WHAT PHYSIOMD THERAPY CAN DO FOR YOU
EDSWT (Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy) was officially accepted by the European Association of Urology (EAU) as the gold standard for the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction in the EAU 2013 guidelines on Male Sexual Dysfunction.
Over 80% of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) issues are caused by poor blood flow.*
PhysioMD therapy performs a protocol to specifically treat ED, as well as to enhance sexual performance. Our procedure is based on a large series of clinical studies showing a greater than 75% success rate in treating Erectile Dysfunction (ED).
PhysioMD therapy performs Low-Intensity Shock Wave Therapy, which is a scientifically proven, non-invasive procedure that uses low-frequency sound waves to increase blood flow to the penis and optimize erections, sensitivity, and sexual performance. PhysioMD therapy utilizes high frequency, low-intensity sound waves to improve blood flow to the penis. The sound waves repair aged blood vessels, stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and remove decades of micro-plaque. PhysioMD therapy uses a specific protocol designed to optimize efficacy, safety, and results.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PHYSIOMD THERAPY?
Unlike some traditional Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy, the acoustic PhysioMD therapy is virtually painless. There may be a sense of tingling in the penis during treatment, but very little measurable discomfort. Many patients experience enough results from PhysioMD therapy that they are able to stop their current prescription medications.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Shockwave therapy uses energy from acoustic waves to trigger a process called neovascularization in certain parts of the body. When neovascularization occurs, new blood vessels form. This helps improve blood flow to the region.
This type of therapy has been used to help heart patients, people with kidney stones, and those with fractures and joint inflammation. Recently, scientists have investigated low-intensity shockwave therapy to help men with erectile dysfunction (ED).
Blood flow is critical to a man’s erections. When a man is sexually stimulated, arteries widen so that his penis can fill with blood. The blood is what gives the penis the firmness needed for vaginal penetration. A man who has problems with blood flow to the penis may have weaker erections or may be unable to have erections at all.
There are several types of treatments available to men with ED, including pills, vacuum erection devices, and penile injections. However, these therapies are typically conducted on an as-needed basis and may work for only one sexual encounter at a time. Shockwave therapy is different, as it targets the erectile mechanism so that men are more likely to have erections on their own.
To administer shockwave therapy, a clinician applies a probe to the penis, which is coated in a special gel. Different areas of the penis are usually targeted. Treatment sessions may last for fifteen to twenty minutes. Men usually don’t need anesthesia or experience pain, although they might have a tingling sensation in the treated area.
Clinical trials of shockwave therapy for ED have had encouraging results. The process has been well tolerated by patients. Many men have found that their erections have improved and they are able to have intercourse. Men with more severe ED may still need to take ED medication in addition to having shockwave therapy.
One of the most common causes of erectile dysfunction is when men have low blood flow to the penis. When a man becomes erect, his arteries in the penis increase in size and rushes blood flow to the penis. If there is a problem with blood flow to the penis, fewer or inconsistent erections will occur.
PhysioMD therapy uses Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy to regenerate natural blood flow to the penis. Low-Intensity Shock wave therapy uses energy from acoustic waves to trigger a process called neovascularization in the penis. When neovascularization occurs, new blood vessels form. This helps improve blood flow to the penis to help with firmness, and more spontaneous natural erections.
According to recent studies, Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy has a success rate of around 70% on selected men that undergo treatment. This improvement is long lasting in the majority of men. The best results are from men that have erectile dysfunction which is either mild or moderate. This means that PhysioMD therapy can work on men that are on pills or that pills no longer work for.
PhysioMD therapy can also strengthen the erections of men that have the beginning signs of erectile dysfunction. Some men are even able to stop taking their oral medication.

The equipment used to perform PhysioMD therapy is FDA approved. However, this therapy is an off-label application. This form of therapy has been used all over Europe, South America, and Canada for several years.
