Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy (LISWT)
The science of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) has advanced greatly in the past 30 years. We have learned why erections happen, both from a physiological and a biochemical standpoint. These discoveries have led to the creation of a whole new class of drugs, like Viagra, which have helped thousands of men to regain an active sex life. Despite taking these drugs, many men still find that their performance is still less than satisfactory. Until now, solutions to this problem included only surgery or self-injections.
The Benefits of LISWT
Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy (LISWT), also known as GAINSWave Therapy, for the penis represents a new, effective, and natural treatment for ED. It works by gently stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to increase blood flow to the penis, and to increase sensitivity. Scientific studies have shown that stem cells will be recruited to the treatment areas, bringing other growth factors, resulting in new healthy vascular tissue.
The treatments are performed in the office. No anesthesia is required, and the therapy takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Two sessions per week over a course of 3 weeks is the recommended protocol. Follow up additional sessions can be added, depending on patient preferences.
Experience Success with LISWT
Results from men recently undergoing therapy have been very positive. Men who had not been able to have intercourse for years, are now waking with spontaneous, hard, morning erections. They have been able to achieve successful and enjoyable intercourse, with more confidence and duration than before. Many report increased sensitivity and more pleasure during sex. LISWT can be combined with other therapies including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection, and oral therapy. A combined approach to treating ED is changing the way we think about sexual health. Many men, previously unable or unwilling to be treated by the older methods, can now be helped to again enjoy an active and healthy sex life.
