How to Prepare For Your First Male Shockwave Therapy Session

Featured Image

Male shockwave therapy is an exciting treatment for patients suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED). The procedure uses low-intensity extracorporeal shockwaves to improve blood circulation around the penile area, making it easier for men to produce and maintain an erection. Dr. Thomas Burke and the experts at Burke Wellness in Newark, DE can help you get back the results you deserve through male shockwave therapy.

Here’s a look at how you should prepare for your first treatment.

Discuss your needs and concerns

Before we begin shockwave treatment, Dr. Burke will meet with you to discuss your needs and any concerns you may have. Erectile dysfunction can occur for many reasons, like an injury to the area or a decreased sexual drive. We can assess your situation and determine if you’re a good candidate for this treatment option. Our treatment plan is ideal for patients who have tried other solutions but haven’t received positive results from those efforts.

Request anesthetic as necessary

The shockwave therapy process is simple and mostly painless, as the shockwaves used here aren’t too intense. But you may notice some tingling in the treated area, so you could request an anesthetic to reduce any sensations you may feel during the procedure. We can plan a suitable preparation for the area before we begin.

Plan your treatments ahead of time

You may also require multiple shockwave treatments, although every man will respond differently to the procedure. Some patients require up to 12 treatments at a rate of two sessions per week for a few weeks. You’ll notice the most prominent results after about 1 – 3 months.

Our team at Burke Wellness can help monitor your results, schedule future visits, and provide regular reviews to see how you are responding.

No need to plan for downtime

The shockwave therapy process will not require you to plan any downtime, as it is a noninvasive procedure that doesn’t use needles. You won’t require any medications either. The treatment uses the Alma Duo™ device to effectively apply short pulses of energy to improve how new blood vessels form.

The Alma Duo device produces mechanical stress on the penile area to create wound healing responses that help blood vessels form to restore blood flow. The enhanced blood flow helps the area restore its natural function without producing lots of stress or pressure.
