Acoustic Wave Therapy
As men age, it’s common for them to start experiencing difficulties in the bedroom. Over 50% of men aged 50 and older experience some trouble getting or keeping an erection. This percentage continues to increase as men age. However, they can have problems with erectile dysfunction at any age.
One of the leading causes of erectile dysfunction is a deterioration of blood vessels in the penis. Over time, the blood vessels fill with micro-plaque, which hampers blood flow. The typical course of treatment for this kind of problem is medication, such as Cialis or Viagra.
However, what if taking this medication isn’t enough, or causes side effects like headaches and many other symptoms? What if you want a safe alternative because erectile dysfunction pills interact negatively with other medicines you take? That’s where acoustic wave therapy comes into play.
What Is Acoustic Wave Therapy?
Acoustic wave therapy (AWT) is a unique type of treatment that uses acoustic waves pressure to enhance blood circulation. The acoustic waves create micro-ruptures in the capillaries. This microtrauma delivers blood to tissues within the body and encourages the growth of new blood vessels.
AWT is based on shock wave therapy, which has been around since the 1980s. Originally, shock wave therapy was used to treat kidney stones, and hospitals around the world still use it for this purpose.
Fortunately, doctors have learned that it can treat more than just kidney stones. It’s used in many medical practices thanks to how safe it is. Some of the common medical conditions it can treat include:
- Plantar fasciitis.
- Shoulders, Knees, Hips and wrist pain.
- Fat reduction.
- Nonhealing wounds and
The energy that AWT delivers through the body results in several positive biological reactions. Most notably, it causes neovascularization, which is the formation of new blood vessels. This reaction makes it a great alternative to pills that treat erectile dysfunction.
How Does Acoustic Wave Therapy Improve Erectile Dysfunction?
AWT is a scientifically proven method for fighting and even preventing erectile dysfunction in men in two significant ways. First, it encourages the growth of new blood vessels to improve circulation to the penis. Second, it breaks up the micro-plaque that forms in the blood vessels of the penis and prevents proper blood flow.
The results of AWT differ, but it generally helps men achieve a more sustainable and sturdier erection. In some cases, it can even result in a larger erection because of the increased blood flow to the penis
The actual procedure itself doesn’t take that long and can be done in the doctor’s office. In most cases, it only takes between 10 and 30 minutes a couple of times a week. Men often start to see results in as little as three weeks.
The effects of AWT, however, last a long time. Unlike pills that men have to continue taking, AWT results can last up to three years. The actual amount of time depends on each individual and his lifestyle.
Yes, AWT is exceptionally safe and uses FDA cleared technology. The most common side effect is a slight discomfort in the treated area that lasts only for a few days. Usually, the discomfort is minor and can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications.
However, most men don’t experience any discomfort at all with this type of treatment. This makes AWT one of the safest methods available for treating erectile dysfunction.
