Shockwave Therapy for Erectile Dysfunction
What is POTENTwave™?
POTENTwave™ is our proprietary, proven, and pain-free approach to using certain kinds of sound waves in a certain way to improve erectile function or treat erectile dysfunction. It’s our proprietary alternative to GAINSWave® shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction.
Why do we provide POTENTwave™ as a GAINSWave® alternative?
We provide POTENTwave™ because erectile dysfunction has become ubiquitous nowadays for various reasons. 50% of men over 30 years old, 60% of men over 40 years old, and almost every man over 50 years old suffers from serious erectile dysfunction. This causes men serious distress.
How does POTENTwave™ work as a GAINSWave® alternative?
POTENTwave™ shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction works to improve erectile dysfunction by regenerating and repairing old and damaged blood vessels, including those of the corpus cavernosum and corpus spongiosum. This means improved blood flow to the penis, improved capacity of the penis to fill with blood, and an improved ability of the penis to trap blood once it’s there. These are the three keys to improved erectile function.
These pictures show that the penis is a specialized chamber of blood vessels, and its function depends on how well these specialized blood vessels are able to expand and fill with blood. To become truly hard and erect, these specialized blood vessels must completely fill so that they compress the veins just beneath the surface, so that blood cannot flow away from the penis.
Does POTENTwave™ shockwave therapy really help men with erectile dysfunction?
Yes – in most cases it helps a lot.
Don’t just take our word for it. Look at the 20+ years of literature.
More than 40 high-quality studies have been performed since 1999 that reasonably demonstrate that certain combinations of frequency and wavelength of ultrasound waves can be highly effective for erectile dysfunction caused by aging, cardiovascular disease, or diabetes if applied using certain devices in certain ways.
For your convenience, here are the six best studies:
Many other studies have been performed, but these six are the most informational. Most of the other studies repeat what these say in a less informational manner. If you would like to read more studies, go search for more studies online at National Center for Biotechnology Information of the United States Library of Medicine.
How quickly does POTENTwave™ improve erectile function? How long does this improvement last?
Although many men will experience some obvious improvement after just their first POTENTwave™ treatment, the benefits are usually progressive and cumulative rather than immediate. Most men will continue to experience progressive and cumulative improvement of erectile dysfunction week after week after week during the several months following their series of treatments. This is because it’s stimulating the regeneration and repair of the tissues of the penis. This takes time.
For the same reason that the benefits are gradually acquired the benefits are very long-lasting. Studies have so far demonstrated that the improvement acquired from the erectuke dysfunction treatment is maintained for at least two to three years following the treatment, even without further treatment for erectile dysfunction. Although this is the case, it does make sense to receive follow up treatments periodically to better maintain acquired improvements of erectile function.
Who is a good candidate for POTENTwave™ shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction – our GAINSWave® alternative?
We reviewed all of the studies, and then administered to our own patients the different combinations demonstrated in the studies to work well. After two years of experience helping many of our patients administering these different combinations, we’ve determined for ourselves the certain combinations of frequency and wavelength and the certain methods of administration that work the best for our patients.
Our high-frequency low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy treatment works very well for men under 40 years old. It still works for men over 40 years old as long as they’re on properly prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. It still works for men over 50 years old – but not as well and more treatments are required – as long as they’re on properly prescribed testosterone replacement therapy.
Who is not a good candidate for POTENTwave™ shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction – our GAINSWave® alternative?
Our high-frequency low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy treatment doesn’t work nearly as well for men over 40 years old who suffer from low testosterone and forego properly prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. Our clinic does not usually recommend this treatment for men over 50 years old who are not on properly prescribed testosterone replacement therapy and properly prescribed growth hormone replacement therapy. Our clinic does not recommend this treatment for men over 60 years old who are not on properly prescribed testosterone replacement therapy and properly prescribed growth hormone replacement therapy.
This treatment is not effective for everyone. There’s no such thing as a cure-all erectile dysfunction treatment for everyone who suffers from erectile dysfunction for every cause of erectile dysfunction.
In our experience this treatment is not effective for erectile dysfunction caused by low testosterone or low growth hormone, psychologic causes, spinal cord injuries, or for men who’ve suffered from erectile dysfunction due to local nerve damage following prostate surgery to treat prostate cancer, and who’ve waited more than 6 months to seek treatment. This treatment is not safe or recommended for men who have penile implants or who are on anticoagulants.
How did Dr. Robert Strait, N.D. develop POTENTwave™ as a GAINSwave® alternative for erectile dysfunction treatment?
I learned about GAINSwave® while attending a World Congress in Las Vegas in December of 2017 organized by the American Academy for Anti-Aging Medicine. By this time I had already successfully treated more than 3,000 men for low testosterone and specifically more than 1,000 men for erectile dysfunction using other methods of treatment. Full Potential HRT Clinic was called Full Potential Men’s Clinic for its first 3 and 1/2 years. During that time we only treated men. Thousands of men. Erectile dysfunction has always been our specialty. As an expert in erectile dysfunction and treatments for erectile dysfunction, I attended multiple GAINSwave® workshops that were offered as a part of the conference in order to determine whether this treatment method was worthwhile.
I determined from these workshops that this method of treatment was definitely worth evaluating. I then took the time to carefully read and analyze every single study ever published that evaluated the efficacy and safety of high-frequency low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy for erectile dysfunction. This required hundreds of hours over several months. During the summer of 2018 I invited many of my long-time patients to volunteer to help me to evaluate the different combinations of soundwaves that could be applied in certain ways to determine the most effective combination and the most effective way to apply that most effective combination. By late summer of 2018 I determined my first proprietary POTENTwave™ treatment method. Our team of doctors has kept up with the research since then, and we’ve been further improving our proprietary POTENTwave™ treatment method during the last two years while helping more than 100 of our own patients to maximize their sexual potency and reverse their erectile dysfunction.
How Does POTENTwave™ Compare to Other Erectile Dysfunction Treatments?
Severe Testosterone Deficiency is the Most Common Cause of Erectile Dysfunction
Properly prescribed testosterone replacement therapy is the single most effective treatment for erectile dysfunction caused by severe testosterone deficiency due to aging (also known as andropause), which is the most common primary cause of erectile dysfunction.
To test this fact again, we recently ran the numbers again for men who are concierge patients enrolled in our Gold Standard Concierge TRT Program, and we again found that about 75-80% of men who initially suffer from both erectile dysfunction and severe testosterone deficiency (Low T) are cured of their erectile dysfunction during their first six – seven months of properly prescribed testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) – the way we prescribe TRT at Full Potential Men’s Clinic. As long as they continue to maintain their hormones in their ideal ranges they remain cured of erectile dysfunction.
For this reason, we recommend our Gold Standard Concierge TRT Program for older men who suffer from both erectile dysfunction and severe testosterone deficiency due to either andropause or other causes who want the most comprehensive approach to their erectile dysfunction – and who want to generally feel their best and age as healthfully as possible.
Men who combine POTENTwave™ with our Gold Standard Concierge TRT Program experience significantly more long-term improvement of erectile dysfunction.
Can Sufficient Improvement Be Guaranteed if I Purchase POTENTwave™?
At Full Potential Men’s Clinic, we’re straightforward and honest. We take pride in the fact that we don’t try to sell POTENTwave™ or any other products or services. Instead, we share with our patients our ideas, experience, and our expertise, and we let them decide.
We don’t recommend POTENTwave™ for every man that asks about it. We wouldn’t be doing the best job of helping our patients if we did. We recommend POTENTwave™ for patients who we believe will benefit from it, and we’re careful to prescribe a POTENTwave™ regimen that is realistic along with realistic expectations for each patient. It’s very unusual at our office for our patients to be surprised or disappointed by the results of any treatment that we recommend. It’s the same with POTENTwave™.
In medicine, if anyone ever guarantees you something, run the other direction as fast as you can. Okay, I know, but you want to know if it’ll work for you before you purchase a series of six LI-ESWT treatments, right? I totally understand. I would want the same thing if I were in your shoes. If you’ve read this far and you’re not sure, and you’d like to get a better idea for whether POTENTwave™ is an erectile dysfunction treatment that will work for you, and how long it might take to get the kind of improvement of erectile dysfunction you want, then you should schedule your Expert E.D. Evaluation & POTENTwave™ Consult.
Is There a Money-Back Guarantee if I’m Unsatisfied With the Results of POTENTwave™?
We don’t try to sell POTENTwave™ to every man that asks about it. We recommend POTENTwave™ for patients who we believe will benefit from it, and we’re careful to prescribe a POTENTwave™ regimen that is realistic along with realistic expectations for each patient. It’s very unusual at our office for our patients to be surprised or disappointed by their results from using POTENTwave™.
We’re confident that if we’ve recommended POTENTwave™ for you that it will work the way we say it will if you follow your prescribed regimen. We’re always here to help our patients, and in fact we work really hard to help our patients, and we hope that any patient who’s not experiencing the expected results with POTENTwave™ would contact us, so that we can work and help to make sure they do experience the expected results.
If despite the fact that we prescribe a POTENTwave™ regimen along with realistic expectations based on our expertise and a prolonged discussion with you about the treatment and specifically a statement that there is no guarantee – because every situation and man is different – you are upset with the results of the treatment, because they’re not the results that you expected based on our discussion of potential results – we can have a discussion about the possibility of a partial refund, but as you can imagine, we would be taken advantage of if we tried to have an official money-back guarantee, because someone could get essentially cured of their erectile dysfunction, and then get their money back.

Other Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Can the POTENTwave™ erectile dysfunction treatment be used to prevent erectile dysfunction?
Yes, absolutely. In addition to preventing erectile dysfunction, it can be used to further enhance erectile function. It can increase firmness and ability to maintain an erection even if one doesn’t experience anything that one would call actual erectile dysfunction. It can improve sensitivity of the penis, by recruiting stem cells that grow nerve tissue. My only precaution is to be careful not to use it too much so that one doesn’t make their penis too sensitive. I use POTENTwave™ personally in order to not only maintain excellent erectile function but to OPTIMIZE it. I want to have my erections be at their full potential too as I gracefully age.
Can POTENTwave™ be used in addition to other erectile dysfunction treatments?
Yes, absolutely. Many men who initially suffer from mild erectile dysfunction just won’t need to do anything else besides POTENTwave™, because they’ll quickly no longer suffer from erectile dysfunction, but for men with moderate or severe erectile dysfunction for whom it will take more time for them to experience sufficient improvement of their erectile dysfunction POTENTwave™ works very well – and actually works even better – when used alongside any of the most commonly prescribed treatments. Depending on the case, for men with severe erectile dysfunction we often recommend one or more of these other erectile dysfunction treatments so that they can experience maximum improvement as quickly as possible.
How is POTENTwave™ Performed?
After getting you comfortable in our exam chair, we apply a numbing cream and then give it several minutes to work, and then we apply ultrasound gel to the skin of the shaft of your penis, as well as to the erectile and muscular tissue in the area between your penis and anus, and then we apply the LI-ESWT device to send soundwaves into these areas in a specified regimen for 30 minutes.
What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is defined in many different ways. Based on our experience with thousands of men, our physicians choose to define erectile dysfunction as the inability of a man to achieve and / or maintain a full and potent erection while engaged in sexual activity.
How common is erectile dysfunction?
Very common, but its prevalence is under-estimated, because men don’t go to the doctor, and when they do, they don’t report it. As it is, it’s estimated that more than 50% of men over 40 years old, and more than 70% of men over 65 years old suffering from at least some significant degree of erectile dysfunction.
What causes erectile dysfunction?
The most common cause is atrophy (shrinking and weakening) of the penis along with its blood vessels, nerves, and structural components due to aging. A large part of aging’s contribution to erectile dysfunction is that it leads naturally to severe testosterone deficiency either before or at andropause, along with other hormone deficiencies. The next most common cause by far is decreased blood flow to the penis due to cardiovascular disease. The next most common cause by far is decreased blood flow to the penis and nerve damage to the penis due to diabetes. A less common, but still overall common cause of erectile dysfunction is that it is a side-effect of a medication. For example, antihypertensive, anti-anxiety, and anti-depressant medications are notorious for causing erectile dysfunction, as are many other medications. POTENTWave™ ultrasound erectile dysfunction treatment can be used to treat erectile dysfunction in all of these cases.
