Shockwave Therapy Q & A

What is shockwave therapy?

Shockwave therapy has been utilized for decades to accelerate the healing process of wounds, bone fractures, and inflamed ligaments in individuals. Today, shockwave therapy is used for the treatment of mild to moderate erectile dysfunction in men. 

The erectile dysfunction treatment involves low-intensity sound waves being passed through the erectile tissue, clearing the plaque out of the blood vessels to restore the natural erectile function, and accelerating the growth of new blood vessels. 

What are the benefits of shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction?

Some of the benefits associated with using shockwave therapy to treat erectile dysfunction include:

  • New cell growth within the penis
  • Growth of new blood vessels
  • Non-invasive
  • Low risk
  • No drugs or toxins
  • Increase of penile blood flow

Rather than merely treating the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, shockwave therapy has the proven ability to eliminate the root cause of the condition from the body. 

What can I expect in a shockwave therapy consultation?

After performing your functional medicine assessment, Dr. Rubin will design a personalized treatment plan specifically for your health and erectile dysfunction needs.  He will then conclude whether or not you have the potential to benefit from shockwave therapy to treat your condition. 

Not all cases of erectile dysfunction have the potential to benefit from shockwave therapy, including:

  • ED caused by psychological issues such as low self-esteem
  • ED caused by nerve damage 
  • ED caused by treatments for cancer, such as pelvic cancer surgery

Once Dr. Rubin determines the underlying cause of your condition, he will be able to make an educated decision of whether or not shockwave therapy is a suitable treatment option for you. 

During shockwave therapy, Dr. Rubin will wave a wand over the penis to deliver low-intensity sound waves to the affected area. Each session is only about 15 minutes long, with the majority of patients not reporting any pain at all. 

Dr. Rubin aims to ensure each patient feels valued and comfortable at every point throughout his exams and treatments. Dr. Rubin addresses the needs of every client, understanding that no two individuals are the same with his personalized medicine approach.
