Erectile dysfunction (impotence) is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sex.
Having erection trouble from time to time isn’t necessarily a cause for concern. If erectile dysfunction is an ongoing issue, however, it can cause stress, affect your self-confidence and contribute to relationship problems. Problems getting or keeping an erection can also be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment and a risk factor for heart disease.
Symptoms of erectile dysfunction:
- Trouble getting an erection
- Trouble keeping an erection
- Weak erection
- Reduced sexual desire

Shockwave therapy is one of the many treatment options for erectile dysfunction (ED). Shockwave therapy or low-intensity shockwave therapy (LiSWT) is a non-invasive, and pain-free method for treating erectile dysfunction.
The pulses trigger improved blood flow and tissue remodeling in the penis. Both of these changes can lead to erections sufficient for sex.
The process is simple. It uses low-intensity shockwaves to treat the issues causing erectile dysfunction. The focused energy from the shockwaves helps to get more blood flowing into your organ for improved erection capabilities and performance.
