Contr­­­ol Erectile Dysfunction Without Pills: Shockwave Therapy

Erectile dysfunction can cause frustration and lower your self-esteem. It may even affect how you socialize and eventually worsen the issues causing it. Although it is common to have problems with getting an erection from time to time, it doesn’t mean you have erectile dysfunction.­


So, what is erectile dysfunction?


Erectile Dysfunction


Male sexual arousal is more complex than many people think. It involves muscles, blood vessels, hormones, emotions, nerves, and the brain. When these do not communicate as they should, it results in erectile dysfunction. It is the inability to sustain a firm erection for the duration of your sexual experience. Visit a doctor for a diagnosis when it becomes an ongoing issue.




There are various kinds of treatment for erectile dysfunction. One of these is the use of pills. However, it may have side effects like headaches, digestive problems, and flushes. Those not ready to contend with these side effects can find other alternatives. One of these is shockwave therapy.


What Is Shockwave Therapy?


Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive therapy that improves wound healing. There are many causes of erectile dysfunction—physical, emotional, psychological, or a combination of these. They can cause physiological changes that result in inadequate blood supply to the penis. 


Shockwave therapy works best for people who are experiencing erectile dysfunction as a result of this. It uses sound waves to remove micro-plaque from your blood vessels. It also speeds up cell growth and tissue repair.


How Does It Work?


The technology uses a handheld probe to administer low-intensity high-energy sound waves to the penis. The technician will first apply a gel that will conduct the sound waves. The process is not painful, so there is no need for an anesthetic. All you will feel is a tingling sensation in the treatment area.


The sound wave energy causes shock pulses that stimulate the release of growth factors. These growth factors stimulate new blood vessel growth through angiogenesis. The shock pulses also dislodge micro-plaque in the blood vessels. The whole process increases blood flow in the penis and improves erectile function.

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy


Shockwave therapy is not new but has been around for years. It helps heal broken bones, ligaments, and tendons due to its regenerative ability. There are many benefits to shockwave therapy. They include:




You do not have to undergo painful surgery that may leave you with scars and is not reversible. The only sensation is the tingling from the shock pulses.


No Downtime


You can go for the therapy and resume your daily activities immediately after. You do not have to wait for a period of healing.


Long-term Results


The procedure improves the blood flow to your penis by activating the growth of new blood vessels. It also dislodges restrictions to blood flow, reducing inflammation and other complications. Thus, the results last longer than the use of pills. 


Research shows that the results can last for up to one year. Shock wave treatment requires you to avail yourself twice weekly for three weeks. You will take a break for three weeks and resume another round afterward.
