New Device Uses Shock Wave Therapy To Treat Erectile Dysfunction
According to a new study, a new device that uses low-intensity shock wave therapy may be a safe and effective treatment for erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction is a common problem that affects millions of men around the world. While there are many potential causes, one of the most common is poor blood flow to the penis.
Shock wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses sound waves to stimulate blood flow and improve tissue regeneration. The new study, which is published in the journal Andrology, found that the therapy was effective in improving erectile function in men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.
The study involved 60 men with erectile dysfunction who were divided into two groups. One group received shock wave therapy, while the other group received a placebo.
The men who received shock wave therapy had significantly improvements in their erectile function, compared to the placebo group. In addition, the therapy was well tolerated and there were no serious side effects.
This is an exciting development, as shock wave therapy is a non-invasive and potentially effective treatment for erectile dysfunction. If you are suffering from erectile dysfunction, talk to your doctor about whether this therapy may be right for you.
