Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction in Cary, NC
Shockwave therapy is the most advanced non-surgical treatment for erectile dysfunction. Low blood pressure causes erectile dysfunction and shockwave therapy stimulates the blood flow and improves your performance. Shockwave therapy is available at InShape Medical Cary NC.

How can Shockwave therapy help with Erectile Dysfunction?
An injury is treated with shockwave therapy using low-energy acoustic wave pulses that are applied directly to the skin using a gel medium. Several scientific studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of generated shockwaves in the treatment of chronic conditions.
A lingering injury or pain caused by illness can be treated with shockwave therapy. With it, you don’t need painkillers – the therapy triggers the body’s healing mechanism. Following even one treatment, many people report that their pain is reduced, and their mobility has improved.
Ultrasonic pulses, audio-acoustic pulses, and the relatively slow shear wave make up the radial shockwave. The energy of radial pressure waves is greatest at their source and decreases as they travel. The pneumatic system produces radial waves. An air-accelerated projectile is suddenly decelerated by a transmitter, which is held to the treatment area, by use of compressed air. After the kinetic energy is generated, it is transmitted to the tissue where it propagates as a radial wave outwards. The transmitter surface is the area with the highest pressure and density of energy. Patients suffering from plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, or Achilles tendon can benefit from radial pressure waves when the targeted tissue is superficial.
A focused shockwave penetrates deeper into tissue and provides its full power at the specified depth. A cylindrical coil creates opposing magnetic fields when current is applied to generate focused shockwaves. This results in a pressure wave being generated in the fluid medium surrounding a submerged membrane.
With a small focal zone, they propagate through the medium without any loss of energy. Waves disperse an extremely small amount of energy at the site where they are generated. As a result, the skin and underlying soft tissues are less likely to be damaged. Using focused shockwaves is beneficial for treating deeper tissue, such as bone tissue, calcifications, delayed unions, and non-unions. Focused shockwave therapy can also benefit patients who cannot tolerate radial treatments.
Many musculoskeletal conditions are treated with shockwave therapy, primarily those involving connective tissues, such as ligaments and tendons. As well as being effective for sports injuries, shockwave treatment is also useful for work-related injuries, car accidents, and everyday problems.
Shockwave therapy can help with Achilles tendon pain, erectile dysfunction, muscle trigger points, neck and back strains, shoulder tendonitis and calcifications, and much more.
Currently, shockwave technology is the most advanced non-surgical treatment for many injuries. By increasing the blood flow to affected areas, shockwaves accelerate healing and often result in faster pain relief. Additionally, it helps reduce chronic inflammation, stimulates collagen, which connects and supports tissue, and breaks down calcium deposits. Shockwave therapy provides a non-invasive solution for many conditions that would otherwise require invasive surgery or reliance on consistent use of medication.
Shockwave therapy can assist with erectile dysfunction (ED). Vasculogenic ED, which affects blood flow to the penis tissue, seems to benefit most from shockwave therapy.
With targeted sound waves, a small wand-like device stimulates penile tissue and encourages blood flow, speeding up the healing process. Researchers have also shown that low-intensity shockwaves grow new blood vessels and improve blood flow in the penis, which is essential for erections. Improved blood flow and tissue remodeling occur in the penis as a result of the pulses. These changes can result in erections that are sufficient for sexual activity.
