What is Acoustic or Shock Wave Therapy for ED?

There are many reasons men struggle with ED. One of the main reasons is a low flow of blood to the penis. Blood flow is what makes the penis become erect in response to sexual stimulation. When blood flow has interruptions, men experience weak erections that lose their rigidity too quickly.

Acoustic wave therapy (also called shock wave therapy) fights against this lack of blood flow. This process uses non-invasive, low-intensity acoustic waves to cause neovascularization directly inside a penis. Neovascularization is the formation of new blood vessels. These new blood vessels improve blood flow encouraging stronger and longer erections. Acoustic wave therapy can also promote natural and spontaneous erections, according to one study conducted through the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM).

The Case for Acoustic Wave Therapy for ED Treatment

Irwin Goldstein, MD, Director of Sexual Medicine at Alvarado Hospital, Director of San Diego Sexual Medicine, and Editor-in-Chief of Sexual Medicine Reviews presented the case for using acoustic or shock wave therapy to treat ED. He suggests that shock wave therapy can be “a new paradigm” for ED treatment.
“You can take a pill, but you wake up the next day with the same erectile tissue and the same problem. If you undergo shockwave therapy, what we hope it will do is change the health of the tissue. Injections, pills or implants don’t really address pathology reversal, but low-intensity shockwave will.”

This treatment is especially helpful for men with a mild version of ED. Studies have provided evidence that shock wave treatment still supplied incredible improvements for more than 75% of patients involved.
