What is Peyronie’s Disease (PD)?

PD is a noncancerous condition resulting from fibrous scar tissue that develops on your penis and can cause curved, sometimes painful erections.

It affects almost 10% of men at some point in their lives and can often be traced back to some form of injury.

So can PD eventually cause Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?

Or can your ED lead to PD?

The short answer is YES and YES.

While not everyone with ED has PD, it’s quite common that if you have PD you also might be suffering from ED.

Focused Shockwave Therapy, or LI-ESWT (Low Intensity- Extracorporeal ShockWave Therapy), is a painless, side-effect free, non-invasive treatment for both conditions.

The success rates in treating Peyronie’s using Focused Shockwave Therapy for certain symptoms is quite impressive.

The peer-reviewed studies show excellent results for plaque reduction, pain reduction, improved erectile function, sexual satisfaction…

The results on improving penile curvature are somewhat mixed although this 2019 study DID show a statistically significant reduction in curvature.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) in Peyronie’s Disease: Clinical Efficacy and Safety from a Single-Arm Observational Study

TLDR: 325 patients participated in the study, and using the STORZ SD1 Duolith shockwave therapy system, (Same device we use at FocusWave Clinic) shows very encouraging results concluding that Focused Shockwave Therapy could be considered a safe and efficient minimally invasive option for the management of the patients suffering from PD.

TLDR: An Australian study showed that over 70% of patients would recommend the treatment to other men suffering.

There are many other encouraging studies that show Focused Shockwaves have the potential to improve and possibly reverse PD & ED.

That said, Focused Shockwave Therapy doesn’t work for everyone, and perhaps it is possible to reduce the number of unsuccessful patients by improving diet, lifestyle, or some other naturopathic solution.

But because it’s non-invasive, treatments are short and painless and side effect free, and exceptionally safe by all regulatory standards, iFocused Shockwave Therapy definitely holds a lot of promise to improve your condition.
