There are no restrictions on your activity after or between treatments. You can exercise, run, bike, hike, and drink beer.

Can PrimeWave treat other ailments aside from just ED?

Yes, PrimeWave can treat chronic back pain, arthritis and more.

How does acoustic wave therapy promote healing?

Each cell in the human body possesses growth factor. It is an important protein in your body that stimulates cell growth and stem cells. It is mostly dormant after puberty. The acoustic waves trigger the body to react and activate growth factor again, which in turn repairs damaged tissue and even grows new blood vessels in the penis.

Is it FDA Approved? Is it Safe?

Our device is FDA cleared for soft tissue repair and improved blood circulation, which is exactly what our protocol does. Typically new drugs are “approved” and new devices are “cleared”. The device is 100 percent safe and has been used to treat ED for over a decade in Europe. It is non–invasive and has no negative side-effects. There dozens of double-blind placebo-controlled studies that all conclude that there were no negative side effects observed from Acoustic Wave Therapy.

How long does it last?

Once the acoustic wave therapy corrects your dysfunction, the results will last for years. There are numerous studies describing the results lasting 2 years, 10 years, or the fact that the result will outlast most men. The results will obviously last longer if you are careful with your lifestyle, exercise, and diet.

Can You help prostate cancer survivors?

All types of prostate cancer treatment can cause erectile dysfunction. In the course of removing the cancerous prostate gland, due to their proximity, the nerves responsible for erection are often damaged. Additionally, radiation therapy of the prostate can lead to blockage of blood flow into the penis by damaging the penile arteries.

Acoustic Wave Therapy can repair both damage to nerves and damage to penile arteries. The success rate is lower than our typical success rate with non-prostate cancer patients {75-85 percent) but we can help. We recommend most patients who have survived prostate cancer only utilize our 12 treatment protocol and may even require further treatments.

What are the side effects?

MORE SEX! If you are wondering about “negative” side–effects then there are none. The machine and protocol we employ is non-invasive. If you look at the dozens of double-blind placebo-controlled studies on our website, every one of them points out that NO negative side-effects were observed after treatment.

Can you help someone with Peyronie’s?

Peyronie’s Disease is an inflammatory, benign condition that may cause a curvature, deformity or shortening of the erect penis. This process is produced by scar formation in the fibrous covering of the erectile bodies of the penis.

The most common treatment to correct the curvature is the surgical placement of a pump. But Acoustic Wave Therapy can help. The acoustic waves can repair the scar tissue and break up the plaque that causes the curvature.

How long does it take to start seeing results?

Most men will start to see results after 6 to 12 weeks.

Is the treatment performed by a doctor?

No. Your treatments will be done by our and highly qualified and licensed Medical technicians. They have gone through extensive training in the Prime Wave protocols. They treat dozens of patients each week and have successfully treated patients with ED related to diabetes, heart conditions, prostate issues, and Peyronie’s disease.

How do I get started?

Before starting acoustic wave therapy, we ask that you come in for a consultation with our medical staff to learn more about your medical history, goals with PrimeWave and any other issues you may be experiencing.

How does Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT) help my ED?

Acoustic wave therapy actually does two very important things. The first thing-the pressure from the acoustic waves breaks up and disintegrates the “Micro-plaque” in the blood vessels and veins in the penis. Just like other blood vessels in the body, the vessels in the penis have plaque that builds up over the decades. Acoustic wave therapy opens those blood vessels and allows your blood to flow more freely and strongly, and strong blood flow is the key to a firm and rigid erection!

The second thing that the therapy does is also the most amazing thing! The waves prompt the body to repair damaged tissue, grow new blood vessels, and re-generate nerve endings. Every time you receive a treatment, your body begins a regenerative process that has long-lasting results.

Can I keep taking my ED meds while getting treated?

Our goal at Peak Health Group is to get you to a point where ED meds are completely unnecessary. Until you reach that point you can enhance your progress with ED meds. And our doctors will be happy to prescribe those meds to you on a case by case basis at no extra charge.

Do you take insurance?

We are an out of network provider. We do not take insurance, but we will provide you with a superbill with the proper medical coding for your diagnosis and our recommended procedure. You can submit that bill to your insurance company for possible re–imbursement. If you don’t get any re-imbursement, it is a properly coded medical procedure, so it is tax deductible.

How quickly does it work?

Some men see results after just one or two treatments, but that is not typical. You need to understand that your ED is a result of plaque build-up and tissue damage that has taken decades to build up,so it will probably not reverse over–night.

You can expect to see some positive results fairly quickly. You will begin to feel a heightened sensitivity, increased firmness, even a stronger urine flow, etc. A lot of our patients are able to become sexually active during the first six treatments. Men with underlying medical issues or long–term ED will see indications that the treatment is working but may not see their best results until later rounds of treatment.

Is it painful?

Our treatment is completely painless!

Can you help patients with Diabetes?

Diabetes is one of the most common causes of ED. Men who have Diabetes are three times more likely to have Erectile Dysfunction than men who do not have Diabetes. Diabetes can cause damage to nerves (neuropathy) throughout your body–including the nerves to your penis. Damage to penile nerves can interfere with your body’s ability to send messages to and from the penis, which can lead to ED.

Acoustic Wave Therapy can repair that nerve damage and re-activate nerve endings. Diabetes can aggravate a condition known as atherosclerosis, in which the blood vessels become narrow or harden. Narrowing or hardening of these blood vessels prevent blood flow into and out of your penis, which can cause ED. Acoustic Wave Therapy can break up and disintegrate the micro–plaque narrowing your vessels and restore strong blood flow.

Men with Diabetes need to control their blood sugar levels. When your blood sugar is not under control, your body does not produce enough Nitric Oxide (NO) and vascular tissues don’t respond as effectively to NO. When enough blood flows into the penis, penile veins close off and block the blood from flowing out. This process results in an erection. If your body does not produce enough NO or if your penile tissues do not respond to NO, the pressure of the blood flowing into your penis is not sufficient to trap the blood, you penis will not get hard. Acoustic Wave Therapy prompts the body to create that crucial Nitric Oxide and also increases growth factor to repair tissue damaged from Diabetes.

What is the difference between Prime Wave and Gainswave?

The Prime Wave protocol was developed in Europe and brought to the US by medical professionals with a combined 60 years in treating erectile dysfunction. Prime Wave clinics focus only on just one thing-Acoustic Wave Therapy to improve your sexual health.

Gainswave was developed by a dermatologist. They will train and give an AWT machine to pretty much any Doctor, Physicians assistant, or Chiropractor who wants one. But most Gainswave clinics use AWT as just a small part of their practice. Their Med Techs rarely administer treatments, while our technicians do it 12-15 times a day. Gainswave clinics also use painful, outdated, and less effective machines to perform AWT.
