A new Non-drug treatment for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) in Charlotte, NC
Erectile dysfunction (ED), the inability to maintain an erection, is a common problem, affecting up to 30 million men in the United States. While there are many potential causes of ED, it is often caused by a combination of physical and psychological factors. Treatment for ED typically involves taking medications, such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), or vardenafil (Levitra). However, these medications are not always effective, and they can have potentially dangerous side effects. For these reasons, many men are interested in finding non-drug treatments for ED.
One promising non-drug treatment for ED is a low-intensity shockwave therapy (LI-ESWT). LI-ESWT is a new, non-invasive treatment that uses sound waves to improve blood flow to the penis. LI-ESWT has been shown to be safe and effective in several small studies. In a recent study, 65% of men who underwent LI-ESWT reported improved erections, and no serious side effects were reported.
If you are interested in exploring LI-ESWT as a treatment for ED, the team at Charlotte Men’s Clinic can help. We are the only clinic in the Charlotte area that offers LI-ESWT. Our board-certified urologists have experience treating ED with LI-ESWT and can answer any questions you may have about the treatment. To learn more, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
