Research Proves That Shockwave Therapy Helps ED Sufferers
Numerous studies have been conducted to assess the efficacy of treating ED with Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (LI-ESWT), and the results are consistently positive. The overwhelming conclusion from more than 30 clinical studies prove the efficacy of shockwave therapy treating erectile dysfunction.
Examining the Impact of LI-ESWT
Here are just a few studies that have measured the impact:
- 2010 – A study published in the European Journal of Urology involved 20 middle-aged men with erectile dysfunction who received LI-ESWT treatment for one month. After the month was over, all participants had an 80 percent improvement in both erection rigidity and quality, which researchers labeled as “extremely encouraging.”
- 2011— A study published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine consisted of men with severe cases of ED which elicited no response from medication including Viagra and Cialis. After the men had received LI-ESWT therapy, researchers said that “a significant improvement in penile hemodynamics was detected… and this improvement significantly correlated with increases in the International Index of Erectile Function.”
- 2013 – A study published in Therapeutic Advances in Urology revealed that LI-ESWT treatment aided in stimulating new blood vessels, and did so without any side effects. According to the researchers: “The results of our studies, which also included a double-blind, randomized control trial, confirm that LI-ESWT generates a significant clinical improvement of erectile function and a significant improvement in penile hemodynamics without any adverse effects.”
- 2014 – A study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Urology involved 112 men who were unable to have sex without the use of medication. After the double-blind, placebo-controlled study was over, researchers concluded that LI-ESWT “can be used as a treatment for men with erectile dysfunction,” and even went so far as to say that it could be a potential cure for ED.
- 2015 – A study published in The Canadian Journal of Urology looked at Indian men who had been taking phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5i) to treat ED. In the double-blind, placebo-controlled study, half of the men received LI-ESWT treatment.
Results found that the shockwave therapy “demonstrated a positive long-term clinical effect with improvement in erectile function of Indian men with vasculogenic ED who were prior responders to PDE5i therapy. The efficacy and tolerability of this treatment, coupled with its long-term benefits and rehabilitative characteristics, make it an attractive new therapeutic option for men with vasculogenic erectile dysfunction.”
- 2016 – In a study published in Translational Andrology and Urology, LI-ESWT was found to be beneficial for men suffering from Peyronie’s disease, which is characterized by curved and painful erections after suffering damage to the penis. The author of the study came to the conclusion that the shockwave treatment should be offered to younger men with Peyronie’s disease, as it “appears to be safe, reduces penile pain, and has some efficacy in improving penile curvature and plaque, with high patient satisfaction rate.”
