What is Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy?
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy is a protocol utilizing low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy to improve men’s sexual health. Shockwave therapy is an acoustic wave that, when applied to the soft tissue of the male genitals, results in the repair of existing blood vessels and the growth of new blood vessels. This protocol allows the penis to accept more blood, leading to better quality erections.
How does Shockwave Therapy work?
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy protocols utilize a technology known as shockwave therapy that helps promote healing and growth. This treatment sends acoustic waves into the genitals, and through mild shear stress, trigger a series of biological reactions that result in the release of angiogenic factors. In other words, it promotes the repair of existing blood vessels and the creation of new blood vessels, resulting in improved blood flow. Better blood flow translates to better erection quality and sexual performance.
