Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy is a novel approach for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). There are several well-established methods to treating men with ED, including oral medications, vacuum devices, injectables and implantable devices. Shockwave therapy is a newer modality that aims to help the body establish it's own, robust blood supply to the penis to allow for better, stronger and more natural erections.
The appeal of this therapy is that it aims to cure ED, rather than a temporary fix. Pills, pumps and injectables work, but patients need to use them each and every time they want to have an erection.
Like many ED treatments you may see advertised on TV, radio and the internet, it sounds too good to be true, right? Below are links to reputable studies that validate the efficacy of this therapy.
