Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction in Dallas, TX
Despite being a very common condition, many men become incredibly embarrassed and frustrated by their erectile dysfunction. Some may even experience daily struggles or a diagnosis of clinical depression as a result of untreated erectile dysfunction.
Fortunately, there are many treatment options available to men with ED, including Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy.
How Does Shockwave Therapy for ED Work?
Although its title may sound a bit intimidating, shockwave therapy is actually a very simple process that focuses on improving blood flow to the penis. One major benefit that leads individuals to seek out shockwave therapy is that all treatments are completely non-invasive. Patients are expected to begin with a round of six shockwave treatments over the course of several weeks.
During these visits, Dr. Moskowitz will utilize a machine that delivers controlled, focused shockwaves to the area. These electrical impulses will encourage the growth of both existing and new blood vessels in the penis, which will help to clear away any plaque or other blockages to allow more blood to flow into the penis.
Once your session is complete, you will be able to return home and carry on with your day as usual. Patients should expect each of their shockwave therapy treatments to last approximately 30 minutes.
What Makes Shockwave Therapy an Effective Solution for Me?
A majority of erectile dysfunction cases lead back to an issue of poor circulation. This may be caused by an identified vascular condition, or the blood vessels may simply not work as well as they used to. Aging can have a hefty influence over this, because as we get older our circulatory system begins to naturally weaken as we decrease activity levels and require less and less blood flow throughout our body.
A key component to shockwave therapy is that it treats a natural condition in a way that allows for an equally natural outcome. Once treatment is complete, the goal is to get men back to enjoying firm, long-lasting erections that allow them to engage in spontaneous sexual encounters in ways that medications would not.
What are the Benefits of Shockwave Therapy for ED?
Shockwave therapy has been clinically investigated and applied in several medical fields with success.
During the treatment, a small wand device uses targeted sound waves to stimulate penile tissue and encourage blood flow. Low-intensity shockwaves help grow new blood vessels and improve blood flow in the penis, which is essential for erections.
Some benefits of shockwave therapy include:
- a more firm erection reported by men
- the creation of new blood vessels
- increased blood flow to penis
- the ability to return to work or home in 20-30 minutes
- no lengthy recovery time
- no pain
- no surgery
- no pills or devices
Why Choose Shockwave Therapy Over Other ED Treatment Options?
Many men choose shockwave therapy to get to the core of the ED problem and restore erections.
Other treatment options may help to restore erections temporarily, but they do not alter the underlying functional changes of the penis and tissue.
Other treatments are usually:
- taken on demand
- required prior to the sexual act
- limited by time to achieve a desired effect
- used only to improve a single sexual encounter
Shockwave therapy has been reported to have lasting effects for men years after treatment.
