Erectile dysfunction (ED) is undoubtedly one of the most frustrating conditions a man can face, often wreaking havoc on his confidence, sex life, and even relationships. While there’s no shortage of ED treatments available today, many men prefer a more natural alternative to medication and surgery. For these patients, we offer non-invasive shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction in Las Vegas, NV. Use this helpful information to learn more about shockwave therapy, how it works, and whether it may be useful in improving your sexual function.

 

What causes erectile dysfunction?

In a great number of cases, erectile dysfunction is closely tied to the natural aging process, a decline in testosterone, and other age-related factors. However, erectile dysfunction is often a multifactorial condition, meaning there may be more than one cause at work. Many men don’t realize that ED can strike at any age—even in young men. Common causes and risk factors associated with ED include:

  • Age
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Andropause
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Vascular condition
  • Heart condition
  • Certain medications
  • Certain treatments for BPH and prostate cancer
  • Trauma
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Depression
  • Psychological factors
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Drug use

 

Technically speaking, one of the primary causes of erectile dysfunction is poor blood flow to the penis, which may be related to an underlying vascular condition or age. However, ED can affect men at virtually any stage in their lives. Regardless of your age we have a number of highly effective, reliable, and long-lasting ED treatment options to choose from, including shockwave therapy.

 

What is shockwave therapy for ED?

If you are exploring treatment options for ED,  you may be excited to discover shockwave therapy. Also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave treatment (LI-ESWT), shockwave therapy utilizes a specialized form of soundwave energy to stimulate blood flow in the penis, improve circulation, and encourage growth of new, healthy blood vessels. During each treatment session, which is virtually painless and typically lasts about 30 minutes or less, shock waves will be admitted directly to the penis through a handpiece, similar to those used during an ultrasound. The majority of patients notice an improvement in their ED symptoms after as few as two treatments, though some men may require additional shock wave sessions to achieve their goals. Following a complete course of shockwave therapy for ED, patients often enjoy:

 

  • Improved quality of erections
  • More frequent erections
  • Ability to get spontaneous erections
  • Better sexual stimulation
  • Stronger orgasms
  • Higher libido
  • More fulfilling sex life
  • Improved relationships
  • Increased self-confidence
