A brief overview of Shockwave therapy for ED as a painless drug-free treatment that is gaining increased popularity.

Shockwave therapy is a relatively painless, drug-free treatment for erectile dysfunction that is quickly gaining popularity. Also known as low-intensity shockwave therapy (LiSWT), soundwave technology has been used in orthopedics to help heal broken bones, injured ligaments, and injured tendons, is also used to improve wound healing. By targeting high-energy sound waves to damaged tissue, LiSWT has been proven to speed up tissue repair and cell growth.

Acoustic wave therapy is now being used to treat erectile dysfunction, and has seen remarkable results. Acoustic wave therapy for ED works by stimulating the corpora cavernosa (the penile arteries) and pudendal nerves. An instrument is used to apply soundwaves to stimulate a mechanical and chemical response in the body. Mechanically the soundwaves break up micro-plaque in the arteries that feed the penis. Because erectile tissue extends beyond the area of the penis, the treatment area includes the skin under the testicles and up to the perineum, except with patients who have prostate cancer. Patients report a mild tingling sensation during the procedure, with little to no side effects or recovery period.

Increased sensitivity and firmer, longer lasting erections. 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.

ED specialists use the Duolith® device by Storz Medical to apply extracorporeal shock wave treatment (ESWT). Acoustic wave therapy has been used for the treatment of vascular ED since 2010, and the effectiveness of the Duolith® device has been demonstrated in clinical studies.

The Duolith® device introduces focused shock waves within a powerful and individually selectable energy range, and is equipped with the Storz Medical cylindrical coil to deliver a consistent high energy dynamic in the entire focus zone.

Focused shock wave therapy with the DUOLITH® device is a non-drug, non-invasive, natural treatment option for men with ED problems. AUUA is currently the only practice in Arizona that employs the advanced Duolith® device by Storz Medical to treat ED.

A treatment plan of acoustic wave therapy typically involves six sessions, spaced into two weeks, with three sessions a week, or three weeks, with two sessions a week.

Key Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

Shock wave therapy provides a low-intensity, minimally invasive, painless, and drug-free treatment, and represents a real alternative to Viagra and other potency drugs. While Shock wave therapy increases nitric oxide to produce a similar effect as PDE-5 drugs, Shock wave therapy treats the cause instead of the symptom and provides more than a short term effect.

Most patients report results of healthier and more responsive tissue, with longer lasting erections and improved sexual performance. The effects of the acoustic wave therapy for ED can sometimes last up to two years. For patients with special physical conditions, including those with diabetes and neurological complications, Shock wave therapy may also become the most effective ED treatment.

These attributes make acoustic wave therapy a great natural ED treatment option.

If you are suffering from the effects of ED, it’s critically important to take action and inform yourself of the available treatment options for ED. Overcome the emotional hurdles commonly associated with seeking treatment for ED problems.
