Sexual health is a cornerstone of life for most men. Unfortunately, sexual function can become impaired through the effects of aging and chronic conditions, resulting in erectile dysfunction (ED). A remarkable, non-invasive treatment called GainsWave can solve ED for the long term without pills or pain. Complete Care Clinic, in Paris, TX is pleased to offer this state-of-the-art treatment that can reinvigorate men’s sexual ability and confidence.
What Is GainsWave?
GainsWave is a treatment for ED that uses low-intensity “shockwave” therapy (LISWT) to rejuvenate the tissues and blood flow that are essential to firm, dependable erections. The waves themselves are painless and are actually sound waves, although they’re too low for you to hear. What’s “shocking” about shockwave therapy is what happens inside the body after they’re applied.
The waves from the treatment disturb the tissues in and around the penis, particularly those that serve a vascular function and are responsible for blood flow. Once these tissues have been affected by the sound waves, the body sends repairing agents that rebuild the treated area with fresh new tissue that provides greatly improved blood flow. Shockwave therapy is a natural way for the body to rebuild itself to a younger, more vigorous state.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Every case of is ED is slightly different, so individual results vary. However, through years of testing, clinical observation and patient experience, the consensus is that men who undergo the treatment can expect results that last between two and three years. Unlike oral medications for ED, the shockwave treatments fix the problem, rather than treat the symptoms.
What’s more, the treatment can be re-administered over time as needed. Instead of long-term performance anxiety and costly, potentially dangerous pills to cover up ED, men who undergo shockwave therapy can expect natural, vigorous, healthy sexual function that goes on for years.
Why Is It Needed?
The key to sexual vigor is good blood flow. When men become aroused, the penis becomes engorged with blood, which produces the erection. Adequate blood flow is not only critical in achieving an erection, it’s even more important for maintaining one.
During sex, the heart pumps furiously to provide enough blood flow to the sexual organs. When the tissues around the penis have become blocked through aging or disease, there’s not enough blood for satisfying sexual performance. Men who suffer with ED know this problem well.
Some may have no trouble with arousal but do have trouble staying erect long enough (and well enough) to satisfy themselves or their partners. Unfortunately, the psychological effects of “occasional” ED can actually make the problem worse. Worrying about whether you’ll stay hard enough for long enough is enough to create performance anxiety – another prime cause of ED.
Why Is It Better?
It’s estimated that as much as 80% of all ED problems can be traced to poor blood flow. As we age, our arteries and other vascular tissues can become blocked or worn. The conventional method of “fixing” this problem is to take a pill, which masks the problem rather than solves it.
Oral medications can open up blood flow for short periods of time, but once those are over, the problem is still there. Shockwave therapy is a better solution.
It’s Long Lasting
The effects from most pills for ED last for anywhere from minutes to hours, depending on the man, his condition, and the circumstances. Some medications work for a longer period, perhaps for an entire weekend, which is a convenient marketing claim.
However, once the effect is gone, so goes the ability to perform. Once shockwave treatment is completed, men can expect years of unassisted sexual performance without any additional thought or expense.
By the time they reach age 40, about a quarter of men have experienced ED. Past that age, the odds increase and many men look for a “cure.” Taking a pill in order to have sex is habit-forming.
It creates a frame of mind where the pill becomes necessary for sex. As a result, when there’s no pill, there’s no chance of sex. While not physically addictive, these medications are indirectly habit-forming.
No Medication Reactions
Although they are safe if taken as directed, pills for ED are not without side effects and risks. In addition to psychological dependence, many men experience headaches, dizziness, or nausea after taking these pills – hardly stimulants for satisfying sex.
Taking more than the recommended dosage is actively dangerous. And for men with cardiac issues, the pills may not be medically advisable. Interactions with alcohol and other medications create even more risks that can be avoided altogether through GainsWave.
What Is the Science?
Shockwave therapy is a member of a new class of therapies called regenerative medicine. The idea is to let the body rebuild itself, using its own natural restorative powers. Our bodies have remarkable capabilities to replace damaged tissue. This is how cut skin gets a scar and how broken bones knit themselves together.
As we age, these restorative powers unfortunately decline. Since the body doesn’t see ED as an “injury,” the tissues needed for reliable sex don’t get restored. In the GainsWave therapy, the low-energy waves create disruption of the tissues in the area being treated, in and around the penis.
By “breaking up” the tissue, two positive responses occur. First, any buildup of plaque that’s been clogging the blood vessels are broken up. Next, the body sends out healing agents to rebuild fresh tissue over the disturbed tissue caused by the treatment. In effect, the therapy hacks the body into fixing itself.
What Is the Clinical Evidence?
Shockwave treatment has been used for over two decades in Europe, with great success. The official brand name for the treatment in the U.S. is GainsWave, and it works the same way. More than 30 clinical studies have shown a success rate of greater than 75% of all patients in solving their ED problems.
Out in the real world, positive patient testimonials are closer to 80% satisfied that they had the treatment. Because shockwave therapy is regenerative medicine, the therapy has been used for many different applications, including joint injuries, dermatology, sports medicine, and even hair restoration.
There are hundreds of clinical trials regarding the safety and positive outcomes of this therapy. Some 30 million American men seek treatment for ED each year. GainsWave offers a safe, long-lasting option that’s safer than pills, and over the course of time, also more economical, considering the costs of these medications.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Through more than 20 years of use in the commercial market, there have been no recorded instances of negative after-effects. Compare this to some of the more troubling side effects that can be experienced from ED pills, such as insomnia, joint pain, back and muscle pain, and photophobia (oversensitivity to light).
The taking of any medication on a long-term basis is bound to have unintended effects. This is especially true for men aged 50 and older, many of whom take other medications each day. As the medications add up, they can interact with each other in unintended ways, in a phenomenon known as polypharmacy.
Pills for ED are serious medicine, even if we don’t want to look at them that way. Solutions without side effects – like shockwave therapy – are not only safer, they’re better.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Just about all men that have experienced ED can consider this state-of-the-art treatment. It is safe, non-invasive, and convenient. Even patients with conditions like diabetes and cardiac disease, who are advised not to take oral medications for ED, can be successfully treated.
Some patients who live with an implanted device, such as a pacemaker, may be steered toward different treatment options.

Not Just for ED!
The rejuvenating effects of GainsWave therapy aren’t just for men who have a problem with ED. Even men who aren’t troubled by erectile dysfunction can enjoy a dramatically heightened sex life through these simple treatments. The results can be a revelation, with better erections that stay harder and last longer. You and your partner may be amazed at what you experience together.
For many men, especially those middle-aged and older, the therapy can bring back all the vigor of youth. Other men are even luckier, with the treatment bringing them to a new place entirely, and an ability to experience sex in a way that they’ve never known before.
So much of sex involves emotional components that may not have been in place back during your sexual prime. After all, you were just a teenager. To be able to have the sexual potency of a young man once again can be a life-changer.
How Long Does It Take to Work?
Restoring your sexual potency is a process. The treatments themselves are spread out over the course of weeks. The number of treatments needed depends on several factors, including your size, weight, age, and overall health.
Some patients report feeling positive effects immediately following their first treatment. However, the job of rebuilding tissue is something the body needs time for. The full rebuilding process can take anywhere from two to six months.
Can I Help Myself Get Ready?
Absolutely. Remember that goal number one for sexual performance is good blood flow. What the treatment is doing is rebuilding portions of your circulatory system. Along with the treatments, you can help improve your blood flow by paying attention to diet, getting enough exercise, and keeping your stress under control.
Managing these factors will help you create a “clean canvas” for the treatment to take effect. Look for foods that are known to be good for circulation. Citrus fruits like oranges are natural blood thinners, and watermelon has high levels of lycopene, which is known to improve circulation.
Chili peppers like cayenne are fabulous for the circulatory system. Green tea is bursting with anti-oxidants that widen the blood vessels and increase blood flow. Be sure to get enough sunlight (vitamin D), and if you smoke, now is the time to finally stop.
How Can I Get Started?
Frustration with sexual performance and/or ED is something you don’t live with alone. Your partner is perhaps frustrated too, or worse, confused and hurt. Family dynamics can suffer from a diminished sex life, and the frustration from it can radiate out to friends and co-workers.
You don’t have to live this way anymore, and you don’t have to go through this alone. You can regain your best sexual self once again – without expensive, habit-forming pills or invasive surgery. Contact us today at Complete Care Clinic, in Paris, TX. We are your partners in sexual restoration.
