Shockwave Therapy for ED


Shockwave Therapy for ED

Blood flow is critical to a man’s erections. When a man is sexually stimulated, arteries widen so that his penis can fill with blood. The blood is what gives the penis the firmness needed for vaginal penetration.

A man who has problems with blood flow to the penis may have weaker erections or may be unable to have erections at all.

Shockwave therapy has been used to treat patients with cardiovascular and kidney conditions, as well as address joint inflammation and fractures. Recently, scientists have investigated low-intensity shockwave therapy to help men with erectile dysfunction (ED).

This non-invasive procedure uses pulse waves to improve blood flow to the penis and to boost sexual performance. Dr. Truong is also one of the few on the East Coast who uses the newer technology of focus shock waves to treat ED and pain.

To learn more about Shockwave Therapy for ED, Fredericksburg, VA has a specialist to provide some answers. Speak with Dr. Truong at Truong Rehabilitation Center today by contacting us here.

What is Shockwave Therapy and How Might it Help Men with Erectile Dysfunction?

Shockwave therapy uses energy from acoustic waves to trigger a process called neovascularization in certain parts of the body. When neovascularization occurs, new blood vessels form, helping to improve blood flow to the region.

The sound waves can treat ED by repairing aged blood vessels, stimulating the growth of new blood vessels, and removing decades of micro-plaque. This increases blood flow to the penis.

How Else Does Shockwave Therapy for ED Help You?

ED can be caused by Peyronie’s disease. The mildly pulsating waves of shockwave therapy can reduce pain and scar tissue size in Peyronie’s disease, decreasing curvature and increasing libido, erectile function, and sexual satisfaction.

Focus Shock Waves vs. Radial Pressure Waves

Traditional shockwave devices deliver radial pressure waves. At Truong Rehabilitation Center, we use a CuraMedix machine to deliver more efficient and powerful focus shock waves.

Both types of extracorporeal shock wave therapy are effective, non-invasive treatments. But while higher-energy radial waves affect tissues, lower-energy focus shock waves affect individual cells. Specifically, low-energy shockwaves are used for cell regeneration and pain therapy.

Focus energy penetrates more deeply into your tissues, while radial waves are most effective on the skin’s surface. The shorter wavelengths of focus shock waves also allow the waves to be used for more targeted treatments.

Shockwave Therapy vs Traditional ED Treatments

There are several types of treatments available to men with ED, including pills, vacuum erection devices, and penile injections. However, these therapies are typically conducted on an as-needed basis and may work for only one sexual encounter at a time.

Shockwave therapy is different, as it targets the erectile mechanism so that men are more likely to have erections on their own.

Benefits of Using Shockwave Therapy for ED

This safe and effective treatment for ED provides long-lasting results, and is:

  • drug-free
  • surgery-free
  • totally non-invasive
  • performed in-office

Results of clinical trials of shockwave therapy for ED are encouraging. The process has been well tolerated by patients, and many men have found that their erections have improved and that they can have intercourse.

How is Shockwave Therapy Performed?

Arrive at Truong Rehabilitation Center 30 minutes before your initial treatment for the application of numbing cream.

To administer the focus energy, a clinician applies a probe to the penis, which is coated with a special gel. Different areas of the penis are usually targeted.

Men usually don’t need anesthesia or experience pain, although they might have a tingling sensation in the treated area.

The procedure will take about 15-30 minutes to complete. You will need 6 sessions. Insurance does not cover this.

Shockwave Therapy Results

About 99% of patients notice positive results after one to three weeks. The effect will last about 2-3 years depending on the severity of your ED that was treated, as well as the presence of preexisting conditions like diabetes. We also recommend annual maintenance treatments to continue top optimal performance.

Multiple clinical research studies verify the effectiveness of Shock Wave Treatment:
