Acoustic Therapy Treatment Q&A
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction or ED is a common problem that makes it difficult to get, keep, or maintain an erection long enough to have sex. Almost every man experiences erectile dysfunction from time-to-time, but if the problem persists, it may point to an underlying health problem like high blood pressure, heart disease, or poor blood flow from plaque build-up.
What is acoustic therapy treatment?
Acoustic therapy treatment, also known as low-intensity shockwave therapy (LISWT), is a noninvasive method of care used to address erectile dysfunction caused by poor blood flow.
Erections require a healthy supply of blood. Anything that limits circulation to your penis can result in erectile dysfunction.
Acoustic therapy directs mild, targeted shockwaves at your penis. This process spurs the growth of new blood vessels and draws stem cells and growth factors to the area. It also breaks up plaque build-up within the penis. When combined, these factors make it easier to get and keep an erection.
What happens during acoustic therapy treatment?
Acoustic therapy treatment for erectile dysfunction is an outpatient treatment, meaning you return home on the same day as your appointment. Before acoustic therapy begins, you change into your underwear and lie face-up on an exam table.
Next, your REDI Diagnostics Corp provider uses a wand-like device to deliver subtle bursts of acoustic energy at your penis. The treatment is quick and comfortable. Ninety-five percent of patients who undergo acoustic therapy describe it as painless.
Following your appointment, you can return to your normal activities right away. There’s no downtime or recovery period.
How many acoustic therapy treatments for ED do I need?
The number of acoustic therapy treatments you need depends on the severity of your erectile dysfunction and its effect on your quality of life. To achieve the best possible results, physicians usually recommend a series of six appointments spaced one week apart.
You might also benefit from follow-up appointments once or twice a year. These treatments can help you maintain your results.
Am I a good candidate for acoustic therapy treatment?
If you’re living with vasculogenic erectile dysfunction, a type of ED caused by poor circulation, you’re probably a good candidate for acoustic therapy treatment.
If your ED is due to nerve damage, pelvic cancer, or psychological issues, acoustic therapy treatment probably won’t work. Your physician explains the benefits of acoustic therapy treatment at REDI Diagnostics Corp based on your condition.
