Acoustic Wave Therapy
What is Acoustic Wave Therapy?
Acoustic wave therapy is a non-invasive treatment option for men with erectile dysfunction. It involves the use of high-frequency sound waves to improve blood flow and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels in the penis.
During the treatment, a device is placed on the skin of the penis and sound waves are directed towards the tissue. These waves increase blood flow resulting in the improvement in the ability to achieve and maintain an erection.
How Sound Waves Affect Your Body
Sound waves are a form of mechanical energy, and when they are applied to the skin they can cause a physical response in the underlying tissue. In the case of acoustic wave therapy for erectile dysfunction, the sound waves are thought to stimulate the production of nitric oxide in the blood vessels of the penis. Nitric oxide is a molecule that relaxes the smooth muscle cells in the blood vessels and increases blood flow.
The increased blood flow can help improve the ability to achieve and maintain an erection, and it may also stimulate the growth of new blood vessels. This process, known as angiogenesis, involves the formation of new blood vessels from existing ones. It is thought that the mechanical energy of the sound waves may stimulate the production of certain growth factors that promote angiogenesis.
To put it simply, instead of provoking growth with synthetic medications, acoustic wave therapy enhances and improves your naturally-occuring somatic functions.
Joint Pain Relief with Acoustic Wave Therapy
Joint pain is a common problem that can be caused by a variety of factors. Some of the most common causes of joint pain include arthritis, injuries, overuse, and underlying medical conditions such as gout or lupus. Joint pain can also be a side effect of certain medications or the result of a previous surgery. The symptoms of joint pain can vary depending on the cause, but may include stiffness, swelling, redness, and difficulty moving the joint.
Acoustic wave therapy for joint pain works by generating pressure waves that pass through the skin and into the deeper tissues of the body, causing mechanical vibrations that can help to break up scar tissue, reduce inflammation, and improve blood flow to the affected area. This can help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and promote the healing process. One of the main benefits of acoustic wave therapy is that it is a relatively quick and painless procedure with minimal side effects. Additionally, it has been shown to be effective for a wide range of joint pain conditions, including tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and osteoarthritis.
How Acoustic Wave Therapy Can Change Your Sex Life
Acoustic wave therapy may help improve blood flow and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, which may in turn help to reduce the build-up of plaque in the arteries of the penis. Plaque is a buildup of fatty deposits on the inner walls of the arteries that can obstruct blood flow and contribute to age-related erectile dysfunction (ED). Although this is not the only cause of erectile dysfunction, it is important to consider.
Stimulating the production of certain growth factors that promote angiogenesis acoustic wave therapy is thought to help to improve blood flow and decrease the build-up of plaque in the arteries.
One benefit of using acoustic wave therapy is that it is non-invasive and does not require the injection of medication or the use of a surgical procedure. This may make it a more appealing option for some men who are hesitant to undergo a more invasive treatment. Acoustic wave therapy is also typically well-tolerated, with few side effects.
Improving your ability to achieve and maintain a strong erection will have a positive impact on sexual satisfaction and overall quality of life. Improved erectile function may allow men with ED to feel more confident and comfortable during sexual activity, which can enhance the intimacy and pleasure experienced by both partners.
Things to Consider About Acoustic Wave Therapy
Although acoustic wave therapy is an excellent treatment option for erectile dysfunction with many benefits, you should always communicate with one of our healthcare professionals to discuss which options are best suited for you.
Here are some things you should consider about acoustic wave therapy:
- If you have a bleeding disorder or are taking blood thinners: Acoustic wave therapy involves the application of sound waves to the skin, which may cause bruising or swelling. If you have a bleeding disorder or are taking medications that increase the risk of bleeding, acoustic wave therapy may not be recommended.
- If you have an infection: Acoustic wave therapy may not be recommended if you have an active infection in the area being treated, as the procedure may increase the risk of infection spreading.
- If you have a pacemaker: Acoustic wave therapy involves the use of electrical devices, which may interfere with the functioning of a pacemaker. If you have a pacemaker, it is important to inform your healthcare provider before undergoing acoustic wave therapy.
Generally considered one of the most non-invasive, painless procedures for erectile dysfunction, acoustic wave therapy is a great option for you! If you are ready to enhance your sex drive and performance in the bedroom, give us a call and see how we can help you!
