How Effective is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy?

Many solutions for erectile dysfunction require on-demand treatment. This means you need to pre-plan sexual encounters and take pills or injections beforehand. While these provide temporary relief from erectile dysfunction, more permanent solutions are still being researched and tested. One such treatment is ESWT, a form of shockwave therapy. 

Male Method offers cutting-edge treatments and medical advice for men in the Mobile, Alabama area. This includes helping those struggling with erectile dysfunction. Our team of specialists can help pin down the reason behind your ED. If your condition can be alleviated with ESWT, we are one of the few providers of this innovative therapy.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy 

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) is also known as low-intensity shockwave therapy or LiSWT. This is a form of therapy that uses sound waves to encourage healing. It has been used in many other fields, including orthopedics, sports medicine, and wound healing. This therapy is preferable to other treatments because it's noninvasive, painless, and requires no downtime. 

How it works

As mentioned above, ESWT uses shockwaves to promote healing in targeted areas. A probe is used to deliver gentle pulses of high-energy soundwaves to the penis, which encourages blood flow and speeds up tissue repair. Erectile dysfunction is caused by a lack of blood flow to the penis, and ESWT attempts to solve that problem by: 

A properly functioning circulatory system can increase blood flow to your penis and help you maintain longer, firmer erections. 

Success rates

It’s impossible to know if a treatment will work for you, but many men have found success with ESWT already. In one study, 95% of men who responded to ESWT were still happy with their results months after treatment, and no-one in the study reported any adverse side effects.

If you’re unhappy with your sex life despite oral medications, injections, and other forms of therapy, this might provide a new, effective solution to your ED. ESWT comes with no known risks, downtime, or pain. Each session lasts about 20 minutes, and you can receive sessions weekly or biweekly, depending on your condition and results. 

If you’re hesitant to opt-in for ESWT our team can go over the procedure in more detail and answer your questions during your consultation before you decide if this treatment is right for you. To schedule an appointment with Male Method, call 251-283-0330, or book a meeting online
