Say Goodbye to ED: How Shockwave Therapy Offers A More Permanent Solution


Reviewed by Bruce Hamby, PA-C 

Most men don’t want to talk about it, but sexual dysfunction is a common condition many guys deal with at some point. In fact, roughly 40 percent of men experience ED when they reach 40 years of age or older, and that number increases to 70 percent by age 70. 

How do you know if you have ED?

Common symptoms of ED include:

  • Difficulty getting an erection
  • Difficulty maintaining an erection long enough for sexual intimacy
  • Having erections that are not hard enough for penetration
  • Loss of erection after penetration
  • Unsatisfactory intercourse
  • Low libido/sex drive

What causes ED?

ED isn’t simply a result of aging. It can be caused by a variety of factors including:

  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Low testosterone levels
  • High blood pressure
  • Enlarged prostate
  • Stress, physical and emotional
  • Medications and drug use
  • Smoking and heavy drinking

How Shockwave Therapy Works for ED

Shockwave Therapy is a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment for Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease without surgery or pills. It uses low-intensity, painless shockwaves, to repair and reopen blood vessels, dissolve micro-plaque buildup and invigorate blood flow – so you’re always ready to go without having to rely on a pill.

What are the benefits of Shockwave Therapy?

Over 75% of men who received treatment experience positive results with benefits lasting up to 2 years.

  • Harder and longer-lasting erections
  • Increased sensation and sensitivity in the penis
  • Greater sexual performance
  • Enhanced sex drive/libido
  • Non-invasive, all-natural, no drugs or surgery
  • Safe if you have heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes
  • More spontaneous erections
  • More intense orgasms
  • No major side effects with zero/minimal recovery time
  • Body won’t build up a tolerance
  • Benefits can last up to 2 years

Peyronie’s Disease Correction

Peyronie’s Disease isn’t as common as ED, affecting about 1 in every 11 men, but it can still be incredibly painful. 

Peyronie’s Disease occurs when scar tissue develops beneath the surface of penile skin, which can cause the penis to bend or curve a certain way when erect. This scar tissue build up can cause significant pain during sex and in everyday life.  Sometimes the causes are unknown, but generally, the root cause of this scar tissue can include:

  • Trauma from sex
  • Trauma due to injury
  • Penile Injections
  • Genetics

Though PD can be painful with an erection, pain can still occur even without one. Even worse, the body can develop erectile dysfunction as a defense mechanism against potential pain caused by PD. Fortunately, Shockwave Therapy is an effective treatment for this condition.

Much like with erectile dysfunction, Shockwave Therapy’s pulsed acoustic waves break up fibrous scar tissue that has accumulated under the skin to eliminate the root cause of the curvature and other symptoms associated with PD. As the old scar tissue gets eliminated, new and healthy tissue take its place to prevent pain and allow for more enjoyable sex. 

Premature & Delayed Ejaculation

Even if you don’t have anything physically wrong with your penis, Shockwave Therapy can still be used as a way to ensure you’re performing at your best in the bedroom. One of the most common, often non-physical issues associated with performance involve problems with premature or delayed ejaculation. 

Though premature ejaculation can be qualified as a medical condition, most men don’t meet the criteria needed for an official diagnosis. However, millions of men deal with some form of premature ejaculation with about 1 in 3 men saying they’ve experienced it during intercourse or masturbation. However, given its sensitive subject matter, that number may be even higher. 

Delayed ejaculation is on the opposite end of the spectrum, indicating that it takes men an abnormally long amount of time to achieve orgasm. Though the conditions are different, the frustrations are very similar. It can lead to both physical fatigue as well as feelings of shame and embarrassment. 

Shockwave Therapy for Performance Enhancement

With Shockwave Therapy, you aren’t just improving the physical shape of your penis, you’re also increasing blood flow and sensation in the area.

Shockwave Therapy can also help improve all aspects of your performance. You don’t need to be suffering from any sort of condition to seek treatment! Because let’s be real, we all want to be at our best and perform our best not just for ourselves, but for our partners as well. By building new collagen in the penis and removing any micro plaque buildup, we can increase sensation in the head and shaft. This helps guys experience better orgasms and last longer during sex.

Even if you’ve never experienced issues with erectile dysfunction, Peyronie’s Disease, or premature ejaculation, Shockwave Therapy can still be useful for maintenance. The best way to stop a potential issue is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Shockwave Therapy can help make a good thing better and ensure you experience continued satisfying sexual experiences. For those that have received Shockwave Therapy in the past, we recommend occasional treatments to maintain your results. 

How Do I Start Treatment?

The first step to get in touch with your Forum Health provider. We’ll schedule an appointment to address all of your needs and concerns before recommending a treatment plan. 

The treatment is FDA-approved, safe, and has been utilized with great success in Europe for over 15 years. Generally, patients will need anywhere from 6 to 12 treatments to experience the full benefits of Shockwave Therapy. The treatment itself lasts anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes and is noninvasive with little to no discomfort, meaning that patients do not need an anesthetic prior to treatment. 

After completing your therapy sessions, you should expect the results to last anywhere from 1 to 3 years. Results can last even longer with continued maintenance.
