What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)?

The ESWT procedure involves using a series of sound waves to treat erectile dysfunction, or ED.

The risk of experiencing some aspect of ED increases as men age. According to some studies, men in their 40s have a 40% chance of going through ED. This trend continues with each decade, with men in the 50 age-range having a 50% chance, and so on. Over time the tissues and blood vessels of the penis break down, making it difficult to retain enough blood for a full erection.

ESWT is a Non-Invasive, Surgery-Free, and Drug-Free, ED Treatment

How does ESWT work as an ED treatment?

The effectiveness and impact of ESWT’s treatment of erectile dysfunction is still being studied, but many think the impact of the sound waves stimulate natural processes that affect the vascular network and tissues of the penis. Another theory suggests that ESWT assists with the tissue elasticity required for an erection. ESWT specifically targets these areas of the penis that are usually involved in ED. Some men have communicated noticeable improvements after this treatment, which could lead to an improved bedroom experience due to better erections.

There are many different causes to erectile dysfunction, and individuals respond to treatments differently. Some men see results from combining treatments, including pills or injections. Effectiveness and any possible side effects have been reviewed by multiple studies, with mainly positive conclusions. Some achiness, skin reddening, and puffiness are the more likely risks, with a slight chance of burst blood vessels or bruises. Unobserved side effects may be revealed in the Practice of Medicine.

What are the results of ESWT?

A significant amount of research provides positive findings for ESWT treating the effects of erectile dysfunction. These studies use the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) Questionnaire scores when evaluating treatment. The IIEF unit of measure is a multifaceted, trusted, and self-reported evaluation used by medical professionals to test treatments for ED. Questionnaires can vary based on the study.

One such report from The Journal of Sexual Medicine found an improved IIEF of 6.4 points among 602 patients during an analysis of 7 randomized controlled trials.

Not only have many researchers found improved (IIEF) scores following ESWT treatment, the treatments also feature these added benefits:

– no needles
– no surgery
– no medication

Erectile dysfunction can negatively influence a man emotionally and relationally. Luckily, men can utilize a treatment like ESWT to help fight their ED and improve their sex life.
