Radial Shockwave Therapy Treatment
How Does Radial Shockwave Therapy Differ from Focused Wave Therapy?
Radial Wave Therapy and Focused Wave Therapy are both used to treat erectile dysfunction. Radial is more common in the United States and Focused is more common in Europe.
With Radial Wave, the waves come out of the device like light comes out of a flashlight in a cone shape. So the energy is most intense right at the tip of the device. Thus it is very good at treating the superficial tissue (1-3 cm deep) but does not reach the deep tissue.
How does Radial Shockwave Therapy Work?
The best medical practices that use wave therapy to treat Erectile Dysfunction are using a combination of both radial and focused, so they treat both the superficial and the deep tissue. Here at Forge Medical Group, we have been using both modalities and the results are much better than using radial or focused alone.
The most important questions to ask when choosing a practice are who is doing the treatments and what devices are they using. Treatments are best done by the doctor and the device should be a Storz radial and a Storz focused device. Storz is the Swiss company that developed the first wave therapy devices and is the largest and most well respected of the device manufacturers.

Who does Wave Therapy work for?
Acoustic Wave Therapy works for men who have mild, moderate or severe erectile dysfunction. These men often use tadalafil or sildenafil to help achieve an erection. After treatment with Wave Therapy, as many as 90% of men who use these medications will no longer need them to attain an erection. It is also a great option for men who cannot tolerate the side effects of these medications. If they no longer work well, or if you were using injections that no longer work well, you need Wave Therapy.
How long does wave therapy take?
Acoustic Wave Therapy takes time to work. You may need several treatments and you may need to continue using other types of therapy for a while, depending on how severe your erectile dysfunction is. Most patients find that acoustic wave therapy is well tolerated and that they see benefits after consistent treatment, giving them more confidence both in and out of the bedroom. Most men find they are able to perform better when it matters without relying on prescription medications.
When should I start Wave Therapy?
It is a well-known fact that the earlier a diagnosis is made and treatment started, the better the patient’s outcome will be. When it comes to erectile dysfunction, early diagnosis and treatment are vital if the problem is to be corrected and further deterioration is to be prevented. The longer you wait, the worse it gets and the harder it is to treat!
