How does GainsWave work?




A promising new procedure known as shockwave therapy is becoming the noninvasive, pill-free, game-changing fix in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED).

ED is a condition that affects 50% of men between the ages of 40 and 70 according to experts.

Officially called low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT), the procedure is more commonly known as shockwave therapy. 



What causes erectile dysfunction (ED)?

Many different systems must come together for you to get and maintain an erection. Your emotions, your muscles, your hormones, your brain, your nerves, and more could play a major role in ED and in your sexual health.

essentially, when plaque builds in the blood vessels that serve the penis, it becomes more difficult to get and maintain a hard erection. It can also create a lack of sensitivity in your penis, making it challenging to orgasm.

Most cases of erectile dysfunction are caused by blood flow issues in the penis, scrotum, and prostate. Factors such as obesity, heart disease, high blood pressure, and clogged blood vessels can all contribute to this. Unfortunately, the PDE5 inhibitors used for ED do not actually address the cause of these issues. Instead, all they do is temporarily increase the flow of blood reaching the penis and other affected areas, spurring an erection. This leaves the root of the problem ignored – meaning the solution isn’t really a solution at all and warrants another dose the next time you need an erection.




Why consider GainsWave therapy?

There have been numerous scientific studies to support the results of shockwave treatment of ED. An entire discussion by the US National Library of Medicine. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) covers many of them in great detail. Perhaps the study in 2012 conducted by Vardi et al. was the most comprehensive and best documented.  Of the sixty ED patients studied in the clinical trial, most of the men have been routinely re-evaluated for more than two years and they all report that the beneficial response that was achieved immediately after the shockwave therapy has not diminished.




How does GainsWave work?

GAINSWave™ utilizes what is known as low-intensity extracorporeal shock wave therapy (LI-ESWT). These shock waves are actuary acoustic waves that carry energy and they can be targeted and very focused on the blood vessels that cause erectile dysfunction in many men. Although it may sound extremely complicated, the following physiological process is what actually takes place: -  The LI-ESWT is focused and interacts with the targeted area to cause mechanical stress and microtrauma. - This micro-trauma (or stress) results in biological reactions that release what are medically known as angiogenic factors. - These angiogenic factors then initiate the neovascularization of the area that leading to an increased blood supply to the affected area. - Finally, the increased blood supply results in a marked improvement of the ED patient's ability to achieve a natural or spontaneous erection (plus maintain his erection).

Before starting the therapy, your doctor will review your medical history and perform a thorough physical examination. The doctor will also "interview" you about your personal and sexual history. 

The number of treatments varies from patient to patient, but typically 6-12 treatments are recommended. Each session lasts only about 20-30 minutes, yet the benefits have been shown to last for as long as up to two years.
