WAVE Therapy: As Seen on Men’s Health and Urology Times

With so many erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment options available for men, finding the right one can be difficult and overwhelming. Nonetheless, some men who have not found success with medication or other treatment methods have discovered results with a new, revolutionary therapy for ED. WAVE Therapy is a low-intensity shock wave therapy used to improve sexual performance and prolong erections. The treatment lasts about 30 minutes and delivers meaningful results after the initial round of treatments.

As seen in Men’s Health, WAVE Therapy is a non-surgical and drug-free treatment offered by many urologists and men’s health clinics. A typical session begins with the application of numbing cream. Once the numbness activates, a physician applies the sound wave wand to the penis for about 20 minutes. If you are not sure what to expect from your first session, check out Ben Greenfield’s account of his first experience with WAVE Therapy in Men’s Health.

Urologists believe that WAVE Therapy can become the conventional treatment option for men experiencing ED symptoms or seeking to revitalize their libido. Many doctors will start a basic protocol of 6 treatments over the course of one to two months but the specific recommendation depends on a patient’s specific needs and the personalized treatment plan identified by the doctor. As mentioned in a recent Urology Times’ article, “Shock waves may change the future of ED therapy,” WAVE Therapy does not have a “single gold-standard protocol”, due to varying levels of ED symptoms, and because the cause of ED can differ from man to man.

Understanding Mental Health as You Age

Have you felt more anxious than usual? Are you easily irritated or experience mood swings? As men age they sometimes experience a variety of emotional changes. While some of these changes might be due to the natural drop in testosterone, after the age of 30, more intense emotional changes can sometimes be caused by a deeper, underlying physiological issue. Understanding the link between your physical and mental health as you age can help you decide when it is time to visit a clinic that specializes in male sexual health and performance with expertise treating erectile dysfunction (ED), low testosterone or other sexual health issue.

When sudden drops in testosterone level occur from unexpected environmental or physical changes, it can drastically affect some men’s mental health. Irritable male syndrome (IMS) is a behavioral state that causes some men to become more hostile, impatient, irritable, depressed, or anxious. If you experience a sudden shift in mood, low sexual drive, or other sexual health issue, we recommend visiting a clinic for erectile dysfunction or low testosterone to ensure your hormones are dropping at a normal rate.

Additionally, these drops in testosterone levels may cause drops in stamina, sudden hair loss, or other physical changes that may affect your mental health. If you are uncertain about a symptom being normal, contact Pinnacle Men’s Health in Jacksonville for an all-inclusive confidential consultation with one of our male physicians. Whether you are visiting our clinic for erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, or any other sexual health concerns, you can rest assured that you are in good hands with our all-male staff.
