When you suffer from Peyronie’s disease and are looking for relief, you may think your only options are prescription medications, injections, or invasive surgery. While these treatment options may be right for some patients, many men prefer a non-invasive treatment that doesn’t come with the risks of surgery or the potential side effects of medications. As you look for a natural, painless treatment for Peyronie’s disease, you should know about shockwave therapy and how it can successfully treat the condition.
What Is Peyronie’s Disease?
Peyronie’s disease refers to a condition characterized by flat scar tissue formation located under the skin of the penis. The scar tissue (also called plaque) often causes the penis to bend, with this curving putting those who suffer from the condition in a great deal of pain. The pain associated with Peyronie’s Disease sometimes prevents men from obtaining or maintaining erection and can even stop men from having sex entirely.
Peyronie’s disease likely won’t go away on its own, as most men experience the same or worsened symptoms when they don’t receive treatment. However, men who receive treatment after the condition first develops often prevent the condition from worsening, and some men even can improve their symptoms with the right treatment. Even if you’ve suffered from Peyronie’s disease for an extended period, some treatments can still improve symptoms like penile shortening, pain, and penile curvature.
What Does Peyronie’s Disease Look Like?
Peyronie’s disease can look different depending on the patient. However, many Peyronie’s disease patients suffer from at least one of the following deformities:
- Narrowing of the penis
- Shortening of the penis
- A penis shaft with an hourglass-like shape
- Indentation to the penis
- A penis that significantly bends downward, upward, or to the side
What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy refers to a non-invasive, painless treatment that employs high-frequency, low-intensity sound waves to treat conditions like erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease. When a patient receives shockwave therapy for ED or Peyronie’s disease, a healthcare professional will move a wand-like device that emits sound waves along the penis.
These sound waves will activate dormant stem cells and growth factors to repair scarring and generate new blood vessels in the penis. The shockwaves will also break down plaque build-up that can clog blood vessels and cause ED.
How Does Shockwave Therapy Treat Peyronie’s Disease?
Since many other treatments for Peyronie’s disease come with the risk of side effects, you may want to consider trying shockwave therapy to treat Peyronie’s disease. During shockwave therapy, the sound waves target plaque build-up that causes penis curvature and other deformities.
These shockwaves will dissolve plaque in your blood vessels and heal scar tissue by releasing dormant stem cells. By directly going after plaque build-up, shockwave therapy directly addresses one of the main causes of Peyronie’s disease symptoms. The treatment’s ability to heal scar tissue and dissolve plaque build-up makes it possible for a patient’s penis to return to its natural shape.
