Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction

Everything You Need to Know about Shockwave Therapy for ED

Erectile dysfunction is a very common disorder that affects roughly 30 million men in the U.S. alone. Contrary to popular belief, however, the condition is not a normal part of aging and should be treated if your problems are chronic. Erectile dysfunction can occur at any age, even wreaking havoc on the sex lives of men in their twenties and thirties who should be in the prime of their sexual function! It is important to meet with a physician to discover the cause of your erectile dysfunction and develop a treatment plan that is right for you in order to regain optimal performance in the bedroom. 

Here at Lowcountry Male, we offer a variety of methods to improve sexual health, including shockwave therapy for ED. 

What is Erectile Dysfunction? 

Erectile dysfunction is a sexual health disorder in which a man is not able to get (or keep) an erection. Some men suffering from ED may be able to obtain an erection on occasion, but are not consistently able to achieve one each time they want to engage in sex. Furthermore, some men are able to have sex initially, but the erection does not last the entirety of intercourse. 

If you experience any of these symptoms of erectile dysfunction, it is important to look into the potential causes, as well as factors that could be worsening your condition. 

Causes and Risk Factors for Developing Erectile Dysfunction 

Although aging doesn’t directly cause erectile dysfunction, you are more likely to develop the condition as you grow older due to health conditions that are more prevalent among the older generation. Certain diseases can lead to ED, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic kidney disease, and multiple sclerosis. 

Certain medications can also cause the condition such as antidepressants, blood pressure medicines, and prescription sedatives. If you are taking any of these medications and are experiencing ED, it is important to consult with a physician to develop a course of action. 

Risk factors for developing ED include smoking, drinking too much alcohol, and being overweight. Certain psychological and emotional issues can worsen the condition such as depression, anxiety, low-self esteem, and stress. What’s worse, guilt about sexual performance and fear of sexual failure can cause you to feel added pressure, further exacerbating the disorder. Therefore, since erectile dysfunction causes stress which makes the condition worse, it is important to remedy the issue as soon as you start to experience symptoms. 

How Does Shockwave Therapy for ED Work? 

Shockwave therapy can treat erectile dysfunction so you can get your pleasure and sex life back on track. Shockwave therapy is an all natural, non-invasive procedure that uses pulse waves to improve blood flow to the penis, subsequently boosting sexual performance. 

It works to remedy the condition by utilizing pulsed acoustic waves that are able to open existing blood vessels while also creating new ones. This allows better blood flow to the penis, leading to better quality erections and improved sexual function overall. 

What to Expect During Treatment and After Treatment 

Safe and drug-free, this in-office procedure does not require surgery of any kind and is completely non-invasive. It is generally well-tolerated and does not typically cause pain. 

Although results can vary based on your age and underlying medical conditions, 75% of men experience a positive response immediately after receiving the treatment. To boost your chances of experiencing favorable results, we recommend making certain lifestyle changes such as reducing alcohol intake and quitting smoking. Shockwave therapy also works seamlessly in conjunction with erectile dysfunction medications

Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

The benefits of shockwave therapy for ED will leave you feeling like a brand new man.

After treatment, you can expect to experience strengthened erections, increased circulation within the penis, and more intense sexual pleasure. The procedure can even lead to a possible increase in girth size, as well as decreased recovery time between orgasms. With these incredible benefits, you will feel confident that you will be able to provide a satisfying sexual experience for your partner while improving your own pleasure.

Best of all, shockwave therapy can also successfully treat a number of other health concerns. Peyronie’s Disease, a condition that leads to a curvature in the shape of the penis and extremely painful erections, can be effectively treated with this form of therapy. Studies have shown that the procedure is able to reduce pain caused by Peyronie’s, as well as relieve other symptoms associated with the disease. 

In addition, shockwave therapy for ED can repair damage from diabetes and help to regain sexual function after prostate cancer surgery.
