According to the researchers, "extracorporeal shock wave therapy" significantly improved sexual function among men involved in the study, Live Science reported.

The participants underwent 12 shock treatments over nine weeks, and one month after the last treatment, participants began taking ED drugs.

They were also required to fill out a questionnaire to assess their sexual function and scores ranged from 6 to 30, with scores lower than 10 indicating severe ED, and scores from 26 to 30 indicating normal erectile function.

On an average, the men started to see a benefit three weeks after the treatment and eight men achieved normal sexual function.

The patients continued to see improvements two months after the treatment had stopped, with almost 30 percent of them achieving normal sexual function and no longer requiring medications.

The study has been published online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

There are a number of treatments for erection problems. Doctors usually start with lifestyle changes and medicines. They usually don't advise surgery or other treatments unless those first steps don't help. Treatment can include: * Making lifestyle changes, such as avoiding tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. It may also help to talk about the issue with your partner, do sensual exercises, and get counseling. * Finding and then stopping medicines that may be causing the problem. In some cases you can take a different medicine that does not cause erection problems. * Taking prescription medicine that can help you get erections. These include pills such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra). Check with your doctor to see if it is safe for you to take one of these medicines with your other medicines. These can be dangerous if you have heart disease that requires you to take nitroglycerin or other medicines that contain nitrates. * Taking medicines and getting counseling for depression or anxiety. * Using vacuum devices or getting shots of medicine into the penis. * Having surgery to place an implant in the penis.

There are many safer and guaranteed medications which help men get out of the Ed blues. Pills like viagra, kamagra help blood flow in the male organs hence reducing erectile dysfunction.

A recent study says that a shock therapy to your private parts can actually restore erection. Before you get a shock after reading the above line, be informed that these are just low energy sound waves and it does not hurt your private parts.
