FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Having erectile dysfunction can be demoralizing for many men, especially those who are younger and may have never had problems in the past. Fortunately, some treatments can help men regain their ability to get an erection and perform in the bedroom, including a treatment called GAINSWave™ therapy. If you’re considering GAINSWave™, here’s some information you should know.
What is the GAINSWave® Procedure?
The GAINSWave® procedure, which is available from The SPARC Center in Columbus, OH, uses acoustic sound waves, or shockwave therapy, to break-up plaques that build-up in the penis and restrict blood flow through this extremity. Restriction of the blood flow can make it difficult for men to get an erection and sustain it while having intercourse.
Instead of being embarrassed by not being able to please their partner, men can get the help they need to have a more fulfilling sex life. Our doctors at The SPARC Center are experts in treating erectile dysfunction. They use GAINSWave® at their offices in Columbus, OH, to help men overcome their blood flow problems.
How GAINSWave® Works
The device that produces ESWT, or Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy, soundwaves is mechanical, not electrical. It produces low-energy soundwaves that are audible to the doctor and the patient. A doctor at The SPARC Center in Columbus, OH, presses it against their appendage and the sound break-ups the plaques men develop as they get older, or prematurely for younger men with ED.
The device that produces these soundwaves has approval from the Food and Drug Administration and, since patients don’t need medications or surgery, it is safer than other ED therapies. Also, the treatments are quick because they only last about 15 to 20 minutes per session. Studies show that ESWT therapy is effective in breaking up plaques and restoring blood flow through the extremity.
What is the Recovery Time After Treatments?
With GAINSWave®, there isn’t any downtime, so you can resume your schedule after your therapy sessions. It only takes about six to 12 sessions to achieve full benefits from the device, and its effects may last up to two years. So, if you have a problem with ED, contact our offices at The SPARC Center in Columbus, OH, and inquire about the GAINSWave® Procedure to improve your love life.
Your SPARC professional will review your symptoms and recommend the right protocol for you.
- Treatments take between 15 to 20 minutes
- No downtime
- Little to no side effects
- Men can expect full benefits after a series of 6 to 12 procedures
- According to research, benefits can last up to 2 years (NCBI).
The Science Supporting the GAINSWave® Procedure
As men age, blood vessels in the penis deteriorate and fill with micro-plaque. When these blood vessels are diminished or damaged, they don’t supply enough blood to the penis to create healthy erections.
For decades, scientists in Europe have been using pulsed acoustic waves known as shockwave therapy, to assist men with Erectile Dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease. GAINSWave® applies acoustic waves to the penis, which breaks up micro-plaque to open existing blood vessels as well as stimulate a natural biological reaction to boost the growth of new blood vessels.
This therapy, commercially known as GAINSWave®, addresses the cause of erectile dysfunction and has been shown to provide effective and long-lasting relief to ED.
