They talk about little blue pills, ancient secrets, and even obscure plants that can address erectile dysfunction. Some brag about price, others about effectiveness. There is a reason; however, more and more men are exploring acoustic shockwave therapy to address their erectile dysfunction issues. To better understand why acoustic shockwave therapy is growing in popularity, one should first have a better understanding of erectile dysfunction and its causes.

What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

Once commonly referred to as impotence, E.D., or erectile dysfunction, occurs when a male can’t achieve or maintain an erection for intercourse. Erectile dysfunction can be psychological or physical. It can be caused by stress and can cause stress.

Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

There are a wide variety of physical and psychological factors that can be the cause of erectile dysfunction. On the physical side, it may result from high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, low testosterone, medication side effects, kidney disease, prostate issues, and more. It may also result from sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, alcohol use, and others. It also can be caused by vascular disease, a blocked vein, or poor blood flow to the penis.

How Acoustic Shockwave Therapy Works in Addressing Erectile Dysfunction

Acoustic shockwaves are intense soundwaves that can target a very specific area under the skin. When used for erectile dysfunction, these acoustic shockwaves are targeted to areas in and around the penis that may be experiencing reduced blood flow or blockage from fatty plaque. As these plaques break down, blood flow can increase and be restored, resolving erectile dysfunction issues.

How Long Do Treatments Take to Work?

While the effects of acoustic shockwave therapy can be dramatic, they can take weeks or months to experience fully. Treatments have been shown to be very effective, with 80% or more of men responding favorably after five or six treatments.

Who Is a Candidate for Acoustic Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction?

Prime candidates for acoustic shockwave therapy in the treatment of erectile dysfunction include those who do not respond to medication, prefer not to take medications, and wish to avoid invasive methods of treatment.
