Platelet-rich plasma therapy, sometimes called PRP therapy or autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) therapy, attempts to take advantage of the blood’s natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, or even bone.
Although not considered standard practice, many people are turning to PRP injections to treat an expanding list of orthopedic conditions, including osteoarthritis. It is most commonly used for knee osteoarthritis but may be used on other joints as well.
We are excited to announce that we now offer Shockwave Therapy to help treat ED, so you can enjoy a healthy sex life that leaves you and your partner happy, connected, and satisfied.
Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment option used in the past to treat kidney stones and specific orthopedic injuries. Only recently has it been used to treat ED. Over 40% of men experience sexual performance issues by the time they celebrate their 40th birthday. This number continues to climb by 10% every year. Statistically, 6 out of every ten men will experience ED.
Why are the numbers so high? As we age, blood vessels in the penis deteriorate, causing decreased blood flow to the penis during arousal. In addition, there can be other contributing factors to ED, such as smoking, consuming alcohol, an exercise regimen (or lack thereof), blood pressure levels, and testosterone levels. Usually, it’s a combination of factors that lead to ED, but hope is not lost.
At Longevity, we use cutting-edge technology combined with a multifaceted approach to helping with ED. We don’t rely on just one course of treatment. We utilize a well-rounded approach that falls under the IntraPulse umbrella. Electric ShockWave Therapy is used with other protocols, so our patients get the best results possible. The result is that our patients get to enjoy an active sex life with their partners well into their golden years.
ShockWave therapy entails using high-frequency acoustic waves to activate the body's natural healing process to repair blood flow to the blood vessels in the penis. In addition to repairing the current blood vessels to allow for better blood flow, this ShockWave therapy may help the body create new pathways for blood flow to the affected areas.
Over 76% of patients who have undergone ShockWave therapy found it successful in treating their ED symptoms. In many, the symptoms were lessened, if not eradicated. If you are suffering from ED, consider the Longevity approach so you can enjoy a healthy sex life with your partner for years to come.
