Are you one of over 30 million American men living with ED?

If so, you’re no stranger to the challenges presented by this often embarrassing and frustrating medical condition. And, you’ve probably tried a treatment or two, already with limited results. 

Sound sadly familiar?

Don’t despair. Help is on the way!

In this article, we’ll walk you through some of the basics of erectile dysfunction shockwave therapy. And, we’ll answer your number one question – does it hurt?

Keep reading for all the information, broken down into simple terms we promise you’ll understand. 

What Is Erectile Dysfunction Shockwave Therapy?

The EDX uses low intensity, yet therapeutic and deeply penetrating ultrasound waves to treat ED.

Each pulse travels deep into the tissue and induces vasodilation, increasing blood flow to the treated area. This improvement in circulation is essential to restoring male vitality, as blood flow is a proven factor when it comes to achieving and maintaining an erection.  

When used on a daily basis, this method can also help your body deliver oxygen and nutrients to the treated area, two vital factors necessary for restoring male performance- all without the use of medication. 

For the best possible results, shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction should be administered for 20 minutes each day. But, the EDX is small and silent – so you’re free to use it any time, anywhere! 

Does It Hurt?

The EDX isn’t just the best erectile dysfunction shockwave therapy machine. It’s also perfectly painless!

While different users experience different sensations during treatment, they all agree on one thing – it doesn’t hurt. As you apply the EDX, you will feel the gentle pulses of energy that it emits.

Most people describe feeling tapping, tingling, or twitching. And, while these sensations may be mildly uncomfortable for the first few seconds, the feeling should pass quickly.

You may feel a slight numbness, tickling, or tingling after therapy, similar to the sensation of a hand or foot falling asleep. But, this will also subside, probably within just a few minutes. 

Unlike other manual medical treatments for ED, shockwave therapy won’t require any anesthesia. In fact, the only thing you’ll need to do to get ready is to apply a small amount of ultrasound gel! 

Does Shockwave Therapy Really Work?

When it comes to today’s erectile dysfunction treatment options, shockwave therapy is easily the least invasive. And, you won’t need multiple visits to the doctor, expensive tests, surgery, or even medication to experience results.

The medical name for shockwave therapy is low-intensity shockwave therapy, sometimes referred to as LiSWT. 

Believe it or not, LiSWT isn’t cutting edge technology. In fact, it’s been used in orthopedics for years!

Shockwave therapy has been proven to help heal broken bones, injured ligaments, and injured tendons. And, it has also been used to improve wound healing, speed up tissue repair, and boost cell growth.

Shockwave therapy repairs and strengthens the blood vessels around these injuries, improving blood flow and helping them to heal faster. This method of ED therapy is no different! Because a healthy erection relies on blood flow, LiSWT is an outstanding method of treatment that targets and treats the cause of ED, rather than masking its symptoms.

It’s also important to note that increasing blood flow to the penis is the same goal of other erectile dysfunction remedies, including oral medications like sildenafil (Viagra) and tadalafil (Cialis).

Because LiSWT and the EDX treat low circulation rather than temporarily boosting it, you also won’t have to worry about perfectly timing your sexual encounters. The goal is to restore healthy, normal blood flow that leaves users ready to perform at a moment’s notice – not fumbling for pills exactly 30 minutes before they plan to have sex. 

What About Side Effects?

Some ED treatments come loaded with uncomfortable and even painful side effects. But, unlike surgeries and injections, you won’t need significant time to recover after your shockwave treatment. And, you won’t have to worry about drug interactions, allergies, or reactions, either!

During a 2010 study, shockwave therapy for ED was shown to deliver lasting results – and patient followup revealed no adverse effects. 

Sadly, the same can’t be said for other forms of erectile dysfunction help.

Most medication for ED can leave some users with adverse effects, including headaches, flushing and rash, upset stomach and diarrhea, nasal congestion, vision problems, and dizziness. And, in some rare cases, these pills can cause long-lasting and painful erections that require medical intervention.

Surgical solutions for ED and injections are also known for their uncomfortable side effects, with bleeding, swelling, and pain sited as the primary concerns. Scarring, the curvature of the penis, and other rare but serious adverse conditions have also been documented. 

Because the EDX uses painless ultrasound technology, you won’t experience any of these uncomfortable or potentially embarrassing after-effects!
