How GAINSWave Can Help With Peyronie’s Disease
We get a lot of questions around here from our patients, and while we answer most of them in office as they happen, some seem worthy of a little more information.
Lately, there seems to have been a lot of interest and questions about Peyronie’s Disease and how it can be treated. We talked to our doctors and got the rundown on what it is, how it can be treated, and what you can do if you’re suffering from it.
What is Peyronie’s Disease?
Peyronie’s is a condition where the penis begins to grow fibrous tissue (or scar tissue) which in turn forces it to begin bending upwards when erect. The bend can be minor or serve, but in almost all men it creates a painful curve that makes sex difficult or impossible.
What Causes It?
There is a range of causes and most of the causes are still unknown. Many doctors believe it’s generally a response to trauma, either from being hit in the penis or from many small injuries that can come from hitting their partner’s pelvic bone repeatedly during sexual intercourse.
Many men also experience Peyronie’s Disease after prostate surgery and for some men, it’s simply a matter of family history or age.
There’s no clear single cause for the painful curvature, but there are treatments that can help.
Can GAINSWave Help?
Luckily, GAINSWave can most certainly help in treating Peyronie’s Disease.
GAINSWave is a natural and non-invasive treatment that delivers a premium brand of high frequency but low-intensity shock waves to the applied area.
In the case of a Peyronie’s patient, these waves are applied to the curvature and work to break down the fibrous scar tissue and plaque build-up, which improves the blood flow to the area, resulting in less painful and oftentimes better erections.
