Focused Shockwave Therapy
What is focused shockwave therapy?
In general, shockwave therapy uses shockwaves which are single pulses of energy that travel faster than the speed of sound to stimulate blood flow to the affected area. These shockwaves create new blood vessels, through a process called neovascularization. This process is used to treat conditions like:
- Heart disease
- Kidney stones
- Joint inflammation
Blood flow is vital for achieving and maintaining an erection. When healthy, arteries near your penis open wider when you’re sexually aroused, but when you struggle with erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence, they may not be able to widen correctly.
Over the last decade, using low-frequency shockwaves has been shown to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction and stimulating blood flow to the penis.
How does shockwave therapy work?
Shockwave therapy is administered by your provider at Happy Valley Clinic, and the appointments are generally quick and easy, usually lasting between 25-30 minutes. Men don’t typically find the process painful at all and don’t need anesthesia or any type of numbing cream, and they often only report feeling a slight tingling sensation during the procedure.
When you visit Happy Valley Clinic for shockwave therapy, you’ll be asked to disrobe and sit on the exam table. The shockwave handpiece is slid along the shaft of the penis and crura. We use a sonic gel to transmit the painless shockwave energy.
What are the benefits of shockwave therapy?
Shockwave therapy has been helping men around the world treat erectile dysfunction for over 10 years, but the long-term upside it offers makes it unique among the traditional treatment options. While oral medication or vacuum devices can be helpful in treating ED, they also work on an as-needed basis and only provide the desired effect for one sexual encounter. These treatments do nothing to address the root issue and won’t make it any easier to achieve an erection in the future.
Shockwave therapy directly targets the mechanism that allows you to attain an erection and makes it easier for you to achieve one on your own over time. It’s also a noninvasive and pain-free treatment option that can fit into any schedule.
If you’re interested in trying shockwave therapy, don’t risk visiting a competitor and receiving an unproven or untested version of the procedure. Happy Valley Clinic uses a focused shockwave device that has been studied for 12 years in research and clinical use, unlike other practices that use methods and radial devices that haven’t been researched or proven effective.
