Focused Linear Compression Therapy from Spine & Extremities Center is different than any other method used to treat your erectile disfunction. It’s highly effective, non-surgical, and pain free.
This low-intensity shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment regimen that results in new blood vessel growth and improved connective tissue health for improved erectile function. Many patients who fail to respond to ED medications are good candidates for shockwave therapy. You must be diagnosed by your primary care provider or urologist prior to seeking this treatment.
Piezo shockwave technology has provided a breakthrough in the treatment for erectile dysfunction and Peyronies disease by providing a non invasive, non pharmaceutical option. Our Piezo wave technology offers unique therapy source designs to meet the specific needs of each condition.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) uses a unique set of compression waves to the treatment area which result in neovascularization. This repairs aged blood vessels and removes micro-plaque which have been built up over years, allowing the patient to achieve and maintain erections.
The mechanical energy of the shockwaves is generated extracorporeally and transferred in a focused manner into the diseased target tissue. There, the mechanical stimulus is converted into positive, therapeutic acting biochemical signals that help the body to repair altered tissue and initiate tissue regeneration.
The treatment protocol varies depending on the IIEF-5 test which is provided at your first visit. All therapies are performed on an outpatient basis without anesthesia. Each treatment is painless and takes about 15-20 minutes. The therapy head is positioned on the skin and then moved following the anatomical course of the target tissue.
The initial treatment protocol is 6 sessions over a 6 week period. Follow-up sessions are usually every 3-6 months thereafter if you have a good therapeutic response.
This treatment package includes 6 treatments with Shockwave Therapy over 4-6 weeks.
This single session is for established patients who underwent the 6 session treatment program that need on-going maintenance treatments to maintain results.
Shockwave Therapy is considered a regenerative elective procedure and therefore is not covered by medical insurance.
No. The treatment and regulation of the intensity is done in constant communication with the practitioner. If something becomes uncomfortable, the intensity can be adjusted immediately.
Every patient course of disease is different. Number of treatments depends on previous illnesses, concomitant diseases, duration and severity and are therefore difficult to make.

AS with all other treatment options, shockwave therapy is not an option for everyone. There is a simple reason for this: the causes of erectile dysfunction are varied - and a careful diagnosis is important to achieving the goal of the therapy. In principle, shockwave therapy is indicated for vascular erectile dysfunction. Shockwave therapy can also be a good option if drug therapy is not an option because of possible side effects.
Patients with active tumor disease, recent radical prostatectomy, penile prostheses. coagulation disorders, hypogonadism, and patients on blood-thinning medication. The decision to utilize shockwave therapy despite any contraindications that may be present is at the sole discretion of the attending physician.
