The ED Remedy You Haven't Heard About: Shock Wave Therapy

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects approximately 40% of men at age 40, and nearly 70% of men are affected at age 70. More than 600,000 new cases of ED are diagnosed each year in the United States alone. Although the front line of treatment for ED is typically an oral medication like Viagra®, many men find performance-enhancing drugs ineffective, inconvenient, or unsafe.

Fortunately, alternate treatments for ED exist. Dr. Lamia Gabal at Prestige Medical Group can help you overcome your sexual health issues with safe, effective shock wave treatment that helps restore normal sexual function.

What causes ED?

Male sexual arousal can be affected by the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Causes of ED may be linked to any of these, and stress or mental health concerns can contribute to the problem.

Physical causes of ED

The following physical conditions can cause ED or make it worse:

Psychological causes of ED

Some people may experience a combination of physical and psychological issues that are causing and worsening their ED symptoms.

Treatment for ED

Treatment for ED can include oral ED prescriptions, such as Viagra or related medications. These must typically be administered a certain time period before pre-planned sex, which can ruin spontaneity. These medications can also cause erections that last after ejaculation is achieved, which can be uncomfortable for some men.

Most oral ED medications are unsafe for men who have conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes, and don’t work on ED conditions like Peyronie's disease. However, if you are among the men who either cannot take or will not benefit from oral ED medication, don’t give up hope.

GAINSWave® erectile dysfunction treatment

GAINSWave is a clinically proven, non-invasive therapy specifically developed for men searching for a safe, effective, alternative treatment for ED. The device sends gentle, low-intensity shock waves through the penile tissue, helping to dissolve plaque build-up and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels.

The pulsating waves also trigger dormant stem cells and growth factors to male erectile rejuvenation, resulting in erections that are stronger, harder, and more sustainable before and during sexual activity.

GAINSWave therapy is safe for men with heart disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure who cannot take oral ED medicine, and also is effective in treating Peyronie’s Disease. If you are ready to regain your sexual confidence, call our office at 949-339-1336, or request an appointment online.
