Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy
Erectile Dysfunction is a common and under report health issue for males. Stress, health issues, diet, obesity and medications all can have negative effects on male sexual health. Erectile dysfunction is experienced in 40% of males over 40 year old and 70% of men over the age of 70. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is a safe, painless, effective therapy for erectile dysfunction.
How does it work?
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) uses low intensity sound wave technology to increase blood flow the penis. ESWT will increase flow to existing blood vessels and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels. Also, ESWT will stimulate nerve tissue growth that will increase sensitivity to the penis. Most men will need 5-10 treatments to achieve a clinical significant result.
What results should I expect?
ESWT is a in office procedure last approximately 15-20 minute. It is painless and safe with no side effects. After treatment, 80% of men will experience a positive result and improved sexual health. This includes stronger erections, ease to erection and maintaining erections. Men that are on medications for erectile dysfunction are able to stop these medications after treatment with ESWT. Results will vary from person to person but overall ESWT has shown to be an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction.
At Polo Health & Longevity, we take a holistic approach to men’s health. Along with ESWT, we counsel men on weight loss, IV mineral and vitamin balancing, nutrition and Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).
It has been a few weeks since the last session and I’m really impressed with the results. More so my partner is really happy with the results. She says it’s like I’m 20 years younger or more. The Shock Wave Therapy is so easy and the results have been so amazing would highly recommend men go see Doc Blyth and do this process immediately.
