Shockwave therapy is one kind of medical treatment that is around for years. It’s mostly used as non-invasive treatment for kidney stones & orthopedic injuries. Currently, urologists have started using the therapy for ED treatment.
Know the Procedure
The procedure is carried out by a specialist using a device that applies low-intensity shockwaves to targeted areas of the penis. The treatment is non-invasive and can be performed at home, with no need for an appointment or hospital stay. It requires no surgery and causes minimal discomfort.
It has been shown to improve erectile function by restoring normal blood flow within the arteries, veins and nerves in your body, which will help you, achieve greater arousal levels as well as improved ejaculation control.
How Does the Process Work?
The process begins with an ultrasound probe being inserted into the penis by a healthcare provider. This may be done through direct injection into the urethra or through an external device such as an applicator.
Next, they will move the probe along its path until they detect any abnormalities in blood flow to your penis—this could include anything from scar tissue buildup due to injury during surgery or blockages caused by plaque buildup over time—and then apply high-frequency vibrations through these areas until they find what needs treatment most urgently. Afterward, they’ll correct whatever issue was detected so that you can have normal blood flow again!
The procedure is carried out by a specialist using a device that applies low-intensity shockwaves to targeted areas of the penis. The therapy uses shock waves to stimulate blood flow and restore erectile function in men with ED. It works by stimulating nerves, releasing nitric oxide, increasing blood flow to the penile tissue and helping with erection problems caused by scarring from previous surgery or injury.
Factors Effecting Erectile Dysfunction
As men age, they become more susceptible to ED. This can be caused by many factors from genetics to lifestyle choices.
- ED is not a normal part of aging and affects millions of men worldwide each year. It can affect your sex life, relationship satisfaction, self-confidence and overall health.
- But the underlying cause of the problem is poor blood flow and the formation of micro vessels, which are tiny blood vessels that can form scar tissue and lead to erectile dysfunction.
- The problem with these vessels is that they’re fragile, so if you have atherosclerotic plaques on your wall (the artery walls), they might break down without being detected. This can happen when there’s too much cholesterol in your body or if you have an unhealthy diet with lots of fatty foods.
A healthy lifestyle will help keep this all under control by keeping your cholesterol levels low while eating healthier meals like fruits and vegetables instead of French fries
