Details regarding this innovative new therapy for Peyronie's Disease

While a relative newcomer to the treatment of ED, acoustic wave therapy for Peyronie's Disease has already proven to be extremely effective for men suffering from this condition.

Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s Disease is a condition that causes the curvature of the penis when erect. In the early stages of Peyronie’s disease, some men find they can treat their ED problems with PDE5 inhibitors like Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis. Specialists may offer men with a severe case some surgical curved erection treatment options, including a plication procedure to remove abnormal scar tissue and plaque to straighten the penis, plaque incisions with skin graft insertions to correct the curvature of the penis, and plaque excisions and grafting to remove scar tissue and replace it with skin grafts.

Acoustic Wave Therapy for Peyronie's Disease

The advent of acoustic wave therapy for ED has offered possible alternatives to surgery well worth considering for many patents, and the results for treating patients with Peyronie’s Disease suggest the Shockwave treatment may indeed be a viable alternative to surgery and drugs, and may ultimately prove out to be the most effective ED treatment for ED.

Used in orthopedics to help heal broken bones, injured ligaments, and injured tendons, acoustic wave therapy improves wound healing and speeds up tissue repair and cell growth. Used in the treatment of Peyronie’s Disease, acoustic wave therapy stimulates the corpora cavernosa (the penile arteries) and associated nerve tissue. An instrument is used to apply soundwaves to stimulate a mechanical and chemical response in the body.

A typical session lasts 20-25 minutes in blocks of 2000 pulses. A treatment plan of acoustic wave therapy typically involves six sessions, spaced into two weeks, with three sessions a week, or three weeks, with two sessions a week. Patients report increased sensitivity and firmer, longer lasting erections.

Key Benefits of Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy provides a drug free alternative to Viagra and other potency drugs, with more than a short term effect. By treating the cause instead of the symptom, and increasing nitric oxide, an effect similar to PDE-5 inhibitor is created. However, Shockwave therapy also spurs on neovascularization, the breaking up of plaque, the formation of new blood vessels, and nerve regeneration. These features make Shockwave therapy especially attractive to those suffering from Peyronie’s Disease.

Over the course of treatment, patients will begin to see the benefits, and some men experience a marked improvement after only one session. The positive effects of acoustic wave therapy for ED can last up to two years.

If you are suffering from ED problems as a result from Peyronie’s Disease, consult with specialists, discuss your treatment options, and take action.
