Low-intensity shockwave therapy (LISWT) has been used for years for wound, and damaged ligament healing. It wasn't until the past decade that doctors began using it to treat patients with erectile dysfunction.
LISWT is best for patients who have ED caused by inadequate blood flow to the penis. Erections require sufficient blood flow to the penis, and several conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes can lead to erectile dysfunction. This treatment is associated with the growth of new blood vessels and brings stem cells to the penis. It uses regenerative technology for a proactive approach to your erectile dysfunction.
While you may feel some pressure, LISWT does not cause any pain. Your provider will use a wand-like device to deliver shockwaves directly to the penis. Typically, only a few weeks of treatment are needed. Each session lasts around 20 minutes and does not require any anesthesia or produce any major side effects.
