Shock Wave for ED in Toronto
With an aging population, Canada, including Toronto, is seeing more and more men identifying erectile dysfunction as a more prominent health concern. People are living longer and healthier, so intimacy is desired even further into the life cycle than in previous generations. Men in Toronto have been utilizing shock wave therapy for years for various medical ailments. How do Shock wave therapy and erectile dysfunction relate to each other?
Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) has been used medically to promote healing of bones, and other orthopedic strains. Shock Wave Therapy has also been used to treat kidney stones. At low intensity, Shock Wave Therapy can promote the generation of new blood vessels. This Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy (LISWT) has been used to treat heart conditions, chronic wounds, and peripheral nerve problems, because of this property.
The idea that Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy could help treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED) came from this idea of promoting the growth of new blood vessels in the penis. The logic being, that the subsequent improvement of blood flow to the erectile tissues from shock wave therapy should improve erection quality.
Studies have shown that this theory as it pertains to Erectile Dysfunction and Shock Wave Therapy is true.
Men with erectile dysfunction who underwent a series of treatments with Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy significantly improved their erections and their ability to have intercourse. And the blood flow measurements in the penis were much improved as well. Shock wave therapy is more effective in men who have a Vascular cause for Erectile Dsyfunction as opposed to Neurogenic Erectile Dysfunction (prostate surgery etc.). Vascular causes of ED are often high blood pressure, diabetes, vascular disease, high cholesterol, or just lazy dysfunctional vessels. Vascular and Neurogenic ED often co-exist though.
When used to treat Erectile Dysfunction, Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy has been referred to as Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy ( EDSWT ).

For some men with Erectile Dysfunction who had not responded to medications such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), or vardenafil (Levitra), after Shock Wave Therapy ( EDSWT ), their Erectile Dysfunction did respond favourably to these treatments.
For other men, after Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy, they didn’t require medication to perform anymore. In the initial studies, men who’s Erectile Dysfunction had responded to Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave therapy ( EDSWT ), still reported erections sufficient for intercourse even after 2 years.
Men with Erectile Dysfunction caused by vascular disease or diabetes, will especially find Erectile Dysfunction Shock Wave Therapy to be a novel and effective treatment.

In March 2018 Dr. Aquino attended the World Sexual Health Meeting in Lisbon, and met with other providers and researchers in the field of Shock Wave, from all over the world. The latest data reinforces our experience, and the research, that an initial 6 treatment sessions are effective, but the data also gives a clearer indication that additional sessions are further beneficial to outcomes.
In an optimal world we would suggest the following protocol with a total of 18 treatments:
12 treatment sessions, given either once or twice a week (complete over approximately 6 to 12 weeks).
After an approximate 4 month break (up to 6 months), repeat 6 more treatments.
We understand that time and resources can make this difficult. Therefore we have tailored our options to be flexible. Some men might decide that 6, 10 or 12 treatments are adequate for their needs and regardless, you can economically add treatments later as needed.
