How Can Shockwave Therapy Be Used To Treat Erectile Dysfunction

Sad And Upset Man Waking Up erectile dysfunction

Millions of men experience erectile dysfunction (ED), which has a negative influence on their quality of life and causes them great misery. Despite the widespread use of conventional therapies like drugs and injections, interest in complementary and alternative medicine is rising. Shockwave therapy is one such technique that is gaining popularity; it is a non-invasive procedure that seeks to improve erectile function.

As such, the team at Ottawa Men’s Health Clinic would like to explore how shockwave therapy can be used to treat erectile dysfunction.

Understanding The Process

Low-intensity shock waves are applied to the penile tissue during shockwave treatment. Neovascularization, a process that includes the growth of new blood vessels, is induced by these shockwaves. By enhancing neovascularization, shockwave treatment increases blood flow to the penis and improves erectile performance.

Medical Assessment

It is crucial to have a comprehensive medical examination by a licensed healthcare provider before beginning shockwave therapy. This assessment helps identify whether you are a good candidate for the therapy and eliminates any other medical issues that could be causing your ED. In order to identify the underlying reasons for your ED, this assessment may also include more testing, a review of your medical history, and a physical exam. It’s critical to rule out any illnesses that might be causing your erectile dysfunction, such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease.

Therapy Sessions

Shockwave treatment is often given over the course of several weeks in a series of sessions. Depending on the specific protocol used by the healthcare professional and the seriousness of the ED, the precise number of sessions may change. Treatments typically take place once or twice a week, with each session lasting 15 to 20 minutes.

Positive results can occur after the first two to three sessions but staying consistent is key. Ottawa Men’s Health Clinic recommends the full six sessions to fully benefit from the treatment.

A medical expert puts a portable tool or probe to the penile tissue during a shockwave treatment session. Low-intensity shock waves are emitted by the machine, and they enter the tissues. The shaft and erectile tissue of the penis, among other parts, are the target of the shockwaves. The shockwaves’ frequency and strength are precisely adjusted to improve efficiency while preserving patient comfort. Although most people report no pain, some people may feel a slight tingling during the process.
