How Can Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease Be Treated with Soundwave Therapy?
Officially called low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT), it involves a non-invasive, low-intensity sound wave passing through erectile tissue. This helps restore the natural erectile function of the penis.
Shockwave therapy does so by clearing out the plaque blocking blood arteries in the penis. All the while, it also encourages the growth of newer blood vessels.
What’s the Difference between Soundwave Therapy and Shockwave Therapy?
Soundwave Therapy, Shockwave Therapy, and Acoustic Therapy are all the same type of therapy and their names can be used interchangeably.
What Are the Benefits of Soundwave Therapy?
Here are some of the benefits patients may expect after undergoing soundwave therapy:
- Improved sensitivity
- Stronger erections
- Increased stamina
- Relief from Peyronie’s disease symptoms
- Quicker recovery after sexual orgasms
- Boost in confidence
- No need for injections or medications
Soundwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment which aims to help men maintain their sexual health. Routine treatments may help in the maintenance of an active sexual life, and it takes as little as under a half-hour, with no drugs or surgery involved.
Who Can Benefit from Shockwave Therapy?
Men with the following conditions can benefit from shockwave therapy:
- Men over the age of 30 with erectile dysfunction
- Men who are suffering from Peyronie’s disease
- Men looking to improve sexual performance
Shockwave therapy may be new but it is slowly becoming a revolutionary treatment for erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease. Ask your doctor or primary health care provider if shockwave therapy is the right treatment for you.
