True Shockwave Therapy versus Radial Wave therapy (What is the difference?)
Focused Shockwave therapy is the “real deal”
Focused waves deliver energy with precision… unlike Radial waves
Focused waves = Deep tissue penetration… unlike Radial waves
Focused waves deliver a very particular energy wave pattern deep into erectile tissue. Sharp spike and trough energy pattern causes the cells being treated to contract then expand and this is the action that is thought to cause the changes that improve erectile function… unlike Radial waves.
Focused waves cause little to no pain… unlike Radial waves
Focused Shockwave Therapy has been proven to improve erections in multiple randomized clinical trials… unlike Radial wave therapy
Don’t be fooled!
Radial wave therapy is not the “real deal”
- * No compelling data to show that it improves erectile function
- Cheaper machine to purchase—means larger profit margin for clinic
- Shallow wave penetration
- No spike and trough energy wave
- Unfocused Radial waves often produce pain and may require numbing cream or nerve block
- More like a massage gun
HOW TO KNOW IF A CLINIC OFFERS “FOCUSED” SHOCKWAVE THERAPY OR RADIAL WAVE THERAPY
Currently, there is only one true Focused Shockwave Therapy device available for use in the US:
Simply ask the clinic which device they use and if it is not the Duolith SD-1 then it is Not Focused Shockwave therapy
- If they won’t tell you then it is most likely Not Focused Shockwave therapy
- If they use numbing cream or nerve blocks—most likely a “Radial Wave” device
OUR SHOCKWAVE THERAPY DEVICE
*Currently the only true “focused” Shockwave therapy device in the US
DUOLITH® SD1 is effectively applied for the treatment for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) of vascular origin, Peyronie’s Disease (IPP) and Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome (CPPS). Scientific studies have proven the healing success of focused shock waves for these indications.
The effectiveness of this modern shock wave equipment is determined by the individually selectable, dynamic and powerful energy range and the therapeutic depth of focus that can be chosen. Deep-lying areas can be treated easily. With its large focus zone it is easy to access these areas with a high degree of accuracy. These technical features also demonstrate the superiority of the treatment in comparison with other ESWT machines: due to the depth of focus, shock waves only have to be applied on one side of the penis.
WHAT IS SHOCKWAVE THERAPY?
History of Shockwave therapy:
- Focused Shockwave therapy was originally developed and used in 1984 as a breakthrough and nonsurgical treatment to break up and remove kidney stones
- Found to reduce inflammation and used in treatment of muscle and tendon injuries
- Found to regenerate blood vessels and is being considered in the treatment of heart disease
- In 2010, Europeans began successfully using Shockwave therapy for the treatment of ED
What it does:
- Focused Shockwave Therapy devices emit pulsed Acoustic Energy waves
- These low intensity acoustic shockwaves are delivered via the handpiece directly into the erectile tissue and blood vessels within the penis producing better blood flow and ultimately better erections. The shockwaves stimulate the body’s own healing response which is why for most men report best results several weeks after treatment.
Focused Shockwave Therapy treats Erectile Dysfunction
- Improves blood flow throughout the entire penis to restore natural erectile function
- Removes micro-plaques within the blood vessel walls…improving blood flow
- Creates new blood vessels to erectile tissue… improving blood flow
- Breaks down scar tissue within the penis and erectile tissue… improving blood flow
Focused Shockwave therapy treats Peyronie’s disease
Peyronie’s disease, is an acquired and generally progressive condition of the penis. Most men notice the presence of the disease when they feel thickened nodules (so-called plaques) under the skin of the penis.
As the disease progresses, pain may occur with or without an erection and the penis becomes curved during an erection, which can make it difficult or impossible to have sexual intercourse. When treating Peyronie’s, the pain points in the penis are treated with focused shock waves
What can you expect
- More full and complete erection
- Longer lasting erection
- Quicker erection recovery rate
- May no longer require PDE5 inhibitor medications (Viagra/Cialis) to achieve and/or maintain an erection
How long does it last?
- Still limited information
- A majority of those treated showed a sustained benefit at 1 year
- A lesser but still majority of those treated showed sustained benefit at 2 years
At Genesys Men’s Health, we recommend regular “touch-up” treatments that may help to maintain long-term benefits.
Most comprehensive Treatment:
- Every Treatment plan will include a full thyroid and hormone (including Testosterone) evaluation and comprehensive lab review
- Every plan will include a full medication and lifestyle evaluation
- Every plan will include “Focused” shockwave therapy (6 to 12 treatments depending on SHIM score)
In addition, your treatment Plan may include:
- Hormone/Testosterone therapy treatment
- Natural thyroid treatment
- Personalized eating plan
- Weight loss reduction/management plan
- Specialized supplement to enhance…
- PDE4 Inhibitors (Cialis/Viagra) as needed to enhance effects
- Penis pump therapy device
Our Patient’s Results
More than 90% of our patients have seen success with our Focused Shockwave therapy Treatment. While this may not be a full cure for everyone, it is uncommon for our patients to be disappointed with their results.
Focused Shockwave therapy has been extensively studied in multiple randomized clinical trials. These trials compare men receiving treatment to men who thought they were receiving treatment but really were not. This treatment has been proven to enhance erectile function in every trial.
