Shockwave Therapy Q&A
What is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a noninvasive treatment for ED. It uses high-frequency sound waves to increase blood flow to your penis. That increases the production of new and healthy penile tissue while encouraging your body’s natural healing process.
Healthy circulation is essential to your ability to get and keep erections. Shockwave therapy provides an alternative treatment to prescription drugs, and it’s quick, painless, and provides lasting results.
Who is a candidate for Shockwave therapy?
Consider Shockwave therapy at Atlas Men’s Clinic if you have trouble getting or keeping erections long enough to have sex. That’s especially true if your symptoms happen frequently, affect your mental health, and/or compromise your intimate relationships.
What does Shockwave therapy involve?
Shockwave therapy doesn’t require an anesthetic.
Before treatment, you change into a hospital gown and lie on an exam table. Your Atlas Men’s Clinic provider runs a wandlike device over the shaft and head of your penis. The device emits high-frequency sound waves that penetrate your skin, increasing blood flow to the area. Treatment takes about 15 minutes, and you can return to work afterward.
What is recovery like after Shockwave therapy?
After Shockwave therapy, you can return to your normal activities right away. You could experience mild swelling, pain, or redness. Take over-the-counter medication and drink plenty of water. The team might recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours.
Is Shockwave therapy safe?
Shockwave therapy is safe and usually well-tolerated, but it can present risks. For example, after treatment, you might experience:
- Painful erections
- Blood in your urine
- Mild bruising
- Penile curvature
These side effects should go away on their own within a day or two of treatment, but if they continue or worsen, contact your Atlas Men’s Clinic provider.
How long does it take for Shockwave therapy to work?
It usually takes between one and three months to experience the benefits of Shockwave therapy. Some men significantly improve their ability to get and keep erections within a few weeks of treatment.
The Atlas Men’s Clinic team monitors your results with regular checkups. The providers at Atlas Men's Clinic usually recommend a series of six treatments - twice a week - for three weeks.
