Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT)
How Does ESWT Work?
ESWT is a non-invasive treatment option that utilizes high-energy shock waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. This therapy is used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, and more recently, has shown promising results in the treatment of ED. In the context of ED, ESWT helps to stimulate blood flow, encourage the formation of new blood vessels, and rejuvenate erectile tissues. This can lead to improved erectile function and sexual performance.
While ESWT is primarily used to treat musculoskeletal conditions, it has shown significant results in the treatment of ED. The therapy is most beneficial for those suffering from vasculogenic ED, a type of erectile dysfunction caused by blood flow issues to the penis.
The ESWT procedure for ED is straightforward and non-invasive. A healthcare provider will apply a probe to the penis, which then emits low-intensity shock waves to various parts of the penis for about 15 to 20 minutes. The procedure is painless, and no anesthesia is required. Typically, the treatment involves several sessions over a span of several weeks.
Benefits of ESWT
ESWT offers numerous benefits, particularly for men who have not responded to traditional ED treatments. These benefits include:
– Non-invasive treatment
– Painless procedure
– No need for medications or surgery
– Potential for long-lasting improvement in erectile function
– Improved sexual performance and satisfaction
After ESWT, there is typically no downtime, and you can resume daily activities immediately. Some patients may experience minor side effects such as skin redness or swelling, but these are usually temporary.
