What is wave therapy?
Wave therapy – more commonly known in the medical community as shockwave therapy – is a therapy making use of the energy from acoustic waves to trigger neovascularization in specific, targeted areas of the body. Neovascularization is the process through which new blood vessels are formed, which helps improve the blood flow to the treated area.
It has commonly been used in those who have heart problems, those with kidney stones, and for the treatment of fractures and joint inflammation, although new research has shown that it can also be useful in the treatment of erectile dysfunction – as men who suffer from erectile dysfunction have difficulties with forming and maintaining an erection, which is caused by blood flow issues to and in the penis.
While there already exist several treatments for erectile dysfunction, which include medications, penis pumps, and injections, these treatments are usually used on an as-needed basis, working for only one sexual encounter at a time. Wave therapy is an alternative to these, as it targets the erectile mechanism itself, which may allow men to achieve and maintain erections of their own – without the need for constant medication use or the use of pumps.
What can I expect from a wave therapy appointment?
When it comes to the administration of wave therapy, the physician applies a probe to the penis, which is covered in a special gel. Treatment may last for fifteen to twenty minutes and may target different areas. Most men require six sessions to see full results from the procedure.
The good news about the treatment is that it is usually pain-free and there is no need for anesthesia – although some have reported a tingling sensation. It is a safe, non-invasive alternative for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, although you should consult with your doctor to see if it is right for you.
Wave therapy is completely drug-free, non-invasive, and can easily be performed in your doctor’s office; many men have reported and found that their erections have improved after treatment and that they can successfully have sexual intercourse.
What are the average costs of wave therapy treatment? And how long do results last?
The cost of six sessions of wave therapy typically costs approximately $2000 to $3000. If you have questions about the costs of wave therapy, then you should speak with your practitioner for rates and details.
Typically, patients notice positive results one to three weeks after their treatment. The effects of wave therapy usually last between two to three years, depending on the severity of your erectile dysfunction and whether you have a pre-existing condition, such as diabetes. It is generally recommended, however, that you have annual maintenance treatments to maintain optimal sexual performance.
