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. 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.
The final result will be felt weeks later, and many will feel the best results after 8 to 12 weeks. Chronic pain will not weaken you after this time, as long as you have received reliable treatments. Patients have reported notable improvements within three weeks of starting the course. As a drug-free alternative to Viagra and other potent drugs, shockwave therapy provides more than a short-term effect and treats the cause rather than the symptoms.
Increased nitric oxide creates an effect similar to that of PDE-5 inhibitors, such as Vardenafil (Viagra), Sildenafil (Levitra) and Tadalafil (Cialis), but the treatment effect can last up to two years. Throughout the course of treatment, patients will begin to see the benefits and some men will experience a noticeable improvement after just one session. Patients report increased sensitivity and firmer and longer lasting erections. Depending on the severity of the injury and what you are being treated, you may feel relief after one or two treatments.
Because each person responds to treatment differently, it is impossible to predict how long after shockwave therapy sessions you will feel good. During treatment, hyperstimulation of tissues can create a temporary anesthetic effect that makes you feel good immediately after the session. For some people, this anesthesia-like sensation lasts for hours. For others, it can last for days.
It usually takes about 16 weeks after treatment to experience the full benefits of shockwave therapy. Each treatment continues your progress, which can be seen in spontaneous erections in the 24-hour period after the appointment and in improving sexual performance during the time between treatments. However, this progress is constant and offers regular improvement until the final results are achieved. Unlike some medications, this treatment does not offer instant and short-term results.
Instead, it works with your body to produce lasting improvements. This usually happens after 6 to 12 treatments. Acoustic wave therapy for erectile dysfunction is affordable and results are much more spontaneous, immediate and long-term than many other methods. For men who are not candidates for the acoustic wave or if the acoustic wave does not provide satisfactory improvement, other treatments for erectile dysfunction are available.
These attributes make shockwave treatment an attractive option, with more restorative and long-lasting results. Shockwave therapy has proven successful over the years and is becoming widely accepted in the medical community. These waves help increase healthy blood circulation throughout the penis, which is necessary to achieve and maintain an erection. Acoustic wave therapy for ED is a simple, drug-free, painless, non-invasive procedure that cures or reduces the vascular difficulties of ED rather than just treating the symptoms.
Acoustic waves focused on the area create new blood vessels in the penile tissue, allowing men to achieve and maintain firm and spontaneous erections. While acoustic wave therapy is suitable for most men suffering from erectile dysfunction, there are some conditions or contraindications that mean that acoustic wave is not an option. This treatment uses sound waves to interrupt the transmission of pain neurotransmitters through the body, which means that acoustic energy is working at the molecular level to reorganize and correct the way the body interprets pain. After patients apply the anesthetic gel and it takes effect, the shock waves will be directed to various areas around the shaft and base of the penis.
The same acoustic wave therapy is now used for a similar effect on the blood vessels of the corpora cavernosa of the penis. The idea of shockwave therapy comes from doctors who use shock waves to break down gallstones and kidneys. We will apply a gel to the surface of the skin to help sound waves travel more easily through the tissues of the body. Shockwave therapy helps the body to dissolve fibrous scar tissue and treat this condition, helping to restore a man's sex life.
