What causes ED?
There can be several issues that can contribute to ED. The most serious is nerve damage that can have irreparable and untreatable consequences.
The most common and what we treat is Vasculogenic ED. It is insufficient blood to the penis, which makes it difficult to get and maintain an erection. As we get older we have 2 things working against us. 1) our blood vessels and capillaries become clogged with plaque. This can cause the capillaries to completely collapse and cause blockage in the vessels. In addition, our vessels shrink as we get older. So the combination of the shrinking vessels and plaque build up restricts the blood flow.
What can we do when ED symptoms occur?
Up to this point we have relied on symptomatic treatments. These treatments consist of pills, injections, vacuum erection devices, mechanical constriction devices, urethral pellets and penile prothesis. (Quick fixes) Our treatment is considered a Disease Modification Strategy. In short….rather than a quick fix we use the low- intensity sound waves or soft waves to reverse your condition and bring healing and health to this area.
What is acoustical sound wave therapy and how does it work?
Acoustical sound wave therapy has been around since the 1980s. It has been used to treat kidney stones, gallstones, heart problems, fractures and joint inflammation. The first application here in the U.S. was lithotripsy used to break up of kidney stones and gallstones. That treatment method has been in place in the United States since the late 80s. The sound waves used to break up stones were concentrated high intensity waves. Over 12 years ago the Germans after years of research began using it for ED. The ED application uses low intensity sound waves with a broader scope. What was found is…. these low intensity sound waves reduce the plaque in the vessels and rejuvenate the vessels, capillaries and tissue. The treatment can increase the vessels 3 to 4 fold. The results are larger vessels and less plaque which returns blood flow to this area. This is caused by shock wave energy activating signaling pathways. The shock waves tell (or fool) the body that there has been trauma in this area and transmits stem cells to this area. The stem cells are healing cells and they begin to reverse your unhealthy condition. Rejuvenation of the area starts.
What can I expect during my treatment?
Our RN uses the soft wave applicator to apply 1500 to 2000 waves to the penis, testicles and scrotum area. The treatment is painless. The patient has 6 treatments over a 6 week period once a week. Th stem cells will be driven to this are for 8 to 10 weeks. The treatments bring healing and health to this area. We have some patients start feeling the difference after a couple of treatments. Our office is on the 4th floor of the Meridian Trust Building. We only have one patient in at a time. This allows for a comfortable and discreet environment
Who will do my treatment?
Our RN has 15 years of experience in nursing. She has worked in Urology and brings comfort to the treatment process.
In addition to treating ED are there any other benefits from the treatment?
It can reduce Nocturia…urinating multiple times during the night, can reduce swelling of the prostate. Can result in healthier testicles and increase testosterone.
Are there other programs WaveTech offer?
Yes we have a Pre D program… this is for younger men who may be experiencing some or very little ED issues. We offer a 2 treatment program to restore health to this area and offset the onset of ED. It is more precautionary. It can also be used for young guys to counter the effects of diabetes. Diabetes can cause severe plaques build up early in life.
