Being unable to perform in the bedroom is frustrating and embarrassing for many men. It can cause them to stop trying to please their partners because they don’t want to keep failing them. Fortunately, doctors can use a treatment known as GAINSWave™ for erectile dysfunction (ED) or GAINSWave ed treatment. If you are looking for doctor for GAINSWave treatment near you, then contact us now.
In most cases, the cause of erectile dysfunction, or ED, is blood flow to the extremities, like the penis, becomes restricted. While the restriction may have medical causes, such as high blood pressure, plaques can also form and clog the blood vessels. When blood cannot flow through the penis, sexually active men may not be able to get and sustain erections.
GAINSWave™ treatments use pulse acoustic sound waves, or shockwave therapy, to break-up the plaques restricting the blood flow in the penis. While the traditional treatments for ED usually involve oral medications like Viagra or Cialis, more severe cases may call for surgical intervention.
Fortunately, neither surgery nor prescription drugs are necessary with GAINSWave™. Our gainswave doctors near you at The SPARC Center in Columbus, OH, can apply the wand of the shockwave device directly to the penis to allow the sound waves to work and break-up plaques clogging the blood vessels. This device can also help stimulate the growth of new blood vessels that can carry blood throughout the penis.
The machine that our doctors use to administer this treatment is FDA approved. In fact, it’s the only device of its kind that’s approved for treating ED. So, if you’ve tried drug treatments before for ED and they’ve failed, you should consider arranging a consultation with our doctors to see if you’re a good candidate for trying GAINSWave therapy treatment.
The number of office treatments will depend on the severity of your dysfunction. Some men who’ve tried Viagra or Cialis experience worsening dysfunction because these drugs do not always have a good success rate. Viagra may only work 27 percent of the time for men who try it.
Fortunately, GAINSWave™ has far better outcomes, and it doesn’t have the same side effects as taking oral medications. Most men experience full benefits with GAINSWave™ in six to 12 sessions. If you have ED, contact The SPARC Center in Columbus, OH, to ask about GAINSWave therapy treatment.
Erectile dysfunction can be more than emasculating; it can ruin your quality of life. For many years, men with ED have resorted to oral ED medications to relieve their symptoms. While oral medications for erectile dysfunction can be effective for temporary relief of the symptoms of ED, they don’t target the root cause of most patient’s ED and can often bring unwanted side effects.
We know that as men age, the vessels in the penis weaken, contract, and fill with micro-plaque just as they do elsewhere in the body over time. As men age, the penis decreases in sensitivity, making it harder to achieve a pleasurable orgasm. Patients also tend to report increased or worsened refractory time between sexual activity. The bottom line is that most erectile dysfunction is a result of poor blood flow, known as vasculogenic ED.
There have been countless studies, going back decades, showing Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (Li-ESWT) to be incredibly useful for treating ED. Success rates have been reported up to 76% (Therapeutic Advances in Urology), and even one study, published in the Scandinavian Journal of Urology, which claimed that this could be “a possible cure” for ED in some patients!
GAINSWave™️ uses pulsed acoustic waves, known in Europe as shockwave therapy, to address the root cause of poor sexual performance for men – poor blood flow. By expanding existing blood vessels in the penis and creating new avenues for more blood to flow into the penis, GAINSWave™️ produces healthier, fuller, and more sustained erections for men with and without erectile dysfunction. Results for this type of therapy have been shown to last up to two years (NCBI), much longer lasting than the typical ED treatments available.
Among the most popular ways to treat erectile dysfunction, oral medications such as Viagra and Cialis are relied upon too much, and often cause unwanted side effects, such as nasal congestion, headaches, upset stomach, vision changes, facial flushing, and dizziness. They also only serve as a temporary ‘band-aid’ solution, having to be taken before intercourse. Young men are turning to these drugs for performance, leading to dependence, causing sexual dysfunction.
Depending on the severity of ED, The Journal of Urology reported oral ED medications to yield as low as a 27% effective rate, leaving patients with more severe ED to more invasive and dangerous treatments like penile (intracavernosal) injections of drugs like TriMix, where medication is injected directly into the penis before intercourse. Amongst the dangerous side effects, are priapism, an erection lasting hours beyond sexual stimulation, sometimes forcing patients to go to the emergency department to drain blood from the penis.
The good news is that studies had shown shockwave therapy to be effective when patients did not respond to oral ED medications (BJUI). GAINSWave™️ offers patients effective and safe relief to their erectile dysfunction symptoms, reviving spontaneity, and providing a longer-term solution. Additionally, it can address Peyronie’s Disease and optimize sexual performance.
