Is shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction painful?

Despite the name focused shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction is not painful. Shockwaves are in fact sound waves that have an analgesic effect and therefore the treatment is reported as being very comfortable. It is important that if you do feel discomfort during the treatment you let your medical practitioner know so they can adjust the shockwave intensity accordingly.

A mild aching pain may occur a few hours after treatment, this can last for a day or so. If necessary patients may take ordinary prescription-free painkillers but do not take anti-inflammatory medication or apply ice to the treated area as both may interfere with the body’s self-healing processes.

How many treatments will I need?

We recommend a minimum of 6 twenty-minute sessions over a three week period. As there is no ‘one size fits all’ for any medical treatment the number of sessions will largely depend on the severity of ED, the presence of any other medical conditions and individual patient responses to treatment.

Are the results of shockwave therapy for ED permanent?

The biological effects of shockwave therapy are permanent and have been scientifically proven. However, erectile dysfunction can be caused by a number of factors and those factors will determine if and when the condition can reoccur.

Lifestyle factors or underlying health conditions could cause the problem to resurface in time if they are not resolved.

Results can not be guaranteed and may vary from individual to individual.
