No one should have to struggle with ED or give up having an active sex life as they get older. Erectile dysfunction can harm your relationship, kill your confidence, and leave you feeling anxious and depressed.
If you suffer from ED, you may think that expensive prescription medication is the only solution, but those drugs can drain your wallet pretty quickly. Even worse, prescription ED medications can trigger harmful side effects in many men, leaving them worse off than before.
Shockwave therapy is a natural ED treatment that can help you enjoy a rich and fulfilling romantic life, and has shown to be highly effective in treating mild to moderate erectile dysfunction. My Men’s Clinic has helped countless men with their ED issues utilizing this breakthrough ED treatment. If you want to know if you are a good candidate for shockwave therapy for ED, below are some of the most frequently asked questions about the procedure.

How is Erectile Dysfunction Diagnosed?
Virtually all men occasionally fail to get an erection.
That’s normal. But if a man has trouble getting or maintaining an erection about 25 percent of the time, he should set an appointment immediately.
Usually, after asking questions about when and how the impotence developed, our medical staff will give the patient a complete physical exam to determine if his hormone levels are normal and if the blood vessels, nerves, and tissues of his penis are working properly. If this initial workup doesn’t pinpoint the cause of the problem, a nocturnal penile tumescence test may be done.
What is Shockwave Therapy for ED?
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy, also known as wave therapy, is a non-invasive ED treatment that involves using special low energy acoustic waves on targeted areas. The shockwaves cause inflammation and increase blood flow to the affected area and encourage tissues in the area to heal.
How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?
During wave therapy, pulsating acoustic waves trigger a healing response in dormant stem cells and growth factors in the penis. When growth factors are released, new blood vessels form, and damaged erectile tissues are healed. In addition, shockwave therapy can promote growth of nerve tissues in the penis, resulting in increased blood flow and heightened sensations. This gentle rejuvenation of erectile tissue and nerves is what shockwave therapy is all about, and why this breakthrough treatment has proven to be so effective for ED.

Shockwave Therapy FAQs
What is the Shockwave Therapy Procedure Like?
During the initial shockwave therapy treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the penis. Then, one of our men’s health specialists will use a probe coated in ultrasound gel to target different areas of the penis with the shockwaves.
How Long Does Shockwave Therapy Take?
Shockwave therapy is a quick, pain-free procedure, and generally only takes 20 minutes to complete. Treatment typically involves a course of three treatments, 1-2 weeks apart. However, depending on the severity of the patient’s ED, total healing in the area could take up to one year of treatment. Once results are achieved, the effects of wave therapy can last for up to two years.
What Can I Expect After Shockwave Therapy?
Wave therapy is virtually pain-free and you will be able to drive yourself home after the procedure. Some men might experience temporary tingling, soreness, tenderness, or swelling in the area for a few days after treatment. This is expected, as shockwaves stimulate inflammation in the targeted area, and these side effects are the result of the body naturally healing itself. Again, these side effects should only last a couple of days.
Does Shockwave Therapy for ED Work?
ED can cause depression, lack of confidence, and other issues, but shockwave therapy can reverse the symptoms of ED and allow for stronger, more sustainable erections. Wave therapy has little to no side effects, allows for almost immediate resumption of normal activities after the procedure, and many men experience positive results immediately after treatment.
What are the Benefits of Wave Therapy for ED?
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy is a fast, effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. Some of the benefits of wave therapy include:
- Stronger Erections – increased blood flow and circulation to the treated area results in firmer, long-lasting erections
- Heightened Sensation – repaired erectile tissues and nerve endings in the penis can result in more powerful sexual sensations
- Enhanced Stamina – results vary from patient to patient, but most men notice a significant increase in sexual performance post-treatment
- Minimal Side Effects – most patients experience no side effects, while others only experience mild tingling, numbing, tenderness, and swelling for a few days after treatment
What are the Side Effects of Wave Therapy?
The side effects of wave therapy can vary from patient to patient, but are not severe when compared to the recovery time for invasive procedures. Some patients experience mild discomfort, bruising, swelling, numbness, or tingling in the treated area, while others experience no side effects whatsoever. You will be able to drive yourself home after the procedure. Most patients recover fairly quickly from shockwave treatment.
Should I Get Shockwave Therapy?
Don’t resign yourself to a lifetime of erectile dysfunction. Wave therapy can reverse the symptoms of ED, give you back your ability to achieve and maintain a strong, satisfying erection, and allow you to reconnect and enjoy your time with your partner in the bedroom.
