Erectile Dysfunction Q & A

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is a condition where it’s difficult to achieve or maintain an erection that’s firm enough for intercourse. While erection difficulties can affect many men at some point in their life, if you’re having chronic difficulties maintaining an erection you may need a medical evaluation.

Common causes of erectile dysfunction include:

  • Stress
  • Obesity
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Use of certain medications of medical conditions, like heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure, can also contribute to erectile dysfunction.

What is Shockwave therapy treatment?

Shockwave therapy treatment is a non-surgical, non-drug therapy for erectile dysfunction that uses shockwave therapy to stimulate the development of new blood vessels and enhance blood flow. 

When the shockwave energy makes contact with the soft tissue of the genitals, it stimulates biological reactions to repair damaged blood vessels and create new ones. With increased blood flow to the penis, you can enjoy healthier, stronger erections and more pleasurable sexual sensations.

Am I a good candidate for Shockwave therapy?

After a careful review of your medical history and identification of the root cause of your erectile dysfunction, Amaro Integrative staff can determine if you are a candidate. If you are a candidate, you will then most likely be a candidate for Shockwave therapy. 

You may benefit from shockwave therapy if you’re in good overall health, don’t have penile implants, and are not currently treating prostate cancer.

How long do the results of Shockwave therapy last?

Results vary, but the improved erectile function may last up to two years.

Dr. Amaro and his staff determine how many treatments you need initially to achieve your desired results. He then creates a treatment plan to help you maintain your results.

What are the benefits of Shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy treatment offers multiple benefits for treating the symptoms and frustration of erectile dysfunction. The noninvasive treatment doesn’t require anesthesia or surgery.

You can enjoy the results that:

  • Improve blood flow to your penis
  • Enhance the quality of your erection
  • Provide stronger, fuller erections
  • Increase sexual performance

Treatment is ideal for men who want to improve their self-confidence and sexual satisfaction without relying on drug therapies or surgical procedures.
