their regular diameter, and fill with blood. The blood arteries have stiffened and lost their capacity to expand when you have erectile dysfunction. They work like a constricted pipe, with some flow but insufficient pressure to elicit an erection.

Since 2009, it has been demonstrated that treating erectile dysfunction and promoting blood flow to the penis may both be accomplished with the use of low-intensity focused shockwaves.

Radial Wave Therapy vs. Shockwave Therapy

It’s critical to separate shockwave therapy from radial wave therapy, which is often marketed as a noninvasive treatment for erectile dysfunction available in both medical and non-medical settings. Here are some important distinctions:

Shockwave treatment

  • Data suggests that it can increase blood flow and possibly aid in the formation of new blood vessels.
  • This treatment must be administered by a licensed medical expert with professional training.
  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet approved it for use in treating erectile dysfunction.

Radiation therapy

  • There is no evidence to back up claims that it can treat erectile dysfunction.
  • Because it is a Class I medical device, it is not regulated by the FDA.
  • This treatment does not require a medical licence or professional expertise to be administered.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy treatments for erectile dysfunction are offered at Associated Urological Specialists. These treatments are an efficient and noninvasive method for treating ED safely and restoring natural functionality. Shockwave treatment for erectile dysfunction has a number of benefits, including the following:

  • Directly targets the mechanism responsible for erections
  • Long lasting results
  • Noninvasive
  • No surgery
  • No needles, no pumps
  • Drug-free
  • Cost-effective
  • Restores sexual function
  • Improves firmness and rigidness of erections
  • Pain-free
  • Quick treatment

Is Shockwave Therapy Painful?

In general, shockwave treatment is a non-invasive process that does not result in any discomfort and does not cause any pain. During the erectile dysfunction shockwave therapy treatment that you are receiving, you should anticipate feeling some light pressure as well as hearing some loud clicks emanating from the device.

What if I Have Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, or Other Medical Conditions?

It is common for erectile dysfunction in men to be caused by a variety of medical illnesses, such as diabetes or other vascular disorders; nevertheless, the presence of these conditions does not affect a man’s ability to undergo therapy for erectile dysfunction. Shockwaves have the opposite effect of vascular illnesses in that they cause blood vessels to open and operate normally. Vascular diseases cause blood vessels to close down. Shockwave treatment is the method that will most effectively improve your blood flow if you have a previous history of the issues listed above.

Will Shockwave Work Even if the ED Pills Stopped Working?

Shockwave therapy is a type of regenerative treatment that, once the plaque has been removed, develops new channels for blood flow. In most cases, the reason the ED drugs quit functioning is because the blood vessels in your body have stiffened and contracted. At this time, the strength of the ED tablets is no longer sufficient to prevent the closure from occurring. We provide the possibility of reversing such closure and restoring you to normal erectile function without the use of any drugs to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) that are prescribed by your doctor by activating the body with shockwaves.

Is There Any Downtime After Shockwave Therapy?

Shockwave therapy is one of the few treatment methods that has very few drawbacks and does not require a lengthy period of recovery time like some of the other treatment alternatives. Immediately after the completion of the therapy, patients are allowed to resume their normal activities, including employment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Shockwave treatment is a well-liked choice, in part because there are few adverse effects associated with it. Immediately after treatment, you can notice that your skin has a small pinkish hue, that it has bruised easily, or that it has swollen. On the other hand, the risk of experiencing any adverse effects is extremely low and they pass away on their own in a relatively short amount of time.

How Long Does it Take for the Treatment to Work?

It only takes a total of six shockwave treatments for the vast majority of patients to see a reduction in the amount of scarring and a return to the penis’s original shape. The treatment’s end objective is to improve blood flow and heal any soft tissue damage that may have occurred. It may take anywhere from four to eight weeks for the consequences of this treatment to become apparent. If the patient is successful, the effects will be permanent so long as the penis is not harmed again throughout the patient’s lifespan.
