At Integrative Health Matters, we are pleased to offer a variety of well-researched healing modalities to East Texans. One of our offerings is GAINSWave. GAINSWave is a novel therapeutic option for erectile dysfunction. GAINSWave uses low intensity shock waves to induce the release of growth and healing factors. Men with ED typically undergo 6 or 12 treatments and begin seeing results within 4 weeks.
Dr. Carmack chose to bring GAINSWave to Integrative Health Matters when she reviewed the medical literature and statement on the treatment of erectile dysfunction from the American Urologic Association. Although GAINSWave is still considered “investigational,” she saw that several studies have shown significant improvements in sexual function, while there have been no major side effects reported (For more information, see Guideline Statement 23, click on “Discussion”). This is in stark contrast to pills, which can be inconvenient and cause negative effects (such as blue vision with Viagra or back pain with Cialis); penile injections, which are uncomfortable for many men; and penile implants, which carry substantial risks of surgery and infectious complications. She’s been impressed with the results of GAINSWave therapy, and so have our patients.
Low intensity shock wave therapy can also be used for musculoskeletal issues, such as plantar fasciitis or tendon strains. The improved in blood flow stimulated by the treatment can speed healing and reduce pain.
GAINSWave is a simple, painless therapy, and many patients have benefited from its use. If you have a condition for which you are interested in trying GAINSWave, please call today for more information.
