Shockwave therapy is one of the most cutting-edge techniques currently being used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), and the team at LaSara Medical Group, with offices in the Sawtelle neighborhood of Los Angeles as well as Tustin, California and Encinitas, San Diego, has more experience performing shockwave therapy than all of its regional competitors in Southern California combined. If you’re interested in shockwave therapy, schedule a consultation at LaSara Medical Group online or by phone today.
In general, shockwave therapy uses shockwaves which are single pulses of energy that travel faster than the speed of sound to stimulate blood flow to the affected area. These shockwaves create new blood vessels, through a process called neovascularization. This process is used to treat conditions like:
Blood flow is vital for achieving and maintaining an erection. When healthy, arteries near your penis open wider when you’re sexually aroused, but when you struggle with erectile dysfunction (ED) or impotence, they may not be able to widen correctly.
Over the last decade, using low-frequency shockwaves has been shown to be effective in treating erectile dysfunction and stimulating blood flow to the penis.
Shockwave therapy is administered by your provider at LaSara Medical Group, and the appointments are generally quick and easy, usually lasting between 25-30 minutes. Men don’t typically find the process painful at all and don’t need anesthesia or any type of numbing cream, and they often only report feeling a slight tingling sensation during the procedure.
When you visit LaSara Medical Group for shockwave therapy, you’ll be asked to disrobe and sit on the exam table. The shockwave handpiece is slid along the shaft of the penis and crura. We use a sonic gel to transmit the painless shockwave energy.
Shockwave therapy has been helping men around the world treat erectile dysfunction for over 10 years, but the long-term upside it offers makes it unique among the traditional treatment options. While oral medication, intracavernous injection therapy, or vacuum devices can be helpful in treating ED, they also work on an as-needed basis and only provide the desired effect for one sexual encounter. These treatments do nothing to address the root issue and won’t make it any easier to achieve an erection in the future.
Shockwave therapy directly targets the mechanism that allows you to attain an erection and makes it easier for you to achieve one on your own over time. It’s also a noninvasive and pain-free treatment option that can fit into any schedule.
If you’re interested in trying shockwave therapy, don’t risk visiting a competitor and receiving an unproven or untested version of the procedure. LaSara Medical Group uses a focused shockwave device that has been studied for 10 years in research and clinical use, unlike other practices in Southern California that use methods and radial devices that haven’t been researched or proven effective.
