Low Intensity Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (LiSWT) is a non-invasive procedure that involves the application of low intensity shock waves to a specific area of the body.
It is commonly used to treat erectile dysfunction in men, as well as some musculoskeletal conditions. The shock waves are thought to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels and improve blood flow to the area, which can help improve the symptoms of erectile dysfunction or other conditions.

Low Intensity Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy works by delivering shock waves through the skin to the targeted area, which then breaks down the calcium deposits in the tissue, promoting blood flow and tissue regeneration.

At Verve Men’s Clinic, we are the first service in Regional Queensland to offer this innovative treatment option for men who suffer from erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction is a common condition that affects millions of men worldwide, and it can significantly impact the quality of life of those affected.

Although there are various treatments available for erectile dysfunction, such as oral medications and penile injections, not all men respond to these treatments or may have adverse side effects. Low Intensity Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy for erectile dysfunction is a relatively new treatment that has shown promising results in clinical trials.

How is Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy Administered?

The treatment involves delivering low-intensity shock waves to the penis, which improves blood flow and tissue regeneration. This ultimately leads to the improvement of the patient’s sexual function and quality of life.

The procedure itself is straightforward and non-invasive, with no need for anaesthesia or surgery. The patient will lay on a table, and the shock waves will be applied to the targeted area. The entire procedure usually takes around 20-30 minutes, and there is no downtime required after the treatment.

Low-intensity shockwave therapy is most effective if it is given as a course of treatments. So at Verve Men’s Clinic, we advocate that best results are obtained when a patient undergoes two sessions per week, over four weeks (eight sessions in total).

What Are the Benefits of Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy?

One of the significant benefits of LiSWT, is that it is a safe and effective treatment option for men who have erectile dysfunction due to various causes, including age-related erectile dysfunction, vascular erectile dysfunction, and post-prostatectomy erectile dysfunction.

What Are the Side Effects of Low Intensity Shock Wave Therapy?

LiSWT has no known side effects and can be repeated as necessary, making it an excellent first line treatment for men with erectile dysfunction, repairing the underlying issue rather than just treating the symptoms of an issue like medications do. It can also complement medication treatment, making them more effective.
