Evidence Based Treatment For Erectile Dysfunction

Updated: Oct 16, 2018

Shockwave for ED

Shockwave therapy is the best treatment option available in regenerative medicine. It works by breaking down unwanted restrictions, such as scar tissue, and stimulating new blood vessel growth to the penis and surrounding tissues. It has been used in Europe for decades as a first and last resort in urological treatments, including kidney stones, Peyronie’s disease, pelvic floor weakness and, yes, even Erectile Dysfunction.

The Science

As one of the most effective technologies used for treating kidney stones, it didn’t take long to find that the positive effects of shockwaves were numerous and more versatile than previously believed.

Shockwaves work by disrupting and removing any tissue that should not be present, such as scar tissue, while simultaneously stimulating new blood vessel growth (angiogenesis) to the impacted tissue. As a result of treatment, tissue responds with better range of motion due to fewer restrictions and overall improvement in circulation to the area. The most common underlying cause for Erectile Dysfunction is poor blood flow to or scar tissue in the penis. Whether this is a result of aging or disease, such as diabetes, the overall beneficial effect of the shockwaves are the same.
