Sound Wave Therapy Restores Erectile Function
Blood flow is critical to a man’s erections. The blood is what gives the penis the firmness needed for vaginal penetration.
When a man is sexually stimulated, arteries widen so that his penis can fill with blood, becoming erect.
A man who has problems with blood flow to the penis may have weaker erections or may be unable to have erections at all.
If you suffer from weakened erections or erectile dysfunction, Acoustic Shockwave Therapy may be a good treatment option for you!
How It Works
Officially called low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT), the procedure is more commonly known as Acoustic Shockwave Therapy.
Treatment consists of non-invasive low-intensity sound waves that pass through erectile tissue, restoring natural erectile function by clearing plaque out of blood vessels and encouraging the growth of new blood vessels.
The shockwave treatment offers a cure in that it reverses the problems that cause the dysfunction in the first place.
Clinical trials of shockwave therapy for ED have had encouraging results. The process has been well-tolerated by patients, and many men have found that their erections have improved, and they are able to have intercourse again.
If shockwave therapy alone does not cure your ED, we have several other options.
At Fountain of You MD, we recommend Acoustic Shockwave Therapy for those who have erectile dysfunction due to a lack of appropriate blood flow in their penis.
However, it can also be an effective experimental treatment for other types of erectile dysfunction disorder. Because the impact of the acoustic sound waves is minimal, men who have not experienced success with other methods of erectile dysfunction treatment may want to consider this therapy.
The Secret to Success
It is an absolutely painless procedure. A triple numbing cream is applied about an hour before the procedure. At most, you may experience a tingling sensation in the treated area.
Shockwave therapy generally consists of six treatments, two sessions a week for three weeks.
Men with more severe ED may still need to take ED medication in addition to having shockwave therapy.
