Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment for erectile dysfunction that uses low-intensity sound waves to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and improve blood flow to the penis. This therapy is also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT).
During the procedure, a wand-like device is placed on the penis and emits low-intensity sound waves that stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and promote the release of growth factors. This can lead to improved blood flow to the penis, which can help to improve erectile function.
Shockwave therapy is a treatment for erectile dysfunction that may be considered for men who have not responded to other treatments, such as oral medications or injections. It may also be an option for men who prefer a non-invasive treatment option.
