Shockwave Therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Medications do not work for all men with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and as mentioned elsewhere on this website, surgery may be limited due to a patient’s health and ability to tolerate an invasive surgery. Naturally, many BPH patients dread surgery due to its associated pains and complications afterward while some people’s conditions might not be ideal for surgery.

What’s more, after some surgical procedures sexual activity can be more difficult.

These are just a few of the reasons why interest in shockwave therapy for BPH is growing.

Extracorporeal ShockWave Therapy (ESWT) is a clinically proven and highly effective treatment that has been used for many years for the treatment of a large range of conditions including Erectile Dysfunction (ED) and Peyronie’s disease. What’s more ESWT for the prostate is safe, minimally invasive and can ease or eliminate urination and ejaculation problems.

As a result, many doctors and urologists around the world are excited about the prospects that an effective management solution for BPH treatment has been discovered.

What Happens During BPH Shockwave Treatment

ESWT for BPH involves the application of acoustic pressure waves to the perineum area near the prostate using a Shockwave device.

The shockwaves work in:

  • Restoring Elasticity of the Prostatic Tissue
  • Breaking up Scarred Prostatic Tissue
  • Breaking up Fibrotic Prostatic Tissue – a condition in many older men
  • Dissipating Calcification
  • Restore Normal Blood Flow to the Prostate

As a result of shockwave treatment, patients usually find the following benefits:

  • Easier Urination
  • Increased Urination Flow Rate
  • Alleviation or Elimination of Pain When Urinating
  • Less Frequent Need to Urinate
  • Makes Ejaculation Easier
  • Alleviation or Dissipation of Pelvic Pain

How does Shockwave Therapy Treatment for BHP Work?

ESWT works by sending an external low-frequency acoustic energy waves to internal tissues. These low-energy waves help to improve blood flow, repair an affected part of the body, and regenerate new tissue from the existing one and help achieve internal healing.  The Shockwave treatment will not only repair the damaged parts of your reproductive organ but will also stimulate the natural process of urination after the treatment leaving the majority of men pain free and without on-going urinary symptoms.

Shockwave treatment is also an excellent therapy for men with a history of poor response to other medical treatment and were not candidates for surgery.

How Effective Is Shockwave Therapy for BPH?

The efficacy of shockwave therapy for BPH treatment has been established by numerous studies undertaken around the world and published in medical journals.

For example, in one study doctors and patients recorded no complications except for mild perineum pain or discomfort that occasionally occurred during the process. This pain usually vanished within three days. For some of the patients, urination was smoother and there was no record of urinary retention during the study. Their quality of life improved as well as their erectile function.

About Focused Shockwave Therapy

At MansMatters we use focused shockwave therapy, due to the increased treatment options, treatment depth, treatment precision and patient comfort.

Compared to other shockwave treatments focused shockwave therapy has a smaller focal point that delivers greater accuracy and is able to penetrate deeper into the tissues and providing all of its power at the designated depth.

Focused shockwaves are generated electromagnetically through a cylindrical coil creating opposing magnetic fields when current is applied. This causes a submerged membrane to move and generate a pressure wave in the surrounding fluid medium. These propagate through the medium without any loss in energy with a small focal zone. At the site of actual wave generation, the amount of energy dispersed is minimal. This limits damage at the skin and to underlying soft tissues.

We have successfully used focused shockwaves to treat numerous conditions including:

  • Acute injuries in elite athletes
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Peyronie’s Disease
  • Bone and Stress Fractures
  • Achilles Pain
  • Tibialis Posterior Tendon Syndrome
  • Tendinopathies and Enthesopathies
  • Wound Healing and other dermatological & aesthetic problems
