Wave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction
What is Wave Therapy?
Wave Therapy is a new, cutting-edge treatment modality allowing for strong, spontaneous, long-lasting erections without the need of pills, injections, or invasive surgery. This is a relatively painless procedure that can be done in the office in under 10-minutes. Typically, 6 total treatments are needed to achieve the desired outcome. Results can last for months to years, maximizing a man’s (and partner’s) overall sexual satisfaction. It is also cost-effective long term as alternative treatments require continuous use of somewhat costly medication.
The Wave Therapy technology has been used for over 15 years internationally to treat erectile dysfunction (ED), and is FDA-cleared for use on soft tissues. There are over 100 studies validating the positive effects of wave therapy in the medical literature. Most men experience side effects from ED medications and would prefer an actual cure of the disease instead of a band-aid to help with symptoms. Please see below for some high quality studies validating Wave Therapy as an effective cure for ED.
Wave Therapy has many other names. It can be called Low-intensity Shockwave Therapy (LIST), Low-intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (Li-ESWT), Shockwave Therapy (SWT), or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Therapy (EPAT). All names deliver the same effective ED treatment – don’t let the jargon confuse you.
What are the benefits of Wave Therapy?
- Non-invasive and SAFE
- Enhances strength of erections and overall sensation
- Improves sexual performance
- Minimize need for medication, shots, and creams for erectile dysfunction which are inconvenient and expensive
- Re-introduce spontaneity back into your love life
- Benefits are long-term
How does Wave Therapy Work?
Wave therapy uses non-invasive, high-frequency acoustic sound waves directed at the penile tissues and nerve bundles. This technology treats the cause of ED, which usually involves decreased blood flow due to plaque buildup and inflammation.
Wave therapy is unique in that it treats the actual problem at the cellular level by promoting new blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) and breaking up micro-plaque. Compare this to medication and injections, which can lose their effectiveness over time and only mask the symptoms of ED instead of treating the actual cause.
