Ready to take control of your ED? Shockwave therapy for ED may be the answer.
Shockwave therapy for ED is the only research-proven, drug-free, non-invasive treatment for ED.
Shockwave therapy has been a proven, effective treatment for orthopedic injuries and disorders for over 20 years. Today, shockwave therapy has shown, in multiple studies and actual patients, to successfully treat ED in 70-80% of patients with ED. Studies on patients with even the most severe cases of ED have shown positive improvement from shockwave therapy approx. 50% of the time.
The term ‘shockwave’ is a bit misleading. ‘Shock’ is not involved. The ‘wave’ is an acoustic wave focused on the application site and is painless. At certain levels of application, there may be some discomfort, but no pain. If there is discomfort, you simply lower the application power. It will not diminish the results.
What is shockwave therapy?
Shockwave therapy uses the energy from acoustic waves to trigger multiple regenerative processes within the area of the body where the shockwaves are applied.
High-intensity shockwave therapy gained widespread acceptance in the mid ’80s as a non-invasive means to treat gall or kidney stones. In the mid ’90s, low-intensity shockwave therapy was shown to be effective in promoting healing and pain relief for orthopedic injuries and disorders.
Studies conducted indicated that shockwave therapy not only dislodged plaque in blood vessels but also triggered regenerative processes including neovascularization (new blood vessels) and the activation of stem or progenitor cells.
Since we all know that blood flow is the key for a man’s ability to have and sustain a quality erection, the extension of shockwave therapy to treat erectile dysfunction, is a logical next step for shockwave therapy.
Does shockwave therapy for ED work?
In research studies Shockwave Therapy for ED has shown to be effective for 60%-80% of patients dealing with various levels of erectile dysfunction.
For patients with the most severe levels of ED, Shockwave Therapy has proven to be effective for 50% or more.
The conclusion of one clinical study with over 700 patients published in 2017 stated:
LI-ESWT (Shockwave Therapy) applied to the corpora cavernosa showed a statistically significant improvement in the quality of erections in ED patients with or without oral or intracavernous treatment, without side effects.
In addition to the ongoing research results, there is a growing body of patient success stories that speak to the success of Shockwave Therapy for ED.
Multiple Studies Confirm Shockwave Therapy for ED works.
How much does shockwave therapy for ED cost?
In a limited survey, we found Shockwave Therapy for ED provided in a medical facility, doctor’s office or clinic to range in cost from $300-$600 per session with 6-12 sessions recommended.
Due to the newness of this therapy, we found pricing to be completely arbitrary and not based on specific costs or industry standards.
There are multiple factors that indicate this level arbitrary pricing is high and will go down significantly as more and more providers enter the market.
These factors include:
-With the long history of Shockwave Therapy in the orthopedic community, Shockwave Therapy equipment is plentiful and competitively priced.
-Side effects of Shockwave Therapy are minimal to non-existent.
-Minimal training required to administer Shockwave Therapy.
-Licencing is not required for individuals administering Shockwave Therapy.
Take Control - Apply Shockwave Yourself
Obtaining shockwave therapy for ED at a medical facility/clinic can quickly become expensive and cost prohibitive. A 6-12 session treatment cycle can cost between $1,800 on the low end, to more than $8,000 on the high end.
Based on the factors previously listed, individuals who suffer from erectile dysfunction do have the option to apply shockwave therapy on themselves utilizing portable shockwave therapy machines.
Portable shockwave therapy machines are currently available priced in a range from $1,500-$3,500. Many of these shockwave therapy machines come pre-programmed with specific treatment regimens for ED.
Utilizing these pre-programmed treatment regimens along with instructional content from the manufacturer and on YouTube, an individual can develop their own personalized treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED).5
