Shockwave Therapy to Treat Erectile Dysfunction2018-12-11T10:16:19+00:00

Erectile dysfunction is usually the result of poor circulation to the penis. It currently affects over 40% of men over 40 in Canada.

ED Shock Wave therapy is an innovative medical treatment that uses low intensity sound waves with an attempt to address the vascular cause of erectile dysfunction, and not just its symptoms.

Shockwave therapy has been successfully tested and regularly used in various areas of medicine including Orthopedics, Aesthetic Medicine, and Sports Medicine. There are numerous scientific studies that show shockwave therapy can potentially improve local revascularization of the affected organ.

The aim of ED shockwave therapy (EDSWT) is to trigger regeneration of blood vessel in the penile shaft to support stronger, longer, and more satisfying erection.

How ED Shock Wave Therapy Works

Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy (EDSWT) is generally a painless treatment that can potentially help men regain sexual desire and satisfaction.

For many men who have been unsuccessful with other impotence treatments or who have health conditions that limit their options, EDSWT could be a viable option.

The energy pulses in EDSWT are similar to sound waves. There’s usually no discomfort during or after the procedure.

Targeted ED Treatment in Vancouver

Inside the penis is an area called the corpora cavernosa, containing two arteries. An erection occurs when they are filled with blood that’s held in place until ejaculation or orgasm is achieved.

When there is insufficient blood flow, the penis remains flaccid. EDSWT directs energy waves, (extra corporeal shockwaves are the clinical term) with the goal to improve blood flow to the penis.

The successful use of extra corporeal shockwaves is highly documented in many fields of healthcare, including cardiology, physiotherapy, urology and pain management.

The waves are targeted to the area of the body where blood flow has been constrained. The procedure is safe enough for men with heart disease, unlike the risk factors associated with some erectile dysfunction medications.

The benefits of EDSWT include:

  • Painless and safe treatment
  • Available as a private treatment
  • No risk to men with major health conditions
  • No recovery period or known side effects
