Effect on Erectile dysfunction
Extracorporeal Shockwave therapy can also cure Erectile Dysfunction (ED). Erectile Dysfunction can be of different types and the most common types are Psychogenic ED and Vasculogenic ED. The use of medication for Erectile Dysfunction is not a permanent solution. Nowadays if somebody has Erectile Dysfunction then the best therapy which is recommended by a Urologist is ESWT.
ESWT helps in Erectile Dysfunction by neovascularization of the penis (formation of new blood vessels). New vessels will increase the blood supply to the penis. Due to age and other natural consequences of life, vessels become prematurely hardened or begin to centrally close up. ESWT also regenerates the pre-existing vessels that are closed.
Healthy tissue inside the corpus cavernosum is capable of considerable enlargement in both girth and length when you have a healthy erection. But when you have Erectile Dysfunction for a very long period of time your penis loses its ability to expand because its tissue becomes very weak. ESWT helps to restore its elasticity and its ability to fill and maintain blood flow for a full and long erection.
Additionally, Shockwaves attract stem cells into the penis which are beneficial for the repair of damaged tissue. Effectively focus shock waves treat the root cause of Erectile Dysfunction which is a vascular disorder. With ESWT we restore your ability to have a natural and spontaneous erection again.
