Shockwave Therapy Northern Virginia
Non-invasive ED Treatment in Leesburg, VA
Focused Shockwave Therapy, commonly shortened to Shockwave therapy, is a non-invasive erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment that promotes male sexual health. Shockwave therapy uses acoustic wave technology to increase blood flow and regenerate damaged penile tissue. Treatments result in neovascularization, which has been scientifically shown to improve the curvature of the penis and erectile dysfunction. Unlike pills or penis pumps, this therapy targets the cause of ED to restore the erectile mechanism. Shockwave therapy is popular among men who want to attain natural and spontaneous erections and treat ED without pills, pumps, or surgical implants.

Erectile Dysfunction Causes
To better understand how shock wave therapy restores sexual health, it is helpful to understand the physiology of an erection and the causes of erectile dysfunction.
Erections occur when neural signals cause the arteries in the penis to open and fill up with blood. This increases blood pressure, causing the penis to expand and become firm. After orgasm, the arteries constrict (close), and veins open to drain blood out of the penis.
Erectile dysfunction occurs when there are problems with the neurological, vascular, or endocrinal components of an erection. According to the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research findings, “The most common cause of organic erectile dysfunction is vasculogenic causes.” Vascular causes include abnormalities of the arteries (lack of sufficient blood flow into the penis) and/or veins (excessive drainage of blood, known as venous leakage.) Arterial problems are typically caused by the hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis) because of unhealthy lifestyle choices and disease.
How This ED Treatment Works
Scientifically known as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy (Li-ESWT,) this ED treatment utilizes acoustic energy to target the most common cause of erectile dysfunction: poor blood flow. Unlike other ED treatments that provide palliative care by reducing the symptoms of ED, Shockwave therapy actually targets the cause of erectile function.
During the painless, 20-minute procedure, Dr. Taj passes a handheld device that emits acoustic waves over the penis. The emitted waves carry energy into the penile tissue. This acoustic energy is scientifically shown to clear plaque from arteries, increase blood flow, and stimulate revascularization (the creation of new blood vessels.) By creating new blood vessels, removing plaque, and strengthening existing blood vessels in the penis, erectile tissue is regenerated, and erectile mechanism is restored. This results in firmer, longer erections that occur naturally and spontaneously.
Most patients enjoy quality, rigid erection following their shockwave therapy. Incremental improvement in erectile function may be achieved after a few sessions of shock wave therapy. As always, results will vary.*
Shockwave Therapy Risks*
Some people may experience mild side effects after their shockwave therapy for ed. These side effects may include:
- pain at the site during the procedure,
- bleeding or bruising on and around the penis,
- blood in the urine,
- skin infection on the penis,
- painful erection, or
- penile curvature that worsens
As always, experiences will vary per person.*
