Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a common sexual problem that affects millions of men worldwide. While there are many potential causes of ED, in many cases it is caused by insufficient blood flow to the penis. Shockwave therapy is a new, non-invasive treatment that uses low-intensity sound waves to improve blood flow to the penis, resulting in better erections.
