If you’re one of the 50% of males who have suffered from erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives, you will be pleased to know that there is a painless new therapy that can effectively treat the physical condition.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is more colloquially known as impotence, and it describes the inability to get and maintain an erection in order to successfully have sexual intercourse. It’s very common, especially in older males and will be experienced by around half of all men between the ages of 40 and 70 at some point.

Although common, however, it can be very distressing for couples and lead to relationship challenges if an effective treatment isn’t sought. The good news is that Low Intensity Shockwave Therapy (LI-SWT) treatment is an effective and painless means of alleviating the physical problem.

How can LI-SWT be used to treat ED?

The treatment involves low-intensity shockwaves (similar to ultrasound waves) being focused onto the penile tissues. These shockwaves stimulate the treated tissues to grow new micro blood vessels, resulting in improved erection performance.

How effective is LI-SWT for ED?

The results of the clinical studies over the last 5 years are encouraging, with up to 70% of patients with ED reporting that they are able to go on and have sexual intercourse successfully after LI-SWT without the use of other aids. Also in clinical practice this treatment has shown long-term effectiveness, however the treatment may need to be repeated.

When is LI-SWT an appropriate treatment for ED?

Although other treatments such as vacuum pumps, drugs and injections are commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction, these therapies tend to only work for one period of sexual intercourse at a time, and need to be taken at specified time periods beforehand to be successful. LI-SWT is different, as it improves the underlying erectile mechanism so that the man can develop and sustain an erection independently and without needing extra treatment. This Novel treatment can improve the erectile tissues in most patients with ED; However, LI-SWT is more effective for patients with ED due to vascular disease and diabetes.

Are there any risks or side effects?

Most of the Clinical publications in LI-SWT for ED report no side-effects. Occasionally patient can experience mild discomfort during the treatment.

Treatment Protocol of LI-SWL for ED:

What our patients have to say

  • The treatment session lasts for 20 minutes and I had 6 sessions. After the 4th session, I had intercourse with my partner which was the best erection I have had in previous years. Apart from a strong erection I was able to make love a lot longer, I highly recommend this treatment.
