Getting older comes with a lot of physical changes but erectile dysfunction (ED) shouldn’t be one of them. Technology like ED shockwave therapy can help improve sexual function for men.

Is it a guaranteed treatment for ED? Seems too good to be true, right? Keep reading to learn more about the ED shockwave therapy machine and what researchers know about its efficacy.

What Is an ED Shockwave Therapy Machine?

Shockwave therapy for ED, also known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave treatment (LI-ESWT), uses soundwave energy to improve blood flow and circulation. Better blood flow means better circulation and new blood vessels. Better blood flow can also mean more frequent, stronger erections.

The shockwave therapy machine is a handheld device that delivers a certain number of pulses (shocks) per minute. The device is similar to the one used for ultrasounds. The treatment process is painless and lasts about 20-30 minutes. 

How Does Shockwave Therapy Work?

During shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction, the device delivers low-intensity shockwaves. The energy from the shocks helps new, healthy blood vessels grow. This process is called angiogenesis.

Increased penile blood flow can help improve the symptoms of ED. Patients may experience longer, stronger erections after treatment. Most patients have at least 2 treatment sessions. Some men may need additional sessions for the desired result. 

Traditionally, shockwave therapy is performed by a doctor. However, there is a new treatment device called the EDX that patients can use from home!

Benefits of Treatment

After completing treatment with shockwave therapy, men can experience a number of benefits, including:

  • Improved quality of erections
  • More frequent erections/spontaneous erections
  • Stronger orgasms
  • Higher libido (sex drive)
  • Improved relationships
  • Increased confidence

Not only can treatment improve physical health, but it can also improve mental and emotional health. Treatment for ED is a part of overall sexual wellness for men. 

Is It Effective?

Shockwave therapy for ED has not been approved by the FDA. However, research studies have found that the therapy can significantly improve symptoms of ED even without other medication (i.e., Viagra).

For example, a 2017 study with over 700 participants showed that 5 sessions of shockwave therapy could increase the quality of erections for men with ED. Shockwave therapy alone or with other medications can be an effective way to achieve stronger erections. 

And in a recent meta-analysis of clinical trials using shockwave therapy, researchers found that erectile dysfunction significantly improved with shockwave therapy. Results from treatment typically lasted one year.
