Erectile dysfunction affects around 30 million men in the U.S., and although very common, it is not a normal part of aging. In fact, it’s often the result of impaired blood flow to the penis. Fortunately, at Orchidia Medical Group in Naples, FL, we offer GAINSWave, a groundbreaking therapy designed to improve total sexual health. Not only does this therapy stimulate increased blood flow to the penis, but it also breaks up micro-plaque and rejuvenates aged tissues.
Does GAINSWave Really Work?
In a word, yes. And plenty of research substantiates this claim. To illustrate, GAINSWave (GW) has been successfully used in Europe for more than 15 years to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).
In one study of European participants, 40 men with vascular ED received GW therapy once a week for four weeks. Meanwhile, 36 other men in a control group received a placebo treatment. The men were checked at three- and six-month intervals. Those receiving GW reported a significant improvement in ED compared to men in the control group.
Supported by Science
Another study reviewed the effects of GW on 20 patients who had grappled with ED for more than two years. The men underwent 12 treatments that each lasted 20 minutes. Around 80% of those men witnessed improvements in their erections. The researchers then concluded that GW can be used safely and effectively on patients who do not respond or have poorly responded to other ED treatments, including medication.
Yet another study of 31 participants with moderate to severe ED tested the safety and efficacy of GW over four weeks. Again, the conclusions showed GW positively affects erectile function both clinically and physiologically. The researchers additionally noted treatment is easy to administer with no side effects.
What Is GW?
When we think of ED treatment, we tend to envision oral medications that might temporarily assist with erections but then gradually fade. These medications also come with a long list of unwanted side effects, including:
- Hot flushes
- Dangerous drops in blood pressure
These effects can take away from the pleasures of intercourse and must be repeatedly endured each time the medication is taken. But GW works as a high-tech solution rather than a biological medication. What we mean is that it bypasses the pathological causes of ED to restore the physical ability to hold an erection. And in this way, GW addresses the root causes of ED – rather than simply mask symptoms – to improve long-term health.
How It Works
GAINSWave is based on extracorporeal shock wave therapy. You might be panicking at the idea of sending shock waves through one of the most sensitive areas of your body, but you can rest assured the waves are acoustic. This means treatment uses a high-frequency, low-intensity vibration emitted by sound waves to:
- Stimulate the growth of new blood vessels
- Open existing blood vessels in the penis
- Eliminate micro-plaque
Together, these effects stimulate blood flow to achieve harder and more sustainable erections. With age, blood flow to the penis decreases. Likewise, micro-plaque can build up and cause lumps, bumps, and even a drop in size. Blood vessels become thin and sensitivity also diminishes. But GW can rejuvenate aging tissues and reverse these effects – and do so with a treatment that is absolutely pain-free.
What To Expect
In just six to 12 20-minute sessions, you can enjoy enhanced sexual performance without the worry of hospital stays or extensive recovery periods. Immediately after your session, you can get on with your day. You have no risk of treatment negatively interacting with medications you might be currently taking. And GW boasts a success rate of 75%, with most men reporting stronger and harder erections. Some even witness an increase in size.
The time necessary for GW to work varies from one patient to another. Some men report significant improvements after just one session while others undergo multiple treatments. Factors that affect how long it takes GW to work include medical history, age, and severity of ED. Results typically last for two or three years, and we can provide maintenance sessions as needed once your initial treatment plan is completed.
Before we start treatment, we’ll conduct a thorough consultation to learn more about you. We’ll ask questions, gather information, and expect you to ask questions as well. During this time, we’ll also have a frank discussion about your sexual health – especially any concerns you point out like significantly slow refractory periods, an inability to form or hold an erection, and a lowered sex drive. After you share your goals, we’ll help determine if GW is right for you.
Rest assured we’ll take our time during this process. To illustrate, we’ll ask a number of questions about current and past medical issues, any medications or supplements you take, and treatments you’ve previously tried for ED. We’ll pay particular attention to heart-related issues like high cholesterol or high or low blood pressure. If necessary, we’ll also consult with your primary care physician before starting GW treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Many men wonder why they’ve never heard of GW until now. Although it’s quickly spreading, this treatment is still relatively new in the U.S. Despite its relative youth, GW has been featured in such popular media outlets as Fox News and Men’s Health Magazine.
We’re also commonly asked if GainsWAVE is safe, and we’re happy to say it is the safest and most reliable ED treatment available to men. It is non-invasive, drug-free, and pain-free (as mentioned earlier). Equally important, you’ll have just a small list of aftercare steps to follow. For instance, we often recommend patients rest the treated area for 24 hours.
What Kind of Results Can Be Expected?
Men who undergo treatment can expect such results as increased morning, nighttime, and spontaneous erections as well as improved sexual performance. You can also look forward to:
- Better orgasms
- Enhanced sensitivity in the penis
- Improved stamina of erections
Is Shockwave Therapy Used To Treat Other Conditions?
Shockwave therapy has been used in medicine for a number of years. From treating muscle pain to breaking up kidney stones, it uses pulsating sound energy to harness the body’s own healing powers.
Plaque can form in blood vessels throughout the body, not just in the penis. Sound waves break up that plaque and also stimulate the growth of stem cells. Thanks to such effects, shockwave therapy can successfully correct conditions like tennis elbow, shin splints, and hip bursitis. It’s also ideal for treating heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and patellar (knee) tendonitis.
Is Treatment Embarrassing?
Not at all. Our staff has worked with countless men experiencing ED, and the relief we can provide with GW is invigorating rather than embarrassing. Our staff is both professional and discreet, allowing patients to feel comfortable throughout the treatment process.
We understand improved sexual function is important to many men, and with this in mind, we effectively use protocols that address the underlying causes of declining sexual performance. Patients reliably leave our office with increased sexual satisfaction and improved erectile function.
Benefits of GW
The benefits of GAINSWave therapy are diverse, starting with the fact that it relieves ED. Erectile dysfunction can feel like a leash that keeps you from enjoying life to the fullest. This treatment unhooks the leash and allows you to enjoy total sexual freedom.
GW also improves erection quality, which depends primarily on steady blood flow. This includes the ability of blood to travel undeterred to your penis without encountering any blockages. GW breaks down even small pockets of micro-plaque to improve the quality of your erections and the length of time they last.
Shorter Refractory Period
The refractory period is the amount of time that passes between erections. As blood flow decreases with age, men tend to lose the ability to quickly regain an erection. GW restores your refractory period to give you a renewed interest in sex and help you regain an erection more quickly.
Boost in Confidence
Men often associate their ability to hold an erection with their manhood, and nothing is quite as emasculating as the inability to achieve and/or hold an erection. GW can boost your confidence and restore your self-esteem by addressing the causes and symptoms of ED.
As your erection quality increases, and you enjoy a shorter refractory period, your sexual performance will naturally improve as well. This can give another needed boost to your ego so that before you know it, you’ll have a small, satisfied smile on your face all day.
Enjoy a More Permanent Solution
GW treatments are safe, simple, and effective and can be completed in just 20 to 30 minutes. You’ll have no expensive prescriptions to refill or pills to take, and your ED will be treated at the root cause rather than by masking symptoms. Results can last for several years and be maintained with easy follow-up sessions. Schedule your consultation today by contacting Orchidia Medical Group in Naples, FL.
