You likely already know that low intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy is an effective means to treat the symptoms of erectile dysfunction (ED), but did you know that when combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP) injection, these two modalities may multiply the effectiveness of each other?
Though not specifically studied for ED in humans, there are multiple research studies that conclude the synergistic effects of shockwave and PRP in stimulating greater growth factor expression, revascularization, and tissue regeneration.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) found its use in treating different conditions and diseases, because concentrated plasma PRP consists of many growth factors. Their interaction with surrounding cells, intracellular matrix, and mediators at the site of injection leads to tissue regeneration. Angiogenic, vasculogenic, and regenerative effects of PRP may be used for erectile dysfunction (ED) and Peyronie’s disease (PD) treatment.
The P-shot involves harvesting plasma-enriched growth factors in the blood and injecting them into specific areas of the penis. To begin, a small amount of blood is drawn from the arm, then transferred into a centrifuge, where it spins for about 10 minutes to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and the platelet-poor plasma (PPP). The PRP is then taken from the tube and re-injected into the penis, which stimulates blood flow and makes the penis appear larger and rejuvenated. (There is also a version for women called the O-shot.)
If you are not already trained in the delivery of the P-Shot® procedure, we highly recommend certification from the procedure’s creator, Dr. Charles Runels, MD. Since training with Dr. Runels ourselves, we have seen the efficacy of this technique firsthand, and, recently in combination with Shockwave therapy, have seen those results further enhanced.
