There are several types of sexual disorders that affect females and males. Examples of male sexual dysfunction include erectile dysfunction, orgasm/ejaculation disorders, and chronic pelvic pain.

Erectile Dysfunction

Impotence, or erectile dysfunction, is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is able to maintain sexual activity. Usually this problem is related to an issue with a decreased blood supply to the penis and/or muscle weakness.

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has been used for the treatment of vascular erectile dysfunction since 2010. During treatment, low-intensity shock waves are applied to different areas of the penis. This stimulates the creation of new blood vessels in the cavernous bodies and improves blood flow in the penis (and the ability to achieve an erection).

The simple and painless treatment is performed by a specialist. Many patients report a noticeable improvement of their ability to achieve an erection within a few weeks.

Symptoms  Unable to achieve a full erection adequate for sexual activity
Treatment  Medications, lifestyle improvements, physical therapy, injection therapy, vacuum constrictive devices, penile prostheses (implant inflatable device), surgery and Shockwave Therapy

Peyronie’s Disease

Peyronie’s disease is characterized by a plaque, or hard lump, that forms on the tissue of an erect penis. The plaque often begins as an inflammation that may develop into a fibrous tissue.

Symptoms  Bending, indentation, and shortening of the penis that coincide with painful erections
Treatment  Vitamin E, Surgery, trigger point injections, radiation therapy, Shockwave Therapy

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome

Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) is characterized by pain in the region of the pelvic floor. Some patients experience erectile dysfunction and extracorporeal Shockwave therapy is performed using a perineal approach, treating the prostate and the pelvic floor.
