Everything You Should Know About Shockwave Therapy

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a serious and frustrating condition that impacts many men today. In fact, it is estimated that ED impacts about 50 percent of men between the ages of 40 and 70. As this condition continues to impact many men of all different ages and backgrounds, new research continues to come out regarding different treatments that could possibly help.

One of the latest treatments that is showing promising results is known as shockwave therapy, and if you have been struggling with ED in the past—it is important to have a better understanding of this condition and what it may be able to do for you.

Shockwave therapy, or more formally known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT), is a treatment that consists of noninvasive low-intensity sound ways that pass through the erectile tissue. These sound waves can help restore natural erectile function by clearing away plaque from blood vessels. This also encourages the growth of new blood vessels, which can be instrumental in reversing the problems that cause erectile dysfunction.

The great thing about this treatment is that it promises to offer real results and doesn’t require you to take pills every day or to try to plan ahead when you may need to perform sexually. These therapies work on an as-needed basis—instead of helping to remedy the physical issue that is getting in the way of the erections. The freedom that comes with this treatment is just one of the many reasons so many men are turning to shockwave therapy. 

So, why does shockwave therapy work? Simply put, blood flow is essential for a man in order to get an erection. When a man is stimulated sexually, his arteries widen and his penis fills with blood, giving it that firmness. By clearing way plaque in the vessels, it becomes easier for blood to flow to the penis and for a man to get a normal erection.

Treatments are relatively painless and last less than a half hour. While additional research is still being done on this therapy, it has already been proven to deliver results in men who are struggling to get and maintain erections.
