What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is one of the most cutting-edge techniques currently being used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). Shockwave therapy uses single pulses of energy that travel faster than the speed of sound to stimulate blood flow to the affected area. These pulses of energy create new blood vessels through a process called neovascularization. No needles, no pumps, no surgery.
Since 2009, using low-intensity focused shockwaves has been shown to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction and stimulating blood flow to the penis.
How Does It Work?
Blood flow is vital for achieving and maintaining an erection. When healthy, the blood vessels that feed blood flow to your penis dilate and expand 2.5x their normal width and fill up with blood to create an erection.
When you have erectile dysfunction, the blood vessels have weakened and hardened and lose their ability to expand. They function similar to a pinched pipe where there is some flow, but not enough pressure to create an erection. The penile erectile tissues of the penis also are compromised.
Shockwave Therapy utilizes ‘micro-trauma’ to both the tissue and the vessels in the penis. This causes stem cells to travel, generating new, healthy tissues and vessels to these targeted areas.
