Pulse Wave Therapy for Treatment of ED
What is ED?
At Age Management Center, we dislike the term erectile dysfunction. We prefer the term erectile dissatisfaction. Because for the majority of men, the penis is working to some extent, just not as well as they’d like. And the more the penis malfunctions, the worse the problem becomes. It’s a vicious cycle.
ED is a man’s inability to obtain and/or maintain an erection that is firm enough to engage in sexual relations. For men with ED, the symptoms can be a major physical and emotional challenge, impacting everything from self-confidence to quality of life to relationships.
For the majority of men suffering from ED, the most important areas to focus on are blood flow, improved nerve activity and testosterone optimization (libido). The good news is that we have solutions that address all of these.
Using pulse wave therapy, we have the ability to support healthy blood vessel growth, encourage regeneration in damaged blood vessels and stimulate innervation to the penis, ensuring the penis has all of the proper components in place to achieve strong, lasting erections.
This pain-free, in-office treatment helps men achieve stronger, longer and more powerful erections by increasing blood flow, eliminating plaque build-up, stimulating nerve supply and repairing and regenerating blood vessels.
How does Pulse Wave Therapy (PWT) treatment work?
Pulse wave therapy—sometimes referred to as Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy—is a completely pain-free procedure that uses mechanically induced waves to break up plaque build-up, support healthy blood vessel function and stimulate nerve supply in the male genitals. This procedure helps to improve blood flow in all men—not just those suffering from ED—to help them achieve solid, lasting erections.
We often complement PWT therapy with other treatments offered in-house in order to increase effectiveness. By combining PWT with treatments like PRP-Penile Injection Therapy and testosterone optimization we help men get to the root of the issue while at the same time providing real, tangible results.
Who might benefit from pulse wave therapy?
ED is a common problem for men of nearly all ages and studies show more than half of men experience sexual performance issues as they grow older. According to a report from the Cleveland Clinic, approximately 40% of men face ED by age 40 and that number jumps to 70% by the time men reach 70. Many men have difficulty using common ED medications, such as Cialis or Viagra, due to undesirable side effects. If you struggle with ED or simply want to optimize your sexual performance, pulse wave therapy is an effective, painless, drug-free option to consider.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments required vary by patient needs and goals. Generally, for optimal results, patients will require between six and 12 treatments. We do offer bundle treatment packages with favorable pricing.
Other Factors Leading to ED
ED can be caused by a host of factors such as venous disease, low testosterone, stress, diabetes, hypertension, certain medications and drugs, nerve damage, high cholesterol, neurological diseases, and beyond. That’s why, for men looking to address ED using pulse wave therapy, we also offer a complimentary testosterone screening to understand if there may be other factors at play with regard to your sexual performance.
If you’re considering pulse wave therapy for treatment of ED, are looking for a drug-free, painless solution to support stronger erections, or just have questions about what sexual performance therapies might be right for you, give us a call today to schedule your free, confidential screening.

For some men with Peyronie’s disease, PWT treatment may provide an adjunct for sexual performance. Results aren’t the same for all men.
Peyronie’s disease is a noncancerous condition resulting from fibrous scar tissue that develops on the penis and causes curved, painful erections. Penises vary in shape and size, and having a curved erection isn't necessarily a cause for concern. But Peyronie's disease causes a significant bend or pain in some men. This can prevent you from having sex or might make it difficult to get or maintain an erection (ED). For many men, Peyronie's disease also causes stress and anxiety. Penile shortening is another common concern. Peyronie's disease rarely goes away on its own. Mayo Clinic.
