What Is Acoustic Wave Therapy
Acoustic wave therapy is a unique advanced technology that uses acoustic shockwaves and has been shown to help alleviate erectile dysfunction. It has also been shown to provide many other benefits like helping people recover from musculoskeletal injuries including sports injuries.
What Conditions Can Acoustic Wave Therapy Treat?
Acoustic wave therapy has long been used to treat musculoskeletal injuries including damaged tendon, ligaments, sprains, and tennis elbow. It works by increasing circulation to the injured area, stimulating cells that generate new bone and connective tissue, and reduces pain by overstimulating nerve endings. It is recommended for people who do not want to undergo surgical procedures and have nagging injuries that do not seem to want to heal.
Additionally, shockwave therapy is used to treat planter fascia, a condition that causes stiffness and heel pain due to inflammation of the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. It works by applying acoustic waves to the planter fascia generating new connective tissue and reducing pain. It has also been shown to work for Achilles tendinitis, shoulder tendinitis, and patellar tendinitis in a similar manner.
Furthermore, acoustic wave therapy can be used as an erectile dysfunction treatment and works by applying shock waves to the outer skin of the penile shaft. This stimulates penile tissue and encourages blood flow. As blood flow is essential for achieving and maintaining an erection, this can be extremely beneficial for treating erectile dysfunction.
Benefits of Acoustic Wave Therapy
Shockwave therapy has many benefits for both erectile dysfunction and musculoskeletal injuries. Low blood flow is the root cause of erectile dysfunction and shockwave therapy works to increase blood flow.
Shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction can be a more permanent way of improving erectile function. Unlike prescription medicines like Viagra, which only create a temporary increase in blood flow to the penis, shockwave therapy restores erectile mechanisms and allows you to get an erection natural and spontaneously. This result in a better sex drive because you know you can get spontaneous erections and has less performance anxiety.
For musculoskeletal injuries, the benefits of shockwave therapy are immense. Shockwave therapy works with your body to stimulate growth factors and heal your injuries naturally. Additionally, it is a non-surgical procedure that does not require you to set aside time for a surgical procedure and does not require any cutting into the body. Also, it does not require any recovery time or rehabilitation processes and you continue living your normal life and doing the activities you love between procedures. It also can help relieve pain, negating the need for pain medications that may be addictive.
Does Acoustic Wave Therapy Really Work?
Acoustic wave therapy has long been used as a treatment for musculoskeletal injuries and has been proven to be effective. Clinical studies have generally shown shockwave therapy to be an effective treatment for all levels of severity of erectile dysfunction with most men showing a continual improvement in their erectile function six months after treatment. As with any medical treatment, it is best to discuss your options and treatment plan with a doctor to understand fully the risks and benefits of shockwave therapy. Currently, shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction is not approved by the FDA so accurate advice from a medical professional is essential.
Is Acoustic Wave Therapy Painful?
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical outpatient procedure that does not normally cause much pain. However, in some cases you may feel a little pain or discomfort in the treatment area during the procedure. Most people compare it to a small pulsating sensation against the skin.
Some people experience slight discomfort for a brief period after the procedure, but this tends to dissipate within 48 hours (about 2 days). Furthermore, in the days following shockwave therapy, you may experience swelling or redness in the treatment area. However, this is completely normal and is indicative of the healing process and will usually dissipate within a couple of days.
How long does acoustic wave therapy last?
Acoustic wave therapy for musculoskeletal injuries such as tennis elbow accelerates the body’s natural healing power and can heal an injury for a substantial amount of time unless you reinjure that muscle so be sure to work on your form, so you do not get tennis elbow again.
Acoustic wave therapy for ED can be a more permanent way of improving erectile function. Unlike prescription medicines like Viagra, which only create a temporary increase in blood flow to the penis, shockwave therapy restores erectile mechanisms and allows you to get an erection natural and spontaneously. The effects can be long lasting as the therapy is actually healing the tissue and blood vessels in your penis. Typically, the effects of acoustic wave therapy can last anywhere from to three years, however, the research on long-term benefits is still limited at this time.
