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.
If you want to learn more about GAINSWave therapy, here are some of the questions our clients frequently ask us.
The GAINSWave™ procedure uses acoustic wave therapy to open blood vessels in the penis to allow blood to flow and men to get and sustain erections. The treatments last about 15 to 20 minutes and involve using shockwaves applied through a wand to the penis.
This therapy breaks up micro-plaque that clogs the small vessels in the extremity as men age. It can also stimulate the area and allow for new blood vessels to form and grow. These treatments take place in our doctors’ offices at The SPARC Center in Columbus, OH, and they don’t require drugs or surgery, so they are free from side effects.
GAINSWave™ therapy sessions only take about 15 to 20 minutes per session. How many sessions you’ll require depends on the severity of your condition and the cause of your dysfunction. Most men will realize the full benefit of getting the therapy from one of our doctors at The SPARC Center in six to 12 sessions.
When you have the GAINSWave™ therapy at our facility nearby in Columbus, the treatment can last up to two years, according to studies regarding the therapy.
