Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a problem that many men struggle with at some point in their lives. In fact, it's estimated that there are about 30 million American patients suffering from ED. While there are a number of treatments available to treat ED, many of them are ineffective, invasive, or come with a host of unwanted side effects.
Now, there's a new, revolutionary treatment available that is showing promise in treating erectile dysfunction - it's called GainsWAVE. Like other restorative therapies, GainsWAVE is a type of low-intensity shockwave therapy that uses sound waves to stimulate blood flow and promote healing. But what makes GainsWAVE ED wave therapy different is that it's a non-invasive, drug-free treatment option that may potentially restore erectile function.
At the Colorado Center for Health and Longevity, Dr. Ian Levenson is proud to be a pioneer in offering GainsWAVE shockwave therapy for ED. Dr. Levenson is experienced and highly trained in men's healthcare, and he has seen firsthand the amazing results that this treatment can provide for his patients.
Considering GainsWAVE? Here are some things you should know about the cutting-edge erectile dysfunction treatment that can help you regain your confidence in the bedroom:
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction occurs when the blood vessels have difficulting bringing enough blood to the penis, which prevents it from becoming erect. Sexual intercourse requires a lot of blood flow to the penis, and if the vessels are not able to dilate (open up) properly, then an erection will not be possible. Over time, this can lead to the development of sexual dysfunction.
While this can be caused by a number of things, such as stress, anxiety, or medications, one of the most common underlying causes of ED is poor circulation in the blood vessels. This can be the result of a number of serious health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, kidney stones, or diabetes.
What Are the Symptoms of Erectile Dysfunction?
If you're struggling with erectile dysfunction, you may notice that you have difficulty getting or maintaining an erection. In some cases, you may be able to get an erection but not be able to sustain it long enough for sexual intercourse. In cases of moderate ED, you may simply find that your erections are not as strong as they used to be.
In cases of severe ED, you may be completely unable to get an erection. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's important to talk to your doctor about your options for treatment. Don't be embarrassed -- erectile dysfunction is a very common problem, and there are treatments available that can help.
What is GainsWAVE Wave Therapy?
GainsWAVE is a type of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) that uses low-intensity shock waves (sound waves) to stimulate blood flow and promote healing. These harmless sound waves are emitted from a wand-like device that is placed on the outside of the body.
As high-frequency waves travel through the skin and tissue, they break up plaque and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels. This increased blood flow can help to improve erectile function by increasing sensation and making it easier to get and maintain an erection.
Low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy has been used for years to treat a variety of health conditions, such as chronic pain, joint pain, and tendonitis. Only recently has it been adapted to treat erectile dysfunction.
How Does GainsWAVE Shock Wave Therapy Work?
During treatment, sound waves are delivered to the penis through a hand-held device. These gentle pulses travel through the skin and penile tissue, stimulating the growth of new blood vessels. This can help with your body's circulation in general, improving penile blood flow.
By increasing blood flow, ED shockwave therapy can help to improve erections. In some cases, it can even help men who have not responded to other types of ED treatment, such as oral ED medications or penile injections.
What Can I Expect From a GainsWAVE Shockwave Treatment Session?
Here's how GainsWAVE treatment sessions typically work at the Colorado Center for Health & Longevity:
- You'll meet with our medical team to discuss your health history, symptoms, and goals for treatment.
- We'll conduct a physical exam and order any necessary tests (such as blood work or a cardiac stress test) to rule out any underlying health conditions that could be causing your ED.
- If we determine that you're a good candidate for GainsWAVE shockwave therapy, we'll create a personalized treatment plan.
- Each session will last about 30 minutes. During this time, sound waves will be delivered to your penis through a hand-held device in order to improve blood flow.
- Most men see significant improvement after 6-12 sessions, but this may vary depending on your individual case.
- We'll closely monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan as you go.
It's important to remember that GainsWAVE utilizes extremely low-intensity shock waves made solely of sound. These waves are 100% safe and painless. In fact, most men report feeling no discomfort at all during treatment.
What Are the Benefits of GainsWAVE?
There are many potential benefits of GainsWAVE therapy, including:
- Improved erections: In a clinical study of men with mild to severe ED, 78% of participants reported improved erections after receiving treatment.
- Increased sensation: Many men also report increased sensation and pleasure after treatment.
- Long-lasting results: The effects of GainsWAVE therapy are typically long-lasting, often lasting for years.
- Non-invasive: Unlike more invasive procedures like penile implants, GainsWAVE is a completely non-invasive treatment with no needles or surgery required.
- No downtime: There is no recovery time needed after treatment, so you can resume your normal activities immediately.
Does GainsWAVE Shockwave Therapy Have Side Effects?
Since GainsWAVE shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction is a relatively new therapy, you may have questions about its safety. In general, GainsWAVE is considered a very safe and well-tolerated treatment with few, if any, side effects when the proper treatment protocol is followed.
Some men may experience temporary bruising or redness at the site of treatment, but this is usually mild and goes away quickly. There have been no reports of serious side effects or long-term risks associated with GainsWAVE ED treatment during clinical trials.
