27 Apr What is Shockwave Therapy? Can It Help With My ED?
For most men, nothing can be as frustrating as struggling with bouts of erectile dysfunction, or ED. This is particularly true if you deal with long-term issues with erectile dysfunction. This condition is classified as an issue where a man cannot get or maintain an erection.
While erectile dysfunction can be quite frustrating, scientific advancements are finding new ways to possibly treat this condition. One of the most promising of these treatments is known as shockwave therapy. This condition is thought to help with erectile dysfunction because it can help stimulate blood supply to the penis and inadequate blood supply is a common underlying cause of ED.
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can work to help restore normal penis function in men who struggle with ED. This treatment is relatively new and has grown in popularity over the past few years.
This therapy works by applying low-intensity shock waves to the penis. These low-intensity shock waves will help stimulate blood supply to the area so that the man will be able to get enough blood to the area in order to get and maintain an erection.
What to Expect With Shockwave Therapy
While shockwave therapy sounds rather intense, it is actually quite a comfortable procedure and one that doesn’t require any anesthesia. The therapy does not hurt but may result in a slight tingling sensation in the area. Typically, treatments last between 15-20 minutes and most men will need multiple treatments in order to get the results that they want.
The energy delivered to the penis during the treatment will stimulate new blood vessel growth. While this treatment is still relatively new, research is finding that the treatment is effective in delivering results with a low risk of side effects.
