Are you and your partner sick and tired of your ED symptoms? Do you want to avoid pills, surgeries, and other invasive treatments? Fortunately, there are other options!
Let’s explore what GAINSwave therapy from your men’s health doctor in Melbourne, FL, can do for you.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Embarrassing and relationship-straining, erectile dysfunction hampers the love lives of about 30 million American men. ED involves the inability to have a firm enough erection for sexual activity. While 40 percent of 40-year-old men and 70 percent of seventy-year-olds and up struggle with ED, age is not always the determining factor in this sexual health problem.
In fact, ED may be more related to overall health problems, such as diabetes, coronary artery and peripheral artery disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other serious issues. Trauma to the genital area can cause ED, as well as psychological factors, such as anxiety, stress, and depression.
Accordingly, men’s health experts have developed a wide range of erectile dysfunction treatments. In Jacksonville, FL, and around the US, one of the more popular treatments is extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). Similar to lithotripsy, which urologists use to break up kidney stones, ESWT breaks up the plaque within the penile shaft that hampers achievement and maintenance of firm erections.
How GAINSwave Therapy For ED Works
Offered by NIVA Men’s Health, GAINSwave therapy for ED sends low-intensity sound waves directly into the penis to degrade plaque painlessly. This treatment:
- Improves blood flow and stimulates growth of new blood vessels
- Increases penile sensitivity
- Creates better nerve function
There is no anesthesia required for this quick, in-office procedure. After an examination and discussion of symptoms, the doctor determines if you are a candidate.
If so, expect to lie comfortably on the treatment table while the doctor passes a wand-like instrument over the area. The wand emits gentle sound wave pulses for about 15 minutes. The treatment causes no pain and requires no downtime. Return to your normal day with no restrictions on work, sports, or sexual activity.
With the first treatment, men report an 80 percent improvement in sexual function. Most ED patients require twice-weekly treatments for three weeks, followed by a period of rest and then another round of twice-weekly treatment for three weeks.
Your treatment plan will depend on your symptoms, other ED treatments you may be using, your health issues, and other factors. Effects from the treatment can last for about one year, and the treatment can be repeated again, as needed.
