What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction can be defined as the lack of achieving or sustaining an erection suitable enough to complete sexual intercourse. The inability to receive blood flow to the penis is what causes males to be unable to obtain or keep an erection. Day to day stress related issues can affect a man’s attempt to arouse and keep an erection. Other causes of erectile dysfunction can also include:
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Low testosterone
Men can experience erectile dysfunction at any age. Statistics increase as males age. 0-5% of males may experience erectile dysfunction. That number rises once men reach the age of 70 to 15%.
What Therapy do you offer for treating erectile dysfunction?
We have experience helping men from all different backgrounds achieve relief from their ED symptoms, in order that they can effectively address their condition. Not only can weprovide compound medications utilizing FDA-approved ingredients which will effectively address ED even when other medications have failed, but we even have experience treating men with other medical conditions which will contribute to ED symptoms. Men with diabetes, high vital signs, high cholesterol, or other cardiovascular issues are at a better risk of developing male erectile dysfunction, and their ED treatment must effectively address their symptoms without interfering with other medications they’ll be taking. At our ED clinic, our physicians understand the way to calibrate your treatment needs, in order that they can work without negatively impacting other aspects of your health.
In addition to prescribed medications, there are alternatives to the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Other medical alternatives are:
- Testosterone replacement, since erectile dysfunction may be caused by low levels of testosterone, therapy to replace it may be recommended as the first step or in combination with other therapies.
- Wave therapy – more commonly known in the medical community as shockwave therapy – is a therapy making use of the energy from acoustic waves to trigger neovascularization in specific, targeted areas of the body. Neovascularization is the process through which new blood vessels are formed, which helps improve the blood flow to the treated area. New research has shown that Wave Therapy can also be useful in the treatment of erectile dysfunction – as men who suffer from erectile dysfunction have difficulties with forming and maintaining an erection, which is caused by blood flow issues to and in the penis.
