No anesthesia is needed and clients can return to their daily activities immediately, as there is a non-invasive and painless procedure. With this treatment, you can say goodbye to temporary results. Therapy will no longer last just one night. Instead, patients enjoy the effects of shock wave therapy between two and three years.
Personal factors, such as lifestyle choices and overall health, influence this schedule, but treatment has been shown to be much more permanent than most other options. The advent of sound wave therapy has stimulated numerous studies that attest to its effectiveness. Results can be expected to last up to two years. Most people who receive shockwave therapy for ED usually see benefits within one to three months.
Initial results (in the first few weeks) can be dramatic. There is not yet enough research and long-term data to determine how long the treatment might last, if the effects of treatment could go away, or if you will need additional treatment later. The results are long-lasting and can be more permanent. It has been scientifically proven that the effects last from 2 to 3 years, but this varies depending on individual health and lifestyle factors.
The results of this treatment will continue to improve over several weeks. Approximately 8 to 12 weeks after treatment, you can expect to experience the highest degree of results, namely the absence of chronic pain that interferes with your mobility and general well-being in your daily life. Individual results will vary, however, some studies have shown that a positive response can last up to two years. This treatment is especially useful for men with a mild version of erectile dysfunction.
Studies have provided evidence that shockwave treatment still provided incredible improvements for more than 75% of patients involved. We will apply a gel to the surface of the skin to help sound waves travel more easily through the tissues of the body. Dr. Georgios Hatzichristodoulou, associate professor of urology at the Julius-Maximilians University of Wí¼rzburg in Germany, has conducted several of the European studies on the use of shock wave therapy for erectile dysfunction and Peyronie's disease.
Treatment involves transmitting low-intensity acoustic waves (similar to ultrasound waves) to the treatment area. Cardiologists have shown that acoustic wave technology stimulates the growth of new blood vessels. Studies show that acoustic wave therapy improves erection quality in more than 70% of patients with vasculogenic erectile dysfunction or impairment. Shockwave sound wave therapy has been used for years to successfully treat venous and soft tissue damage.
Hatzichristodoulou, who conducted the first prospective placebo-controlled study of shockwave therapy in patients with Peyronie's disease as a medical student about 17 years ago, says there are three placebo-controlled studies available worldwide on this treatment modality and all show that shockwave treatment in Peyronie's disease is effective in treating penile pain, but it does not improve or correct the curvature of the penis. These acoustic waves accelerate the body's healing response, stimulating the treated tissues to grow new blood vessels, improving erection performance. Studies have shown that low-energy shockwave therapy can improve the response to oral medications for erectile dysfunction. In a review of 14 studies of men who received low-intensity extracorporeal acoustic wave (LI-ESWT) treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED), there was evidence that these men experienced improvements in their ED after LI-ESWT.
It is important to distinguish shock wave therapy from radio wave therapy, which is commonly advertised as a non-invasive treatment for erectile dysfunction available in both medical and non-medical facilities. Acoustic wave therapy may also promote natural and spontaneous erections, according to a study conducted through the U. Acoustic wave therapy for erectile dysfunction is affordable and results are much more spontaneous, immediate and long-term than many other methods. Acoustic waves focused on the area create new blood vessels in the penile tissue, allowing men to achieve and maintain firm and spontaneous erections.
