Shockwave Therapy a Safe, Fast and Effective Method of Treating ED

Written By Hancock Healthcare Group on September 30, 2021

Shockwave for Erectile DysfunctionErectile dysfunction (ED) affects approximately 30 million American men. Studies show that early 17% of men in their 60s and 50% of men 75 and older experience some level of ED. Physical factors include low testosterone, heart disease, sleep disorders and more can lead to the need for therapies to correct ED.

Hancock Healthcare Group in Cape Coral implements precision shockwave therapy to treat ED patients. It’s a non-invasive outpatient treatment option producing little to no pain, and has no known adverse or unwanted side effects.

How Shockwave Therapy Helps With ED

Focused shockwave therapy delivers precision shockwaves that increase cell wall permeability, improve circulation, and aid in pain reduction. Focused shockwave stimulates growth factors and promotes the release of nitric oxide, a molecule that helps in various ways, including reducing inflammation. It’s also an FDA-approved treatment for plantar fasciitis and is used regularly to treat ED.

Shockwave therapy is applied to the treatment areas for about 15 minutes, helping improve blood flow and tissue remodeling. A small 2010 pilot study produced improvements in ED in 100% of patients over the course of six months of shockwave therapy treatment. Data showed improved blood flow without any negative side effects.

There are no known side effects to this painless, non-invasive treatment that lasts mere minutes. Studies have shown that patients notice significant improvement on the same day of treatment.
