Low intensity shockwave therapy (LISWT) has been used as a potential treatment for penile pain, Peyronie's disease (penile curvature), and other conditions such as erectile dysfunction. The therapy works by applying low-intensity shockwaves to the penis, which stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and promotes tissue repair.
Studies have shown that LISWT can provide significant improvement in penile pain in patients with and without penile curvature, as well as improving erectile function. However, the results may vary depending on the severity of the condition, the duration of treatment, and other individual factors.
It is important to note that LISWT is not a first-line treatment for penile pain, and patients should consult with their healthcare provider to determine the most appropriate treatment plan based on their individual needs and medical history. Additionally, LISWT is not recommended for patients with certain medical conditions such as bleeding disorders, those with an pacemaker or those taking blood thinners.
