Understanding the stages of your treatment plan.

Many men who are interested in acoustic wave therapy for ED often ask: ‘How long does it take for results’? Here’s a brief review.

How Long Does Wave Therapy Take?

A typical session lasts 20-25 minutes, in blocks of 2000 pulses. After 2000, the instrument shuts off, and the therapist will proceed to another area. In order to properly set off and optimize the effects of the acoustic wave therapy session, patients are advised to immediately take advantage of the treatment by having an erection soon after, including having sex.

Approximately 4-12 weeks after the therapy, patients will experience neovascularization, which includes a reinvigoration of the penile tissue, the corpora cavernosa (the arteries that feed blood to the penis), and the associated pudendal nerves.

For those with ED, the recommended treatment includes 6 treatments, one every other day for two weeks or twice a week for three weeks. For those who are looking for better performance, the treatment may be spaced farther apart.

How Long Does It Last?

Unlike Viagra and other potency drugs, acoustic wave therapy for ED provides more than a short term effect. The increase in nitric oxide produces a similar effect as PDE-5 drugs, but shock wave therapy treats the cause instead of the symptom, with results that produce healthier more responsive tissue, longer lasting erections, and markedly improved sexual performance. For some men, the effect of the treatment can last up to two years. Shock wave therapy may also prove to be the most effective ED treatment for patients with special physical conditions, such as those with diabetes and neurological complications.

While ED can be caused by a wide range of both psychological and physical causes, many of the psychological causes can be greatly improved if a patient’s mechanical performance is improved. A patient’s physical condition, including his sexual response and sustained performance, will often serve to overcome lingering psychological anxieties. Acoustic wave therapy has shown to give men greater confidence in their performance, which subsequently helps to improve sexual performance.

If you or a loved one is suffering from the effects of ED, it’s important to face the problem directly and to overcome the emotional hurdles commonly associated with seeking treatment for ED problems. Find the right time to discuss ED problems with your sexual partner seek counseling and consult specialists who can offer a wide range of ED treatment options, including acoustic wave therapy for ED.
