When health issues arise, it is crucial to know what treatment options are available and safe in order to get lasting relief, but finding the best solutions to health issues can be difficult and overwhelming. Luckily, there are researchers doing the dirty work for you to help you offer the best solutions to your most difficult patients.
Li-ESWT is a treatment that has been recently growing in popularity among doctors and physicians. While common treatments for ED and Nocturia today include surgeries and medication, researchers wanted to see if there was a better way to help these patients. Here’s more about MTS Science’s discoveries concerning Li-ESWT as a treatment for erectile dysfunction and nocturia.
Li-ESWT at a Glance
Li-ESWT stands for Low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy. In simpler terms, Li-ESWT is a therapy that uses pressurized sound waves to target specific external parts of the body at a low intensity. When these sound waves hit the tissue of a problem area, disruption of the tissue occurs which leads to the facilitation of normal-functioning nerves and tissue regeneration. This non-invasive therapy has been known to treat erectile dysfunction and Nocturia.
The focus group of this research consisted of males between the ages of 54-80 who were struggling with Nocturia and/or Erectile Dysfunction. Their results after the Li-ESWT treatments offer us insights as to how effective this treatment is in helping treat ED and Nocturia.
Does Li-ESWT Really Work?
This type of therapy has been proven to be effective and safe. Each patient from the study reported that shockwave therapy treatments were quick, painless, and yielded positive results. After undergoing 6 treatments over the span of 8 weeks, lasting 15 minutes per session, patients experienced an average decrease of 64% of uncommon levels of urination at night, and a 47% decrease in symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Some patients reported seeing a decrease in frequency of urinating at night as fast as their second treatment of Li-ESWT. All patients were happy with their results and chose to continue treatments as needed.
How can my patients benefit from Li-ESWT?
Your patients can experience a variety of benefits that stem from this treatment. Treating ED and Nocturia can lead to a better night’s rest, stronger sexual health, and greater well-being overall when these basic needs to a healthy life are being met with the help of low-impact extracorporeal shockwave therapy.
