Research documents and evidence supporting linear shockwave therapy for ED
Shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction is a relatively new treatment approach; however, there have been a significant number of research papers written about the subject.
One of the most recent and thorough studies was a systematic review published in 2016. This study was conducted by Zhihua v Lu et al, with the objective of reviewing the available studies relating to the therapeutic efficiency of shockwave treatment for erectile dysfunction.
Their review included 14 studies conducted between 2005-2015 involving a total of 833 patients.
Their findings were that most of the studies presented encouraging results, stating that the research studies suggest that shockwave therapy could significantly improve the outcomes for men suffering with erectile dysfunction.
The group that appeared to benefit the most was those with mild to moderate ED, reporting improvements within three months.
“From our review, it is clear that shockwave therapy may have the potential to be the first-choice non-invasive treatment for patients with erectile dysfunction.”
